Open a demo/live account with Direct FX. Once complete, you will receive an email with further instructions on how to access your demo/live MT4 account.

What are your spreads?

Direct FX provides competitive pricing which means that you will see low spreads from our top-tier liquidity providers. The spreads are as low as 0.2 PIPs on the major currency pairs.


  • Spread may widen further than 2.0 PIPs during certain market conditions and times of lower liquidity
Why are your spreads so low?

We offer a multi-bank, institutional grade price feed to both retail and professional traders alike. We are able to do this because we charge a small commission. Our business model is based on providing excellent execution. We feel that charging a small commission allows us to offer better execution.

What is the leverage on my account?

Accounts are set with a default leverage of 200:1, but can be adjusted up to a maximum of 400:1.

Is scalping allowed?

Yes, scalping is allowed in scalping authorized accounts.
