To sum up the HWFX Review
HWFX adheres to strict regulatory guidelines of the CySEC. The minimum spreads are at HWFX quite attractive, what are the actual/avarage spread charges is, however, unknown to us. The amount of available CFDs is not particularly attractive, especially when we look at the number of tradable stocks and indices (not to mention there are no CFDs on a single cryptocurrency).
