Equiti Pros
  • Tight spreads for the premiere account holders
Equiti Cons
  • Limited number of CFDs on stocks + no CFDs on cryptocurrencies

To sum up the Equiti Review

Equiti adheres to strict regulatory guidelines of the FCA. The broker charges average spreads for the executive account (starting from $500), but they also offer premiere account where the spreads are significantly tighter (unfortunately, this account type starts from $20,000).

The amount of available CFDs is not particularly attractive, there are no cryptocurrency pairs and the amount of available stocks is poor. That being said, there is an option to try the broker and its trading conditions via a free demo.
