What's the difference between Fixed and ECN accounts?

Of course, the biggest difference is the type of spread.

ECN is just variable spreads.

FIXED means only fixed spreads.

I don't remember exactly, but I think there is only a difference in spreads. ECN account offers floating spreads and Fixed account fixed (obvi). There seems to be no more significant difference. Personally, I prefer an ECN account because it offers a bit lower spreads. But it seems that every trader should choose account individually, based on personal trading needs. In any case, it's a good thing that AAFX Trading gives its clients a choice between the account types, with slightly different trading conditions. Because I don't really like when there is no choice.

Well, everything is simple here.

Fixed is an opportunity to use fixed spreads from 2 points on currency pairs.

ECN - variable spreads from 0.5 points on currency pairs.
