    Conducting transactions



    In the sector titled "Market Survey" you will find an overview of all trading instruments available for trade. By double clicking on an instrument, you can open a new window with options to Buy and Sell. The current market price Bid and Ask is also displayed in this window.
  • 4. Where do I see my open transactions?
    All your open transactions are visible at the lower end of your terminal. Every transaction has its own unique serial number, opening time, type of transaction (Buy or Sell), size of transaction, symbol, opening price, S/L, T/P, current price, swap and profit.



    Order – unique serial number of the transaction
    Time – time of the transaction
    Type of transaction – Buy or Sell of the financial instrument
    Symbol – financial instrument
    Price (1) – opening price of the transaction
    S/L – Stop Loss (the price level, at which the transaction is closed, hedging)
    T/P – Take Profit (the price level, at which the transaction is closed, profit fixation)
    Price (2) – current market price
    Swap – the fee for transfering the position to the next trading day. The fee is based on the difference between the interest rates of the currency pair and is added to or taken from the trader's account if the transaction remains open overnight.
    Profit – current profit/loss (not fixed)

    All open positions are also reflected in the trader's cabinet.
  • 5. What is leverage?
    Leverage – the ratio between the collateral of the transaction and the financial resources used for the transaction (1:100, 1:200, 1:500). A leverage of 1:100 means that in order to open a 100 000 USD transaction, one needs to own 100 times less resources at the broker than the actual volume of the transaction dictates.

    If you buy 1 lot USDCHF, then at a leverage of 1:100 the collateral needs to be 1000 USD, at 1:200 it needs to be 500 USD and at 1:500 it needs to be 200 USD, but the pip value doesn't change.
  • 6. How to calculate the size of the collateral?
    Direct currency pairs (EUR/USD, AUD/USD, GBP/USD). Since the volume of the transaction is displayed in the base currency, one must multiply it by the opening exchange rate, in order to find out what the volume is in dollars.

    Opening price of the transaction (EUR/USD buy) – 1.3490.
    At a leverage of 1:100 or 1:200
    1lot * 100 000EUR /100 = 1000 EUR,
    1000 * 1.3490 = 1349 USD1lot * 100 000EUR /200 = 500 EUR,
    500 * 1.3490 = 674.5 USD

    To calculate the collateral at a different volume of transaction, 1 lot has to be replaced in the formula by the necessary size of transaction.
  • 7. Formulae for calculating collateral and profit
    Collateral formula: volume * size of transaction / leverage
    Profit formula: (closing price – opening price) * size of transaction * volume

    Volume – number of lots (0.01 minimum)
    Size of transaction – equal to 100 000 base currency for all currencies
    Closing price – selling price
    Opening price – buying price
    Leverage – multiplier of personal resources (1:50, 1:100, 1:200)
  • 8. How to calculate pip value?
    Direct pairs (EUR/USD, AUD/USD, GBP/USD, NZD/USD). Pip value – 10 USD for 1.0 lot. 100 000 * 0.0001*1 lot = 10 USD100 000 * 0.0001*0.1 lot = 1USD

    Cross pairs (all currency pairs starting with USD: USD/JPY, USD/CHF, USD/DKK etc.)

    In order to convert to dollars, one needs to divide by the exchange rate at which the transaction was closed. This means that if a sell was made, the ASK rate must be used, but if a buy was made, then the BID rate.

    USD/CHF 100 000*0.0001*1 lot = 10 CHF. 10CHF/1.0225 = 9.78USD.

    USD/JPY 100 000*0.01*1 lot = 1000 JPY. 1000JPY/88.46 = 11.3USD
  • 9. What is short/long?
    "Long" position – the buying position of the financial instrument. If the trader is hoping that the price will go up in the future, then he/she is planning to sell the instrument he/she has bought at a higher price and make a profit from the difference. "Short" – selling a currency or some other financial instrument, hoping that its price will begin to fall. The opposite transaction to "long".
  • 10. The terminal isn't displaying all currency pairs
    When you open a new trading terminal, it will have default settings. If your terminal is only displaying some of the currency pairs, right click on the financial instruments window and choose "Show All". That should renew the list of trading instruments.

  • 11. Does this company have any restrictions on trading?
    We have no restrictions on trading. We allow scalping (holding positions for a couple of seconds) and also trading robots. There are no restrictions on taking out profits either.
