Online forex trading has grown in popularity with personal investors over the last few years. The growth has led to a big increase in the number of brokers available to traders, but choosing one doesn't always come down to simply cost.
Like IG, Saxo is a broker that has been around since the 1970s with a trusted and recognizable brand. It offers three accounts, each one with a minimum account balance: Classic $2,000, Platinum $200,000 and VIP $1,000,000.
