They offer a range of products including FX majors, Precious Metals, Oil and Soft commodities. LCG was founded in 1996 and is located in London.

There are two different trading accounts at LCG and this requires no minimum deposit for either of them. The Spread betting account offers over 4,000 markets across FX, indices, shares, commodities with tight spreads on a wide range of global markets.

The CFD account allows traders to trade CFDs on over 4,000 different markets with tight spreads on EUR/USD, UK100, Brent Crude and more.

Both accounts can be used as demo accounts for a period of 30 days.

LCG does not accept U.S. clients but corporate, joint or foreign currency accounts can be set up.

Deposits/Withdrawals

All major debit and credit cards except American Express can be used for depositing funds into a LCG account. Funds can also be transferred securely online or by telephone using a debit or credit card as well as by bank transfers. Surprisingly, checks are also accepted which is somewhat unusual in the brokerage industry.

Withdrawals are made by phone or email and funds are deposited back to a credit card or bank account.

Customer Support

Customer support is available at LCG through telephone and email. There is no Chat.

They are open for trading from Sunday 24:00 until Friday 22:00, UK time.

Conclusion

LCG is a straightforward CFD service provider. The website is clearly presented and user-friendly. I was pleased to see that a demo account is offered but the site does lack educational material such as an economic calendar, market analysis and other useful tools. Also missing was Chat support which is often needed when setting up a trading account.
