Is my deposit safe and secure?

Yes. We treat your funds safety very seriously, and take no shortcuts. Once your deposit has been registered, the funds go directly to your account. All the information is encrypted, and as long as you don't share your password with anybody (and use an adequate password), you remain the only person with access to your account.
If you want to increase the security of your account, you can enable the optional two-factor authentication method.

How long does it take for my funds to appear in my account?

This depends on your depositing method. Depositing funds through a bank wire transfer takes between 5 and 7 working days. Using your credit or debit card, or an e-wallet platform (such as Neteller, PayPal, or Skrill) is virtually instantaneous.

Is there a minimum deposit amount?

Keep in mind that in order to receive access to the full services Global Markets has to offer, you need to have a minimum of 250 USD / 220 EUR / 190 GBP in your trading account.

Are there any hidden fees?

Global Markets does not impose any hidden fees on depositing to your account. The only fees applied are to trading activities on the platform.

However, keep in mind this might be different on the other end of the transfer. Your bank or e-wallet might charge you fees, especially relating to currency exchange rates and online transfers. Make sure you check with your provider of services.
