Juno Markets is a Forex and CFD broker providing traders throughout Asia with access to currencies, stocks, indices and CFD’s in spot gold and silver. Juno Markets is headquartered in Wellington, New Zealand and in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
With its emphasis on Asia, all of their technology including websites, trading servers, and liquidity providers are locally hosted in Asia. I was surprised to see they had no regulation.
Juno offers two different trading accounts-the Juno and the Juno Intro accounts. Not too much information was provided about these accounts. Since it was not mentioned, I assumed when doing this review that there is no minimum deposit requirement for either of the accounts.
Standard leverage for all Forex crosses is 200:1 in the Juno and 400:1for the Juno Intro Account with a maximum account size of $2,000.
It was nice to see that a free demo account is available with no risks or obligations. Indeed, the use of $50,000 in virtual funds is quite generous.
Juno Markets provides traders with access to over 30 FX crosses and spot metals tradable on the market-leading MT4 platform. All the Forex instruments are offered through their no-dealing desk execution mode while working with the world’s top tier liquidity providers so as to ensure deep and consistent liquidity for their clients. No requotes or dealer interventions are done. They offer generous leverage of up to 200:1 for their Juno Account and 400:1 for their Juno Intro accounts.

Juno Markets is a relative newcomer to the Forex scene. As such, it has established itself as one of Asia’s leading Forex brokers. It offers a wide choice of trading products and several trading accounts to choose from. It is also missing some important features.
One of the nicest features about Juno Markets is its graphic-laden website. Each page is accompanied by a photograph that is relevant to the information presented and is straight to the point. The use of black and white rather than colors offers the website a retro look that reminds us of how trading used to be in the past, before the introduction use of upscale modern technology. Navigating the website is quick and setting up an account is easy.
