Q&A

  • What are the differences between a Retail account and a Pro account?

    Everyone is a retail client unless they satisfy one of the requirements to be classified as a wholesale client under the Corporations Act 2001 Act (Corporations Act). Wholesale clients have different conditions available for trading to retail clients. This is because wholesale clients are expected to have a more sophisticated understanding of complex CFD products.

  • What if I am not eligible for a Pro trading account?

    If you are not eligible for a Pro trading account, you can still trade over 300 CFD products on our platforms as a Retail client. You can apply here for our Retail account.

  • Do Pro clients receive the same protections as Retail clients?
