Admirals (Admiral Markets) has low trading fees, especially when it comes to forex. On the negative side, it charges an inactivity fee.

Account opening

The account opening and verification process is fast and fully digital. The minimum deposit is $100, which is definitely not excessive.

Deposit and withdrawal

Admirals charges no deposit or withdrawal fees. You can use cards, bank transfer or e-wallets for deposit and withdrawal, but some e-wallet options aren’t available for all clients.

Web trading platform

Admirals uses the MetaTrader web trading platform. It is highly customizable and has a clear fee report, but its design is outdated and it lacks a two-step login and price alerts.

Mobile trading platform

The mobile trading app is well designed and user-friendly, with a good search function and safe login. However, price alerts and some account types are not supported.

Desktop trading platform

In design and functionality, the MetaTrader 4 desktop platform offered by Admirals is almost the same as the web platform. One major difference is that you can set price alerts.

Markets and products

For most users, Admirals (Admiral Markets) mainly provides forex, CFD and cryptos. For those using the Invest.MT5 account type, it offers real stocks and ETFs as well.


You can use the research tools of the MT platform, which are not the greatest. As a plus, though, Admirals offers great alternative web tools like a forex calendar and market news.

Customer service

Admirals customer service is available via several channels and is generally good quality. It provides helpful answers, although response times could be improved.


Admirals (Admiral Markets) provides quality educational texts, webinars and videos, while a demo account is also available.


Admirals is regulated by several financial authorities, including the FCA, the ASIC and CySEC. It also provides negative balance protection. However, it doesn’t hold a banking license.
