Berkeley latest reviews

Probably the oldest and most respectful broker in UK. Berkeley let me open and verify an account, as soon as I deposited $5000 wire transfer. They are able to accept customers from over the globe including US residents. You won't find any reviews that berkeley stole money or use some sort of aggressive marketing. When I emailed them asking for an explanation they always answer the emails. Chat support is available 24/7. I strongly recommend this broker, even if you're outside of UK. Their competence and support on the top! But it is not only about excellent service, you get access to futures, options and other markets.

It turns out to be much better brokerage firm than I expected. I trade most of the time on Metatrader 4 platform and it's quite well process taking into account all conditions provided by broker. Berkeley is a good option for those who are looking out for a solid and decent fx broker. I've done comparison with two other companies and it's execution on mt4 platform outruns execution of those two brokers I used in comparison. Broker offers large number of currency pairs, metals,... Just one thing that I don't like is they don't have stocks for trading.

Berkeley is my best choice! With full access to all markets including FX and leading edge solutions, I finally got all I needed for success. It is absolutely right that trading is complex and risky business. I have so many tools to use. From eSignal platform to countless variety of markets to trade. My own approach based on fundamental analyses and it so easy to get insights from market research on site. This brokerage house operates from 1987 and I have no doubt it will work for many more years. Well-regulated, strong reputation and smooth transactions of each trade. The best one.
