“Why invest in gold? You put it in your safe. It sits there and does nothing. If you buy an ounce of gold today and you hold it at hundred years, you can go to it every day and fondle it and a hundred years from now, you’ll have one ounce of gold and it won’t have done anything for you in between. You buy 100 acres of farm land and it will produce for you every year. You could buy the Dow Jones Industrial Average for 66 at the start of 1900. At the end of the century, it was 11,400, and you would also have been given dividends for a hundred years. So a decent productive asset will kill an unproductive asset.”

Though bitcoin, the first-ever cryptocurrency, appeared more than 10 years ago, the legal status of digital currencies has not been defined yet. However, virtual money is gaining in popularity, so both the global community and separate countries should settle down this issue. It is premature to discuss the legal status common for all countries, but a number of states have already started to prepare the legal basis to regulate the use of cryptocurrencies. Countries split into two main camps. Some states intend to ban or limit the use of virtual money. These countries are Bangladesh, Bolivia, China, and Ecuador, as well as Iceland, Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Russia, Thailand, Vietnam, and others. There are also countries that draw up a legal framework for introducing cryptocurrencies into their economies. These countries are Australia, Belgium, Canada, Cyprus, and Denmark, as well as France, Germany, Hong Kong, and Israel. Italy, Japan, New Zealand, and Norway, as well as Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, Turkey, England, the United States, and some other countries also stand for accepting cryptocurrencies.
Two members of the Silk Road Task Force—a multi-agency federal task force that carried out the U.S. investigation of Silk Road—seized bitcoins for their own use in the course of the investigation.[68] DEA agent Carl Mark Force IV, who attempted to extort Silk Road founder Ross Ulbricht ("Dread Pirate Roberts"), pleaded guilty to money laundering, obstruction of justice, and extortion under color of official right, and was sentenced to 6.5 years in federal prison.[68] U.S. Secret Service agent Shaun Bridges pleaded guilty to crimes relating to his diversion of $800,000 worth of bitcoins to his personal account during the investigation, and also separately pleaded guilty to money laundering in connection with another cryptocurrency theft; he was sentenced to nearly eight years in federal prison.[69]
The decision to go beyond free trading platforms and pay extra for software should be based on the product functionality best fitting your trading needs. You can often test-drive for nothing: Many market software companies offer no-cost trial periods, sometimes for as long as five weeks. Novice traders who are entering the trading world can select software applications that have a good reputation with required basic functionality at a nominal cost — perhaps a monthly subscription instead of outright purchase — while experienced traders can explore individual products selectively to meet their more specific criteria.
The MA lines will be a support zone during uptrends, and there will be resistance zones during downtrends.

Because of the difficulty associated with quantifying damages, in addition to any other damages to which E2T may be entitled, if actual damages cannot be reasonably calculated then you agree to pay E2T liquidated damages of $250 for each violation of this Section 2 or the maximum liquidated damages permitted under law, whichever is greater; otherwise you agree to pay E2T’ actual damages, to the extent such actual damages can be reasonably calculated.
When the ratio is rising, it means gold is outperforming silver, and when the line is falling, the first term is doing worse, i.e., silver is doing better. In other words, when the ratio is high, the general consensus is that silver is favored. Conversely, a low ratio tends to favor gold and may be a signal it’s a good time to buy the yellow metal. Despite the gold-to-silver ratio fluctuating so wildly, another way of using it is to switch holdings between silver and gold when the ratio swings to historically determined "extremes."
How much each pip is worth is called the "pip value." For any pair where the USD is listed second in the currency pair, the above-mentioned pip values apply. If the USD is listed first, the pip value may be slightly different. To find the pip value of the USD/CHF for example, divide the normal pip value (mentioned above) by the current USD/CHF exchange rate. For example, a micro lot is worth $0.10/0.9435 = $0.1060, where 0.9435 is the current price of the pair and subject to change. For JPY pairs (USD/JPY), go through this same process, but then multiply by 100. For a more detailed explanation, see Calculating Pip Value for Different Forex Pairs and Account Currencies.
Since automated trading systems vary in terms of speed, performance, programmability and complexity, what is good for one trader might not be good for another. Some Forex traders will want a program that generates reports, or imposes stops, trailing stops and other market orders. Other traders, such as those who are less experienced, may want a simpler program with a set-and-forget feature.
Any nation’s central bank, adjusts the rates of interest from time to time in order to contain or curb the inflationary trends. This, in turn, has a definitive effect on the currency market and traders assume trading positions accordingly. The central bank of a country does not act as it is a solid body. The interest rate is increased or decreased based on the vote cast by the members of the monetary policy committee. The number of members monetary committee varies from one bank to another. If the interest rate is cut, there will be more money in circulation. This makes it cheaper. If the interest rate is hiked, its value increases.

The global economic crisis touched almost all fields of human activities. Forex currency market was no exception. Though, Forex participants (central banks, commercial banks, investment banks, brokers and dealers, pension funds, insurance companies and transnational companies) were in a difficult position, the Forex market continues to function successfully, it is a stable and profitable as never before.


The next criterion is a currency pair as for each time limited strategy there is a particular currency pair. For working out an own strategy a trader should find a particular consistent pattern, then learn it thoroughly, try to analyze it with the reference to historical data (previous exchange rates) and after that test it. In any case before putting in practice any strategy a trader should not be in a hurry and invest all his money in one strategy. Practically every broker offers to open a demo account gratis which can be used by a trader to test a strategy. When the results of testing are favorable, a trader can start employing the strategy on the real forex account.

Now, imagine that all 20 stocks are moving every day, and at the end of each month some will be worth 5.5% or 6%, and others will be worth 4% of the portfolio. A program trading algorithm can look at the portfolio equity and quickly execute all the trades at once, buying the stocks that are under-allocated and selling the ones that are overallocated to rebalance the portfolio in seconds. Manually doing this would be much harder and more time-consuming.


Flag structures are counter directional trend lines that form against an existing trending structure. The event we’re looking for is a breakout candle. Once a breakout candle signals trend continuation by closing on the other side of the flag – that’s our cue to pull the trigger on a trade in the dominant trend direction. Flag trades surprisingly work well on lower time frames, as well as higher swing trading time frames.

How much leverage does the firm offer? Too much of a good thing? In the case of leverage, yes. Over the past several years, the maximum leverage available to retail traders has been reduced by regulators. For example, in the United States, the maximum available leverage is 50:1. In some markets outside the United States, such as the United Kingdom and Australia, 200:1 leverage is available. Generally speaking, firms offering excessively high leverage (higher than 200:1) are not looking out for the best interest of their customers and, more often than not, are not registered with a major regulatory body.
Just like stocks, you can trade currency based on what you think its value is (or where it's headed). But the big difference with forex is that you can trade up or down just as easily. If you think a currency will increase in value, you can buy it. If you think it will decrease, you can sell it. With a market this large, finding a buyer when you're selling and a seller when you're buying is much easier than in in other markets. Maybe you hear on the news that China is devaluing its currency to draw more foreign business into its country. If you think that trend will continue, you could make a forex trade by selling the Chinese currency against another currency, say, the US dollar. The more the Chinese currency devalues against the US dollar, the higher your profits. If the Chinese currency increases in value while you have your sell position open, then your losses increase and you want to get out of the trade.

If the indicator can establish a time when there's an improved chance that a trend has begun, you are tilting the odds in your favour. The indication that a trend might be forming is called a breakout. A breakout is when the price moves beyond the highest high or the lowest low for a specified number of days. For example, a 20-day breakout to the upside is when the price goes above the highest high of the last 20 days.
That turnaround didn’t happen immediately because a reflation bid was underway, with depressed financial and commodity-based assets spiraling back toward historical means. Gold finally topped out and turned lower in 2011 after reflation was completed and central banks intensified their quantitative easing policies. VIX eased to lower levels at the same time, signaling that fear was no longer a significant market mover.
In addition to the 12x execution speeds mentioned earlier a further 10x reduction in latency has been achieved through fibre optical connections to interbank servers in New York City.

Historically, bitcoin prices have exhibited high volatility. In the absence of regulations, volatility can be used by the unregulated brokers to their advantage and to a trader’s disadvantage. For example, assume the intraday bitcoin rate fluctuates from $500 to $530 U.S. dollars per bitcoin. For an incoming deposit of 2 bitcoins, the unregulated broker may apply the lowest rates to credit the trader $1,000 (2 bitcoins * $500 = $1000). However, once the trader is ready to make a withdrawal, the broker may use the lowest exchange rate and instead of the original 2 bitcoins deposited, the trader only receives 1.88679 bitcoins ($1,000/$530 = 1.88679 bitcoins). In reality, the unregulated broker may be exchanging bitcoins and dollars at say $515, and pocketing the difference at the expense of the client. (For more see Why Is Bitcoin's Value So Volatile?)
The AB=CD pattern is easy to identify on charts and consists of 2 equivalent price legs. It has specific Fibonacci measurements of each point within its structure, eliminating room for flexible interpretation. The C point must retrace to either a 0.618 or 0.786 and the BC projection is either 1.27 or 1.618. When the BC projection and the AB=CD completion converge closely and define a small area, the chance of a reversal increases.
If you are already trading with a reliable broker, it does not make any significant impact by moving to a broker based in Canada, as the CIPF compensation is only available for Canadian citizens. On the other hand, if you are from Canada, switching your investments to a Canadian-based broker will let you enjoy several benefits and make you are part of the CIPF program. Apart from that, traders with a smaller trading capital are better off with their existing brokers, as they will have not visible advantages of shifting to another broker.

The profit target is set at 50 pips, and the stop-loss order is placed anywhere between 5 and 10 pips above or below the 7am GMT candlestick, after its formation. This is implemented to manage risk. After these conditions are set, it is now up to the market to take over the rest. Day Trading and Scalping are both short-term trading strategies. However, remember that shorter term implies greater risk, so it is essential to ensure effective risk management.
Gold has a wide range to sideway with . That is why we would love to check it on daily chart rather than weekly chart now as this daily chart might give us more signals on what to do next.

Forex trading is not the type that you will learn on the go. You have to train extensively to know when to make the right buying and selling decisions.

To find free forex demo account, you can search the web.

One drawback of Robinhood’s simplicity is that as of 2019, you can only trade stocks, ETFs, and options on the platform — not bonds, mutual funds, or futures, and you can’t short-sell. But Robinhood is our “Best for Beginners” pick, and most first-time investors will probably want to stick to the basics. If you’re interested in bonds and mutual funds, Ally Invest has the best rates of our top picks. If you want to try futures trading, E*TRADE and Charles Schwab are your best bets.
Stage 1: The bulls push the market higher, followed by a sell off, this sell-off is typically characterized as the bulls taking profit of their positions, as they are anticipating a price ceiling (resistance). The retracement of this leg usually falls within the fibonacci retracement levels. (Learn more about technical indicators here and more specifically about fibonacci levels here).
How good are trading executions? The key to evaluating any brokers is the speed and reliability of your trade executions. Are you consistently able to trade at the price you’re trying for? If you’re trying to sell, and your trade request fails, and you’re offered a lower price, you’re probably being requoted. (Requoting effectively means you’re trading on a wider spread than you bargained for.) Does your broker offer price improvement on limit orders? For stop-loss orders, the brokerage’s execution quality comes down to the amount of slippage experienced when prices gap following data or news announcements. You should expect some slippage on stop-loss order executions — the question is, “How much?”
Leveraged trading in foreign currency contracts or other off-exchange products on margin carries a high level of risk and may not be suitable for everyone. We advise you to carefully consider whether trading is appropriate for you in light of your personal circumstances. You may lose more than you invest. Information on this website is general in nature. We recommend that you seek independent financial advice and ensure you fully understand the risks involved before trading. Trading through an online platform carries additional risks. Refer to our legal section.
Properties of cryptocurrencies gave them popularity in applications such as a safe haven in banking crises and means of payment, which also led to the cryptocurrency use in controversial settings in the form of online black markets, such as Silk Road.[66] The original Silk Road was shut down in October 2013 and there have been two more versions in use since then. In the year following the initial shutdown of Silk Road, the number of prominent dark markets increased from four to twelve, while the amount of drug listings increased from 18,000 to 32,000.[66]
All Australian forex trading brokers are open at least 24/5.

Not only can you trade through their forex trading platforms but the currency brokers also keep customer service open during all of these forex trading hours. This is critical if you require assistance even during the early hours of the morning.

In forex, investors use leverage to profit from the fluctuations in exchange rates between two different countries. The leverage that is achievable in the forex market is one of the highest that investors can obtain. Leverage is activated through a loan that is provided to an investor by the broker that is handling the investor’s or trader’s forex account.
The subsequent downtrend lasted into the late 1990s when gold entered the historic uptrend that culminated in the February 2012 top of $1,916 an ounce. A steady decline since that time has relinquished around 700 points in four years; although in the first quarter of 2016 it surged 17% for its biggest quarterly gain in three decades, as of December 2017, it's trading at $1,267 per ounce.

Having looked at the two most heavily traded currency pairs, let's now examine two of the least liquid major currency pairs, USD/CHF and GBP/USD, which pose special challenges to technically oriented traders. The so-called Swissy holds a place among the major currency pairs due to Switzerland's unique status as a global investment haven; estimates are that nearly one-third of the world's private assets are held in Switzerland. The Swiss franc has also acted historically as a so-called "safe-haven" currency alternative to the U.S. dollar in times of geo-political uncertainty, but this dimension has largely faded since the end of the Cold War. Today, USD/CHF trades mostly based on overall U.S. dollar sentiment, as opposed to Swiss-based economic fundamentals. The Swiss National Bank (SNB) is primarily concerned with the franc's value relative to the euro, since the vast majority of Swiss trade is with the European Union, and Swiss fundamental developments are primarily reflected in the EUR/CHF cross rate.
Expert Advisors (EAs) are programs that have been developed in MetaQuotes Language 4 (MQL 4) and are used to automate analytical and trading processes. These programs perform prompt technical analysis of price data, and manage trading activities on the basis of pre-programmed trading strategies. The entire routine work of technical analysis and trading can be programmed into an EA. However, please be aware that the OANDA MetaTrader 4 platform must be running on your computer, and it must be connected to OANDA’s servers, in order to run a EA.
Technological changes since the 1980s have transformed the forex market. Telephone dealing and paper confirmations are largely things of the past, replaced by sophisticated online forex trading platforms where everyone from giant banks to small businesses can trade forex actively. Now, businesses no longer have to obtain forex from banks; they can obtain real-time price quotes and execute trades via the online forex trading platforms. This can help businesses to better manage their forex liquidity needs and risk management strategies.
Back testing a trading strategy is a process that you can use to see if your strategy has made money in the past based on historical data.  But remember past results are not a guarantee of future gains. However, back-testing can provide you with confidence that your strategy has merit.  The longer your testing period, the more reliable the results.  Additionally, a paper trading strategy that is based on daily or weekly changes in the value of a currency pair is more likely to be replicated in real-time, then a strategy that is based on changes to tick data. This is because tick data can be unreliable and sporadic.
Anyone can sign up for the demo account according to the rules set by brokers. In majority cases, the broker permits traders to use a demo account only by registering through email. However, some brokers only permit those customers to use a demo account that has already deposited funds into the real account. Once the traders have a demo account, he/she is eligible for virtual funds to test the platform and their other trading features.

Starting a Forex LLC company can actually be fairly easy depending on what exactly the company's intentions are. If you are acting as a Forex broker, you will need a license in your country of operation to legally work. However, if you are not acting as a broker, then starting a Forex LLC is as simple as starting up a regular limited liability corporation (LLC). Because this market has far less regulation than many of the other financial markets, there are less requirements in getting a Forex LLC up and running.

Each forex participant plays a role of a buyer or a seller of a particular currency in a particular transaction. A seller offers a higher price of a currency like GBP/USD=2.0254 while a buyer will look for a lower price of a currency like GBP/USD=2.0250. The price of supply is called ASK while the price of demand is called BID. That is why if you suppose that GBP/USD price will be rising you will decide to buy the pound so far it is at a low price in order to sell it later at a higher price. When you buy GBP/USD you OPEN your position, when you are going to sell your pounds you CLOSE your position. OPEN and CLOSE positions are also referred to as LONG and SHORT positions. Sometimes the quotations are displayed in pairs like USD/JPY=114.88/92. This denotes a BID/ASK pair.
International parity conditions: Relative purchasing power parity, interest rate parity, Domestic Fisher effect, International Fisher effect. Though to some extent the above theories provide logical explanation for the fluctuations in exchange rates, yet these theories falter as they are based on challengeable assumptions [e.g., free flow of goods, services and capital] which seldom hold true in the real world.
IQ Option is currently offering traders the ability to choose both CFDs and Forex. Forex and CFDs happen to be one of the most popular methods of participating in the global trading industry. However, the CFDs offered by IQ Option are probably the least familiar though strict licensing and rules regulate both of the financial instruments. But CFDs and Forex have helped to create an industry where traders’ rights are protected.

When trading in the electronic forex market, trades take place in set blocks of currency, but you can trade as many blocks as you like. For example, you can trade seven micro lots (7,000) or three mini lots (30,000) or 75 standard lots (750,000), for example.

In essence, Forex currency trading is the act of simultaneously purchasing one foreign currency whilst selling another, mainly for the purpose of speculation. Foreign currency values increase (appreciate) and drop (depreciate) towards one another as a result of variety of factors such as economics and geopolitics. The normal objective of FX traders is to make money from these types of changes in the value of one foreign currency against another by actively speculating on which way foreign exchange rates are likely to turn in the future.
There are many cases of traders who failed at some point but ended up producing significant profits. For example, Jesse Livermore became famous making a fortune by shorting the stock market in 1929. However, he experienced both great success and humiliating failure during his ventures, filing for bankruptcy three times while also becoming a Wall Street legend by amassing a $100 million fortune through speculative trades.
Bullion bars and coins are sold at Monex Ask prices, which are subject to a buy charge. An “Ask” price is a dealer quote inviting an investor to buy, and “Bid” is a quote at which the investor would sell. The difference that the Ask price is greater than the Bid price is the dealer's bid-ask spread. Common industry practice is to reference a “Spot” price, which benchmark relates to a per-ounce price of the current (“Spot”) month on a commodity futures exchange for bulk industrial grade pure bullion for immediate delivery.
The Hanging Man candlestick is absolutely the same as the Hammer candlestick pattern. It has a small body, a long lower shadow and a very small or no upper shadow. However, the Hanging Man Forex pattern occurs after bullish trends and signalizes that the trend is reversing. As a result, the Hanging Man candle pattern is used by traders to open short trades.

Day trading practice depends largely on the strategy that’s being used to trade. For example, some day traders are focused on "feel" and must rely on paper trading accounts alone, while others use automated trading systems and may backtest hundreds of systems before paper trading only the most promising ones. Traders should choose the best broker platform for their needs based on their trading preferences and paper trade on those accounts.


Currency trading platforms provide tools to traders for executing buy and sell orders in the Forex markets. The platforms are made available by Forex brokers for the use of clients. Some Forex brokers offer their own custom trading platforms for order processing and research, but many provide order access through integrated trading and research programs. By far the most ubiquitous of these is MetaTrader 4 (MT4). MT4 is not opensource software, but is an openly extensible platform that allows trading system developers the ability to create scripts and automated trading algorithms that execute within its framework.
The legal status of cryptocurrencies varies substantially from country to country and is still undefined or changing in many of them. While some countries have explicitly allowed their use and trade,[50] others have banned or restricted it. According to the Library of Congress, an "absolute ban" on trading or using cryptocurrencies applies in eight countries: Algeria, Bolivia, Egypt, Iraq, Morocco, Nepal, Pakistan, and the United Arab Emirates. An "implicit ban" applies in another 15 countries, which include Bahrain, Bangladesh, China, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Indonesia, Iran, Kuwait, Lesotho, Lithuania, Macau, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Taiwan.[51] In the United States and Canada, state and provincial securities regulators, coordinated through the North American Securities Administrators Association, are investigating "bitcoin scams" and ICOs in 40 jurisdictions.[52]

To what extent fundamentals are used varies from trader to trader. At the same time, the best FX strategies invariably utilize action. This is also known as technical analysis. When it comes to technical currency trading strategies, there are two main styles: trend following, and counter-trend trading. Both of these FX trading strategies try to profit by recognising and exploiting price patterns.

Since automated trading systems vary in terms of speed, performance, programmability and complexity, what is good for one trader might not be good for another. Some Forex traders will want a program that generates reports, or imposes stops, trailing stops and other market orders. Other traders, such as those who are less experienced, may want a simpler program with a set-and-forget feature.
E’ molto facile, ad esempio, imbattersi in pubblicità che promettono facili guadagni (ad esempio 5.900 euro a settimana) grazie a fantomiatici sistemi per fare trading online in maniera automatica. Purtroppo questi sistemi non funzionano assolutamente, sono delle vere e proprie truffe. Di più, possiamo dire che questi sistemi nulla hanno a che fare con il trading online.
Currency pairs compare the value of one currency to another—the base currency (or the first one) versus the second, or the quote currency. It indicates how much of the quote currency is needed to purchase one unit of the base currency. Currencies are identified by an ISO currency code, or the three-letter alphabetic code they are associated with on the international market. So, for the U.S. dollar, the ISO code would be USD.

The good news is that forex account management is not something new. The concept is as old as investing in various currency pairs for profit, an activity that certainly preceded the advent of retail forex trading in the nineties. Forex brokers have a diversity of clients that keep them on their toes and that expect and get a higher level of service. Large institutional investors with millions to invest will typically devote a portion of their portfolios to foreign exchange. Individual account managers may also participate, as well, looking to diversify their funds under management. Lastly, professional fund managers, the most experienced of this group, will invest primarily in the hope of making substantial returns for their pool of investors. The point is that, like other forms of investment management, forex account managers with expertise in the field have existed for some time and are very experienced at what they do.

Gold price is widely followed in financial markets around the world. Gold was the basis of economic capitalism for hundreds of years until the repeal of the Gold standard, which led to the expansion of a flat currency system in which paper money doesn't have an implied backing with any physical form of monetization. AU is the code for Gold on the Periodic table of elements, and the price above is Gold quoted in US Dollars, which is the common yardstick for measuring the value of Gold across the world.

Bitcoin is the most popular of many existing cryptocurrencies. If you are new to the concept of Bitcoin, you can learn a lot about it from the official FAQ. Bitcoin (sometimes, acronymized as BTC) is already used by many Forex companies. It offers a very convenient deposit and withdrawal option for traders. Additionally, the cryptocurrency itself can be used as a counterpart in a currency pair — e.g. BTC/USD (Bitcoin vs. US dollar), BTC/EUR (Bitcoin vs. euro), etc. — and traded in the Forex market.

Unfortunately, the rise of online trading, electronic platforms, and open-access marketplaces have fueled a parallel rise in scams. The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has long been concerned about dubious courses designed to prey on the unsuspecting. "The CFTC has witnessed increasing numbers, and growing complexity, of financial investment opportunities in recent years, including a sharp rise in foreign currency (forex) trading scams," it warned in a release, as far back as May 2008.

The blender costs $100 to manufacture, and the U.S. firm plans to sell it for €150—which is competitive with other blenders that were made in Europe. If this plan is successful, the company will make $50 in profit because the EUR/USD exchange rate is even. Unfortunately, the USD begins to rise in value versus the euro until the EUR/USD exchange rate is 0.80, which means it now costs $0.80 to buy €1.00.

Increased capital – Normally, demo software allows you to choose how much capital you would like to trade with. As a result, many individuals opt for far more than they will have when they live trade. Greater capital allows for smaller losses to be more easily recouped. You may also find yourself unable to afford the expensive instruments you explored when using demo accounts.
There are interest rates that banks set to determine the key interest rate for different types of lending. Their size depends on the supply and demand for credit resources, market interest rates and other factors. Initially, the base interest rate is set by the central bank of the country; at this rate, all other banks can borrow from the central bank. The base interest rate set by the central bank has a direct impact on the value of said country’s currency. Therefore, tracking changes in this indicator can help the trader in making trades in forex.
Tax treatment of currency trading is very much dependent on the individual's tax status. Most dealers will not advise you regarding tax matters, nor should you take their advice if they do, because they lack the expertise to deal with the multitude of tax authorities around the world.

Gold is traded in the spot market, and the gold spot price is quoted as US dollar per troy ounce. Since 1919, the most common benchmark for the price of gold has been the London gold fixing, a twice-daily telephone meeting of representatives from five bullion-trading firms of the London bullion market. Gold is traded continuously throughout the world based on the intra-day spot price, derived from over-the-counter gold-trading markets around the world (code XAU).

Forex.com has two main account types that seek to appeal to a range of traders – standard account and a commission account. With a standard account, you get to enjoy ultra-competitive spreads without any commission on forex trades. With the commission account, you get to enjoy the tightest spreads available which include USD/EUR of 0.2 and above and a commission of 5USD for every $100,000 on forex trades. A major drawback is that the commission account isn’t available on MT4. So, if you opt for this account, you will have to use it via the Forex.com platform. These accounts are independent of each other. Once you open a standard account, you can’t change it to commission account.
