Our verdict

Access low fees and trade from a range of CFD products, all with a broker that puts customer service first.

Fusion Markets is a low-cost trading account that says it wants to deliver on low pricing, customer support and technology.

When I reviewed the broker, I found it ticked all of these boxes. Its fees are among the lower end, while its trading platform is relatively easy to navigate. Where I found the broker really differentiates itself from the others is its strong customer service focus.

On the downside, the broker has pretty limited education resources, relying on mostly news from other sources to inform its members. It also does not provide investor protections to its members.

Pros

  • Great customer service
  • Low trading fees
  • No inactive fees
  • Simple-to-use trading platform
  • Cheap trading

Cons

  • CFDs are risky trading products
  • Limited educational resources
  • Investor protections lacking

Account types and fees

Fusion Markets offers 2 types of trading accounts, although what you can trade is the same for both.

Instead, it will alter how you pay fees.

Zero account

This account is probably for the more experienced traders, with fees changing depending on what you trade.

The company highlights that spreads start from 0 pip, with a $4.50 commission, making it one of the more competitive offers on the market.

Classic account

If you're new to trading and want your fees to be straightforward the Classic account could work for you.

It avoids the need for calculating commissions. Instead, it will charge spreads starting from 0.8 pips with the commission fee included in the spread.

Blog resources

When it comes to providing basic information for traders, Fusion Markets can help get you started.

The company has a number of beginner guides under its blog tab which can help you learn how to trade.

In a handy shortcut for traders Fusion Markets puts news feeds into its platform.

All you have to do is choose where you want to get information from.
