  • Contract Expirations

    Every CFD that is based on Future contract has an expiration date.

    Our traders are able to close their CFD positions until that date, but any position still open at that time will be closed by FXORO at the last available price and any existing pending orders placed on that instrument is automatically removed.

  • Orders and Executions

    MARKET ORDERS

    A Market Order allows the trader enter the market immediately but in the case the market becomes very volatile, there is no guarantee that the order will be executed. FXORO re-quotes orders if they have not been filled, therefore in the case the order has not been filled at the required price, the order will be re-quoted. 

     

    LIMIT ORDERS

    A Limit Order allows the trader to enter the market at some time in the future and is filled at the price requested or might even be better in some occasions than the one requested.

     

    STOP ORDERS

    Stop Orders guarantee execution, but not a particular price. Due to volatility, a stop order might get filled at a different price than the one requested and this is referred to as slippage.

     

    SLIPPAGE

    Slippage is usually seen during periods of extremely high volatility and generally occurs during key news releases or during off market hours and occurs both in the different markets. It may be impossible to execute an order at the requested price. In this event, FXORO has the right to execute the Stop Loss Order at the first available price (“Slippage”) based on the nearest possible price. This does no affect the "Negative Balance Protection" policy therefore ensuring the trader never to owe more than what has been invested.

  • Negative Balance Protection

    This is a legally binding policy which guarantees that our customers’ accounts could not go into minus, so traders will never lose more than they’ve invested, even in cases of extraordinary volatility.

     

    FXORO developed a cutting edge technology allowing their traders to get to an exposure coverage down to 0 and therefore be able to trade till they have enough equity in their account. If for any reason the customer is exposed to more than what he invested, FXORO should bear the loss from the execution done in the market to the Zero Value Margin level.

     

  • Inactive accounts

    After three (3) consecutive months of non-use ("Inactivity Period"), an inactivity fee will be deducted from the Client’s trading account. This fee is 15$ or its equivalent according to client relevant currency based account. Fee should be taken from clients without open positions which didn’t trade for 3 months. (3 months from the time they closed their last position).

    The fee will be discontinued the moment the account is no longer deemed inactive, following new trade order for example. The fee will be deducted from inactive accounts in 4 dates during the year: 1/01, 1/04, 1/07 & 1/10. The deductions will be executed until the account balance is zero. There will be no charge if the free balance is zero. Accounts with a zero free balance may also be closed.

  • Withdrawal policy

    FXORO is proud to be one of the only brokers allowing their traders to withdraw their funds instantly from their account by having these removed from their trading equity. In the case that positions are still opened, the funds entitled to be withdrawn can reach up to 75% of the free margin.

     

    The funds are then processed quite rapidly by the back office team and transferred to the trader after verification.

     

    Funds that have been deposited by credit card are first returned entirely to the same credit card while any amount that surpasses the amount invested will be wired by wire transfer.

     

    In the case that the withdrawal is done by a bank wire transfer, the amount withdrawn is subject to a $20 fee.

      

  • Earning Calendar

    Margin requirements for shares with an upcoming company earnings report, may be increased 3 business days prior to the corporate event and may remain in effect after the corporate event at FXORO’s sole discretion. For the duration of the affected period, the Company reserves the right to change the margin requirements for all existing and new trades. In order to familiarize yourself with the new margin requirements, please refer to the table below.

    FXORO clients remain fully responsible for monitoring both the required margin of their account(s) and free margin prior, during and after the affected period. Consequently, FXORO clients understand and accept that this may result in their account(s) incurring a margin call and/or stop out. Note: The expected release dates of corporate events, such as company earnings reports, are subject to change without notice. Times/dates on the Earnings Calendar refer to GMT+2, unless indicated otherwise.
