The Forex market is the largest and most traded financial market. Every time you have to travel and convert some cash into the currency of the country you are moving, you are part of a Forex trading experience. Forex traders and investors buy, sell and trade currency pairs to make profits out of the price changes or to protect their capital, so they sell what they have if they think the price would keep going down.

Forex Trading

Are you trading Forex for the first time?

Forex is the largest financial market, where trading occurs between market participants. Forex trading does not have an ‘open’ or ‘close’ time, except on weekends. Forex trading starts on Sunday 23:00 GMT until Friday 23:00 GMT. Enjoy trading major, minor, exotic currency pairs; opportunities present themselves to people who are prepared to receive them. Be aware of the latest news and events, make your analysis and use your knowledge to make as accurate decisions as possible.

Market participants have their goals for being in the market. Some are companies who are hedging currency presence in the market to protect their business; some are fundamental traders who observe factors that might affect the market state. Others are technical trades who focus their analysis in historical prices to find patterns and triggers which might serve in creating a certain idea about the direction of future price. There are central banks and financial institutions who bring different goals into the market. You need to remember one thing at least: you are able to make profits in both directions, when the prices go up and down also.

Spread

Spread is the difference between the buy and sell price. The spread is usually the broker’s fee and it is a reflection of liquidity. Here, at Ex 100, there are no hidden fees or commissions, except for the spread.

Pip

The changes in the price of the assets are given in pips. One pip is a change in the fourth decimal point. It is the fourth for any currency, and the second for JPY. You can find it differently by counting for left to right, the fifth digit.

Margin

Trading on margins allows you to trade with a bigger amount compared to what you fund your account in real. Leverage your trading capacities and per consequence profits and loss accordingly. A 2% margin means that you can open trades 50 times greater compared to the capital available in your account.

Lot

A lot is a unit in trading, at Ex 100, 1 lot is 100,000 of the base currency.

1 lot = 100'000 units of base currency
1 mini-lot = 10'000 units of base currency
1 micro-lot = 1'000 units of base currency

Why Forex?

Why Forex?

A 24-Hour Market for Five Days

Trading Forex is a continuous process, since all the time there is a market open somewhere in the world. Trading Forex starts in the first major market, Sydney, Australia on Sunday. The trading week ends when the last major market in New York, closes on Friday, 5pm.

High Liquidity

Liquidity is the ability of financial assets to easily convert into cash. In Forex, a liquid currency pair means that, large amount of money can be moved generally with small spreads. Usually the most liquid currency pairs are major ones, EUR/USD, USD/JPY, GBP/USD and more.

Low Transaction Costs

The cost of a Forex transaction is shown in the form of spread. The spread is usually taken by us, as a trading online service provider, for providing the service and facilitating the experience for you. We do not charge any additional fee or commission, despite the spread.

Flexible Leverage System

Ex 100 allows you to trade by choosing among different levels of leverages we provide. You will boost your trading power by investing 100, 200 up to 500 more capital than you are able to invest. Be aware that leverage is a two sided sword, use it smartly, because it grows your losses the same as it grows your profits.

Risk Management Tools

Tools

Stop Loss/Take Profit (SL/TP)

A stop loss (SL) is an asset price limit, defined by the trader. When the price is met, the position will automatically be closed, preventing further losses.

A take profit (TP) works the same, the position will automatically be closed when a profit target is reached, locking the profits.

Advantages of SL/TP

○ Prevent the trader to have large losses

○ Take profits by maximizing them at the most favorable price

○ Better risk management strategy

○ Set these two limits and go

How do you set SL/TP?

There are certain fields in the order section, where you can define the SL/TP: Price, Target and Percent. The meaning of each one stays like that:

○ Price: The asset price at which the functions will take actions

○ Target: The amount of profit or loss you are willing to have or afford to lose.

○ Percent: The percentage profit/loss target of the trade.

What orders can use SL/TP?

These two functions are supported by all order types available in Webtrader: Limit, Market, Stop and Trailing Stop.

Notice that TP is applied as a limit order and SL is executed as a market order.
