RISK WARNING:

Trading of complex financial products, such as Stocks, Futures, Foreign Exchange (‘Forex’), Contracts for Difference (‘CFDs’), Indices, Options, or other financial derivatives, on ‘margin’ carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to trade any of these markets you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and, therefore, you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading these markets, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any questions or doubts. Please carefully read our full ‘General Risk Disclosure’ and ‘Risk Disclosures for Financial Instruments & Investment Services’.

About Forex Trading Terminology

'Margin' is the capital requirement necessary to open a position when forex trading.

A 'Margin call' is when the account's equity falls below the margin requirement for maintaining open positions.

A 'Margin Call' occurs when the account's equity to margin requirement reaches 80% or lower. When the account's equity to margin requirement drops to 50%, the account will be stopped out and all positions will be closed in order to avoid any additional losses.

A 'Pip' is the smallest price change that a given exchange rate can make. Since our major currency pairs are priced to five decimal places, the smallest change is that of the fourth decimal point. For example, if the USD/CAD currency pair moves by 0.0001USD then this is 1 pip.

'Leverage' gives the trader more buying power when forex trading. AtTradingForex.com, we offer up to 1:200 leverage, meaning you have up to 200 times more buying power than your margin. Leverage magnifies both gains and losses.

The standard unit size of a transaction is called a 'lot'. Typically, one standard lot is equal to 100,000 units of the base currency, 10,000 units if it is a mini-lot. TradingForex.com offers trades from micro lots and upwards in increments of 0.1 lots.

To go 'long' you are buying a currency. To go 'short' you are selling a currency.

A 'market order' is an instruction to immediately buy or sell an investment by a trader, at the best available current price.

A 'pending order '(either a 'Buy Limit', 'Buy Stop', 'Sell Limit' or 'Sell Stop') is a preset order you can place before the market has reached the price you would like to buy or sell at.

If, or when, your open position becomes profitable, a stop loss can automatically be set to protect your profit. This is called a 'trailing stop' and it can be very helpful when prices change suddenly in the same direction or when it is impossible to watch the market continuously for some reason.

  • Buy Limit - Buying lower than the current market price in anticipation of a price rise.
  • Sell Limit - Selling higher than the current market price in anticipation of a price fall.
  • Buy Stop - Buying higher than the current market price in anticipation of a price rise.
  • Sell Stop - Selling lower than the current market price in anticipation of a price fall.

About the TradingForex.Com Service

Yes. This is a forex trading strategy whereby traders place a large number of small trades in the belief that small moves in currency prices are easier to catch than large ones.

TradingForex.com is licensed and authorised by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission to provide our services. We are also holders of a MiFID passport for all EU countries to freely provide our services.

TradingForex.com is an STP (Straight Through Processing) Broker. Transactions are conducted electronically without the need for re-keying or manual intervention, subject to legal and regulatory restrictions. STP reduces operations errors as well as speeding up transaction handling.

TradingForex.com is an STP Broker, so there are no re-quotes. The clients' requests are executed at the price that is stated on the company's trading platform based on the market execution (STP) principle.

Certain types of orders (Stop Loss, Stop Limit, Take Profit, Buy Limit, Buy Stop, Sell Limit, and Sell Stop) restrict the maximum amount of losses and may turn out to be inefficient under certain trading conditions, where the market situation may make the execution of such orders impossible. Such a situation could arise due to high volatility of the market, where rapid price movement could cause the price to rise or fall, preventing an order from being executed at the stipulated price.

We offer competitive low spreads; however, please note that the spread may increase during a highly volatile market. Please click here for full specifications on our spreads.
