When rating the brokers to place into our Best for Beginners list we put greater weight on certain traits. We have also taken into account the feedback from users, and the opinions of our own experts here at ForexRating.com. In general the primary criteria used are an easy to understand user interface and a good selection of educational material. We’ve found these two criteria are most important for the new trader in terms of getting a good start. Of course we do also include the other parameters in our calculation. High reliability, low fees, good trading conditions and all the other parameters used in calculating the broker rating are still tabulated and calculated on a real-time basis in our Best for Beginners list.
