I’m introducing how to open multiple account in FBS.
As summarized in the separate article “How to choose the best broker for beginners” and “The story saved by negative balance protection system“, by utilizing multiple accounts, you can operate more efficiently with less risk.
For example, if you make a profit, you can transfer it to another account frequently, or set a low leverage for highly volatile currency pairs or CFDs.
In FBS, you can open up to 10 accounts in each account types.
There are 5 account types in FBS excluding Trade 100 Bonus account, it means you can open up to 50 accounts totally.
You do not need to verify your identity to open the second and subsequent accounts, and you can create one in less than one minute.
In this article, I will explain not only how to create additional accounts, but also how to transfer funds and how to delete accounts that are no longer needed.
If you didn’t open FBS account yet, please refer to another article “How to Open FBS Account” and open it first.

Why You Need Multiple Accounts
By having multiple accounts, you can get the following benefits.
- Risk can be reduced by operating with multiple accounts
- Different account currencies and leverage can be selected
- You can change the trading tool
Distribute Risk to Multiple Accounts
By changing the currency pair and CFD to trade for each account, the risk itself is distributed to multiple accounts.
In addition, by setting the amount of each fund as small as possible, even if you got a loss cut, the damage can be minimized.
With negative balance protection system, which is one of the biggest features of forex brokers, you will not be in debt.
Therefore, if you make a profit, transfer funds to another account.
If you trade different currency pairs or different CFDs, it should be easier to calculate margins if you do not have the same account.
Different Currency, Different Leverage
When creating another account in FBS, you can specify the account currency and leverage setting in the same way as when creating the first account.
For example, when you want to start trading USD pairs with another account, you can set the account currency to USD for easy fund management.
In addition, you can also change the maximum leverage setting for each account.
When trading products with high volatility, you can reduce the possibility of hitting a loss cut by lowering the maximum leverage setting in advance.
FBS allows you to trade with 3000x high leverage, but the minimum leverage can be set from 1:50 by yourself.
Change Trading Tool
If a forex broker that offers multiple trading platform, such as MT4 and MT5, you can choose another trading tool when creating an additional account.
You cannot change the trading tools for existing accounts.
If you have been using MT4 before but want to switch to more sophisticated MT5, create an additional account and select MT5 as trading platform.
In addition, if you want to use an automatic trading tool (EA) that works only on MT4, you can use that EA by creating an additional account for MT4.
Please refer to separated article “FBS All Account Types” to know the conditions and specs of each account type.
How to Deposit into Additional Account?
There are two methods.
One is to deposit money into the additionally created account as before.
The other is the transfer of funds from an existing account.
You can easily transfer funds from the website.
Moreover, unlike deposit, the reflection is completed in an instant.
Also, if the account currency is different, it will be automatically converted into another currency.
The detailed procedure will be described later.
Complete in 1 minute if you have verified your identity
If you already have a real account and have completed the verification, you do not need to verify your identity to add an account.
Creation is completed in 1 minute.
If you haven’t been verified for your main account yet, take this opportunity to do it with referring to the description in the article “How to Open FBS Account“.
How to Open FBS Additional Account

However, since you have already entered basic information such as your address and verified your identity, you only need to specify the account type, currency, leverage, and other account specifications of the account you want to add.

There are two points to note when creating an additional account in FBS.
The first point is that if the account type you are adding is the same as the account type you currently have, you will need a balance of $100 or more in your account.
If you want to add a different account type, you can have zero balance.
The second point is that you can only have up to 10 accounts in total with the same account type.
I don’t think you need more than 10 accounts, but just in case.
