Trading Accounts

FXOpen AU offers three types of trading accounts, ECN, STP and Crypto. All three trading accounts use market execution so you can trade with the security of knowing that there is no dealing desk, no requotes and your trade will always be executed at the best available price.

ECN Trading Accounts: On Electronic Communication Network (ECN) accounts you trade on the raw price from the banks and liquidity providers and pay a small commission. This is the most cost-effective form of FX trading and is ideal for executing large volume trades.

STP Trading Accounts: On Straight Through Processing (STP) accounts there is no separate commission to pay as it is already included in the spread. This account is ideal for novice traders looking to keep pricing simple.

Crypto Trading Accounts: Speculate on the price of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin using a CFD, without the additional risk of owning them directly.
