FXOpen offers two types of trading accounts, ECN and STP. Both 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.
Our most popular account option: FXOpen ECN account is a multi-asset account, allowing you to trade a wide range of FX, global indices, stocks, commodities, and cryptocurrency CFDs**, all from one single account.
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.
