Global Prime ECN Features

The Global Prime ECN account is for traders who demand absolute performance from their broker.

Tight ECN spreads from 0.0 pips

Extensive and diverse liquidity mix comprising 3 prime brokers, 20+ tier-1 bank, non-bank market makers ensure our spreads rank among the top brokers globally across the products that we offer.

Better execution to lower your slippage

We hold our trading counterparties to a high standard. By maintaining fill ratios with our LPs of greater than 90% and using ‘no last look’ when supported, we execute your trades in record fast time for reduced slippage on your trades.

Protection through anonymous trading

We execute all orders through a single tag, meaning LPs see one client - Global Prime. Liquidity providers cannot reject your trades because you’re too sharp or reverse engineer your proprietary trading system.

Characteristics of institutional and retail ECNs

For Institutional Traders

  • Central limit order book (CLOB) allowing trading as price maker or price taker.
  • Basically an OTC version of an exchange that uses external liquidity from banks and other market makers for a diverse and competitive liquidity mix.
  • Trades are executed anonymously
  • The ECN is responsible for matching trades done between participants.
  • Institutional ECN examples: HotSpot FX, FXALL, EBS, FastMatch and TraderTools.

For Retail Brokers and Traders

  • Quote driven order book where traders can trade as (price) taker only.
  • Multiple bank and non-bank liquidity providers ‘aggregated’ into a best bid / best offer, and streamed to traders for them to execute against (as taker).
  • Trades are executed anonymously.
  • Orders are executed with liquidity providers and not B-booked.
  • The broker does not run a B-book or make money from traders' losses.

Institutional + Retail

Global Prime entered a strategic joint venture with Institutional ECN provider ‘TraderTools’ in 2020 and now offers this as a standalone product to its institutional clients.

  • This partnership makes Global Prime one of the world’s only institutional and retail broker ECNs.
  • Global Prime can provide direct ECN access to any of these institutional ECNs via FIX API or GUI - for institutional clients only. Minimum requirements apply.

Is Global Prime really an ECN broker?

Global Prime aggregates liquidity from tier-1 banks, non-bank market makers and (institutional) ECNs.

  • All Global Prime trades that exceed our prime broker minimum are executed with a liquidity provider. See Best Execution page for more information.
  • Since we back-to-back hedge all trades and don’t internalise any risk (excluding small tickets which are batch hedged), plus we provide trade receipts to prove exactly how every order was executed and with whom, we’re confident we’re doing the right thing by our clients and delivering a genuine ‘retail broker ECN’.

Global Prime ECN vs Market Maker or ‘ECN pricing’

We trade with, and not against you. But what does this even mean?


Global Prime

Market Maker
‘ECN Pricing’

No conflict of interest between you making money and broker profitability?
Wants clients to trade profitably?
Does not make money from your losses?
Does not make hedge execution decisions based on client trading behaviour or account profitability?
Does not benefit from wider spreads causing stop out of retail traders.
Does not benefit from interbank stop hunting.

Your questions, answered.

What is the ECN advantage? Right Arrow

Our cutting edge ECN technology enables us to leverage 10 years of trading relationships to provide clients anonymous access to a unique and diverse pool of liquidity.

This means that you can rest assured that we have built the ultimate trading environment that couples industry leading technology with years of trading experience which has culminated in Global Prime being recognised as the 'traders brokerage'.

Why is an exclusively ECN broker beneficial? Right Arrow

An exclusively ECN broker is beneficial as it means that you can focus on your trading and not your broker. In an industry that is full of brokers whose models are predicated on profiting from clients losses, our true ECN model stands in stark contrast to these practices by providing for accountability, transparency and honesty including post trade transparency.

Is there any conflict of interest between Global Prime and clients? Right Arrow

There is no conflict of interest between Global Prime and our clients. Why? Because we do not profit from clients losses. Our goal is to serve the clients needs before our own by delivering the best product to our clients. On the contrary, when you win, we win.

Does Global Prime profit from client losses? Right Arrow

Unequivocally, No.

Are Global Prime’s LP’s aware of my identity? Right Arrow

No, your personal identity is completely anonymous to our LP’s.

What does STP and NDD mean? Right Arrow

STP = straight through processing, which means that your trades are executed automatically by way of our ECN with no manual intervention.

NDD = No dealing desk which refers to a broker that does not market make rather, by way of our ECN we provide clients access to our network of LP’s, enabling every trade to be taken to the real market.
