What happens to my open positions at the end of a trading day?
All open positions are automatically rolled or swapped over to the next business day. Traditionally, all spot trades in the FX market are performed for a period of two working days (when the delivery of the transaction takes place). Hence, in order to avoid the delivery of the trade, the positions are automatically closed for the original trade date and reopened for the next trade date.
In order to keep things simple and give maximum advantage to our clients, the open and close rates of the rollover are kept the same as the open position rate. A premium is then added or subtracted based on the difference in interest rate between the two currencies being traded.
What is the maximum trade size?
There is no maximum trade size, although large trades need to be authorized by the dealing room and may have different terms.
What are your margin requirements?
Top4FX clients can trade using a leverage of up to 200:1, depending on the asset they wish to trade and the trade size. Leverage of 200:1 means that a client is able to open a position which is up to 200 times the size of his or her deposit. For example, if a client has deposited $1,000 he or she will be able to open a trade up to $200,000 in value. A minimum 0.5% margin must be maintained at all times. To learn more about Top4FX trading conditions and margin requirements for assets, please visit our Forex Trading Conditions page and/or CFD Trading Conditions page
Does Top4FX use margin calls?
Absolutely, the WebTrader platform will trigger a margin call notification when your account equity level falls to 100% (or less) of the required margins by your open positions. If the equity of your account falls to 20% of the required margin then the platform will close all open positions. The service is not available in MT4
For example, a client opens a 200,000 USD/JPY position with Equity holding at $2,000. The Margin Requirement for such a position would be $1,000 (which stands for the Used Margin as well). If the client’s Equity falls to $1,000, the client will receive a Margin Call notification. If the client’s Equity continues falling and drops to $200, the position will be closed at market rate.
Is Forex / CFD trading risky?
It is worth keeping in mind that Foreign Currency & CFD trading carries a high degree of risk and may result in serious financial loss. Foreign Currency & CFD trading is not suitable for everyone. The high degree of leverage and volatility involved in Forex & CFD trading means that transactions can result in heavy losses as well as significant gains. We recommend that you trade with extreme caution and care. For help and guidance, make sure to take full advantage of all our services and highly trained support team. We also have a comprehensive library of educational resources available on our website. To help minimize potential losses, we also provide essential trading tools such as stop loss orders. However, such tools do not remove the significant element of risk that is involved in forex trading. To learn more about the risks involved with Forex & CFD trading, please visit the Risk Disclaimer page

Do I have trailing Stop and OCO options?
Yes. Our professional trading platform offers an extensive set of features and powerful tools to help assist both novice and professional traders.
What is Trailing Stop?
A Trailing Stop is a stop-loss order that automatically adjusts itself as the market rate moves in the direction of your open position. The trailing price literally trails behind rising prices, allowing you to capture more profits while ensuring that if prices suddenly drop you are still protected by the automatic Stop-Loss order.
Important Note for MetaTrader 4 Platform: Since Trailing Stop works on the client terminal side, unlike Stop Loss and Take Profit, that work on the server side, it won't work if the client terminal is closed.
If the client terminal is closed, only Stop Loss that was placed by Trailing Stop before the terminal was closed, can trigger.
What does OCO stands for?
OCO stands for One Cancels the Other and is a contingent order providing that one part of the order is cancelled if the other part is executed.
To learn more about our trading platform, please visit the Trading Platforms page.
Can I change the layout of Top4FX trading platform?
Yes. Once you have logged-in to Top4FX trading platform you can customize the platform’s layout according to your personal preferences. This enables you to organize windows, add charts and create new workspaces.
What is Forex?
In short, the Foreign Exchange market, also referred to as the "Forex" or "FX“ market, is the largest and most liquid financial market in the world, with a daily turnover volume of roughly 4 Trillion US Dollars. Forex trading is the buying and selling of one country’s currency against another.
To learn more about the Forex market, please refer to the Education page.
What is spread?
The spread is the difference between the bid price (selling price) and the ask price (buying price).
Example: If the quote for the EUR/USD pair is 1.2910 against 1.2913 then the spread is 3 pips.
What is a Pip?
Pip is an acronym for Price Interest Point. This represents the smallest value of measurement for forex currencies.
How does a Stop Loss order works?
Stop Loss orders are used to reduce risk by closing a losing trade once a market passes a trigger value pre-determined by the trader. Top4FX will do its best to fill your trade at the price requested. However, because the order will close your trade at the best available price once activated, the Stop Loss is exposed to a gapping market.
For the sake of absolute transparency, this means Top4FX cannot guarantee a Stop Loss.
When is the forex market open for trading?
The Forex market is open for trading 24 hours a day, five days a week. The market opens on Sunday evening at 22:00 GMT when Asian markets open, and concludes on Friday night when the New York markets close.
What is the rollover?
A rollover is when interest is paid or deducted from open positions. Trading currencies always involves two different currencies with their own individual interest rate. When you buy a currency that has a higher interest rate than the sold currency, you will be paid interest. However, when you buy a currency with a lower interest rate than the sold currency you will pay interest, and money will be deducted from your account. A rollover applies only to overnight trades.
