On the homepage of this website, there are a few testimonials from happy clients but the problem with that is they are all too favorable towards them and there really is no way to verify or trace thee identity of the users which means we do not trust them.
On many popular forums like Trustpilot.com, people have complained about them. Here what the actual users of their service are saying about them:
I was just about to make an investment but fortunately before making a payment I looked at the reviews for 365markets. However, whilst doing this I received a phone call from “someone” (first language not English) from 365markets stating they were my personal advisor. This person then began to ask me some unrelated personal questions and kept asking me to make a deposit of $250. I told him that I had reconsidered what I was doing and was not going to proceed. However, since yesterday I have now had 6 phone calls from different (foreign) people desperate for me to pay the $250. Each time I told the person I was not going to proceed and to not call me, I still had numerous calls. This whole experience has left me feeling as though this is a SCAM. So, my advice would be DO NOT invest anything with 365markets.

365Markets Review Conclusion
365Markets offers huge number of trading assets and provides leverage of 1:200 which should be enough for most of the traders. They do miss out on providing MT4 program which more than 80% retail traders use. On the flip side this brokers reputation is heavily damaged on the internet and the amount of complaints against them are too many.
After considering all the facts the disadvantages over-weigh the benefits. Our best advice for our readers is to trade using fully regulated and licensed brokers only. Even their spreads are higher then most brokers, so why should you stick with them while you have so many legit choices available.
