Our take on FP Markets

We've traded through this broker's MT5 Raw account and can vouch for its low spreads and reliable trading environment. Its Raw account is designed for day traders and scalpers, and its Standard account will suit all others.

We also like the breadth of instruments available through its platform. You'll find over 70 currency pairs, as well as gold and silver priced in US dollars, euros and Aussie dollars. You can also go long or short on stocks and government bonds through over 40 ETFs.

Its free educational content also sets it apart from the competition. Fund your account to get access to trading signals from Trading Signal and Autochartist. You'll also get access to free trading courses for beginners and experienced traders, weekly webinars and e-books.

Trading through TradingView is easier than you think. Let us walk you through how to go about it, in 3 steps.

Step 1: Open an account with FP Markets

First, visit to open a live trading account. Complete your registration and fund your account. We suggest funding your account by card if you're in a hurry. You could also fund your account through a bank transfer, but may need to wait several business days for your deposit to be processed.

Then select 'TradingView' as your chosen trading platform in the 'Platforms' section, as illustrated here. FP Markets also supports MetaTrader 4, 5 and cTrader. You can open multiple account types later if you'd like to try these platforms too.

Step 2: Link your FP Markets and TradingView accounts

Next, login to your account on and navigate to a chart. Click the panel named "Trading Panel", which appears at the bottom of the page, below every chart. And finally click the FP Markets icon to connect both accounts.

TradingView will then request a number of permissions from you, such as the ability to i) view your balance and account activities, ii) process your orders and trades, and iii) access market data. Click "Accept" to proceed. Importantly, TradingView will never have access to the funds in your trading account.

Step 3: Trade through TradingView

For currency pairs, 1 lot typically represents 100,000 units of the base currency, such as 100,000 euros for the EUR/USD pair. As the balance of our trading account is just US$100, we considered trading a micro lot instead. A micro lot is one hundredth of the standard contract size, or 0.01 lots. In the case of the EURUSD currency pair, it represents 1,000 euros or 1,060 dollars based on the exchange rate of the time.

With the EURUSD currency pair trading around short-term support, we went long, and opened a 0.01 lot position worth 1,060 dollars in this instrument through a market order. This only required that we commit 35.33 dollar to the trade, calculated as 1,060 (the position's size) divided by 30 (the leverage). You'll need to do the maths yourself, as the margin impact isn't shown in TradingView's interface. We used a market order, but TradingView also supports limit orders and stop orders, as illustrated on this page.

For prudence, we placed a stop-loss order and a take-profit order at the same time, around levels of near-term support and resistance, 1.04 and 1.10 respectively. These levels are displayed on the instrument's chart, as orange and green horizontal lines. TradingView expresses your stop-loss and take-profit price points in currency units, pips, dollar amounts and percentage terms. You can adjust them at any time, even after you've placed your trade.


The combination of FP Markets' range of instruments with TradingView's charts is a match made in heaven. So it's perhaps no surprise that FP Markets has won dozens of awards, including that of "#1 Best Trade Execution" four times in a row. Open your account here to see for yourself.

Here's a summary of the things we like most and least about TradingView's platform:

  • Likes
  • TradingView's advanced charts.
  • Availability of complex order types.
  • Stop-loss and take-profit levels are shown on the charts.
  • Dislikes
  • A trade's required margin doesn't appear until the order is live.
