Standard vs. Pro accounts: The regular account and professional acount have same pricing at high value trades. The minimum deposits start at 250 base currency (£250, €250, or $250). My choice for retail traders would be the Standard account, especially as the Pro account is no longer available in most regions – except for certain old clients.
