Trade Forex on fixed spreads with MetaTrader 4 or MetaTrader 5:

  • Standard account: trade on fixed spreads from 3 pips.
  • Eurica account: trade on raw spreads, subject to a 0.03% to 0.07% fee which varies with the currency pair. InstaForex recommends this account for beginners as bid and ask prices are identical.

Both accounts have otherwise similar trading conditions: a low $1 initial deposit, leverage up to 1:1000 and a 0.01 lot minimum trade size. In addition, InstaForex will pay 5% interest on your account's balance, or 2% per annum if your account becomes inactive. This is a particularly attractive offering, unmatched across our panel of brokers.

InstaForex accounts are available swap-free for clients of Muslim faith. Open an account online as usual, and reach out to your InstaForex manager before your first trade if this is of interest. Visit for more information.
