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 Dukascopy vs FxPro.

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. Dukascopy's score is 4.50 stars versus FxPro's 4.00 stars.

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. Both Dukascopy and FxPro are regulated in a major hub. Dukascopy nor FxPro are publicly traded companies. How many currency pairs are available to trade? FxPro offers its clients access to 70 different currency pairs while Dukascopy has 64 available pairs, a difference of 6.

To round out our comparison, let's look at the popular tools and features forex traders prefer. For platforms, some FX traders prefer MetaTrader. Dukascopy alongside FxPro 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. Both Dukascopy and FxPro provide clients with access to 31 total charting tools. Both brokers offer clients access to the same number of indicators (eg, moving averages), 51.
