GENERAL INFORMATION AND REGULATION
Zurich Prime, launched in 2017, describes itself as a “no dealing desk” (NDD) Forex and CFD broker, headquartered in Romania, and domiciled in the Marshall Islands. Zurich Prime is not regulated. They provide a trading platform that offers traders a very wide range of assets for trading across Forex currency pairs, commodities, indices, and individual stocks wrapped as CFDs across both major and minor financial markets.
Zurich Prime is a Romania-based forex broker owned by the company U-Nex Solutions. It is not regulated and several watchdogs – UKs FCA (in 2015) and the Ontario Securities Commission (in 2016) have warned that it is operating in their respective jurisdiction without the proper license. Such warnings sometimes mean just that, as most countries require that the financial services providers are licensed and regulated, but more often than not, those warnings mean that said company is a scam.
Micro lots are allowed on Standard, Silver, and Islamic accounts. A minimum trade size of 0.01 lots is required on the Gold and Platinum account types. We don‘t see any information about maximum trade sizes or stop out levels on the broker’s website.
This brokers investment portfolio includes FX, Precious Metals, Commodities, Energies, Stocks, ETFs, Indices, and CFDs. FX options are made up of majors, minors, and exotics. Precious Metals include Gold, Silver, Platinum, and others. Commodities include Coffee, Wheat, Corn, Sugar, Cotton, and others. Energies are made up of Natural Gas, Oil, and others. Stocks include major options like Apple and Facebook as well as lesser-known options with a leverage of up to 1:25.
Four ETFs, Indices, such as the Dow Jones and NASDAQ, and CFDs on a large variety of instruments in all major markets are also available. The broker doesnt provide an entire list for each category, so it was impossible for us to count the exact amount that is available for each category. While we would have liked to see more transparency here, there is enough information to determine that the broker is offering a large variety of instruments.
SPREADS AND COMMISSIONS
The very best spreads are reserved for the most expensive Platinum and Islamic accounts, with starting spreads from 1-2 pips, when trading major currencies. The second-best option of 3-4 pips is exclusively offered on the Gold Account. At the bottom of the list, we see spreads from 4-5 pips on the Standard and Silver level accounts. Since the broker has built all of the trading costs into the spreads, it makes sense to see spreads that are a little higher than the industry average, although the spreads on the Standard and Silver account still seem to be higher than wed like to see, even with the lack of commission charges.
ACCOUNT AND LEVERAGE
There are four different account types to choose from with Zurich Prime. The Standard account can be opened with a deposit of as little as $250, and it offers a minimum Forex spread of 2.3 pips. The Silver account can be opened with a deposit of as little as $2,000, and it offers a minimum Forex spread of 2 pips, but also includes a free daily analysis and signals package, as well as advice by a trading expert. The Gold account requires a minimum deposit of $5,000, and offers a minimum Forex spread of 1.5 pips. The Platinum account requires a minimum deposit of $10,000, and offers a minimum Forex spread of 1 pip, as does the Islamic account which must be opened with a minimum deposit of $20,000. All accounts come with a few free perks, including a personal account manager, free signals for at least one month, and daily analysis, although the latter is not included in the Standard Account package. A total of 33 Forex currency pairs may be traded, as well as 7 spot commodities including gold, silver, and crude oil. As many as 43 leading individual global shares and 10 major share indices can also be traded, as well as 4 major ETFs (exchange traded funds).
A demo account is not available, which is unusual in the Forex / CFD trading industry.
There are no commission fees: Zurich Prime earns from its spreads, and from overnight financing charges.
