Broker Overview Rating: 9/10

In comparison to other brokers, I’m giving Start Options a lower rating of 9/10 because of the lack of instrument types and the fact that they only have hourly expiry options. I used to trade with them in my newbie days and those were a pain, I’m not sure if they’ve changed their platform/business model. But, be sure to check out my broker review on them because they used to spread a lot back in the day.

NOTE: This is simply an overview rating on their offerings, this is NOT equivalent to a broker review in the other section!
