Our Story

The easyMarkets founders back in 2001 recognized that there was a complete lack of democracy in trading. Simply put; it was the banks, or nothing. The requirements for successful trading involved having enough capital (often meaning tens of thousands of dollars) to ward off issues such as wide spreads and slippage. We changed that by opening forex trading up to anyone and everyone who wanted to be involved.

Back in 2001, the industry only offered Forex trading, which we fundamentally changed as well. We made trading more accessible by allowing traders to deposit just $25 via credit cards. Our customers found this system favourable, and responded with their loyalty -in turn, helping us grow. Subsequently, Our CFD offerings would grow to include indices, energy, metals, cryptocurrencies and more. Because of this diversification of services, we rebranded from easy-Forex to easyMarkets.

easyMarkets is proud that it has successfully accomplished its goal of democratising trading and making it more accessible and easy -but still we seek to offer more. It is for that reason we have continuously sought to innovate, in order to provide our customers with the best possible toolkit for trading. Tools such as a free guaranteed stop loss, inside viewer, freeze rate, dealCancellation, and our most innovative tool yet: easyTrade.*
