Forex, or Foreign Exchange, sometimes just FX, is the largest financial market in the world. Simply put, it is how individuals and businesses convert one currency to another. FX transactions worth trillions of dollars take place every day, and unlike stocks or commodities, there’s no central exchange.

The flexibility of this market allows for a variety of operators to make use of it. Whether it is a multinational corporation buying a business in another country, an importer paying for goods purchased overseas, an investor paying for an asset he or she has purchased valued in a currency other than his or her own, or a retail trader/speculator, the forex market provides sufficient liquidity when speculating currencies.

Trade forex and benefit from the fluctuations

The forex market is not operational during weekends only. Trading starts early Monday morning in Asia and ends late Friday afternoon in New York, giving the opportunity to those looking to profit from market fluctuations. The relative unregulated nature of the market allows for unlimited profits, but, be aware, losses can be made too. Risk management, as simple as a stop loss order can limit losses and allow profitable trading.

The investors can select their leverage, ranging from 1:1 to 500:1 depending on each one's risk profile. They are afforded access to market liquidity and known execution.

We offer pricing in up to 60 currency pairs, including majors, minors, exotics, and crosses, and a full-service trading opportunity to all traders whatever their level of experience or sophistication is.

Opening a Demo account is a useful way for a novice trader to start learning the market without risking capital. Accessing all the advanced features of our platform aids new traders in comprehending how the market works and allows an opportunity to perfect and test certain strategies.

NA = Not Available

Quote Currency* = It is the second currency of the Forex Pair i.e for EURUSD the EUR is the Base Currency and USD is the Quote Currency

EURUSD** =  1.6 pips on EUR/USD can apply only when certain conditions are met (please contact your account manager for further information)

Margin Calculation for Forex

Account Leverage is 1:200. Margin for opening 1 lot EURUSD is calculated as follows:

((Quantity of Lots x Contact Size) x Account Leverage) x Risk Multiplier = Margin Required in Base currency

(1 x 100,000) x (1/200) = 500 EUR x 2 = 1,000 EUR

Note: The above spreads are applicable under normal trading conditions during day trading sessions. However, there may be instances when market conditions cause spreads to widen beyond the typical average displayed above.

  • Zero margin requirements for covering (=hedging) a running position in full, provided that the free margin is positive (margin level > 100%))
  • Trading hours are from 00:00 Monday until 23:00 on Friday for STP accounts Friday server time
  • Trading hours are GMT +2 (GMT +3 during daylight saving/summer time (DST))
  • Trading in micro lots is not allowed for accounts with a balance over $20,000
  • All margin and swap rates will be reviewed and monitored regularly
  • On Wednesdays, the regular swap and financing cost for the CFDs triple, thus covering weekend's charges
