Advantages and disadvantages

Every Broker has its pros and cons, let’s have a look at the ones that elevate & denounce eTrader .

eTrader Pros
  • Low minimum deposit
  • International support
eTrader Cons
  • No e-wallet payments
  • A little bit above average spreads
  • The minimum withdrawal amount is $250
  • No CFDs on cryptocurrencies

To sum up the eTrader Review

eTrader adheres to strict regulatory guidelines of the CySEC. The broker has an attractive minimum deposit, but be aware that it is only for credit card payments. For bank transfers the minimum deposit is set at 250 dollars, not 100. Spreads that the broker charges are a little bit above average for the FX industry.

The number of available CFDs is decent, the broker even features CFDs on some interesting stock titles that are specific to certain countries in the EU. That being said, I am missing CFDs on cryptocurrencies, it would be nice to see at least an option to trade CFD on Bitcoin. What I really don’t like about the broker is that the minimum withdrawal amount is $250 and that one can use only wire transfer for withdrawals.
