Characteristics of each account type

I will briefly explain the characteristics of FXGT account type.

Standard Account

This is the most standard account type and is the recommended account type.

When FXGT used to offer only one type of account, only account type was this standard account.

There are no restrictions on the stocks you can trade, leverage, etc., and you also get bonuses.
Of course, you can also trade cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum with a high leverage of 1000x.
The spread is also narrower than the cent and mini accounts, so if you want to trade with FXGT, I think you should choose this standard account.

Cent Account

This account is designed for very small traders.

1 lot = 1,000 currencies, which is very small contract size.
The minimum deposit is $5, and you can trade with a high leverage of 1,000x, so you can trade with very little amount of money.

However, it is important to note that you can only trade currency pairs.
Cryptocurrencies and other CFDs cannot be traded.

If you are new to trading with FXGT, or if you want to try out a real account instead of a demo account, you may want to open a cent account.

Mini Account

Like the Cent account, Mini account is also designed for small traders.

However, this account is limited to 1 lot = 10,000 currencies.

You can trade more stocks than in a cent account, and you can also trade cryptocurrencies popular in FXGT.

However, while the specifications are almost the same as Standard account, the spread is actually a little wider than Standard account.
So, unless you are very particular about the lot size difference, this account type is not worth it.

If you would rather open a mini account, trade with a lower lot size in a standard account.

ECN Account

The ECN account is the first ECN account type adopted by FXGT.

Since it is an ECN account, transaction fees are collected.
The fee is $5 one way ($10 round trip) for currency pairs.
It varies slightly depending on the product, so please check the official website or MT5.

Spreads are quite narrow, start with a minimum of 0 pips.

One thing to note about FXGT’s ECN account is that you do not get any bonuses.
FXGT offers a generous bonus every month, but please note that the ECN account is not eligible for the bonus.

Other features

A lot of base currency options

FXGT has a wide range of account base currency options.

For ECN accounts, only USD and EUR can be selected.
But in other account types, you can hold your account currency not only in USD (US dollar), EUR (Euro), JPY (Japanese yen) but also in cryptocurrency.

The cryptocurrencies that can be held are BTC (Bitcoin), ETH (Ethereum), XRP (Ripple), and USDT (Tether).

Bitcoin has been increasing in price recently, but if you keep the balance of your account with Bitcoin, the value will increase without permission even if you are not trading.

However, there is also a risk, and when the price of cryptocurrency goes down, the value goes down as well.

Cryptocurrencies are a convenient way to deposit and withdraw, but be aware that prices can fluctuate significantly.


*Warning:

As of January 2021, Ripple (XRP) trading and deposit have been suspended. This is because Ripple Corp. has been sued by the US SEC and the price of Ripple has dropped significantly.

FXGT Max leverage is 1:1000

The maximum leverage of an FXGT account is 1:1000.
It’s quite high leverage.

It is worth mentioning that most of products can be traded with 1000 times higher leverage.

You can trade cryptocurrencies with FXGT, but only FXGT can trade cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin with a high leverage of 1000 times.

FXGT Minimum deposit is $5

FXGT minimum deposit is $5.
And deposit fee is free.

You can start trading with small capital with using high leverage.

FXGT Trading plaform

FXGT allows only MT5.

You cannot use MT4.

FXGT Stop out level

FXGT stop out level is 20%.Margin call is 50%.

*Only in ECN account, stop out level is 40%.

FXGT Negative balance protection system

Of course, NBP applies to FXGT accounts.

Does FXGT allow to use EA (Expert Advisor) tool?

Yes, you can use any EA on FXGT.

Does FXGT allow scalping trading?

FXGT does not prohibit scalping trading.

However, the stop level is rather wide.

For example, EURUSD is 2.8 pips.

FXGT is not suitable for scalping.


The FXGT stop level is summarized in detail in the separate article “FXGT Stop Level | Conditions for Scalping, Stop/Limit Orders“, so please refer to that as well.

FXGT Stop Level | Conditions for Scalping, Stop/Limit OrdersI will explain the stop level of FXGT . If the stop level is too wide, it is disadvantageous for trading. You lose the opportunity to make a profit because limit orders and stop limit orders do not be placed. I will also introduce the stop levels of major currencies....
