Leverage is the possibility to trade in international financial markets with an amount up to 500 times more than your own funds. This means that with $5000 in account, you can place orders up to $ 2 500 000. At the same time, despite the use of borrowed capital, in case of a losing trade, you can not lose more money than you deposited. This is followed in our company by the dealer. What is the attractiveness of using leverage? Here is a simple example: You have $ 5000 on your account. You use a leverage of 1: 100 (max 1: 500) and buy 500,000 units of the USD / JPY pair. Option 1. The rate of USD / JPY during the day increased by 1%, and you get a profit of $ 5000, that is, double your deposit. Option 2. The rate of USD / JPY fell by 1% per day, and you get a loss of $ 5000, that is, you lose your deposit. Conclusion: leverage is huge financial power! Using leverage, you can quickly increase your capital, or you can lose it.

Why wasn’t my pending order executed to buy EUR / USD at 1.41200, because the minimum price on the chart fell to 1.41190?

The thing is that on the chart in the trading platform, you see the selling price (Bid), and the buy order is executed at the buying price (Ask), which is greater than the selling price by the spread amount. Given that the average spread on EUR / USD is 1.3 points, your order will be executed when the chart reaches the mark of 1.41187.
In order to set the Ask price line on the chart, you should:
- select "Charts", then "Properties" in the main menu of the trading terminal;
- select the "General" tab and check box "Show Ask line" in the window that opens.

CFD

Why is it profitable to trade CFD with AMarkets?

1. Absence of swaps.
2. More than 200 different contracts for differences: indices, bonds, metals, commodities, stocks, cryptocurrencies, investment portfolios in MetaTrader 4.
3. Low commission and expiration of futures contracts without forcible closing of positions.

What is the basis for CFD?

For the CFD for indices offered by AMarkets, the basis is the corresponding stock indices, for commodity CFD - futures for the relevant commodities: oil, gas, metals, cotton, etc.; for cryptocurrency CFDs - the corresponding cryptocurrencies; for CFDs for shares - stock exchanges.

How is profit on a trade calculated?

You have to subtract the opening price from the closing price of the position, multiply by the number of lots and the size of the contract and take away the commission. For example, by purchasing 3 lots of Brent (UKOIL) oil at 122.50 and selling at 124.00, profit you will receive: (124.00 (closing price) - 122.50 (opening price) x 3 (lot) x 1000 (contract size) - $ 30 (commission) = $ 4,470.
In order to calculate the profit on a trade with Bitcoin (BTCUSD), you have to subtract the opening price from the closing price of the transaction, then multiply by the number of lots and the size of the contract and take away the commission. For example, if you bought 0.5 lot of Bitcoin at $ 7000 and sold $ 9350 with a commission of 1%, then the profit will be: ($ 9350 (closing price) - $ 7000 (closing price)) x 0.5 (lot) x 1 (size of the contract) - $ 35 (commission) = $ 1140.

How is the margin for a specific position in CFD calculated?

You have to multiply the volume of this position by the size of the contract, multiply the resulting value by the current market price, then multiply by the percentage of margin. For example, if you sell 1 lot of TNOTE at 126.91, the margin will be: (1 (lot) x 1000 (contract size) x 126.91 (asset price)) x 1% (margin deposit) = 1269.10 US dollars.

Do CFDs have expiration dates and if so, what are they?

The expiration date of the CFDs for commodities, indices, bonds, coincides with the expiry date of the relevant futures. For example, a contract for Brent crude oil for delivery in April 2018 expires on 9 March 2018. Expiration time is 00:00 EET. However, AMarkets uses "glued" futures, that is, customers’ trades do not close automatically on the day of expiration of the underlying futures, which allows to successfully hold long -term trades.

In which currency is this or other CFD expressed?

CFD is expressed in the currency of the country whose index is the basis for this contract. For example, the CFD on AUS200 is expressed in Australian dollars. Profits or losses, as well as margin, are automatically converted into the deposit currency (US dollars) at the current exchange rate.

Why is a commission charged for trades with CFD?

The broker's income from operations with CFD is formed either at the expense of the commission, or by expanding the spread. AMarkets uses the first option, giving its clients the opportunity to trade with the narrowest spreads that a market maker has.

Glued futures, what's the difference?

AMarkets uses glued CFDs for futures. The main feature of the glued futures is that it goes without specifying a month, as a result, after each expiration, when the liquidity period ends, renaming the contract and switching to trading with a new futures contract does not occur, which is very convenient for trading and analysing quotes. We ask you to take this feature into account, since the quoted prices of futures may differ from the quotes of futures contracts in certain periods.

How are dividends paid on CFD Equities?

The amount of dividends is indicated in USD per share. If there is an open Buy position on the date of fixing record (Ex-dividend Date), the amount of the amendment is charged to the trading account. If there is a Sell position on the date of fixing record (Ex-dividend Date), the amount of the amendment is debited from the trading account.

4. Send an email to AMarkets - support@markets.com and to your personal manager, requesting to transfer trading account. In the subject, indicate: “Request for Transfer of Orders”. In the body, you should include the following information: “I, (Name, Surname), AMarkets wallet number, request for restoration of my open orders to the trading account (state the number of your AMarkets trading account). I provide here the details from other company (username and investor password to the trading account, IP-address of broker’s server, and the numbers of markets orders to be restored). I hereby, (indicate full name), also confirm that all conditions for the restoration of open orders have been explained to me fully; and I understand and fully accept all conditions for the restoration of open orders in AMarkets.”

If I closed a position at my broker, could I still use the service of reopening of orders in AMarkets?

Yes. This service is applicable even in the absence of open positions.

Can pending orders be transferred too?

Transferring orders to Company only includes those market orders which Client opened earlier while existing Sell Limit, Sell Stop, Buy Limit, and Buy Stop, as well as Stop Loss and Take Profit on open orders cannot be transferred, and the Client sets them himself.

By how much should I fund account? Why can it be less / more funds in the account of another broker?

The account should be funded no less 500 USD as per agreement of this service. At the same time, the amount should be equal to or more than the required for maintaining the margin requirement on reopened positions.
For example, at another broker, your balance is $ 10 000, unrealized losses $2 000, and funds, $ 8 000. At the same time, there is an open position of 10 lots for USDJPY, with 1:500 leverage, and margin requirement of $ 2000. In this case, to reopen this position, you only have to fund your AMarkets account no less than $2 000 for its maintenance.
After funding this amount, your balance will be $ 4 000 ($2000 - your equity, and $ 2 000 is the balance correction on loss amount with consideration of current market prices at the time of reopening position), and equity remains unchanged, $2000, but later it will change depending on the result of the current position.
In this case, it is worth noting that free margin is: 4000 (balance) minus 2000 ( margin) - 2000 (floating losses) = $ 0, accordingly, the amount of your deposit and current loss to the amount of the margin for the current open position is 100% ( Stop Out level in AMarkets is 20%) therefore, we recommend funding account for a larger amount to decrease trading risks.

How many days will it take to review the request for transfer of orders?

From the time that the request is received in the Company, it will be reviewed within 2 working days, but the Company will strive to process such a request as fast as possible. In some cases, the duration of review may be lengthened.

What should I do, if the trading conditions in AMarkets and another broker are not in alignment with each other?

The request for transfer of orders is processed only in cases where account conditions at another broker are close enough to account conditions in AMarkets ( at least, the set of instruments for transfer should be available in AMarkets).

Can orders be transferred if the account at another broker is in a different currency?

Yes, they can. Reopening orders will only be done on accounts with USD as the base currency.
