Types of MetaTrader 5 accounts
Binary.com offers a variety of account types to cater to the diverse needs of traders everywhere, whether you are an experienced trader or just starting out. Each account has been tailored to provide you with a unique opportunity to trade financial instruments.
Best of all, there is no minimum deposit requirement.
The Financial account (available in EUR and GBP) is suitable for a wide range of traders, both new or experienced. Trade commodities, cryptocurrencies, major and minor currency pairs with tight and variable spreads without commissions and a minimum deposit.
The Financial account offers new and experienced traders high leverage and variable spreads for maximum flexibility. Trade commodities, cryptocurrencies, major (standard and micro-lots), and minor currency pairs with high leverage.
The Financial Straight-Through Processing (STP) account is a 100% A Book account where your trades are passed straight through to the market, giving you direct access to forex liquidity providers. Trade major, minor, exotic currency pairs, and cryptocurrencies with tight spreads and higher trade volumes.
The Synthetic account allows you to trade contracts for difference (CFDs) on synthetic indices that mimic real-world movements. Available for trading 24/7 and audited for fairness by an independent third party.
Note: To protect your portfolio from adverse market movements due to the market opening gap, we reserve the right to decrease leverage on all offered symbols for financial accounts before market close and increase it again after market open. Please make sure that you have enough funds available in your MT5 account to support your positions at all times.

Note: At bank rollover, liquidity in the forex market is reduced and may increase the spread and processing time for client orders. This happens around 21:00 GMT during daylight saving time, and 22:00 GMT during non-daylight saving time.
2. Order execution
Order execution typically comes in two varieties: market execution and instant execution. With market execution, you will place an order at the broker's price. You agree on the price in advance. There are no requotes with market execution.
What about instant execution? In this case, your order is placed at the price that's available at that time. Requotes are possible if the price fluctuates a great deal before the order execution is complete.
The spread is the difference between the buy price and sell price. A variable spread means that the spread is constantly changing, depending on the market conditions. A fixed spread means that the spread is not affected by market conditions but it is subject to alteration at the Company's absolute discretion.
Most brokers typically charge a commission for each trade that you place. Binary.com currently charges no commission across all account types.
5. Margin call
When the remaining funds in your account is unable to cover the leverage or margin requirement, your account will be placed under margin call. To prevent a margin call escalating into a stop out level, you can deposit additional funds into your account or close any open positions.
6. Stop out level
If your account is placed under margin call for an extended period of time, it will reach the stop out level where it is unable to sustain an open position. This will lead to your pending orders being cancelled and your open positions being forcibly closed (also known as “forced liquidation”).
