IQ Option vs Trade360 Comparison

Both of these brokers offer user friendly web traders and apps. Trade360 has a crowd trading news feed on its ParagonEx web trader. This offers news about markets and market events, with information about the sentiments and reactions of other traders (the 'crowd') to this news. Thus the aim of this is to help inform the trader as they make their own trading decisions, by tracking the activities of other traders as a group (so it is not social trading, where individual traders can populate a feed).

Trade360 has a considerably higher minimum deposit than IQ Option ($500 vs $10). IQ Option allows traders to trade with a minimum order size of $1. This means that a trader can trade on a live account with a smaller account size (hence the small minimum deposit). For the same minimum deposit as required to trade on ParagonEx, Trade360 lets the trader use MT5 (MetaTrader 5), and allows them to use EAs (Expert Advisors). Expert Advisors allow the trader automate their trading strategies, letting EAs trade on their behalf.
