Frequently Asked Questions

What does ECN mean? Right Arrow

Electronic Communications Networks or ‘ECNs’ are off-exchange execution venues which allow market participants to trade with a range of counterparties anonymously. They are the main trading venues for OTC markets such as Foreign Exchange and Metals.

This basically means ECNs provide the technology and venue for price makers aka ‘liquidity providers’ to distribute their liquidity. Price takers (traders) can see these prices and execute trades against them. The ECN is therefore responsible for prices/quotes and the execution of orders.

See our ECN page for a detailed overview of the Global Prime ECN offering.

Does Global Prime profit from your losses? Right Arrow

All client trades, and therefore market risk, is passed on to Global Primes liquidity providers. Our A-book model means that your trades are not internalised, rather they are filled by our liquidity providers. This means we do not profit from your trading losses.

How can we verify this? The transparency provided by our world's first ‘automated trade receipts’ enable clients to query vital trade information on every trade, directly from within the client portal. This feature enables you to see the full order book at the time of your trade as well as which liquidity provider filled your trade.

Are scalping, hedging, EAs and HFT allowed? Right Arrow

All strategies are welcome at Global Prime. We don’t have restrictions on trading and we don’t interfere with your trades. We do however stress the importance of risk management and will generally only ever contact a trader when their risk is too high.
