Our ForexBrokers.com team spent several months and hundreds of hours assessing 28 different forex broker accounts for trading FX. In total, over 2,200 data points were collected. For this review, we will compare Binance vs Coinbase.

To start this comparison, first, we will take a look at the fees charged for trading forex. It's important to note this is no easy task. Not every broker shares their average spreads, spreads can be fixed or variable (floating), execution policies differ, and brokers can act as market makers (dealers) or act as agents for execution. To simplify things, we analyzed everything for you and provide a single star rating for cost. Binance is a better option with a 4.00 star rating over Coinbase's 2.50 star rating.

Cost aside, we can now turn our focus to regulation alongside currency availability. For regulation, it's very important to select a broker you can trust with your money. Neither are regulated in a major hub. Neither are publicly traded companies. How many currency pairs are available to trade? Both Binance and Coinbase provide traders with access to total currency pairs.

To round out our comparison, let's look at the popular tools and features forex traders prefer. For platforms, some FX traders prefer MetaTrader. Neither Binance and Coinbase offer Meta Trader. Within the trading platform, charting should be robust, so we counted the number of drawing tools and total technical indicators made available. Binance and Coinbase offer the same number of charting tools, . Both brokers offer clients access to the same number of indicators (eg, moving averages), .
