Overall, Rockfort Markets provides a large selection of features and tools without any additional costs. Additionally, the broker is exempt from the same leverage limitations that apply in Europe and North America because it is regulated as a derivatives issuer in New Zealand.
The ability to deposit and withdraw money in NZD is quite useful for New Zealand traders. But other investors all around the world might find it difficult to invest due to higher fees for withdrawing money from international bank accounts.
