Mex Exchange is not the worst broker in the world. There are plenty of interesting platform options and tools available to their customers. On the downside they don’t have as many assets available to trade as you would expect and not having a live support option is an oversight in my opinion. However, when I did contact them via email, they responded promptly and always gave thorough answers to my questions. I’d be tempted to give them a chance if I was looking for a new broker.
