In order to help traders to create a successful trading strategy two account types were developed by the InstaForex Dealer Department specialists. Trading accounts’ types differ by the method of accounting spreads and commissions, which are picked by the trader opening an account.
These types of accounts are relevant for standard trading terms on Forex market and function without fees. Once a trader gets access to all trading instruments he/she pays a fixed spread setting a trade.
Insta.Standard accounts work for all types of traders and allow a trade to be settled with classical spread and with no fees. The main advantage of this type of account is its universality, as often a trader can change the trading leverage and work with a deposit size convenient for him/her. The features of the account allow trading with Micro Forex (minimum deposit $1-10), Mini Forex (minimum deposit $100), and Standard Forex (minimum deposit $1000).
The account of this type does not require any spread to be paid at opening a trade. For most currency instruments of Insta.Eurica account type zero spreads are applied, due to this the BID price is always equal to the ASK price. It should be noted that the offered price runs higher than the BID price (on the basis of which a chart in the trading terminal is plotted) by half of the standard spread for a given trading instrument which is rounded up to its integral value due to some technical peculiarities of the MetaTrader 4.00 platform.
This account type is recommended for newbies because it is not necessary to take into consideration the spread in case of pending orders usage: a pending order is executed right when the price reaches its value if the spread equals to 0. Before GTC orders’ placing and market entrance there is no necessity to calculate spread influence on the position result, this makes technical analysis highly effective.
Aside from the fact that Insta.Eurica accounts allow the newbies to get the hang of the market using a simpler system of trades conducting, this account type can be also used by professional traders, because its trade characteristics are the same as of Insta.Standard account type.
Cent.Standard and Cent.Eurica account types are developed for beginning traders and oriented to those clients who just learn to trade, and for this purpose they need access to the minimal possible trade volume. Micro Forex is available with the lot volume of 0.0001 of the market lot (the lot price is 0.1 U.S. cents) and allows practicing almost without any risks for deposit. This type of account will suit well those who want to test trading strategies with minimal risks using the trade advantage of 0.0001 lot.
In addition to the smallest allowed trade volume - 0.0001 of the market lot - the owners of Cent.Standard and Cent.Eurica accounts have the same trading terms as Insta.Standard and Insta.Eurica. The only constraint here is the maximally allowed deposit size for cent group accounts of Cent.Standard and Cent.Eurica related to their directivity to the beginning traders. For more experienced traders it is recommended to open accounts of Insta.Standard and Insta.Eurica types which do not have any size constraints for maximal deposit and deal size.
The size limitation of the minimal trade equals to 1 lot ($1 per pip) for accounts of Standard and Eurica types with balance over $100,000 or its equivalent in other currencies.
