European Broker with lots to offer. However, the minimum deposit is € 10,000.

LYNX

LYNX has minimal equity and ETF trading fees, an outstanding mobile trading platform, and offers a broad variety of markets and products. On the other hand, deposit and withdrawal options are limited to bank transfers. There is also a costly minimum deposit of € 10,000 and the desktop platform is too complicated for most users. Feel free to try LYNX if you are a European client seeking low equity and ETF trading costs and a good mobile trading platform.

Has one of the best trading platforms on the European market, but falls short on research tools and education.

DEGIRO

3.5
DEGIRO is a good choice if you want a user-friendly platform and don’t want to spend too much on fees. Transaction costs are normally very low. DEGIRO also has one of the best trading platforms for Europeans. In addition, the account opening process is fast-paced. On the other hand, education and research tools are limited. We should also mention that there is no forex trading, and most clients can only deposit and withdraw via bank transfer. All in all, DEGIRO is a great online broker. There is no minimum deposit and no inactivity fee.

eToro is an innovative broker with many features. On the flipside, fees for deposits and withdrawals are high.

eToro

3.5
eToro has zero-commission stock trading. The account opening is fast and consistent. It has a lot of innovative features, like social trading and copying other (successful) traders. It has some setbacks, though. Non-trading fees are high and eToro only allows USD accounts, which means that conversion costs on deposits and withdrawals can be costly in some cases. Live chat is difficult to reach and their educational materials have room for improvement. So is eToro good? Overall, we would recommend eToro for its social trading feature and zero-commission stock trading.

Global CFD and forex broker that lacks a browser-based platform.

Trading 212

3
Trading 212 is an online brokerage service for investors both new and experienced, with an excellently designed mobile app, commission-free trading, a simple account structure, and a whole host of additional educational features. Trading 212 offers good levels of customer support and easy withdrawal of funds. All of this makes it a good option for would-be investors to explore. On the flip side, some potential investors may prefer a more browser-based broker, the use of the popular MetaTrader 4 platform, or additional features like algorithmic/automated trading or the option of managed accounts.

Provides a great service. However, the fees for most products are high, and the minimum deposit is €10.000.

Saxo Bank

3
Saxo Bank is a great broker, providing a decent and comprehensive service. It provides an easy-to-use and well-structured trading platform. Backed by outstanding research. The product portfolio covers all asset types as multiple international markets. It has a few setbacks though. The charges for bonds, options, and futures are quite high. There is also a costly minimum deposit for some countries. Lastly, there is no live chat or 24/7 customer service.

Suitable for the occasional short-term trader. On the flipside, customer service is mediocre.

Revolut

3
With all three types of accounts, you can trade US stocks for free (though monthly limits may apply). Account opening is easy, fully online, and fast. You can use an amazing and user-friendly mobile trading platform. Revolut has some setbacks though. The product portfolio covers only US stocks and some cryptocurrencies. There are only a few research tools, while it offers no educational material at all. When it comes to customer service, there is room for improvement. If you want to trade US stocks for free and are seeking a user-friendly mobile platform, Revolut is a wise choice.

flatex is great for long term investments. However, forex fees and margin rates are high.

Flatex

3
flatex is great for long-term investments. However, forex fees and margin rates are high. Investing in stocks, funds, and ETFs is cheaper flatex than with its German competitors. It also has additional savings and mutual fund plans for long-term investors. Because it is available on the stock exchange, Flatex's financial data is transparent. It also provides superior quality educational materials to help you understand trading with the broker's services. On the downside, forex fees and margin rates are high. Opening an account for non-German citizens is complex and you can only use bank transfers for deposits and withdrawals. We also missed the ability to switch to English during account opening and on the web and mobile trading platforms. Despite this, customer service was usually able to help us in English. Since there is no required minimum deposit or inactivity fee, you can try flatex.

2.5
BUX Zero is a mobile-only, commission-free stock and ETF trading app with 100k+ users. Currently, it is only available for investors from the Netherlands, France, Germany, Belgium, and Austria.

Only a good choice for the existing clients of Rabobank. There fees are higher than the average online broker.

Rabobank

1.5
Investing with Rabobank can be a good choice for people who already have a bank account with them. This way they can have their current and investment accounts with the same financial service provider. To create an account with them with the sole purpose of trading is not a wise choice. Their costs are higher than the average online broker, with less analytical tools, market access but with extra service fees. Not only do they charge a €5 quarterly cost, but they also charge 0.06% of the value of your portfolio.
