Frequently asked questions

What is forex trading and how does it work?

Forex or foreign exchange refers to the decentralised over-the-counter global marketplace where currencies are traded. With trillions of dollars exchanged daily, forex is the largest and most liquid financial market in the world.

Forex trading involves the buying and selling of currency pairs, like EURUSD, with the aim to make profit of fluctuating exchange rates between two currencies. There are numerous factors influencing forex prices; geopolitical events, economic indicators, central bank policies, and market sentiment.

Each currency has an official abbreviation - in this case, EUR means ‘Euro’ and USD means ‘United States Dollar’. When trading forex, your bid price or ‘base currency’ is shown first (here as EUR) and is followed by the ask price or ‘quote currency’ (here as USD). The values of these currencies change quickly which is reflected in the spread, i.e. the difference between bid and ask price.

Though local business hours dictate actual open and close hours, you can participate in the forex market 24 hours a day, five days a week, due to its decentralised nature.

We offer over 60 major, minor and exotic fx pairs - including EURUSD spreads from 0.0 pips with 1:400 leverage on Premier accounts.

CFD (or ‘contract for difference’) trading involves different types of contracts covering a diverse set of financial instruments such as indices and commodities - whereas forex refers to pure currency pair trading.

Another way of looking at it is that forex is mostly driven by global events and CFDs are mostly impacted by the supply/demand of the performance of underlying instruments. However, all instruments will be affected by multiple factors and can also be impacted by unprecedented events. There is no fixed guide to trading, so we always recommend seeking independent advice and keeping a close eye on all your open trades.

Anyone from any background can trade online – all that’s required is a verified bank account and sufficient funds for starting to place trades. We support all levels of traders with tiered accounts, dedicated managers, multilingual customer support and competitive pricing.

A rolling future is a contract that doesn’t expire, instead, at the date of the futures expiry (“rollover date”) - your positions are automatically rolled to the next contract month. Rolled over contracts result in an adjustment which will be added or subtracted to/from your cash balance (minus the spread).

This will appear on your statement as “{Symbol}futures rollover adjustment”.

Example:

Currently, EURUSDfuture is priced from the June futures contract.

The rollover date for EURUSDfuture is 14 June. On this day the contract price will roll from June to September (it’s a quarterly contract).

EOD prices on rollover date: EURUSD June futures = 1.11000

EURUSD September futures = 1.11720

At EOD (17h00 NY time) on 14 June the price of the EURUSDfuture will change from 1.11000 to 1.11720

Ahmed is long 10 lots of EURUSDfuture from 1.10500

Just before EOD on 14 June Ahmed’s position is showing a +$5,000 open profit (using the price of 1.11000 to mark to market).

At EOD (17h00 NY time) on 14 June the price of the EURUSDfuture will change from 1.11000 to 1.11720.

At EOD Ahmed’s position is showing a +$12,200 open profit (using the price of 1.11720 to mark to market). This is an additional +$7,200 of profit.

At the same time, Ahmed will have a “EURUSDfuture rollover adjustment” of -$7,200 - $200 (difference between 1.11000 and 1.11720 - the spread) = -$7,400 removed from his cash balance.
