Our verdict on Global Prime

With excellent trading conditions and a variety of trading tools, Global Prime appeals to traders looking for a new MT4 broker with a low-cost trading environment.

An ASIC-regulated broker, Global Prime’s trading conditions include some of the tightest spreads in the industry, with spreads that start at 0.10 pips on its commission-free account, low commissions on its ECN account, and no minimum deposit requirements. Global Prime also charges low non-trading fees, a welcome development in an industry in which fees are charged on almost every transaction.  

Global Prime offers support for the MT4 and TraderEvolution platforms, alongside a variety of trading tools, including FIX API, TradingView, Zulutrade, Myfxbook Autotrade, and VPS services.  However, traders should note that most of these tools are available at an extra cost.

While Global Prime provides excellent educational courses for beginner traders, it provides virtually no market analysis.  Additionally, in order to access the educational materials, traders will have to pay a fee of 299 USD and a monthly subscription of 50 USD.

  • No swap-free account option

Is Global Prime Safe?

Yes, Global Prime is a safe broker for Australian traders to trade with.  It maintains regulation from ASIC, considered one the world’s best regulators, the FSA of Seychelles, and the VFSC of Vanuatu.  

Founded in 2010 and headquartered in Australia, Global Prime provides services to over 10,000 traders in 196 countries worldwide.  It maintains regulation from the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) of Australia, the Vanuatu Financial Services Commission (VFSC), and the Financial Services Authority (FSA) Seychelles.  See below for more details:

  • Global Prime Pty Ltd, ABN 74 146 086 017, Global Prime holds an Australian¬†Financial Services Licence (AFSL) to carry on financial services business in Australia, limited to the financial services covered by its AFSL no.385620.
  • Gleneagle Securities PTY Limited trading as Global Prime FX is a registered Vanuatu company (Company Number 40256) and is regulated by the VFSC.
  • Global Prime FX Ltd is a registered Seychelles company (Company Number 8426189-1) and holds a Securities Dealers Licence SD057 issued by the FSA.
Australian traders will be trading under the Global Prime subsidiary authorised and regulated by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC). 

In early 2021, ASIC tightened its restrictions on CFD trading to better protect traders. As a result, Global Prime clients in Australia will have a leverage limit of 30:1 for Forex trading and will be provided negative balance protection, meaning that traders can never lose more money than they have in their trading accounts. In addition, ASIC regulations ensure that Global Prime keeps its operational funds segregated from client accounts, but also prevent Global Prime from offering promotions or bonuses. 

While the additional protection offered by ASIC regulation is welcome, some Australian traders may find the low leverage levels and lack of bonuses at Global Prime restrictive. The only way around these restrictions is to trade with a broker which does not have ASIC regulation, which of course then means less protection.

Overall, because of its long history of responsible behaviour and strong international regulation, we consider Global Prime a safe broker to trade with.

Global Prime’s Trading Fees

Global Prime’s trading fees are lower than other similar brokers.

Unlike other brokers that offer a range of account types with lower spreads linked to higher minimum deposits, Global Prime offers only two market-execution accounts with no minimum deposit. The commission-free account has the trading costs included in the spread while the ECN Account offers tighter spreads and a small commission per trade. For more details on Global Prime’s account types, click here.  

Both accounts are available on the Metatrader4 and the TraderEvolution trading platform (click here for more on Global Prime’s trading platforms).

Global Prime’s fee structure is transparent, and it publishes all the spread and commission costs associated with either account.

Global Prime’s accounts were assessed to compare the costs to those of other forex brokers. The costs were evaluated based on the trading fees on one lot (100 000 USD) on the EUR/USD, including the spreads and commission.

Trading Cost Formula: Spread x Trade Size + Commission = Cost in Secondary Currency (USD):

As you can see from the table above, the trading costs on the Commission-free Account are built into the spread and are marginally lower than the costs on the ECN Account, which has a small commission that changes depending on your base currency (more details can be found in the accounts section).

Global Prime‚Äės Swap Fees

Another important cost to consider is the swap rate charged on positions held overnight.   Interest is paid (or received) for each night a position is held.  In the case of Forex instruments, the amount charged depends on both the positions taken (i.e. long or short) and the rate differentials between the two currencies traded. Swap rates are driven by the interbank spread and cross-currency basis.  Global Prime’s swap rates are published on its website for each financial instrument. The following calculation can be used to work out swap fees:

Swap calculation = pip value x swap rate (in points) 

For example, the swap fee on a long position of EUR/USD is -5.07 USD, and -0.394 USD on a short position.

Overall, Global Prime has some of the lowest trading costs in the Forex trading industry. The average cost of trading one lot of EUR/USD is 9 USD at most other large brokers, so whichever account you choose will be lower-cost than most other brokers. In addition, Global Prime has no minimum deposit requirements, though it does recommend a minimum of 200 AUD or equivalent, making it a good choice for both beginner and experienced traders.

Non-trading Fees

Global Prime’s non-trading fees are lower than other similar brokers.

Some of the most overlooked trading costs are the non-trading fees that are charged by brokers.  These fees can significantly affect your profitability and so should be carefully scrutinised.

At Global Prime, no fees are charged for deposits or withdrawals, and Global Prime does not charge inactivity fees on dormant accounts.  Dormant accounts will, however, be closed after three months of account dormancy.

Overall, this is a welcome development in an industry that charges fees on most transactions.

Opening an Account at Global Prime

The account opening process at Global Prime is fully digital, fast, and hassle-free compared to other brokers. 

All Australian traders are eligible to open an account at Global Prime but will have to follow the fully digital five-step application process. 

Creating an account is straightforward, the process is fully digital, and accounts are usually ready within one day. Global Prime offers joint and individual accounts, but we will focus on opening an individual account:

How to open an account at Global Prime:

  1. New traders will have to click on the ‚ÄúLive Trading‚ÄĚ button at the top of the page where they will be directed to choose their preferred base currency and country of residence.¬†

  2. Next, traders will have to register an account with their name, email, and register a password.  

  3. Global Prime’s intake form requires clients to fill in their personal details, including date of birth and mobile number. 

  4. Prospective traders are then required to fill in their physical addresses and review the account application details.

  5. Traders will then have to accept that they have read the Declaration and consent to identification verification.

  6. Once this step is complete, traders are asked to complete a short survey and FX Quiz that will help Global Prime assess the state of their finances and trading knowledge. While most brokers don’t include this step in the account-opening process, it is a responsible move in an industry that is often accused of an irresponsible approach to consumer protection.

  7. Global Prime needs at least two documents to accept you as an individual client:

    1. Proof of Identification ‚Äď current (not expired) coloured scanned copy (in PDF or JPG format) of your passport. If no valid passport is available, a similar identification document bearing your photo such as an ID card or driving licence will work.

    2. Proof of Address ‚Äď a Bank Statement or Utility Bill. Please ensure, however, that the documents provided are not older than 6 months and that your name and physical address is clearly displayed.

  8. We advise you to read Global Prime’s risk disclosure, customer agreement, and terms of business before you start trading. 

  9. Once the application is approved, traders can log in and fund their accounts.  

Compared to other similar brokers, Global Prime’s account opening process is fast, generally hassle-free, and fully digital, and accounts are ready for trading in one day.

Global Prime’s Accounts

Global Prime offers two accounts, which is average compared to other ECN brokers, and its accounts are suitable for both beginners and more experienced traders.  

Global Prime offers two simple ECN account types which are suitable for beginners and more experienced traders.  Trading is offered on multiple assets, including Forex, commodities, indices, bonds, cryptocurrencies, and equities (click here for more on Global Prime’s financial assets). 

Beginner traders are inexperienced traders who have never traded before, or who have been trading for less than a year.  Beginner traders often do not want to risk trading large sums of money and generally will not be able to trade full-time during the workweek. 

Accounts with lower minimum deposits and which allow trading in micro-lots are generally more suited to beginner traders.  Global Prime’s accounts have no minimum deposit requirements (although it recommends starting with an initial deposit of 200 AUD) and allow micro-lot trading.  

In general, experienced traders tend to prefer accounts with higher minimum deposits and tighter spreads. However, at Global Prime, this trade-off does not occur as both accounts have excellent trading conditions.

Trading infrastructure hosted within Equinix NY4 data centres that cross-connect to all trading counterparties for the lowest possible latency. Average fill times of just 30ms make Global Prime one of the fastest brokers in the world for Forex and Metals.

Due to ASIC regulation, Australians can access leverage of up to 30:1 on major Forex pairs. Hedging, scalping, and algorithmic trading are unlocked on both accounts, but Global Prime does not offer Islamic Accounts.  See below for account details:

Account Details

 

Commission-free Account

As the name suggests, the commission-free account has no commission and offers spreads that start at 0.10 pips on the EUR/USD, which is much tighter than other brokers. There are no minimum deposits on this account, but due to the margins required when making leverage trades, a minimum starting balance of 200 AUD is recommended. This account is better suited to beginner traders who do not want to spend time calculating commissions costs.  Micro-lot trading is also available on this account.

Commission-based ECN Account

The ECN Account is Global Prime‚Äôs raw spread account. Spreads average at 0.28 pips on the EUR/USD ‚Äď which is extremely tight compared to other brokers. ¬†However, a commission is charged per lot traded. As with the Commission-free Account, the minimum recommended deposit is 200 AUD.

On the ECN Account, commissions are charged differently depending on the preferred base currency of your account. See the table below for the commissions in a selection of common base currencies:

Global Prime Commission

It‚Äôs also worth pointing out how cheap the commissions are with an AUD base currency. Given that (as of November 2021) the USD/AUD is currently at 1.39, the commission cost per lot with an AUD base currency is the equivalent of 5.03 USD ‚Äď a substantial saving of around 2 USD per lot when compared to an account with a USD base currency.

Demo Accounts

Global Prime also offers a demo account with virtual funds that can be topped up on request. Demo accounts do not expire unless there is no activity on the account for more than 30 days, at which time they will be suspended.  However, they can be reactivated at any stage. Demo accounts are a great way to practice trading in a risk-free environment, and it gives traders an opportunity to familiarise themselves with MT4 and the TraderEvolution platforms.

Deposits and Withdrawals

Global Prime offers a wide range of funding methods, and deposits and withdrawals are free. 

In line with Anti-Money Laundering laws, Global Prime does not accept payments from third parties. Traders must ensure all deposits into their Global Prime trading account come from a bank account in the same name. Additionally, payments from a joint bank account will be accepted if the account holder is one of the parties on the bank account.

Global Prime accepts bank wire transfers, debit and credit card payments, and various e-wallet payment methods, including Skrill, Neteller, fasapay, Paypal, Bitwallet, Dragonpay, Bpay, and Poli, among others. ¬†No fees are charged for deposits or withdrawals, but traders should note that intermediary fees apply. ¬†Additionally, while most deposits, except for bank wire transfers, reflect immediately, withdrawals are processed within 1 ‚Äď 10 days, which is slower than the industry average. ¬†See below for more details:

Base Currencies (Trading Account Currencies)

Global Prime offers 6 base currencies, an average range compared to other forex brokers, and offers accounts denominated in AUD.  

Global Prime offers a reasonable range of base currencies, including AUD, USD, CAD, SGD, EUR, and GBP, which is good for Australian who will likely have AUD bank accounts. Australian traders will therefore be able to avoid paying conversion fees, unless trading on instruments with other base currencies, such as the EUR/USD.

In this case, it is better for traders that trade in large volumes (more than 10 lots a month) to open an account denominated in USD at a digital currency bank. This is because when trading a USD quoted currency pair with an AUD account, there will be a small conversion fee for every trade made.

Overall, Global Prime offers an average range of base currencies compared to other brokers, and offers accounts denominated in AUD.

Trading Platforms

With support for MT4 and TraderEvolution, Global Prime’s platform support is average compared to other brokers.  

Global Prime offers support for two third-party platforms ‚Äď MT4 and TraderEvolution. ¬†Both are available on PC but not Mac and allow for a smooth trading experience with all the necessary trading tools and resources on hand to conduct research and analysis, enter and exit trades, and use third-party automated trading software.

Metatrader4 (MT4)

While not the most beginner-friendly software, MT4 has been the industry-standard platform for trading Forex and CFDs since 2005. Its intuitive interface and user-friendly environment provide essential tools and resources for successful online trading.    Features of the MT4 include:

  • A built-in library of more than 50 indicators and tools to streamline the analysis process.
  • An impressive array of analytical tools, available in nine timeframes for each financial instrument.

Traders should note that TradingView is not available on the MT4 platform, but traders have access to Myfxbook Autotrade, Zulutrade, and VPS services

TraderEvolution

Relatively new on the market, TraderEvolution platform caters to professional traders seeking more advanced functionality for order entry, analysis, and algorithmic trading.  The platform integrates directly with TradingView to provide extensive technical analysis.  Other features of TraderEvolution include:

  • 14 fully customisable chart types
  • Multiple time frames
  • Ability to view market depth
  • One-click trading

Traders should be aware that while TradingView is available on TraderEvolution, the VPS and social trading platforms are only available on MT4.  

Global Prime TraderEvolution

Overall, although Global Prime only offers the MT4 and TraderEvolution platforms, which are not as beginner-friendly as the proprietary platforms offered at other brokers, MT4 is considered one of the best third-party platforms in the industry.  Additionally, TraderEvolution offers excellent functionality and integrates with TradingView to provide extensive technical analysis.  

Mobile Trading

Global Prime’s mobile trading platforms are average compared to other similar brokers.  It offers mobile versions of MT4 and TraderEvolution, but no proprietary mobile trading solutions.  

Global Prime offers support for MT4 and TraderEvolution mobile trading apps for Android and iOS. 

Traders should be aware that there is some loss in functionality when compared to the desktop trading platforms, including reduced time frames and fewer charting options, but traders can close and modify existing orders, calculate profit and loss, and trade on the charts. 

Trading Tools

Global Prime offers an average range of trading tools compared to other similar brokers.

Global Prime’s range of trading tools includes TradingView, complimentary VPS services, Myfxbook Autotrade, Zulutrade, FIX API, and a PIP Profit calculator.  

TradingView

Global Prime’s TradingView integrates directly with the MT4 trading platform.  TradingView is free of charge for traders who open a live account on TraderEvolution.  It is an excellent tool for researching, charting, and screening any instrument.  Additional features of Global Prime’s TradingView tool include:

‚ÄĘ 50+ intelligent charting tools

‚ÄĘ Over 100,000 custom user-built indicators and scripts

‚ÄĘ Synchronised layout for multiple charts

VPS

Available on MT4, Global Prime offers a free VPS service to traders who trade over 20 lots per month. The service is offered through two third-party providers ‚Äď ForexVPS and Beeks. ¬† VPS services ensure trades are never disrupted by technological or connectivity issues, such as load-shedding or internet service failure, which is a benefit to algorithmic traders who need to be connected to a server 24/7 to maximise uptime. ¬†Other benefits of the VPS service include:

  • 24/6 VPS email support

  • 24/7 Redundant power to your VPS

  • 24/7 Redundant internet connectivity to your VPS

  • Low latency connectivity to FP Markets trading servers for precision trading

  • Uninterrupted EA trading

Clients trading less than the required volume will receive the discounted VPS rate charged to their MT4 account on a monthly basis. If there is insufficient balance available in the client’s account to charge for the VPS, the VPS will be cancelled.

Myfxbook Autotrade

Myfxbook Autotrade is one of the most popular copy trading platforms on the market. This service allows you to copy the trades of any system you select directly into your Global Prime MetaTrader 4 account.  Traders will have to contact MyFXbook Autotrade to find out about the charges associated with using the service.

One of the benefits of using the Myfxbook Autotrade copy trading platform is its functionality. It offers multiple copy trading modes and there is no limit on the number of Strategy Providers that can be followed.  

On the whole, copy trading is useful for traders who are interested in the financial markets but lack the experience and knowledge. 

Zulutrade

Zulutrade, a third-party platform, is a peer-to-peer social trading application where traders can choose among thousands of registered traders from 192 countries. ¬†Traders are ranked using ‚ÄúZuluRank‚ÄĚ according to a number of different metrics, including their overall performance, stability, maturity, exposure, and minimum equity required.¬†

ZuluTrade linking is available under the following conditions:

ZuluTrade charges a subscription fee of 30 USD per month, and it charges 25% in monthly profits.

Like Myxfbook Autotrade, Zulutrade is an excellent option for traders who want to trade on the markets but lack the experience and knowledge to do so.

FIX API

The Global Prime FIX API solution is designed for professional traders looking to deploy their proprietary algorithmic trading solution with the lowest possible latency.

The FIX (Financial Information exchange) protocol provides traders with real-time communication between client, trader, investment fund or broker, and liquidity provider.

The API gives clients complete control over data that is sent and received without needing intermediary software.

In order to use these services, traders will have to maintain an account balance of 25,000 USD. ¬†Additionally, traders will have to pay 2,000 USD in commissions per month ‚Äď commission may be negotiated but the minimum commission will stay the same.

PIP Profit Calculator

A Forex Profit Calculator is a tool that can be used to help you figure out how much money and pips would be made, or lost, in a trading position. To find this information, you input values into the calculator for the trade and it will simulate what would happen if you closed your position with profit or loss. 

Overall, Global Prime offers a good range of trading tools, butTradingView is only available on TraderEvolution, while the VPS and copy/social trading platforms are only available on MT4.

Global Prime’s Market Analysis Materials

Global Prime’s market analysis materials are limited compared to other large international brokers

Global Prime’s market research materials are limited compared to what’s available at other large international brokers, but it does offer the services of TradingView to all clients who register an account.  TradingView is an independent company tool recommended for new traders wanting to learn technical analysis or those that want an independent opinion on their trades. 

Most other brokers provide a daily, updated market analysis blog featuring all the latest market movements, which is unavailable at Global Prime.  

Overall, Global Prime’s market analysis section is limited in scope. It could improve its market analysis materials by providing comprehensive, regularly updated, and multi-format content.

Customer Support

Global Prime‚Äôs customer support is available 24/5 via live chat, email, and telephone ‚Äď though telephone support requires calling an Australian number, and you will be charged accordingly.

Because Global Prime is based in Australia, customer service is open from 22:00 (GMT) Sunday until 22:00 (GMT) Friday. 

We found the customer service responsive (our questions were answered immediately), polite, and very knowledgeable.   

Evaluation Method

We value transparency and openness in the way we review the partners. To bring transparency to the forefront, we have published our review process that includes a detailed breakdown of how we review Global Prime’s product offering. Central to that process is the evaluation of the broker’s reliability, the platform offering of the broker, and the trading conditions offered to clients, which are summarised in this review. Each one of these is graded, and an overall score is calculated and assigned to the broker.

Global Prime’s Risk Warning

Trading Forex is risky, and each broker is required to detail how risky the trading of Forex CFDs is to clients. Global Prime would like you to know that: Trading derivatives are high risk. Losses can exceed your initial investment. You should only trade with money you can afford to lose. Any information or advice contained on this website is general in nature and has been prepared without taking into account your objectives, financial situation, or needs.
