Minimum Deposit and Pricing

You can open a LiteFinance ECN or Classic trading account with as little a minimum deposit as $50. Both types of accounts offer an impressive leverage ratio of up to 1,000:1. 

The broker’s ECN account also offers floating dealing spreads starting at 0 pips, while floating dealing spreads shown to traders using the broker’s Classic account start at 1.8 pips. No commissions outside of the dealing spread are charged in the Classic account, but the ECN account has a commission charged on top of the dealing spread depending on the asset involved. 

The table below shows how the two trading account types compare.

The broker supports the MT4 and MT5 trading platforms, which most experienced forex and CFD traders will appreciate and already be familiar with. The 24-hour access to the broker via the live chat website button during the trading week is also a big plus, as well as the number of regional offices around the world and multilingual access to customer service. 

The general utility and quality of the broker’s supported trading platforms, its well-rounded and multilingual customer service and its user-friendly website deserve the best user experience rating available.   

LiteFinance vs. Competitors

LiteFinance compares favorably to other similar online brokers. The chart below shows how LiteFinance compares to other brokers.

Overall Rating

Although it operates from an offshore base jurisdiction, LiteFinance appears to be a quality broker with a large client base worldwide. The advantages of using LiteFinance as a broker include access to very high leverage, support of MT4 and MT5 trading platforms, a wide range of tradable assets, access to Claws&Horns’ expert market analytics, social trading and responsive multi-lingual customer service. 

In addition to offering an extensive set of educational tools and access to a demo account, LiteFinance holds promotional contests for traders with cash and product rewards that could definitely make it worth your while to participate. The firm currently has a contest for demo account traders and a regional contest in the Philippines.  

While commissions may seem somewhat high for the broker’s ECN account, the account’s tight dealing spreads and the fact that you will not get requotes on market orders somewhat make up for the pricey commissions. 

The slightly lower-than-perfect overall rating for LifeFinance is due to the fact that while you can trade multiple asset types, including forex, indices and commodities, investing directly in stocks cannot be done via LiteFinance. So, even though you can trade stock indices or CFDs on stock shares, LiteFinance does not provide its clients with direct access to traditional equities trading.
