MEXEM review summary

Mexem is an European-based global stockbroker for traders and investors. MEXEM has low stock and ETF commission fees. Thanks to its link to Interactive Brokers, MEXEM covers a vast range of markets and products, and offers a multitude of great research tools on its sophisticated trading platforms. Partly because of that, though, we recommend this broker mainly for advanced traders, as the desktop trading platform isn’t the easiest to use. Among other drawbacks, forex and margin rates are high. BrokerChooser gave MEXEM a 4.5/5 rating based on analyzing 500+ criteria and testing via opening a live account.
