Deltastock does not currently accept traders from the USA, Japan, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, North Korea, Sudan, Syria, Libya, Lebanon, and a host of other countries which is a shame because of their quality services.
At Deltastock, traders can benefit from a host of standard features. Most noteworthy is the user-friendly interface and easy website navigation.

There are only two trading accounts to choose from and they can both be opened with as little as $100.
Deltastock offers two different trading platforms.
The proprietary Delta Trading 6 platform was a year in the making and involved intense development and numerous additions to its beta version. The latest and final version of the platform was introduced recently and traders can now take advantage of the broker’s experience in capital markets.

I have been trading for a good few years now and with Deltastock since January 2006. While I realise that having a good broker does not contribute to a trader's success: having a bad broker certainly does not help matters. Also: I believe that credit must be given where credit is due and Deltastock certainly deserves credit (read on)!!!
Customer service is excellent (I've never waited longer than a few hours, IF that, for a reply from them). I can probably count the number of re-quotes that I've had in all these years on one hand. I've never not been able to access the platform at any time during normal trading hours (systems upgrades, although very few and far between, have always been performed over weekends when the markets are closed). There has been the odd occasion where a data error has been the cause of a price spike which has erroneously executed an order of mine but on each occasion (and there's probably only been two that I can think of) the position has been re-instated without me even having to make them AWARE of the problem. Fairer than that one could not ask for.
Deltastock offers 72 currency pairs for trading in addition to CFD's on commodities, individual stocks (global), stock index futures (global), Gold, Silver, and Oil (and probably a few instruments that I've forgotten to mention as well). Also: in addition to their proprietary trading platform called 'Delta Trading' (which I personally use) they offer MetaTrader 4 for trading currency pairs and Gold and Silver. In addition: Deltastock also has a Level 2 Module in their proprietary trading platform which shows currency market depth and allows the trader to choose the best price quotes from at least five other liquidity providers (FXCM, Deutsche Bank, Citibank, Interactive Brokers, and Dukascopy Bank) and offers a TRUE ECN/STP environment. Deltastock also offers trading with fixed or variable spreads in the same platform and variable spreads on the majors e.g. EUR/USD can be as low as 0.1 pips and this combined with instant order execution is ideal for scalpers (although I myself am not a scalper and trade long term only). Also: Deltastock not only accepts Bank Wire Transfers and Credit Cards but also MoneyBookers and a variety of Debit Cards. They have offices in many countries all of which are registered with the regulatory bodies in those countries (the FSA in the UK for example).
I know the above probably sounds like an advertisement for Deltastock and I'm not going to lie to you i.e. I am an IB for them BUT I gain nothing from posting this review and no matter whether I'm an IB for them or not it does not change the fact that they are an excellent broker and I am willing to help anybody that is interested with their proprietary trading platform and profitable trading systems that I have coded for the platform (at no charge by the way i.e. as with a lot of traders it's only a pleasure to help because I know how difficult it can be to make money in this business).
I'll tell you this: had I not found Deltastock when I did I would in all probability have given up on this business because of the bad experiences that I'd had with other brokers (in hindsight of course I didn't know that I was being 'ripped off' by these other brokers due to a lack of experience and knowledge and would just have assumed that it was impossible to make money in this business but thanks to my experiences with Deltastock as a trader I now know differently).
