101investing is a very modern broker. You notice this directly on the website, because the website is not only easy to navigate, but also very appealing. The infrastructure is also not outdated and ideal for traders who want fast order execution. On average, execution is between 0.05 and 0.08 seconds, which is very speedy. The biggest plus point of ETFinance in our eyes is the very large number of cryptocurrencies. With over 50 different pairs, 101 clearly stands out from the competition. The low minimum deposit of €100 is complemented by several payment options, and deposits via credit card are processed immediately.
We were negatively struck by the diffuse account structure at 101investing. The division into different account types is widespread, but not user-friendly. There are higher fees for smaller accounts in the silver account. The minimum stoploss distance is undoubtedly a thorn in the side of M1 traders. The support and service offering could be improved with a real German customer support with an office in Germany. The account level classification is apparently done by telephone agreement with the personal account manager.
101investing offers various asset classes and over 400 different trading instruments.
These include, among others.
101Investing offers its clients a mixed account structure. In addition to the demo account, the real money account has different trading conditions depending on the amount of the deposit or equity. 101Investing divides the accounts here into Silver, Gold, Platinum and Pro(Exclusive), but does not give a more precise classification of when you will be upgraded to the account. If you are still unsure, you should test your trading strategies at 101Investing on a free demo account.
101Investing’s fees are mixed. The spreads at the Account Silver are usually higher than at other brokers. However, the higher levels of the account have a better spread. Swap fees are also improved by 25% – 50% for the gold and platinum account levels.
Currently, there are about 400 trading instruments available, including the most popular stocks. 101Investing is ideal for crypto traders. 101 offers over 50 cryptocurrency pairs and even exotic cryptos such as Cardano, Verge or Babel. Crypto traders who want to use a regulated broker should take a closer look at 101Investing. The trading software is still upgradeable, but consists of the multi-talented Metatrader 4 and its mobile / web version.
101Investing has fast order execution via Metatrader 4 and trading does not run on a slow web platform like eToro. (We make the comparison here because eToro also has a larger crypto offering). Encryption and connectivity is provided via SAS 70 certified data centres. Order execution speed averages between 0.08 and 0.05 seconds.
Learning materials and webinars are available at 101Investing, even if they can officially only be used by Gold Status users, the customer advisors offer access on request. The minimum deposit of €100 is very low, below average.
The leverage for professional traders is optionally up to 1:500.

In terms of trading software, 101investing has focused on MetaTrader4 (MT4) and offers it as a web, mobile and desktop version.

For trading novices, 101investing offers detailed explanatory videos on the installation and use of MetaTrader. There is a variant for the mobile as well as desktop version. Of course, all order types and the user interface are also explained.
101Investing has several accounts for Forex and CFD traders to choose from. However, these are individually graded depending on the deposit/credit balance. The account levels are Silver, Gold, Platinum and Pro (Pro means professional regulation without leverage restriction).
The classification is made individually by the account manager and the trading conditions improve with a higher account level. The spreads are lower and the holding costs are reduced by 25% to 50%.

Our 101Investing review can be summarized as mixed. For larger accounts, the trading conditions are good, for smaller ones somewhat below average. All in all, 101investing is not an all-round broker. The “too” small number of shares, as well as the lack of many CFD futures, scares off some traders. On the other hand, crypto traders feel extremely comfortable at 101investing, as there is a large selection with over 50 cryptocurrencies. “Professional” traders can choose up to 1:500 leverage at 101investing.
By regulation, every new client must go through some basic compliance checks to ensure that you understand the risks of trading and are admitted to trading. When you open an account, you will probably be asked for the following items, so it is good to have them handy: A scanned colour copy of your passport or national ID A utility bill or bank statement from the last six months with your address You will also need to answer a few basic compliance questions to confirm how much trading experience you have. It is therefore best to take at least 10 minutes to complete the account opening process. Although you can explore the demo account immediately, it is important to note that you cannot make any real trading transactions until you have passed compliance, which can take up to several days depending on your situation.
