Yes. The interests of our clients is our primary objective and that is why with Xtrade your balance will not go into negative. Negative Balance Protection will prevent a trader from entering into debt. Unfortunately, not every retail forex broker offers negative balance protection. For the inexperienced trader, the lack of margin call can mean the difference between losing only your investment and going into debt. This is a subtle, yet crucial difference. In forex trading, you may be able to tolerate losing money you can afford to lose (after all, there’s no such thing as a perfect trader who wins all the time). However, going into debt is never acceptable, regardless of how much experience you have.

Cash bonus is added to your account's equity once the bonus terms are met. The bonus sum can be used for trade; however withdrawal of the bonus sum is dependent on completion of the required Xpoints release sum through trading volume.
Credit bonus is assigned to the account, but the sum will be added to the equity only upon reaching the full "release" Xpoints sum through trading volume. Once Credit bonus is "released", it turns into cash money that can be used for trade or withdrawal.

Leverage allows a large trade position to be initiated with a small margin deposit. The amount of leverage available to a trader varies, with magnification of up to 400:1
For example 100:1, meaning that currency trades worth $100,000 can be made with a margin deposit of $1,000. Leverage allows the use of credit to trade amounts larger than your deposit.
Remember, the higher the leverage the higher the risk of losing your deposited capital. Leverage can work both for you as well as against you.
While leverage enables you to control a large amount of capital with a small deposit margin, it can also expose you to outsized negative price movement.
You cannot change the default leverage ratio.
A pip is the smallest unit of change in a financial instrument's price ratio (rate of a currency pair).
The spread is the difference between Bid and Ask prices.
Long position - when the client is buying the asset and a short position when the client is selling the asset.
Amount of Base Currency * Pips = Value in Quote Currency
Value of 1 pip in EUR/USD= 1 Lot (100 000 €)*0.0001= 10 USD
Value of 1 pip in USD/CHF= 1 Lot (100 000$)*0.0001=10 CHF
Value of 1 pip in EUR/JPY=1 Lot (100 000 €)*0.01= 1000 JPY
Slippage may occur during periods of high market volatility, usually caused by important economic news. It results in your position being executed at a different rate than that you specified; closed at the next available price.
The best way to manage your risk during volatile markets is to ensure your account is sufficiently margined at all times. Several precautionary measures are recommended:
✔ Monitor the status of your open positions.
✔ Specify a stop-loss to limit downside risk.
✔ Keep your account funded in excess of your required margin.
Limit orders are take-profit orders to buy or sell a set amount of a financial instrument at a specified price or better.
Please log in to your trading account, then click Account Options > Funds Management > Monetary History or Activity Report
Stop losses and take profits are both orders, which are placed in the market to close an open position. "Stop Loss" is to prevent further adverse price movement and “Take Profit” is to gain from advantageous price movement.
Xtrade will inform premium clients in case of margin calls. Your margin is monitored in real time, providing you with the benefit of knowing where you stand at all times. Margin calls can cause a closure of your opened positions in case your available margin deposit drops below margin requirements for that particular instrument.
Some instruments are traded based on underlying futures contracts. Those instruments have a specific expiry date at which all the open deals/limit orders are closed.
For those instruments which have expiration dates, you can simply click the Details tab associated with the instrument.

Keeping a position open after a specific hour (approximately 22:00GMT (21:00DST)), as shown in the Xtrade trading platform display screen "Details", subjects you to an Xtrade funding premium that is subtracted from your account. This premium covers the benefit/cost of the associated funding.
Trade settlement occurs two business days (T+2) after the trading day (opening/closure of a position). The day of settlement is also called the value day.
To see the Premium Sell and the Premium Buy Charges for each product please refer to our CFDs list.
Note: Trades that remain open on Wednesday at 22:00GMT (21:00DST) incur an additional 2 night's premiums (for a total of 3) because the original settlement day Friday (T+2) has now been pushed off to the next available business day (Monday). The same principal applies to overnight trades initiated 3 days before bank holidays.
