Terms and conditions apply in this campaign.
The broker offers an IB system (Introducing Broker). In fact, on the website, there is access for them where they can access their private area using a username and password. The IB is a partner that attracts clients for the broker in exchange for a commission for their operations. Obviously, the particular conditions have to be dealt with by the broker directly.
EDUCATIONAL & TRADING TOOLS
In this section, the broker provides a news area that is updated and an economic calendar with all the important events of the day and that every trader should know. It also has an area, available under subscription (customers only), with a Forex Daily, Forex Weekly, World Markets Weekly, and Trading Ideas (Market Research). It also has the last section called the “The Archive of Research Notes from just2trade analytics” (where we have not been able to access it since it asks for a username and password), so we understand that it is a service exclusively for customers.
To contact the customer service we have several ways. We have a phone, an email and, a very interesting, online chat and a service that with a single button you access a live call via the web. We found this last service interesting and novel since almost no broker has it.

Just2trade offers a free demo account with 50,000 virtual USD for risk-free trial trading, which is excellent. It is very common for traders to open a Demo account before depositing money into a real account. It is also important to know that the Demo account retains the same live prices and market conditions, simulating the exposure in a real account.
Just2Trade does not report any restrictions on some citizens or jurisdictions who cannot open an account.

Advantages: MT4. High leverage. Adjusted spreads without commission. Multiple payment and withdrawal options. Initial deposit relatively low. Multiple ways of contact with customer service.
Disadvantages: There is no information about withdrawals, their processing, or possible associated costs.
