At FxScouts, we help traders find the broker that suits their trading needs. In many cases, the best way to achieve this is to compare brokers side-by-side.

To compare Go Markets and Zero Markets, we used the same factors we use when reviewing brokers: The trust and regulation of the broker, the trading platform, the costs and trading conditions, and the level of education and market analysis available at the broker.

Does Go Markets or Zero Markets have a better trust and regulation rating?

Trust and regulation are some of the most important factors to consider when choosing a Forex broker. Trust in the Forex trading business is almost entirely founded upon regulation. We spend many hours evaluating the safety of each broker by delving into their fine print and confirming each one of their regulatory licences on the online registers. The more top-tier authorities a broker is regulated by, the higher its trust rating.

In our comparison, we found that Go Markets holds two Tier 1 and no Tier 2 licences, and Zero Markets holds one Tier 1 and no Tier 2 licences.

 

Is Go Markets financially regulated?

Yes Go Markets was founded in 2006 and is regulated by ASIC and CySEC.

 

Is Zero Markets financially regulated?

Yes Zero Markets was founded in 2017 and is regulated by ASIC, FSA-St-Vincent and FSC.

 

Based on these findings, Go Markets earned a higher trust rating than Zero Markets.

Does Go Markets or Zero Markets have lower costs?

Another important aspect we consider when comparing brokers is the cost of trading. When evaluating trading costs, we always consider the minimum deposit required to open an account and the ongoing trading costs, including the spreads and commissions. When calculating trading costs, we measure the cost to trade one lot of EUR/USD using the broker’s account with the lowest minimum deposit. The cost includes both the spread and any commission charged. 

Not all brokers publish their trading costs, so we often open accounts and trade on their platforms to verify the spreads and commissions. Based on our reviews, we found that Go Markets has overall lower trading costs than Zero Markets.

And what about Cryptocurrencies?

In this case, Zero Markets offers 11 cryptocurrencies while Go Markets offers 10 cryptocurrencies. So if you want to trade cryptocurrencies, we advise trading with Zero Markets.

Which broker offers better deposit and withdrawal processes?

Although brokers may have reasonable trading fees, many traders are caught out by the high non-trading fees charged by some brokers, including deposits and withdrawals. Traders want to be able to deposit and withdraw funds quickly and cheaply. Most brokers have multiple funding methods with zero fees for making deposits, but some brokers make it more expensive and take longer to process withdrawals. 

We rate brokers more highly that process withdrawals within 24 hours by multiple withdrawal methods and without charging processing fees. We found that neither Go Markets nor Zero Markets charges a withdrawal fee. Overall, Go Markets has better deposit and withdrawal processes than Zero Markets. 

Which broker offers better educational support?

We often find that brokers offer very little in the way of educational materials, forcing traders to use other third-party sites or self-educate elsewhere. Beginner traders need well-structured, well-presented materials in multiple formats to get a good start at trading. More experienced traders also benefit from webinars led by experts in the field and advanced trading strategy sections with new trading ideas. 

Go Markets has better educational support than Zero Markets. Both Go Markets and Zero Markets offer educational support for more experienced traders.

Which broker offers better market analysis materials?

To successfully predict the price movements of an instrument, traders will need access to frequent market research and analysis. We find that research and market analysis are always better when they are produced in-house and updated frequently. Third-party resources don’t show the same expertise in trading ideas, so we place a strong emphasis on frequent in-house updates. Some brokers also often offer interactive webinars where traders can learn from experts in the field. 

We found that Go Markets offers better research analysis than Zero Markets and that both Go Markets and Zero Markets offer frequent webinars.

Our overall Verdict on Zero Markets

Founded in 2017, Zero Markets is a growing CFD broker that offers a low-cost trading environment on a wide range of tradable assets on the MT4 and MT5 platforms. However, Zero Markets clients in India will be trading under its Saint Vincent and the Grenadines-based entity, which provides little regulatory oversight and does not offer automatic negative balance protection.

Zero Markets offers two live CFD accounts both with a minimum deposit requirement of only 100 AUD (+- 5500 INR), making them accessible to most traders. Spreads start at 1.00 pips (EUR/USD) on its Standard account, which is average compared to other brokers, and no commissions are charged for Forex trading. Spreads tighten to 0 pips (EUR/USD) on its Super Zero Account in exchange for a commission of only 5 USD per lot traded. Zero Markets also stands out for the number of financial assets on offer, including over 800 share CFDs, 45 Forex pairs, commodities, indices, and a small range of cryptocurrencies.

Some drawbacks for traders considering Zero Markets are that its educational and market analysis materials are sorely lacking, and it offers no trading tools to assist with technical and fundamental analysis.

Overall, Zero Markets will appeal to traders who value a low-cost trading environment and a broad range of tradable assets.
