ADDITIONAL TRADING RISKS


Slippage

Int FX intends to provide clients with the best pricing available and to get all orders executed at the requested rate. However, there may be times, due to an increase in volatility or volume; orders may be subject to slippage. The volatility in the market may create conditions where orders may become difficult to execute. The concept of slippage is not new to the Forex market. Clients when processing stop orders may incur slippage depending on market conditions.

Execution Delays

A delay in execution may occur for various reasons, such as technical issues with trader’s internet connection, Int FX server may not respond due to lack of signal strength from a wireless or dialup connection. In such events, a delay in execution cannot be avoided.

Hanging orders

During high volume transactions, hanging orders may occur. It means the order has already been executed and it is simply taking few extra moments to confirm. During periods of heavy trading volume, it is possible that a queue of orders will begin to form. Please remember that it is enough if you enter any order once. Multiple entries for the same order may slow or lock your system or inadvertently open unwanted positions.

Grayed out pricing

Int FX at any cost will not intentionally ‘grey out’ prices. However, this is a condition that occurs during the opening of markets, when liquidity decreases or during weekends or when the market makers that provide pricing are not actively making a market for particular currency pair(s).

Stop Loss

A Stop loss order is nothing but a limit order. The Stop Loss order executes a deal at a relative loss, as the rate is inferior to the current market spot rate. A Stop Loss order to decrease an existing exposure (usually happens during closing of a position) is commonly* executed at the rate defined by the investor, provided there is an identical market indication to the Stop Loss rate.
* Please be advice that the scenario of executing Stop Loss at the market rate, both in cases of exposure increasing and decreasing, are more likely to happen on a daily basis to some currencies (e.g. TRY) or other instruments (e.g. commodities and indices) which are not traded 24 hours.

Rollover Costs

This term refers to the interest either charged or applied to a trader’s account for positions held “overnight” or every 48 hours (depending on the account type), meaning after Midnight (GMT) on Int FX’s Trading Station. It is important to note that the accumulative “overnight” rollover charges may be higher than the forward outright. When all positions are hedged in an account, although the overall net position may be flat, the account can still sustain losses due to the spread that occurs at the time rollover occurs.

Errors in Rates

Online trading technology is not perfect and, in rare cases, this feed can be disrupted. This may only last for a moment, but when it does, spreads often become affected. During these rare occasions, we advise you to avoid placing At Best orders. While it may be tempting to place an “arbitrage transaction”, keep in mind that the prices are not real and your actual fill may be many pips away from the displayed price. Keep in mind these instances are usually rare, and by placing Market Range orders or not trading during these moments, traders can avoid the risk associated with the above scenarios.

Trading Desk Hours

Weekly activity begins on Sunday at 20:30 hrs. GMT continuously until Friday, 21:00 hrs. GMT. Market activity hours may vary periodically due to public holidays, seasonal time adjustments, and unusual liquidity conditions arises from exceptional global events. The open or close times may also be altered by the Trading Desk because it relies on prices being offered by financial institutions that provide liquidity for Int FX. Outside of these hours, most of the major world banks and financial centers are closed. The lack of liquidity and volume during the weekend impedes execution and price delivery.

Gapping

Sunday’s opening prices may or may not be the same as Friday’s closing prices. At times, the prices on the Sunday open are near where the prices were on the Friday close. At other times, there may be a significant difference between Friday’s close and Sunday’s open. The market may gap if there is a significant news announcement or an economic event changing how the market views the value of a currency. Traders holding positions or orders over the weekend should be fully comfortable with the potential of the market to gap.

Scalping

Scalping is a term used to denote the "skimming" of small profits on a regular basis, by going in and out of positions several times per day. Scalping is not unlike day trading in which a trader will open a position and then close it again during the current trading session. Forex scalping system can be either manual or automated. IntFx does not allow scalping, Arbitrage and Malfunctioning systems.
If trader close the trades either BUY or SELL before 5mins will be considered as scalping trades.

Weekend Risk

Traders who fear that the markets may be extremely volatile over the weekend, that gapping may occur, or that the potential for weekend risk is not appropriate for their trading style, may simply close out orders and positions ahead of the weekend.
