Frequently asked questions

Which account type is best for me?

The best account type for you will depend on your trading goals and experience – whether you’re looking for more support from us or have the experience to take on more sophisticated platforms.

Our standard CFD trading account is designed for the everyday trader. It comes with competitive spreads on thousands of global markets, round-the-clock support, and access to our intuitive trading platforms across web and mobile.

An MT4 account gives you access to one of the most popular FX trading platforms. Although it’s a dedicated FX platform, you can also trade indices and commodities. It’s more suited to the experienced trader who wants to build automated trading systems and access advanced charting tools.

We also offer an Accredited Investor account for eligible clients who meet the qualifying criteria and choose to opt-in. Accredited Investors can access 2% margin on FX pairs as well as other account benefits, although they do lose some protections afforded to retail clients under both the Financial Advisers Act of Singapore (the “FAA”) and the Securities and Futures Act of Singapore (the “SFA”).

What do I need to open an account?

To open an account, we’ll need you to provide a few personal details, such as your name, address and NRIC or FIN so that we can establish your identity.

If you apply using Singpass via Myinfo, this is all we will need in the majority of cases. However, you may also be asked to provide supporting documents if we cannot verify the information provided – this could include a government-issued photo ID and proof of address.

Your application will be considered based on your individual circumstances; these include both income and savings. The minimum deposit amount is $150, or $250 if depositing via card.

The information you provide will be treated in the same secure manner as all your other data held with us.
