    Benefits of Trading Forex

    Trading forex trading offers these unique advantages compared to other financial instruments:

    • Trade a Global Marketplace

      Forex is the world’s most widely traded financial product – available 24 hours a day, five days a week – with more than 60 currency pairs to trade.

    • Enjoy 24 Hour Market Action

      Forex is a 24 hour marketplace on weekdays – open continuously from 5 p.m. ET Sunday to 5 p.m. ET on Friday – that allows you to trade full or part time as your schedule permits.

    • Get Unsurpassed Liquidity

      As the world’s largest market, cash forex offers excellent liquidity at all trading hours – which means you can trade large amounts of currency with little overall market impact.

    • Trade with Greater Leverage

      Cash forex allows you to leverage up to 50 times your account value on all major forex pairs, and up to 20 times on minor pairs. International accounts have access to up to 100:1 leverage. For example, with 50:1 leverage, you can control 100,000 units of the euro quoted at $1.3000, using only $2,600.*

    • Take Advantage of Breaking News

      The forex market also offer unique opportunities to use exchange rates to take advantage of breaking international events, economic news and interest rate differentials.

    • Trade Flexible Contract Sizes

      With flexible lot sizes you can test trading strategies while limiting your financial exposure, or just dial in the desired risk level that’s right for you.

    * It is critically important to remember that greater leverage works both ways – it can help build large profits quickly, but can also produce equally large losses just as quickly.


    The Non Deliverable Forward (NDF) markets have seen considerable growth in recent years particularly in the emerging Asian economies. Imposed FX restrictions have led private companies, investors and non domestic players to seek an alternative for their hedging and speculative needs.

    No exchange takes place of the two currencies principal sums. The only cash flow is the movement in the difference between the traded NDF rate and the fixing rate at expiry. The P&L is transferred on settlement in the convertible currency; generally in US dollars (multiple fixing mechanisms are available). Once a trade has been established the position can be closed or rolled at anytime or alternatively left to expire and be cash settled against the fix rate.
