What base account currencies are offered ?

A base currency is the currency in which the account is denominated. FXPRIMUS offers USD, EUR, GBP, SGD and PLN denominated accounts (some accounts types have less).

FXPRIMUS account types

FXPRIMUS offers its PrimusCent, PrimusClassic, PrimusPRO and PrimusZERO accounts. The PrimusCENT and PrimusCLASSIC accounts do not charge commissions, and have an average spread from 1.5 pips.

The PrimusCENT account is as the name suggest a Cent account, offering smaller trade sizes than the other accounts. This account could be used, for example to test out strategies on a live account with small trade sizes.

The PrimusPRO and PrimusZero account do charge commissions. The PrimusZERO has the lowest commission charge, of $5 per lot sound trip. The PRIMUSZero account, as its name suggests, can offer Forex spreads from 0, plus commission. However this account (which can be seen as aimed in particular at automated traders) has lower maximum leverage than the other accounts, at 500:1 versus 1000:1 (increasing leverage increases risk), at VFSC regulated FXPRIMUS.

The minimum deposit is $15. There is also an Economic Calendar and Trading Tools on the FXPRIMUS website (available to all).

FXPRIMUS commits itself to rapid order transmission. This can be important for Forex traders particularly those who use automated trading strategies, which are allowed at FXPRIMUS.
