Vanguard Review 2021

Vanguard is a renowned US investment broker offering low-cost stock and ETF trading, alongside robo advisors and top-tier regulation

Vanguard is broker that offers traders Stocks. Surprisingly, Vanguard does not support either of the enormously popular MetaTrader platforms (4 and 5).

In terms of features offered to traders, Vanguard has Auto Trading but is missing Demo Accounts, Islamic Accounts, Social Trading and Signals.

Careful traders will be pleased to know that Vanguard is licensed to provide trading services by multiple regulatory bodies, 2 in fact. Note, however, that the FCA here in the UK is not among them. Prudent traders might want the extra safety of going with an FCA-regulated broker.
