The account opening process at FBS is user-friendly and fully digital. The process is very fast, our account was approved within a day.

Deposit and withdrawal

FBS’ depositing and withdrawal services are great. Many options are available for moving your money in and out and they are free of charge. However, we would have loved to see more account currencies.

FBS uses the MetaTrader web trading platform. The interface is highly customizable with a good search function and clear fee reports, but it lacks a two-step login and price alerts.

Mobile trading platform

FBS Trader is a well-designed and user-friendly mobile trading platform, equipped with a good search function and safe login. Nevertheless, price alerts and biometric authentication are not supported.
