The all-time classic forex account, the Standard Account at ForexTime (FXTM) offers traders a wide range of features and perks suitable for all traders, from the most amateur to the most experienced. This account type was the first to offer traders the ability to trade standard lots (hence the name of the account type) and is the longest standing account type in the forex market.
Traditionally, standard forex accounts tied down traders with a number of limitations such as the requirement of a bulky amount of capital and high commission fees, but this is no longer the case in the modern forex trading industry and especially not at ForexTime (FXTM). We've reformed our FXTM Standard Account with benefits which add great value to the trading experience.
