Losses can exceed deposits
The products we offer for trading forex are leveraged, meaning that you only need to put up a fraction of the total value of your position. Your profit or loss, however, is based on the full position so it’s possible to gain or lose a sum much larger than your initial outlay. While trading this way require careful risk management, many traders use leveraged products to magnify their exposure in the market at a cost much lower than that of owning the underlying asset.
Make efficient use of your capital with leveraged trading, and get exposure in the markets for only a small proportion of the notional price of your trades.
Leveraged forex trading can be risky. While you only need to put up a fraction of the capital compared to the actual size of the trade, your profits and losses are based on the trade’s notional value and can quickly exceed the size of your initial deposit. This makes it essential that you take steps to manage your risk.
Use our mobile apps to monitor your positions on the move and set alerts to trigger when the market meets certain price conditions.
Cap your losses and lock in profits by setting stops and limits. Put guaranteed stops on new positions to protect against slippage if the market ‘gaps’. You’ll pay a small premium for this extra protection, but only if it’s triggered.
