    Great platform, easy to use and great service.

  • Cracraft says:

    High costs do not always deliver high returns. Eightcap lowers costs, opens access to waaaaay more global markets, offers AMAZING margin rates, and keeps it simple for a sophisticated trader.

    You can submit basic orders for traders, or really advanced orders including 60+ order types.

  • Jason says:

    Hi guys, good day! Need your opinion on something horrifying that just happened to me on Eightcap . I have escalated and will not let this matter go unheard. Despite persistent login issues with Eightcap and many other negativity that surrounded the platform within the last couple of months, ive always thought Eightcap is not too bad until recently.

  • Mac Rostick says:

    just opened an account and tried to add bank details, straight away without warning it took and deposited £1000 out of my bank account. It wasn’t clear and gave me no confirmation to do so. Can this deposit be canceled without having to pay fees??? Would be grateful to get some response. many thanks

  • Seamus says:

    Brilliant interface and easy to use. However, app has kicked me out or have been unable to log in, at times. It always seems to happen at moments of high trading and I have missed out on some high profit investments.

  • Leonard says:

    Spreads on crypto are extortion.

  • Merdzan Mike says:

    When opening trades I get a message asking me if I am sure I want to close my account!!! Am I making too much money Eightcap?

  • Ardian Lubeq says:

    Why people can’t withdraw their money from you?
