The most common risk management tools in forex trading are the limit order and the stop loss order. A limit order places restriction on the maximum price to be paid or the minimum price to be received.
A stop loss order sets a particular position to be automatically liquidated at a predetermined price in order to limit potential losses should the market move against an investor’s position.
We currently offer selected Forex, Indices, Commodities and Cryptocurrency products.

Currency prices (exchange rates) are affected by a variety of economic and political conditions, most importantly interest rates, inflation and political stability.
Moreover, governments sometimes participate in the forex market to influence the value of their currencies, either by flooding the market with their domestic currency in an attempt to lower price, or conversely buying in order to raise the price. This is known as Central Bank intervention.
Any of these factors, as well as large market orders, can cause high volatility in currency prices. However, the size and volume of the forex market makes it impossible for any one entity to “drive” the market for any length of time.
Currency traders make decisions using both technical factors and economic fundamentals. Technical traders use charts, trend lines, support and resistance levels, and numerous patterns and mathematical analyses to identify trading opportunities, whereas fundamentalists predict price movements by interpreting a wide variety of economic information, including news, government-issued indicators and reports, and even rumour.
The most dramatic price movements, however, occur when unexpected events happen. The event can range from a Central Bank raising domestic interest rates to the outcome of a political election or even an act of war. Nonetheless, more often it is the expectation of an event that drives the market rather than the event itself.

Most FX pair trading hours are 24 hours per day during the week, with a two-minute break from 23:59 server time until 00:01 server time. On Friday trading ceases five minutes early at 23:55 server time, rather than 23:59, to prevent wide spreads as liquidity providers go offline at the end of the week.
Trading hours are subject to change due to seasonal and market factors. Platform time is the time that the MetaTrader 4 (MT4) charts and data is set in. All clients are set under the same platform time setting. Our MT4 is set to GMT+2.
