Advantages and disadvantages

Every Broker has its pros and cons, let’s have a look at the ones that elevate & denounce BP Prime.

BP Prime Pros
  • Tight spreads
BP Prime Cons
  • No CFDs on stocks
  • Confusing information about the minimum deposit

To sum up the BP Prime Review

BP Prime adheres to strict regulatory guidelines of the FCA. The broker offers tight spreads on most assets and features a free demo account for practise trading. The amount of available CFDs is solid, but I am missing CFDs on stocks.

What is, however, strange is that if you take look a the PM Prime FAQ, you can notice that the minimum deposit is for a standard account is $/€/£100, for a pro account $/€/£1 000 and for a prime account $/€/£ 10 000. If you, however, look at the page account type, the minimum deposit for the standard and pro account is $/€/£5,000. So, I am not really sure which one is true. I guess you will have to contact their customer support if you want to trade with the broker.
