I will briefly explain the characteristics of each account type.
LAND-FX Standard Account
LAND-FX Live account is a so-called standard account of STP method.
The maximum leverage is 1:500 and the minimum deposit is $300.
Please pay attention to the narrow spread.
The minimum is 0.7 pips, which is the lowest level in the forex brokers.
Also, if you open a standard account, you can trade all the products.
Some products cannot be traded with the ECN account described below.
Since LAND-FX has narrow spreads for almost all products, it is possible to take advantage of 500 times higher leverage and start trading with a small amount of funds while suppressing risk.

LAND-FX ECN Account
LAND-FX ECN account is an ECN method account type.
Since it is an ECN method, transaction fees are charged, but it is a cheaper level than other brokers, with a round trip of $ 7 per lot.
Also, the minimum spread is from zero pips, so it can be a main account enough for long-term use.
There are 3 points to note.
The first point is that the maximum leverage is suppressed to 1:200.
High leverage is not a good thing, but if you want to trade at 500x higher leverage, choose Standard account.
The second point is that the products that can be traded are limited to currency pairs and metal (gold, silver).
You cannot trade energy or stock indexes on ECN account.
The third point is the minimum deposit amount. The minimum deposit amount for LAND-FX ECN accounts is $2000.
It’s a bit high, so if you want to start with a small amount of money, start with Standard account.

Yes, you can use any EA on LAND-FX.
Does LAND-FX allow scalping trading?
LAND-FX does not prohibit scalping, but there are some restrictions.
Normally, there is no problem, but the use of HFT (High Frequency Trading) tools and scalping before and after the announcement of economic indicators are prohibited by the regulations.
The stop level of LAND-FX is a little wider, and it is 1.2pip for EURUSD.
I think it is acceptable, so it is possible to make a scalping trade so as not to violate the regulations.
