Account Types

In Purple Trading, we offer several types of accounts depending on your approach to financial markets or your trading style. It doesn’t matter if you are a professional or leisure trader with scalping, intraday, or swing approach or even if you prefer investing over trading, at Purple Trading we’ve got you covered.

In Purple Trading, you can choose from these types of accounts:



Standard account for clients of Purple Trading. You will receive the standard ECN account automatically once you have opened a real account with us. It offers the lowest possible spreads directly from our liquidity providers and a modifiable commission per traded lot (see below). These qualities are what make the ECN account a common choice in the eyes of intraday and scalping traders.



A secondary type of account in which you do not pay for the volume of trades executed, however, this is reflected on the spreads which are slightly widerthan in the ECN account. The STP account is potentially suitable for position/swing trading. Our clients can apply for an STP account via PurpleZone.


Investment account


This account serves as your link to the wide range of investment products that we offer to our clients. These include passive ETF portfolios, dynamic investment strategies created by professional traders, as well as their “mini” version which is more suitable for smaller investments because they can invest as little as 100 EUR. All these modern investment products can be found in your PurpleZone, depending on your investment questionnaire evaluation.

PRO Account


This account is proof that in Purple Trading, we welcome also professional traders. A professional account can be set up as an ECN or STP variant for those clients who meet the legislative conditions for obtaining the status of a professional client. Learn more about professional client status.

What is the difference between STP and ECN account?
Show answer
STP account has no commission charged per trade, but there is a higher spread compared to the ECN account.
The spreads are lower for the ECN account - from 0.1 pip + fixed commission 10 USD / 1 round-turned-lot / trade. For lower trading volume, the commission is charged proportionately, e.g. 1 USD/0.1 lot/trade.
The first trading account that is automatically opened to a client is in ECN account type.
Commission and spread may be lower within our Trader Status loyalty program.
