A new trader to EmpireOption would notice that he or she can open one of three possible account types. The type of account opened will ultimately determine the trade requirements. Things such as bonuses and minimum account opening balance are impacted by the account type opened by the trader. The account types are:
a) Bronze acc: Starts from $300 to a maximum deposit of $1,999. All withdrawals are charged at $30, and withdrawals can only be made after 15 trades a month. The minimum the trader can withdraw is $100. There is no access to a demo account.
b) Silver acc: Starts from $2000 to a maximum of $9,999. There is a demo account access, withdrawals are charged at $15, and can be made only after 7 trades have been made in a month. A minimum of $100 can be withdrawn, and this is done faster than those for bronze account holders.
c) Gold acc: Starts from $10000. In addition to demo account access, withdrawals are cheaper and only 5 trades are needed in a month to make a withdrawal. Withdrawals can be processed in the fastest time (2 days). In addition, traders can withdraw as low as $1.
