The conditions for traders
I took a close look at the conditions for traders. At first glance, the provider makes a very good impression on me, because it offers many different account models. So you can customize your account to the capital deposited and trading style.
The spreads depend on the account type and start as low as 0.0 pips. An account with low spreads usually incurs a commission per lot traded. Overall, you are always cheaper on the markets with a commission account. This is also a plus point from me.
FBS Markets is specialized in Forex trading. This is also noticeable in the selection of tradable assets. Many currency pairs are offered, but the selection of CFDs is rather small.
Unlimited: A standard account from a deposit of $100. Leverage is selectable up to 1:3000 and fees are calculated via a variable spread (from 0.5 pips).
Cent: An account from $1 deposit for trading very small amounts. There are even centlots for trading. The maximum leverage is 1:1000 and the spreads are from 1 pip.
Micro: An account from $5 with fixed spreads. So the fees are 100% clear to the trader beforehand. The spreads start from 3 pips and the leverage goes up to 1:3000.
Zero Spread: There is no spread (fixed) with this account, but a commission of $20 per lot must be paid. This is overall a very favorable opportunity (from $500 deposit).
ECN: Direct access to interbank trading with no spread (from -1 pip). A commission of $6 per lot is payable and the leverage is a maximum of 1:500 high. You get direct market execution from $1000 deposit.
Unlimited: An account similar to the Unlimited account, but with smaller spreads. Available from $500 deposit with a leverage of 1:500.
The trading platforms
FBS offers the classic and popular trading platform Metatrader in version 4 and 5. This software has been widely known among private traders for many years. It belongs, so to speak, to every successful trader in the equipment.
With Metatrader, a wide variety of strategies can be tried out and adapted. The software offers almost unlimited setting options. It is available for the smartphone, tablet, browser and desktop.
I myself have had good experiences with Metatrader. Just about every well-known broker offers this software. After a short familiarization phase, it is easy to use.
