New Trading Conditions

We believe that our clients deserve nothing but the best and provide them with every tool needed to potentially succeed in the financial market. Find out more about our trading terms and conditions, services and variety of innovative features.

    • General Trading Conditions

    • Product Details

      iFOREX offers highly competitive conditions for the following financial instruments (“Financial Instruments” or “Instruments”) (i) leveraged margin trading of financial instruments /underlying assets (“Underlying Assets”) including Currency pair (Forex), Commodity, Index, Share, ETF and Crypto based CFDs (“Leveraged Instruments” or “CFDs”), and (ii) non-leveraged trading of stock derivatives (“Stock Derivatives” or “Derivatives”).

      Spreads
      The Spread is the cost of trading – it is the difference between the Sell (Bid) price and the Buy (Ask) price. For example, if the USD/JPY is trading at a sell price of 101.202 and a buy price of 101.222, the difference between these two prices is called the spread. In this case the spread is 2 pips.

      Margin and Leverage
      When trading Leveraged Instruments, while the "Margin" acts as collateral to cover any losses that you might incur, it also allows you to hold a position much larger than your actual account value, giving you the possibility to generate large profits relative to the amount invested.

      Leverage is a double-edged sword and can dramatically amplify your profits, however it can also just as easily amplify your losses. When you use excessive leverage, losing trades can quickly offset many winning trades. Leveraged trading carries a high degree of risk and may not be suitable for all investors.

      As an iFOREX account holder, you’re entitled to our Negative Balance Protection program, which means that you can never lose more than you deposited; nonetheless, a small market movement can result in a substantial loss of funds. Our Trading Platform automatically calculates your margin requirements before executing any order, and checks the level of available funds before any request to withdraw funds is made.

      The margin requirements are relevant upon increasing Exposure in the account, either by opening/closing deals or by requesting to withdraw funds while having open positions in the account. The margin requirements reflect the potential risk in positions, based on volatility, liquidity and pricing availability, in any given asset. This is why margins increase during and around trading breaks.

    • Trading Hours

      During the European and North American winter, the weekly activity begins on Sunday at 22:05 GMT continuously until Friday, 21:00 GMT. During the Day Light Saving times in these regions, the weekly market activity begins on Sunday at 21:05 GMT and ends on Friday at 20:00. Market activity hours may vary due to public holidays or due to unusual liquidity conditions which may arise from exceptional global events. Opening or Closing times may also be altered by iFOREX due to liquidity and risk management considerations.

      Although most of the instruments are traded on a 24 hour basis without interruption, some instruments, however, have special trading hours as seen in the table below (information related to Shares will apply to Stock Derivatives):

    • Orders and Execution

      Order Types

      MARKET ORDERS  
      Open Deal An order to open a position at the current available market rate
      Close Deal An order to close a position at the current available market rate

       

      LIMIT ORDERS  
      Stop Loss The Stop Loss is an order to open or close a deal at a rate inferior to the current market rate
      Take Profit The Take Profit is an order to open or close a deal at a rate superior to the current market rate

       

      Market Orders
      Market Orders (trade requests, e.g. Open Deal, Close Deal) are executed at the price that is in effect on the Company’s Trading Platform (client side) at the exact time of execution, provided that such price is within a predetermined tolerance level from the underlying price updated in the Company’s servers, and irrespective as to whether the underlying price is above or below the price updated in the Trading Platform (What You See Is What You Get, or WYSIWYG). In the event that the price updated in the trading platform (client side) exceeds the above tolerance level, for example, due to movements in the underlying assets between the time a client placed an order and the time it is received and executed, high market volatility and communication latency, the Order will be executed at the price updated in the Company’s servers, which shall be different from the price updated in the Trading Platform (Market Price), on a symmetrical basis. In the event of a substantial difference between the price updated in the Trading Platform (client side) and the price updated in the Company’s servers, the Order shall be rejected. Please note that there is no provision nor ability for clients to short sell Stock Derivatives, i.e. to sell Stock Derivative units unless clients already own such Stock Derivative units in their Trading Account.

      Limit Orders
      Limit Orders (future orders) are executed at the market price updated at the Company’s servers which may be different than the price indicated in the Order (“Slippage”). Slippage may occur in the event where the price indicated in the order is not available in the servers, for example, due to high volatility and gaps in the market prices. In such event, the order will be executed at the first available price, irrespective of the direction of the slippage, either to the client’s favor or not, in a symmetrical and transparent manner (Symmetrical Slippage).

      Instruments that are not traded on a 24 hours basis (e.g. Stock Derivatives, Shares, Indices and ETFs CFDs), may experience a market gap on a daily basis and are therefore more susceptible to slippage. It is important to note that slippage does not affect the Negative Balance Protection and therefore the Client will never lose more than the amount invested (including any profit, if gained), even if a slippage occurs.

      Delays in Execution
      A delay in execution may occur for various reasons, such as technical issues with the Client’s internet, mobile or other communication connection to the iFOREX servers, which may result in “hanging orders”. A disturbance in the connection path can sometimes interrupt the signal and disable the platform causing delays in transmission of data between the trader’s platform and the iFOREX server. 

      Hanging Orders
      During periods of heavy trade volume or communication latency, hanging orders may occur, which means that a Limit Order has been placed, but it is simply taking a few moments for it to be confirmed/processed. During periods of heavy trading volumes or communication latency, it is possible that a queue of Limit Orders will form. That increase in incoming orders may sometimes create conditions where there is a delay in confirming/processing certain Limit Orders. In some cases, the position may in fact have been executed and the delay is simply in the client’s side display due to heavy internet traffic.

      Keep in mind that it is only necessary to enter any order once. Multiple entries for the same order may slow or lock your computer or inadvertently open unwanted positions.

    • Negative Balance Protection

      iFOREX's Negative Balance Protection policy guarantees that the client’s losses are limited to the funds invested in the client’s account. According to this policy, the client shall never have to face a debit balance due to trade losses when trading with iFOREX and client’s potential loss shall be limited to the funds deposited in the Client’s account and to the funds gained by the client, if any.

      To implement this policy, iFOREX developed an automated monitoring tool, automatically closing in real-time all positions once a client’s account reaches Margin Level Zero (i.e. "Exposure Coverage" = 0). iFOREX will automatically close all positions at the price then offered by iFOREX. In the event that a client’s balance falls below Margin Level Zero due to the difference between Margin Level Zero and the actual Margin Level below Zero which the system closed all positions at the price then offered by iFOREX, iFOREX shall bear the mentioned difference.

    • Bonus Terms and Conditions
       

      Introduction

      These Bonus Terms and Conditions are in regards to the Trading Bonus, Cashback Bonus and Trial Account Bonus offered by the Company (hereinafter called the ‘Bonus’), as detailed below, and is considered to be an integral part of the Company’s Terms and Conditions. All interpretation of terms included herein, are as interpreted in Company’s Terms and Conditions, which are available in Company’s website www.iforex.com.

       

      Conditions of Eligibility

      The Bonuses are available to Company’s clients who have satisfied the eligibility criteria of the relevant offer and passed all required registration procedures according to the Company’s requirements as amended from time to time at the sole discretion of the Company (the ‘Eligible Clients‘).

      The Company offers any Bonus at its absolute discretion, to any Client and/or country/region as it deems appropriate.

      The Company reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to decline registration of any user, including Eligible Clients, in the Bonus and/or revoke the offer of any bonus at its absolute discretion.

      Residents form restricted jurisdictions, including residents of the U.S.A, are not eligible for the Trading Bonus.

       

      Trading Bonus

      Trading Bonus is granted to Eligible Clients as a percentage of the amount of funds deposited in their trading account, as agreed and determined by the Company at Company’s absolute discretion and on a case to case basis.

      Trading bonus is designated for purposes of margin trading only, thus can only be used as extra margin (i.e. the Client will not be able to withdraw the Bonus granted) and shall not be allowed to be used for the purposes of trading in Stock Derivatives.

      The Trading Bonus it’s granted per each Eligible Client.


      Example

      Eligible Client agreed with the Company to receive 30% bonus on his deposit of $1,000. Eligible Client will receive extra Margin of $300 (i.e. 30% of his deposit) as Trading Bonus.

      This bonus will reflect on client’s account as follows:

      Balance Equity Margin
      Available
      Trading
      Bonus
      $1,000 $1,000 $1,300 $300

       

      Trading bonus will not be available for withdrawal at any time whatsoever. Any profit made by utilizing the Trading Bonus may be withdrawn by the Eligible Client subject to the Company’s withdrawal policy and applicable law. The withdrawable profits made out of the Trading Bonus will be visible under the section "Balance” of the client’s account. 

      Trading Bonus which was granted due to a certain deposit shall be cancelled upon the withdrawal of all or some of the deposit which credited the client with the Trading Bonus, or shall be canceled partially if the client requests to withdraw an amount that will lower his Equity on an amount which will be less than twice his Trading Bonus amount.


      Example

      Eligible Client agreed with the Company to receive 30% bonus on his deposit of $1,000. Eligible Client has the below Equity and Balance in his Account:

      Balance Equity Margin
      Available
      Trading
      Bonus
      $1,000 $1,000 $1,300 $300

      Scenario A

      Client has requested to withdraw the full amount of his deposit ($1,000). Trading bonus will be entirely removed. 

      This will reflect on the client’s account as follows:

      Balance Equity Margin
      Available
      Trading
      Bonus
      $0 $0 $0 $0

      Scenario B

      Client has requested to withdraw $800, therefore the client’s Equity shall became smaller than twice the Trading Bonus due to the Client’s withdrawal. Therefore the Trading Bonus will be reduced in the amount required for the Equity to be twice the Trading Bonus.

      This will reflect on the client’s account as follows:

      Balance Equity Margin
      Available
      Trading
      Bonus
      $200 $200 $300 $100

       

      All Trading Bonuses shall be cancelled if the account has remained inactive for 7 consecutive weeks.

       

      Cash Back

      The CashBack program credits Eligible Clients’ account with cash on a weekly basis according and subject to the volume achieved in that week and up to a certain amount as determined in advance by the Company (“Pending Bonus”). 

      The Pending Bonus amount may derive from a certain or a number of deposits, as a percentage of the value of the deposit, or determined at the Company’s sole discretion.


      Example

      An Eligible Client who deposited $1,000 was entitled to receive up to 40% of the value of his deposit as Cash Back for trading a volume of $20,000,000. Such client will receive $400 as Pending Bonus.

      This Pending Bonus will reflect on Client’s Account as follows:

      Balance Equity Margin
      Available
      Pending
      Bonus
      Volume
      traded
      Volume
      Required
      $1,000 $1,000 $1,000 $400 $0 $20,000,000

       

      Each week, the Realized CashBack which is calculated according to the client’s weekly volume shall be deducted from the Total CashBack amount (Pending Bonus) and credited to the client’s account according to the ratio between the client’s actual weekly volume (in USD) and the required volume, as indicated in the trading platform. It is clarified that the client is only entitled to the Realized CashBack and the Pending Bonus is realized only after client completes the required volume. The CashBack amount (“Realized CashBack”) is limited to the Pending Bonus allocated to the client. 

      The volume is calculated on an ‘in and out’ basis, which means that the opening of a $1 million (or at another currency equivalent) position and the closing of the same position, count as $2 million (or at another currency equivalent) totals towards the client’s volume requirement.


      Example

      Scenario A

      The Eligible Client in the previous example, was offered $100 Realized Cash Back for each $5,000,000 traded. After 1 week, he has achieved the $5,000,000 volume. Therefore $100 as Realized CashBack has been moved from Pending Bonus to Equity.

      This will reflect on the client’s account as follows:

      Balance Equity Margin
      Available
      Pending
      Bonus
      Volume
      traded
      Volume
      Required
      $1,100 $1,100 $1,100 $300 $5,000,000 $20,000,000

      Scenario B

      After 2 weeks from the deposit, the client has achieved $5,000,000 volume traded and made $300 of profits. Therefore another $100 as Realized CashBack has been moved from Pending Bonus to Equity.

      This will reflect on the client’s account as follows:

      Balance Equity Margin
      Available
      Pending
      Bonus
      Volume
      traded
      Volume
      Required
      $1,500 $1,500 $1,500 $200 $10,000,000 $20,000,000

       

      After being credited to the Equity, the Realized CashBack will be available for trading or can be withdrawn by the Client at any time. Any profit made by investing the Realized CashBack amount may as well be withdrawn from the Eligible Client.

      The CashBack promotion is time limited, and the Client receives Realized CashBack within the first 3 months from the day he was granted with the Pending Bonus. The client is Eligible for further CashBack, when he makes further deposits.


      Example

      The Eligible Client in the previous examples, decided to withdraw his $300 profits and the $200 Realized Cash Back amount received. Therefore he requested a withdrawal of $500 in total. The remaining $200 of Cash Back Bonus will remain as Pending Bonus in his account, therefore the client will still be able to keep on trading with $1,000 and has two and a half months left to convert the Pending Bonus into Realized CashBack.

      This will reflect on the Client’s account as follows:

      Balance Equity Margin
      Available
      Pending
      Bonus
      Volume
      traded
      $1,000 $1,000 $1,000 $200 $10,000,000

       

      All CashBacks are given in the account's currency. 

       

      Trial Account

      Users may be provided with a trial account that includes a Trading Bonus (as explained above) of US 25$ that can be used to trade the financial instruments offered in the Trial Account with a total exposure of up to US $3000.

      Trading shall be made according to the Company’s Trading Conditions and the Trading Platform’s End-User-License-Agreement which are available in Company’s website, www.iforex.com.

      The Trial Account shall expire and all pending transactions in the Trial Account shall be terminated within 3 days of the day of the first transaction made in the Trial Account (“Trial Period”). Any amount which exceeds US 25$ (“Profit”) may either be used as margin for the user’s trading account with the Company and/or for trading Stock Derivatives, subject to the user’s successful conclusion of the company’s registration process and a minimum deposit of US 100$, or may be withdrawn to a bank account under the user’s name. Please note that (i) withdrawals are subject to the Company’s withdrawal procedures and may further be subject to a transfer fee, and (ii) any Profit not withdrawn, or transferred to the trading account and used as margin for trading purposes and/or for trading Stock Derivatives no later than 14 days from the date of opening the first transaction on the Trial Account shall be revoked.

      Bonus is available only to clients registering with the Company’s platform for the first time and having satisfied the eligibility criteria as described above. One Bonus per household\IP Address.

       

      General Terms

      Any indication or suspicion, in the Company’s discretion, of any form of illegal, unfair and\or abusive trading methods or conducts (including but not limited to trading activity patterns that indicate an aim to benefit financially from the Trading Bonus without taking market risk and\or by opening, operating or managing more than one account per client) as well as any indication or suspicion of  fraud, manipulation or a breach of the Company’s agreements, policies and conditions with respect to the Bonus Scheme will nullify all bonuses previously credited to the account and to any related account. Under such circumstances, the Company shall have the right, in its sole discretion and without derogating from its rights under its agreements with the client and applicable law, to nullify and cancel all transactions carried and/or profits or losses garnered therein and to block all relevant accounts.

      Company reserves the right, as it in its sole discretion deems fit, to alter, amend, suspend, cancel or terminate any of the above mentioned Bonus, or any aspect of the above mentioned offer, at any time by giving to the Client proper notice, as per Company’s Client Agreement.

    • Additional Trading Rules

      Margin Call
      iFOREX does not proceed to a compulsory closing of clients’ positions as long as there is positive equity in the client’s account. This enables clients to use their equity to the full extend in order to support their open positions against price fluctuations.

      Margin Information
      The window displayed below provides detailed information related to the margin of an account:

      • Used Margin shows the amount of Equity in an account that is currently being used as Margin for your Open Deals. In the case where Used Margin is equal to or larger than the Equity, this indicates that the account's leverage is Maximized. During and around trading breaks, the Required Margin of some instruments (as detailed in the ‘Product Details table’) increases - and this affects the Available Margin, which might be dramatically reduced during the weekend as a result.
        Used Margin = Net Exposure in an Instrument  x  The Required Margin for that Instrument
      • Margin Available shows the amount of equity in an account that is not currently being used and is available for further increase of net exposure. In the case where Margin Available is zero, this indicates maximum leverage usage in the account.
        Margin Available = Equity – Used Margin
      • Margin Utilization shows the percentage of Equity that is being used as Margin for the currently Open Deals of the account. 100% Margin Utilization and above, indicates maximum leverage usage in the account.
        Margin Utilization % = (Used Margin/Equity) x 100
      • Exposure Coverage shows what percentage of the Net Exposure of an account is held in equity as collateral.
        Exposure Coverage = Equity/Net Exposure


      Maximum Exposure
      As a prudential measure aimed at better risk management and avoidance of excessive exposure to a single client, iFOREX has set a maximum net exposure limitation of up to 15 (fifteen) million US dollars per client. iFOREX had also set a maximum net exposure for per instrument. To view the maximum exposure per instrument click here. iFOREX has the right, at its sole discretion to cancel or change such a limitation at any given moment without any prior notice.

      Hedging
      Hedging is defined as the opening of two Transactions on the same instrument or underlying asset at different directions (one "buy" and the other "sell"), whether or not at the same time and whether or not for the same quantity. iFOREX considers hedging transactions for the purpose of calculating the minimum margin on a cumulative basis or on a "net" basis. Furthermore, iFOREX considers the closing of one of the hedged Transactions as the opening of a new Transaction which amount’s equals to the amount of the remaining Transaction.
       
      Netting of Transactions
      In the case where more than one deal needs to close simultaneously in an account, iFOREX will close all open positions as a bulk.
      The transaction number assigned on each closed position is set based on FIFO rules. This means that upon the closing of the positions, the first position opened will receive the lowest transaction number and the last position opened will receive the highest transaction number.
       
      Unauthorized Trading Practices
      iFOREX supports fair trading and does not allow practices which exercise abusive trading such as lag trading, price manipulation, time manipulation or any other practices which are illegal and/or are utilized to give the Client an unfair advantage. Examples for such forbidden practices can be, but not limited to, any of the following:
      • Scalping is a trading strategy that attempts to make many profits on small price changes. Traders who implement this strategy will place anywhere from 10 to a couple hundred trades in a single day in the belief that small moves in the price are easier to catch than large ones.
      • Automation (e.g. EAs) or algorithmic trading is the use of electronic platforms for entering trading orders with an algorithm which executes pre-programmed trading instructions whose variables may include timing, price, or quantity of the order, or in many cases initiating the order by a "robot", without human intervention.
      • API trading is an application programming interface refers to all trading that uses a software program to interact with other programs. The API acts as the middleman between the trader and the market, relaying orders and retrieving information as needed.
      • ‘Multiple accounts’ refers to the situation whereby one client sets up two or more accounts in order to disingenuously receive multiple account-related benefits from iFOREX.

      Errors in Rates
      Online trading technology is not perfect and in rare cases, the feed can be disrupted. This may only last for a moment, but when it does, prices can often become affected. While it may be tempting to place an "arbitrage transaction", keep in mind that in such situations, the prices do not reflect the true market price and your actual fill may be many pips away from the displayed price. In the event that trades are executed at prices not actually offered by iFOREX, iFOREX reserves the right to reverse such trades as they are not considered valid trades. Keep in mind that these instances are usually rare, and by not trading during these moments, traders can avoid the risk associated with the above scenarios.
       
      Maintenance Fee
      Clients’ accounts in which there have been no trading activity for a period of twelve (12) consecutive months will be charged with a quarterly maintenance fee of US$15 or the account’s entire Equity if the Equity is less than US$15. 

      If the client does not have any available funds in its account iFOREX will not charge maintenance fee.
       
      Conversion Fees
      Trading Financial Instruments on a currency base that is different to the currency of which clients’ trading accounts with the Company are based, may expose such clients to currency conversion fees.

       

      For more information about trading, see our Client Agreement.

    • Forex

    • Overnight Financing

      When trading leveraged Forex CFDs with iFOREX, your open deals are subject to Overnight Financing at the end of each trading day. This Overnight Financing may be subject to credit or debit, calculated on the basis of the relevant interest rates for the currencies in which the underlying instrument is traded, plus a mark-up. The mark-up for currency pairs starts at 0.75% and can be higher as well as differ between Long (Buy) and Short (Sell) positions. Please review the below table for the latest Overnight Financing levels.

      If the calculated Overnight Financing Percentage is positive, it means that an applicable amount will be added (credited) to your account balance. A negative Overnight Financing Percentage means that an applicable amount will be subtracted (debited) from your account balance.

      You can find the relevant Overnight Financing percentage, amounts and their related running times on both the Deal and Limit forms, under Tools, within the ‘Market Info’ tab. To calculate the Overnight Financing, which your account will be debited or credited with, simply multiply the Overnight Financing percentage with the size of your deal. The running time of the Overnight Financing process for each CFD is detailed in the deal form's ‘Instrument Info Tool’ under "Overnight Financing (GMT)". The calculated value and percentage of an instrument's Overnight Financing applies for 1 day. CFDs that are traded 5 days a week will be credited or debited with a value 3 times the displayed value during the last day of its underlying asset trading week, as it covers the entire weekend period. The Overnight Financing amount is quoted according to the currency of the CFD. However, should the quoted CFD’s currency differ from the account currency, it will be converted to the account’s currency.

      Formula

      Calculation of Overnight Financing Percentage when you Buy (Long Positions):

       

      Calculation of Overnight Financing Percentage when you Sell (Short Positions):

       

      To calculate the Overnight Financing Amount, simply multiply the percentage by the deal amount:

      Overnight Financing Amount = Deal Amount × Overnight Financing Percentage

       

      Examples

      Example I

      This example involves a situation whereby the Interbank Rate difference is HIGHER than the markup. In such cases, your account will be debited when you go Long and credited when you go Short:

      • Instrument = EUR/USD (Euro vs. US Dollar)
      • EUR (base currency) 3M mid interest rate (annualized) = -0.37% = -0.0037
      • USD (other currency) 3M mid interest rate (annualized) = 1.08% = 0.0108
      • Interbank Rates difference = 1.45% = 0.0145
      • Long Markup = 0.75% = 0.0075
      • Short Markup = 0.75% = 0.0075
      • Deal Amount value expressed in the other currency = 106,550 USD (100,000 EUR at Current Closing Rate of 1.0655)

       

      Overnight Financing Percentage when you Buy (Long Positions):

      Overnight Financing Amount = 106,550 × (-0.0000611) = -6.51 USD, meaning 6.51 USD charge per day

       

      Overnight Financing Percentage when you Sell (Short Positions):

      Overnight Financing Amount = 106,550 × 0.00001944 = 2.07 USD credit per day

       

      Example II

      This example involves a situation whereby the Interbank Rate difference is HIGHER than the markup and the Long and Short markups are different. In such cases, your account will be debited when you go Long and credited when you go Short:

      • Instrument = EUR/TRY (Euro vs. Turkish Lira)
      • EUR (base currency) 3M mid interest rate (annualized) = -0.37% = -0.0037
      • TRY (other currency) 3M mid interest rate (annualized) = 22.75% = 0.2275
      • Interbank Rates difference = 23.12% = 0.2312
      • Long Markup = 0.75% = 0.0075
      • Short Markup = 14.00% = 0.14
      • Deal Amount value expressed in the other currency = 620,000 TRY (100,000 EUR at Current Closing Rate of 6.2000)

       

      Overnight Financing Percentage when you Buy (Long Positions):

      Overnight Financing Amount = 620,000 × (-0.000663) = -411 TRY, meaning 411 TRY charge per day (≅80 USD)

       

      Overnight Financing Percentage when you Sell (Short Positions):

      Overnight Financing Amount = 620,000 × (0.000253) = 157 TRY, meaning 157 TRY credit per day (≅30 USD)

       

      Example III

      This example involves a situation whereby the Interbank Rate difference is LOWER than the negative markup. In such cases, your account will be debited when you go Short and credited when you go Long:

      • Instrument = USD/JPY (US Dollar vs. Japanese Yen)
      • USD (base currency) 3M mid interest rate (annualized) = 1.08% = 1.08
      • JPY (other currency) 3M mid interest rate (annualized) = -0.09% = -0.0009
      • Interbank Rates difference = -1.17% = -0.0117
      • Long Markup = 0.75% = 0.0075
      • Short Markup = 0.75% = 0.0075
      • Deal Amount value expressed in the other currency = 10,341,000 JPY (100,000 USD at Current Closing Rate of 103.41)

       

      Overnight Financing Percentage when you Buy (Long Positions):

      Overnight Financing Amount = 10,341,000 ×0.00001167=120.65 JPY credit per day (≅1.1 USD)

       

      Overnight Financing Percentage when you Sell (Short Positions):

      Overnight Financing Amount = 10,341,000 ×(-0.0000533)=-551.52 JPY, meaning 551.52 JPY charge per day (≅5.3 USD)


      * Overnight Financing settlements may take up to 15 minutes to process at the end of the trading day, following which your account will be credited or debited appropriately.
    • Index, Commodity and Crypto CFDs

    • Overnight Financing

      When trading leveraged Index and Commodity CFDs with iFOREX, your open deals are subject to Overnight Financing at the end of each trading day. This Overnight Financing may be subject to credit or debit, calculated on the basis of the relevant interest rates for the currencies in which the underlying instrument is traded, plus a mark-up. The mark-up for Indices and Commodities is 2.5% and for Cryptocurrencies it can be significantly higher due to Cryptocurrencies’ extreme market conditions. When opening a new deal, click on ‘Tools’, then open the ‘Instrument Info’ tab to view the most updated values.

      If the calculated Overnight Financing Percentage is positive, it means that an applicable amount will be added (credited) to your account balance. A negative Overnight Financing Percentage means that an applicable amount will be subtracted (debited) from your account balance.

      You can find the relevant Overnight Financing percentage, amounts and their related running times on both the Deal and Limit forms, under Tools, within the ‘Market Info’ tab. To calculate the Overnight Financing, which your account will be debited or credited with, simply multiply the Overnight Financing Percentage with the size of your deal. The running time of the Overnight Financing process for each CFD is detailed in the deal form's ‘Instrument Info Tool’ under "Overnight Financing (GMT)". The calculated value and percentage of an instrument's Overnight Financing applies for 1 day. CFDs that are traded 5 days a week will be credited or debited with a value 3 times the displayed value during the last day of its underlying asset trading week, as it covers the entire weekend period. The Overnight Financing amount is quoted according to the currency of the CFD. However, should the quoted CFD’s currency differ from the account currency, it will be converted to the account’s currency.

      Formula

      Calculation of Overnight Financing Percentage when you Buy (Long Positions):

       

      Calculation of Overnight Financing Percentage when you Sell (Short Positions):

       

      To calculate the Overnight Financing Amount, simply multiply the percentage by the deal amount:

      Overnight Financing Amount = Deal Amount × Overnight Financing Percentage

       

      Examples

      Example I

      This example involves a situation whereby the Interbank Rate is HIGHER than the markup. In such cases, your account will be debited when you go Long and credited when you go Short:

      • Instrument = Brazil Ibovespa
      • Brazilian Real (BRL) 3M interest rate (annualized) = 9.567% = 0.09567
      • Markup = 2.5% = 0.025
      • Deal Amount value expressed in currency = 127,380 BRL (2 Index contracts at Current Closing Rate of 63690 BRL per contract)

       

      Overnight Financing Percentage when you Buy (Long Positions):

      Overnight Financing Amount = 127,380 × (-0.0003351944) = -42.70 BRL, meaning a 42.70 BRL charge per day (≅13.58 USD)

       

      Overnight Financing Percentage when you Sell (Short Positions):

      Overnight Financing Amount = 127,380 × 0.00019630556 = 25 BRL credit per day (≅7.95 USD)

       

      Example II

      This example involves a situation whereby the Interbank Rate is LOWER than the markup. In such cases your account will be debited each night regardless of the direction of your position:

      • Instrument = Oil (Crude Light WTI)
      • US Dollar (USD) 3M interest rate (annualized) = 1.08% = 0.0108
      • Markup = 2.5% = 0.025
      • Deal Amount value expressed in currency = 53,250 USD (1,000 Oil barrels at Current Closing Rate of 53.25 USD per barrel)

       

      Overnight Financing Percentage when you Buy (Long Positions):

      Overnight Financing Amount = 53,250 × (-0.00009944) = -5.30 USD, meaning a 5.30 USD charge per day

       

      Overnight Financing Percentage when you Sell (Short Positions):

      Overnight Financing Amount = 53,250 × (-0.00003944) = -2.10 USD, meaning a 2.10 USD charge per day


      * Overnight Financing settlements may take up to 15 minutes to process at the end of the trading day, following which your account will be credited or debited appropriately.
    • Contracts' Rollover Dates

      Every CFD that is based on future contract (i.e. commodities and indices) has a rollover date.

      Upon reaching the relevant instrument’s rollover date, all open future contract CFD positions will be rolled-over to the next contract, so that the positions remain open with the new future contract.

      Upon effectuating such rollover, the Position’s open P/L (Profit / Loss) will express the price difference between the expired and new contract prices, as well as include a mark-up spread. All the associated Limit Orders levels shall be automatically adjusted according to the new future contract price.

      For example, if the last price of the WTI Oil February contract is $50.125 and the market price of the following contract (March) at that time is $50.805, then the price level of all the outstanding limit orders will be updated upwards by $0.68.

      The rollover dates of contracts depend on the instrument you are trading, and those set out below shall be the sole rollover dates applicable to iFOREX's CFD:

    • Stock Derivatives, Share and ETF CFDs

    • Overnight Financing

      When trading leveraged Share and ETF CFDs with iFOREX, your open deals are subject to Overnight Financing at the end of each trading day. This Overnight Financing may be subject to credit or debit, calculated on the basis of the relevant interest rates for the currencies in which the underlying instrument is traded, plus a mark-up. The mark-up for Shares and ETFs starts at 5% and can be higher as well as differ between Long (Buy) and Short (Sell) positions. Please review the below table for the latest Overnight Financing levels.

      If the calculated Overnight Financing Percentage is positive, it means that an applicable amount will be added (credited) to your account balance. A negative Overnight Financing Percentage means that an applicable amount will be subtracted (debited) from your account balance.

      You can find the relevant Overnight Financing percentage, amounts and their related running times on both the Deal and Limit forms, under Tools, within the ‘Market Info’ tab.

      Examples

      Example I

      This example involves a situation whereby the Interbank Rate is HIGHER than the markup. In such cases your account will be debited when you go Long and credited when you go Short:

      • Instrument = Gazprom (GAZP)
      • Russian Ruble (RUB) 3M interest rate (annualized) = 9.5% = 0.095
      • Markup = 5% = 0.05
      • Deal Amount value expressed in currency = 2,459,000 RUB (20,000 Shares at Current Closing Rate of 122.95 RUB per share)

       

      Overnight Financing Percentage when you Buy (Long Positions):

      Overnight Financing Amount = 2,459,000 × (-0.0004) = -983.60 RUB, meaning a 983.60 RUB charge per day (≅17.52 USD)

       

      Overnight Financing Percentage when you Sell (Short Positions):

      Overnight Financing Amount = 2,459,000 × 0.000125 = 307.38 RUB credit per day (≅5.48 USD)

       

      Example II

      This example involves a situation whereby the Interbank Rate is LOWER than the markup. In such cases, your account will be debited each night regardless of your position’s direction:

      • Instrument = Apple (AAPL)
      • US Dollar (USD) 3M interest rate (annualized) = 1.08% = 0.0108
      • Markup = 5% = 0.05
      • Deal Amount value expressed in currency = 70,600 USD (500 Shares at Current Closing Rate of 141.20 USD per share)

       

      Overnight Financing Percentage when you Buy (Long Positions):

      Overnight Financing Amount = 70,600 × (-0.000169)= -11.93 USD, meaning a 11.93 USD charge per day

       

      Overnight Financing Percentage when you Sell (Short Positions):

      Overnight Financing Amount = 70,600 × =-0.000109) = -7.70 USD, meaning a 7.70 USD charge per day


      * Overnight Financing settlements may take up to 15 minutes to process at the end of the trading day, following which your account will be credited or debited appropriately.
    • Dividends

      In the event of a distribution of cash dividends in relation to a share CFD or Stock Derivative, a dividend adjustment will be made to the Client’s Balance with respect to the underlying share CFD or Stock Derivative positions held by the Client at the end of the business day preceding the ex-dividend date. The dividend adjustment shall be calculated based on the size of the dividend, the size of the Client’s position and whether it is a buy or a sell transaction. In long positions the adjustment shall be credited to the Client’s Balance and in short positions the adjustment shall be debited from the Client’s Balance. Dividends shall be credited or debited from the Client’s Balance outside of the underlying shares' trading hours and before the opening of the shares' next trading day and are contingent upon the Client holding their respective position at the time of the dividend adjustment. During this period, in order to keep the fair value of the Client’s Equity until the opening of the next trading day, the Company shall adjust the Client’s position in accordance with the dividend amount debited or credited from the Client’s Balance. Due to the exclusion of short trading on Stock Derivatives, dividend adjustments resulting in debits to a Client’s Balance when trading Stock Derivatives will not apply.

      Example:
      Coca-Cola issues a dividend of 0.35 USD per share.
      The Ex-Dividend date is November 29th and the settlement date in iFOREX is November 28th at 22:05 GMT.
      The closing price before the settlement is 41.65.
      A client that holds a Long position (of a CFD and/or Stock Derivative) of 5,000 shares will be credited with 0.35 x 5,000 = 1,750 USD if his deal is open at the settlement date.
      If the client holds a Short position (not applicable to Stock Derivatives), similar amount will be deducted from the Balance of the trading account of such client.
      The share price will be adjusted, during the afterhours, from 41.65 to 41.30, which equals to the last share price minus the dividend amount.

    • Earnings Reports

      An earnings report is a periodic filing made by public companies to report their performance. By analyzing quarterly earnings reports, investors can gauge the financial health of the company. The announcement of earnings for a company, particularly for a popular company with a high market capitalization, can affect its share prices, which can cause it to fluctuate widely on days when such quarterly earnings reports are released.

      For that reason, maximum exposure and margin requirements of the relevant shares will be modified throughout the period of publication. The maximum exposure per share will be lowered to $50,000 and the margin requirement will double.
