Slippage: You are warned that Slippage may occur when trading in CFDs. This is the situation when at the time that an Order is presented for execution, the specific price showed to the Client may not be available; therefore the Order will be executed close to or a number of pips away from the Client’s requested price. So, Slippage is the difference between the expected price of an Order, and the price the Order is actually executed at. If the execution price is better than the price requested by the Client, this is referred to as positive slippage. If the executed price is worse than the price requested by the Client, this is referred to as negative slippage. Please be advised that Slippage is a normal element when trading in CFDs. Slippage more often occurs during periods of illiquidity or higher volatility (for example due to news announcements, economic events and market openings and other factors) making an Order at a specific price impossible to execute. In other words, your Orders may not be executed at declared prices.

Risk Warnings

Leverage risk: While trading leveraged products such as CFDs provide an opportunity to earn large profits, they also involve substantial risk of loss and may not be suitable for all investors. Through trading leveraged products, investors may incur losses that far exceed the fund amount deposited. While we take protective measures, such as lowing leverage values temporarily, to protect customers' deposits from drastic market fluctuations, utilizing higher the leverage value means that there is a higher the risk of loss of deposited funds, even from small fluctuations in the market prices.

The value of your investments can go down as well as up. Losses can exceed deposits on margin products. Complex products, including all types of investment assets and instruments, come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. You should consider whether you understand how all types of investment assets or any of our other products work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money or making money.

  • Required Margin = Notional Value / Leverage = 100,000 / 30 = 3,333.33 EUR
  • Metals (e.g. XAUUSD)
  • Notional Value = Volume * Contract Size * Open Price = 1 * 100 * 1,265.00 = 126,500 USD
  • Required Margin = Notional Value / Leverage = 126,500 / 20 = 6,325 USD
  • Indices (e.g. UK100)
  • Notional Value = Volume * Contract Size * Open Price = 1 * 10 * 7,480.0 = 74,800 GBP
  • Required Margin = Notional Value / Leverage = 74,800 / 5 = 14,960 GBP * 1.32281 (GBPUSD rate) = 19,789.24 USD
  • Commodities / Energy (e.g. Crude)
  • Notional Value = Volume * Contract Size * Open Price = 1 * 1,000 * 72.00 = 72,000 USD
