About the company:

Eightcap is a forex broker offering over 25 currency pairs, indices and commodities on the MetaTrader 4 trading platform.

About company. Safety of funds

Eightcap was established in 2009 in Australia. The company underwent significant structural and management changes in 2014-2015. EightCap started anew with two additional offices in London and Shanghai. The headquarters of the company remained in Melbourne, Australia.

Eightcap ECN/STP is represented by EightCap Pty Ltd. and regulated by the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC).

ASIC requires licensed financial services providers to meet strict capital requirements: to hold at least $1 million and implement internal procedures of accounting and audits. Besides, regulated entities are required to report regularly to ASIC.

The Australian regulator, however, does not include any compensation scheme for investors in case a licensed company becomes insolvent.

Trading conditions

Eightcap offers its clients several trading accounts. The only difference between the Raw and Standard accounts is the spread’s size. The first account’s spread starts from 0.0 pip; and the second one, from 1 pip. On average, the spread is 1.2 pips on EUR/USD.

Traders are required to deposit $100 in order to open an account with EightCap. There are 40 assets to choose from: currency pairs, CFDs, gold, silver and crude oil.

EightCap provides leverage ratios up to 1:500 on both accounts. Hedging, scalping and expert advisors are also allowed. In addition, a MAMM/PAMM account allows traders to maintain several accounts at the same time and place trades simultaneously on all of them. Demo account is available.

Trading platforms

EightCap supports the most widely used MetaTrader 4 (MT4) platform. It is available for PC, Mac, and mobile devices. MT4 provides all the tools and resources a trader needs: a number of technical indicators, advanced charting package, a wide range of Expert Advisors, and testing environment for them.

What is more, this broker has partnered with Myfxbook to offer AutoTrade – a platform that enables clients to track, compare, analyze, and share their trading activities and copy deals of any top successful traders.

Joined these guys three weeks ago trading on MT5. Have been trading through MT4 for the last 2 years but eventually have made the move to MT5 to access some different instruments as well as some new tools. Can't reccomend the move more highly! As for 8cap, they've been helpful in getting me set up and no issues finding a few smart positions on EUR/USD recently. Will let you guys know more once I've spent some more time with these guys.

I don't often leave reviews but wanted to take some time to give some feedback on Eightcap and my dealings with them over the last 2-3 years. I've been trading for the last nine years and have been around enough to understand what constitutes a quality broker. I joined EightCap back in 2016, had some small investments in fx but then moved back to another broker based in the UK. Since then I was watching the market fairly closely to ensure I'm getting a fair experience and also to ensure I'm keeping up with the market in general. I stopped trading with Eightcap for about 6 months but then got back in touch with them in early 2017 to get my account back up and running. They were a little slow in response times back in 2017 but since then i've seen the service flourish. They've picked up their game in terms of product and technolgoy offering and have now become a stable broker I can rely on. I do a lot of travel with work throughout the UK, France & Australia no matter which team of theirs I speak to I always get treated with respect and have ended up developing some quality relationships with some of the staff there. From a profitiability perspective I've manage to create relatively consistent growth on my investments into forex and indices. I've made mistakes when trading previously but managing to always learn from those mistakes is critical. Managing your emotions is a very important aspect of what can be an enjoyable and frustrating expeirnce. Out of all investing that I do, i trade forex and indices at about 20% of my total investments. Happy to say that Eightcap have enabled me to enter markets with the conditions I need to get to the positions I need to be in. Impressed with how they've growth their business and happy to be apart of the journey with them. Looking forward to a big 2019!

Just switched to MT5 from 4 after 3 years on MT4. Issue with Eightcap currenlty is I can't access US shares but i'm told they'll be bringing them on shortly. Eightcap have improved a fair bit over the years and is now becoming a much stronger option for me. I'll still only trade fx pairs and indices with them. I've made strong profits on trading indices with them and now need to continue this on MT5.

Been following the FRA40 for a couple of years and trading selected individual stocks in France and Aus. EightCap doesn't offer stocks outside of Australia. Taking my time with them over the last 6 months and have been making consistent profits via MT5 with EightCap. New Aus Shares access is great allow me to trade a suite of shares. Have been chatting to EightCap about getting access to US stocks which i'm told will be available in the future. No complaints from me, successful trading and quality support.

Eightcap offers one of the most competitive spreads I have seen. For one of their accounts they have commission of $3.5 per standard lot (total $7 per round turn trade), with spreads from 0.0 pips on the EUR/USD. Also a great customer support with German.
