Tight Fixed Spreads. No Commission.

We offer ultra 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 normal trading hours. Other competitors advertise tight spreads but hide the commission they charge you on top. We believe in transparency. No hidden commission, fixed for 95% of the time. Simple.

Low Slippage

Due to Rakuten Securities' unique liquidity set up, we can offer low slippage even at times of high market volatily. Our pricing feeds reflect the actual market you will get filled at with the least possible slippage. We believe offering transparent pricing helps our clients make the best possible trading decisions.

Low Latency Servers

When you connect through Rakuten Securities Australia to trade, your orders are executed on our low latency servers. We believe that having your platform's servers directly connected to one of the major hubs of forex trading is essential for low latency and getting your order in just that milisecond before, to really capitalise on our already ultra-low spreads.

With full financial licensing, regulation, and base of operations here in Sydney, we believe we are the smart choice for Australians.
