Over-the-Counter Market (OTC)

Unlike exchange-traded securities, FX market is mostly traded on an over-the-counter or OTC basis. So what is an OTC market? An OTC market is not channelized via any centralized exchange. Investors trade into the OTC market buying and selling one currency against another (currency pairs) on prices quoted by market makers. Market makers are primarily banks and non-bank financial institutions. We provide direct market access to this liquidity pool as the counterparty to you.

Leverage Ratio/Margin Requirement

Leverage provides you the ability to trade a larger amount with smaller initial deposit. The leverage ratio is a directly function of margin requirement. For example if the leverage ratio for EUR/USD is 1:25, with a US$100 deposit, you can trade up to US$100 x 25 = US$2,500. The leverage ratio of 1:25 is equivalent to 4% (1/25 * 100%). Hence, to trade a notional amount of US$2,500 at 4% margin requirement, you need to put aside US$100 as margin amount to open this position. Leverage ratios or margin requirements differ for different currency pairs determined by us from time to time.

Margin Call

Margin call occurs when your account equity falls below 100% of your margin used. You will need to make an additional deposit to resolve the margin call. Alternatively, you can close out some or all of your open positions to reduce your margin used. When your account is in margin call status, you are unable to open new positions but you can close out existing open positions.

E.g. you have US$5,000 in your account opening balance and you bought 100,000 EUR/USD position at 1.0650 for 4% margin requirement, your margin used will be US$4,260 (4% X 100,000 EUR X 1.0650 = US$4,260). Assuming the price falls to 1.0550 (100 pips), the unrealized loss is US$1,055. The account equity is now US$3,945 which is less than 100% of the margin used (US$4,260), your account is in margin call status.


Stop Out Level

In the event the account equity drops below 30% of the margin used at any point in time regardless whether an official margin call notification is issued to you, the system will automatically close out all open positions in your portfolio to prevent further loss to your capital. Please be informed that the sell-out of all open positions is triggered by the system as market orders. You may lose more than your capital in some adverse market conditions.   



Swaps, often known as overnight interest or rollover interest, are interest payable or receivable for holding open positions overnight. You may pay or receive interest depending on the direction (buy or sell) and currency pair you rolled over to the next trading day at New York close. The interest amount is dependent of the notional amount you rolled over and the swap points quoted in pips.

Minimum Lot Size

The minimum allowable notional amount is 0.01 of a standard lot or 1,000. There is no maximum lot size limit but the fill is subject to liquidity availability. Price slippages are expected for large notional amount.


Trading Hours

The FX market opens for 24 hours a day, 5 days a week. However, our trading platform has a blackout period of 5 minutes after market opens and 5 minutes after market closes. The blackout period was introduced to isolate off-market prices as liquidity is thin during that period.
