These types of accounts are relevant for standard trading terms on Forex market, and work without a fee. Once a trader gets access to all trading tools he pays a fixed spread when setting a deal.
Insta.Standard accounts work for all types of traders and allows a deal to be settled with a classical spread and no fee. The main advantage of this type of account is its universality, as at any time a trader can change the trading leverage and work with any deposit rate convenient for him. The capabilities of the account allow trading with Micro Forex (minimum deposit 1-10 USD), Mini Forex (minimum deposit 100 USD), and Standard Forex (minimum deposit 1,000 USD).
The account of this type does not require any spread to be paid at opening a deal. For most currency instruments of Insta.Eurica account type zero spreads are operated, due to this the BID price is always equal to the ASK price. It should be noticed that the offered price runs higher than the BID price (on the basis of which a chart in the trading terminal is plotted) by half of the standard spread for a given trading instrument which is rounded up to its integral value due to some technical peculiarities of the MetaTrader 4.00 platform.
This account type is recommended for newcomers because it is not necessary to take into consideration the spread in case of pending orders usage: a pending order is executed right when the price reaches its value if the spread equals to 0. Before GTC orders placing and market entrance there is no necessity to calculate spread influence on the position result, this makes technical analysis usage highly effective.
