Frequently asked questions
What is forex & how do I trade FX pairs?
Forex (‘foreign exchange’ or ‘fx’) describes trading currencies in pairs, like EURUSD, on a decentralised over-the-counter global market. Each currency has an official abbreviation - in this case, EUR means ‘Euro’ & 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 & ask price.
What forex pairs can I trade?
We offer over 60 major, minor & exotic fx pairs - including EURUSD spreads from 0.0 pips with 1:400 leverage on Premiere accounts.
What’s the main difference between CFDs and forex?
CFD (or ‘contracts for difference’) trading involves different types of contracts covering a diverse set of financial instruments such as indices & commodities - whereas forex refers to pure currency pair trading.
Another way of looking at it is that forex is mostly driven by global events & 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 to seek independent advice and to keep a close eye on all your open trades.
Is trading only for professional traders?
Anyone from any background can trade online – all that’s required is sufficient funds for opening an account and a verified bank account. We support all levels of traders with tiered accounts, dedicated managers, multilingual customer support and competitive pricing - Standard accounts start with deposits from $500.
Although we provide customer support 24/5, Equiti is an execution-only broker and does not provide any advisory management or investment advice. We encourage all levels of traders to seek professional advice and utilise risk management.
What is a ‘stop loss’ order & why should I use it?
Arguably the most popular tool for reducing risk, stop loss orders are designed to limit loss on a security position that’s made an unfavourable move. When you place a stop loss order with a broker, you’re requesting to close the position once the instrument reaches a certain price. This is helpful as it means your trades need less monitoring and can help to limit losses, particularly in volatile markets.
Please also note that a stop loss is by no means a guarantee, positions may be affected by price gaps over market closures, data release or other economic factors.
