Our New Market Leading Spreads

At Rakuten Securities Australia, we are always working hard to improve the trading experience for our clients.
This is why we are very excited to announce our market leading spreads taking effect at the open of FX markets on Monday 06/11/2017.
We will offer tight spreads with no commission across all of our FX pairs. For example, the spread on EUR/USD will be fixed at 0.5 pips for 95% of the time.
Our competitors advertise tight spreads but hide the commission they charge you on top. The total cost actually averages 0.6-2 pips on the EUR/USD at competing brokers.
We believe in transparency. No hidden commission, fixed for 95% of the time. Simple.

The Return of Gold and Silver
We are also excited to announce that we will be adding Gold (XAUUSD) and Silver (XAGUSD) to our MT4 platform.
We will be applying the same ultra-tight, semi fixed spreads to Gold and Silver as we will for the FX pairs.

FC Barcelona Promotion
To celebrate our sponsorship of FC Barcelona, we are giving away a free jersey to the first 200 clients who register and trade at least 5 lots with us.
To enter, simply follow the link below and fill in your details.
Be sure to fund your account straight away to be able to trade and be one of the first 200 clients to score a jersey.

We are committed to supporting our clients by providing education on all aspects of the FX market.
As such, we are excited to launch our new series of educational webinars.
The first, called “FX Trading Basics”, will take place live on Monday the 6th of November from 3:00 PM – 3:30 PM AEDT.
