What is the difference between a Trade and a Position?

Trade- the buying and selling of a currency pair. (Multiple trades = a position)
Position- the aggregate value of all trades within a given currency pair.

How do I manage risk?

The most common risk management tool in Forex trading is the stop-loss order. A stop-loss order ensures a particular position is automatically closed at a pre-specified price in order to limit potential losses should the market move against an investor's position. The liquidity of the Forex market ensures that stop-loss orders can be easily executed.

What is the minimum & maximum trade size?

The minimum trade size is USD 3,000 . There is no maximum trade size.

What is the margin ratio?

Maximum 50:1, which means you take a position that is 50 times greater than your margin availability.

Do I have to trade on margin?

All trades are conducted on margin as to protect customers from losing more than the current value of their accounts.

How does IFT manage my position versus my margin limits?

BizFOREX IFT automatically checks margin requirements every time you issue a trade and every time there is a price movement in a currency pair. An Account Summary posting the Margin Used and Margin Available will be present on the trading screen at all times. When/if your margin availability declines to 50%, the system will liquidate your positions. It is important that your account is maintained or topped-up adequately before a market order is placed so as to avoid the system triggering.  This will protect you from losing more than your margin deposit.

What is a margin "call" as it relates to BizFOREX's IFT Platform?

BizFOREX's margin call occurs when a trader's available margin drops below 50%. At this threshold, IFT will automatically close the trader out of all open positions.

Where do the IFT rates come from?

BizFOREX uses advanced market making technologies that utilize proprietary forecasting and risk management engines to provide a real-time transparent market.

You can view multiple graphs simultaneously by clicking on the desired currency pair identifiers in the Current Rates Table.

Why is there a space on the graph between the chart lines?

The bottom line represents the bid prices, the top line represents the ask prices and the space between the lines represents the spread.
