We offer variable spreads only

As an ECN forex broker, Global Prime passes on the prices it receives from its liquidity providers to traders. This means our spreads are variable and fluctuate in line with market liquidity and volatility.

Our variable ECN spreads come from up to 26 different liquidity providers consisting of tier-1 banks, non-bank market makers and ECNs. This gives traders access to the tightest prices available, reducing your trading fees.

Don’t trust brokers with fixed spreads as these will usually come with strict trading restrictions, slower execution times, increased rejections (especially during fast markets and volatility) and higher spread costs. These restrictions can prevent you from making money.

Global Prime Variable Spreads

Fractional pricing

The prices streamed from Global Prime’s liquidity providers to traders will generally be to a fraction of a pip, also known as a ‘point’. Fractional pricing is how prices are quoted in the interbank forex market.

This significantly compresses the spreads streamed to traders and reduces trading fees.

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.

What are spreads from 0.0 pips? Right Arrow

Spreads from 0.0 pips refers to a broker's ability to price a product with a spread of 0.0 pips. This can normally only be done when a number of conditions are met, including: an aggregated or ‘ECN’ price feed (see ECN page) and no spread floor in place i.e. no minimum spread.

The term was first used in 2012 at about the same time that (news) ‘tick scalper’ automated trading systems were giving brokers headaches. Global Prime and a number of other brokers used the term ‘Spreads from 0.0 pips’ to help distinguish themselves from brokers who have spread floors/minimums and put restrictions on trading. Nowadays most brokers feature this term or ‘ECN’ in their advertising but they will have restrictions on trading due to their B-book model.

Does Global Prime have Spreads from 0.0 pips? Right Arrow

Global Prime has spreads from 0.0 pips with no restrictions and operates an ECN/STP model with no B-book. We prove this with trade receipts rather than fancy marketing terms.

What are spreads? Right Arrow

The Spread is the difference between the market bid and ask price on a security for an immediate order.

The spread is represented by the bid and offer quotes and can be perceived as a measure of liquidity in the market.

Generally speaking, tight spreads are indicative of high liquidity whereas wide spreads are an indicator of scarce liquidity.

Where can I find the average spreads? Right Arrow

You can find the average spreads at the following link: https://www.globalprime.com/trading-conditions/spreads/

What is the difference between the Bid and the Ask price? Right Arrow

The bid price represents the maximum price that a buyer is willing to pay for a security and the ask price represents the minimum price that a seller is willing to take for the security.

What are variable spreads? Right Arrow

Variable spreads deliver the best bid and offer prices available at a certain time as opposed to having the spreads fixed at a certain level.

How competitive are Global Primes spreads? Right Arrow

Global Prime offers some of the most competitive spreads in the market. With the average spreads on majors as low as 0.1 pips, Global Prime offers some of the tightest spreads.
