Which FOREX.com Trading Account is Best for You?

Standard Account

The Standard Account has access to all 82 available currency pairs along with gold and silver through any of our trading platforms on web and mobile.

When creating a demo or a MetaTrader 4 account, you’ll be using our Standard Account.

Both our Standard Account and Commission Account are REST API compatible. Deposit as little as $100, though we recommend starting with at least $2,500 to allow you more flexibility and better risk management when trading your account.

Commission Account

The Commission Account provides access to the same markets as our Standard Account but with tighter spreads, as low as 0.2 on EUR/USD. You’ll then pay a low $5 commission per 100k on your Commission Account.

You can also get access to our Active Trader program, available for both Standard and Commission trading accounts that meet requirements, providing up to 15% cash rebates on trades in addition to other benefits.
