The broker does provide typical spreads, leverage and commission for the different instruments available to trade on. There is also a fee for overnight trading.
There is a choice between web based and app based (phones and desktops) client. In both cases, trading is done via standard MetaTrader 5. Both versions use a simple but relatively efficient design.

Then you will almost instantly receive an email with your login information and a link to download the desktop app if you want to use it.
Platform MT5 is somewhat curt, but effective. It offers a possibility to enable one-click trading, which allows very fast placing of orders, be careful to choose to allow it. A few accidental clicks can lead to disaster. In that case, just enter the quantity and click buy or sell. Alternatively, click the new order button and open a window with additional customization options. These include choosing between a trade type (Pending Order or Market Execution) and customizing the order itself, such as volume, stop loss, etc.
There is a limited amount of information available such as charts over time and trading sentiment, but there are impressive customization possibilities with various charts, lines and grids. Features like this are present all over the platform and they help traders a lot.
