Easy-Forex™ was founded by a group of bankers, forex and Internet experts to offer forex traders direct access to the global currency markets. Unlike many other platforms, the company offers traders the ability to trade immediately without downloading software or completing forms. In fact, users do not even need to open a bank account and deposit money in advance. But before opening an account with Easy-Forex – no matter how easy it is – forex traders should familiarize themselves with the account types, minimum requirements, commission structures, available platforms and other relevant materials. Forex traders should also be aware that Easy-Forex is based in Cyprus and closed down its U.S. operations in August 2010.
