Market Liquidity and Volatility
The forex market is the largest and most liquid of the financial markets. Daily activity often exceeds $4 trillion USD a day, with over $1.5 trillion of that conducted in the form of spot trading.
Forex spot trades consist of a contract to trade a given amount of a currency pair with a market-maker, at the advertised buy / sell price (the spot rate).
It is the existence of volatility within the forex market that enables trader's to take advantage of exchange rate fluctuations for speculative purposes. Traders must be aware that greater volatility also means greater risk potential.
Risks of Forex Trading
The increased amount of leverage means that traders can lose all, or a large portion, of their trading capital if the market makes a significant move against the trader’s current open position(s). Therefore, margin FX is a high risk product and may not be suitable for all investors as traders can lose more than their initial investment amount.
Most OTC forex brokers offer margin-based trading accounts.
Margin-based accounts differ from credit-based accounts in that when trading in a margin account, you must first open an account with your broker, and then fund the account by depositing money into the account.
Once you have funded a margin account with your broker, you can engage in any trading activity you wish so long as you have sufficient margin remaining in your account.
Leverage makes it possible for you to trade larger positions than would otherwise be possible based on your actual account balance. This means that leverage can provide greater potential for returns.The downside of course is that there is also greater potential to lose money and you can incur significant losses in your account very quickly.
Margin Call (Stop-out)
Stop out occurs when your equity drops to or below 100% of your used margin. At that point, the system will start closing your trades one by one, starting from the most losing one, in order to decrease the used margin, and by doing so, increase the margin level, attempting to push it above 100%.
The calculation formula is this:
Margin trading does not guarantee no loss to your margin principal deposited with us. Because of the risks listed below, you may suffer losses less than or more than your margin principal.
