The service that we like the most about FBS is the deposit insurance, which helps you to insure between 10% and 100% of your deposit – as long as you have traded a certain number of lots, the broker pays you back the insured amount in case you lose it. This way you can stop worrying about your investment, and can focus on making some dough instead. 

 
And now some more detail. FBS is an international forex broker that offers three different account types to meet the needs of every trader, irrespective of their skill levels and portfolio sizes. 
 
The minimum deposit with FBS is $5 – and you can actually trade with the this amount because of the maximum leverage of 1:1000 and micro lot trading possibility. What's even better is that you don't need to deposit in order to try out the broker's services, as FBS offers a $5 no deposit bonus for anyone who opens a Micro account. 
 
For the more competitive traders, FBS hosts a monthly demo contest, where winners get to share a prize pool of $1000. 
 
Complimentary services are also available: the broker offers a branded FBS MasterCard that enables traders to make faster and more convenient payments to and from their trading accounts. While the card is available to any trader at the cost of $20, those who deposit $500 or more get it for free. 
 
As far as trading conditions are concerned, FBS' offering is pretty good: ECN/STP execution, average spreads (typical variable spread of 1 pips on EUR/USD for Micro and Standard accounts and 0.2 pips for Unlimited). 
 
Swap-free accounts and scalping are allowed. FBS doesn't accept U.S. traders.
