IC Trading is a multi-featured CFD provider, almost identical to IC Markets. They offer fast and competitive trading of more than 2,000 financial instruments. IC Trading is based in Mauritius and is regulated by the local Financial Services Commission of Mauritius (FSC). The broker offers client bank account segregation via Westpac and National Australia Bank (NAB).

IC Trading features two main account types, the Standard and the Raw Spread. The trading spreads on the RAW account are very tight, starting as low as 0.0 pip on EURUSD plus $7 / full traded lot. The spread on the Standard Account starts as low as 1.1 pip, without charging any trading commissions. There is also a cTrader account. The minimum amount required to open a Standard, RAW, or cTrader account is just $200. The funding methods include cards, bank wire, and a few internet wallets such as Neteller and PayPal.

Concerning their asset index, IC Trading offers 60+ Forex pairs plus CFDs in precious metals, energies, commodities, indices, shares, cryptocurrencies, and bonds. Note that IC Trading offers also Futures Trading, which means you can open specific positions in the market without having to pay overnight rates (SWAPS).
