As a rule, we do not support smart contract payments due to security reasons. However, retrieving the funds sent via smart contract will be charged with 1% transaction fee (minimum 10$). This is clearly stated on the SimpleFX website in the Ethereum deposit section. Other possible reasons are that the (1) network is busy or that (2) the gas limit for a transfer was set too low.

Conditions sur le Forex

1. En quoi consiste un ordre take profit ?

Le Take profit est un ordre de clôture d'une position ouverte à un prix favorable pour le client par rapport au prix d'ouverture de l'ordre. Une fois le niveau take profit atteint, l'ordre sera clôturé.

2. Qu'est-ce qu'un appel de marge ?

Un appel de marge est une alerte qui signale au trader que l'équité de son compte est inférieure à 50% de la marge. Autrement dit, le solde du compte n'est plus suffisant pour faire face à la marge demandée et doit être alimenté afin d'éviter une clôture forcée. La plateforme de trading commencera à clôturer les positions au niveau Stop Out, qui correspond à 30% de la marge.

3. Qu'est-ce qu'un spread ?

Le spread est la différence entre le prix d'achat et le prix de vente. Le prix de vente est le prix auquel vous pouvez vendre une paire de devises et le prix d'achat celui auquel vous pouvez l'acheter. Vous pouvez trader de nombreux instruments avec des spreads variables grâce à nos services. Cela vous offre davantage de transparence sur vos prix de transaction.

4. Qu'est-ce que FIFO ?

Dans l'univers du trading de forex, le mécanisme FIFO (premier entré, premier sorti) impose de clôturer la première transaction ouverte (la plus ancienne) lorsque plusieurs transactions d'un montant identique sont ouvertes sur la même paire de devises.

5. Qu'est-ce que le « volume d'un ordre » pour un trade sur le forex ?

Le terme « volume d'un ordre » est le nombre de lots standards que vous souhaitez trader. 1,00 correspond à 1 lot standard, soit 100 000 unités de la devise de base, 0,10 correspond à 1 mini lot ou 10 000 unités de la devise de base. 0,01 correspond à 1 micro lot, soit 1 000 unités de la devise de base

6. Que signifie avoir une position « long » ou « short » ?

Si vous achetez une paire de devises, vous ouvrez une position « long » à l'achat ; si vous vendez, on parle de position « short » à la vente. Par exemple, si vous achetez 1 lot de la paire EUR/USD, vous avez une position long de 100 000 EUR. Si vous vendez 10 lots d'AUD/CAD, vous avez une position short de 1 000 000 AUD.

7. Qu'est-ce qu'un stop loss ?

Un Stop loss est un ordre de clôture d'une position à un prix défavorable pour le client par rapport au prix d'ouverture de l'ordre. Le Stop loss est la limite à laquelle vous avez décidé de liquider votre ordre. Une fois cette limite atteinte, votre ordre sera clôturé. Ce type d'ordre est utile si vous souhaitez minimiser vos pertes lorsque le marché évolue en votre défaveur. Les niveaux stop loss sont toujours paramétrés en-dessous du prix d'ACHAT pour protéger une position longue et au dessus du prix de VENTE pour protéger une position courte.

8. En quoi consiste un stop suiveur ?

Un stop suiveur est un type d'ordre stop loss. Il correspond à un pourcentage défini en dessous du prix de marché (pour les positions acheteuses) ou au-dessus de celui-ci (pour les positions vendeuses).

9. Qu'est-ce qu'un courtier Forex ?

Un courtier Forex est un intermédiaire entre vous et un teneur de marché interbancaire, un réseau de banques qui tradent entre elles. Généralement, un courtier Forex vous offrira les prix communiqués par les banques, en jouant un rôle de fournisseur de liquidité. SimpleFX utilise plusieurs banques et vous offre les meilleurs prix disponibles ainsi que des exécutions rapides.

10. Qu'est-ce que la marge ?

La marge est un pourcentage du notionnel d'un trade exigé par un courtier lors de l'ouverture d'une position par un trader. Ce montant n'est pas une commission ni un coût de transaction, il s'agit simplement d'une portion de l'équité du compte qui sert de garantie pour la transaction. Les exigences de marge sont calculées en prenant un pourcentage du notionnel du trade et déterminées par le courtier en fonction des conditions de marché.

11. Qu'est-ce qu'un marché au comptant ?

Un marché au comptant est un marché où les instruments sont échangés pour une livraison immédiate.

12. Qu'est-ce que le glissement, pourquoi se produit-il ?

Un glissement se produit lorsque le marché effectue un bond ou lorsque la liquidité disponible à un certain prix est épuisée. Les sauts de marché se produisent dans les marchés volatiles, le prix peut alors sauter de plusieurs pips sans trader aux prix intermédiaires. De même, la liquidité disponible à chaque niveau est limitée. Par exemple, si 1 million est disponible à 50, un ordre pour 3 millions subira un glissement, étant donné que 3 millions dépassent le million disponible à 50.

13. Qu'est-ce que le roulement/swap ?

Le taux de roulement, aussi appelé taux « swap » ou « intérêts », correspond au coût de portage facturé sur votre compte d'un jour sur l'autre. C'est la différence entre les taux d'intérêts des deux devises, sur lesquelles un trader reçoit ou paie des intérêts lorsqu'une position est conservée d'un jour sur l'autre.

14. What is a 3 days swap?

Although there is no rollover on Saturdays and Sundays when the markets are closed, banks still calculate interest on any position held over the weekend. To level this time gap, SimpleFX applies a 3-day rollover strategy on Wednesdays or Fridays.

15. What is “Size”?

Trade size refers to the size of the position that you would like to open, NOT the amount of your funds that you would like to use. It depends on the instrument.

16. How does leverage work?

Bigger leverage does not increase interest, profit or loss. Only the size of a position has influence on these parameters. With higher leverage, you can open bigger positions but it is not always necessary. For example 1 lot position on any instrument and 1:100 leverage will give you the same profit/loss and interest as 1 lot on the same instrument and with 1:500 leverage. However, when high leverage is used, your margin requirements are lower so you have more free margin and can open more positions.

Questions générales

1. Comment puis-je gagner de l'argent en tradant le Forex ?

La profitabilité de votre trading dépend de l'efficacité de votre stratégie de trading, de votre capacité à prédire les évolutions des taux d'intérêts mais aussi dans une certaine mesure du dépôt qui vous permettra de tenir dans les situations défavorables en cas de forte volatilité.

2. Comment le trading de Forex fonctionne-t-il ?

Le Forex consiste à trader des paires de devises. Les paires fréquentes comprennent l'Euro/Dollar américain, le Dollar américain/Yen japonais, la Livre Sterling/Dollar américain et le Dollar américain/Dollar canadien. Vous achetez une devise en vendant automatiquement l'autre.

Toutefois, vous devez impérativement vous équiper des outils et des formations qui vous permettront de contrôler vos risques sur le marché du Forex.

5. Qui sont les participants au marché du Forex ?

Le Forex est un marché dit « interbancaire » car il est historiquement dominé par les banques : banques centrales, banques de détail et banques d'investissement.

6. Où est centralisé le marché du Forex ?

Le trading de Forex n'est pas centralisé à la manière d'une bourse, comme c'est le cas pour les actions et les futures. C'est un marché de gré-à-gré (OTC) ou « interbancaire ». Les transactions ont lieu entre deux contreparties par téléphone ou via un réseau électronique.

7. Qu'est-ce que le Forex ?

Le Forex, également appelé marché des devises ou FX, consiste à acheter une devise en vendant simultanément une autre. Le marché du forex est ouvert 24 heures sur 24, cinq jours par semaine. C'est l'un des marchés financiers les plus importants et les plus liquides au monde. À titre comparatif, 169 milliards de dollars s'échangent quotidiennement à la bourse de New York, tandis que les volumes du Forex atteignent 5 000 milliards de dollars en moyenne.

8. Does SimpleFX send tax returns?

SimpleFX sends emails with monthly and daily statements, and these documents may be used to account for taxes. We do not send any documents or statements for our traders to tax offices. It is your obligation to calculate taxes based on your account statements and your local law.

9. Can I lose more than I deposited to my SimpleFX account?

To provide ease to our traders, we secure trading accounts with Negative Balance Protection. It is a feature that automatically closes your transactions to protect your account before reaching negative balance.


1. I invited my friends to SimpleFX, and they already made a deposit. However, I don’t see my affiliate revenue from referring them on my account. Why?

Your friends need to place a trade for you to get your affiliate revenue. You earn up to 25% of the trading spread generated from directly referred friends. Additionally, you get 5% of your friends’ revenue share, which they earn from the traders they have referred directly.

2. Why can't I see my affiliates’ names or contact information?

Due to SimpleFX’s Privacy Protection Policy, we do not share affiliates’ personal details or contact information. They will be visible in encrypted form in your Affiliate Panel.

3. I invited my friends to SimpleFX, they already registered. However, I can't see them as my referrals. Why?

Your friends have 24 hours to confirm the verification email sent to them by SimpleFX.

4. What methods can I use to withdraw money from affiliation?

You can use any payment method available for your country residence. Check the list of payment methods for each country here.

5. Can I change my referral?

Decision to choose your referral is final. Once chosen, referrals cannot be modified, since it would harm our affiliation network, which helps to introduce new clients to SimpleFX.

6. I have made a withdrawal of my earned affiliate commission, but I still did not receive it on my account. Why?

Your affiliate payout was most likely already sent to your virtual wallet. Now you can transfer it to one of your trading accounts to use it for trading or to withdraw it. To do that, please go to your Profile -> Affiliate -> Payout.


1. Do trades have expiration or settlement dates?

Opened orders do not have expiration nor settlement date. Unexecuted pending order expires after 180 calendar days beginning the date that the order was placed.

2. Can I trade using my mobile devices?

SimpleFX offers trading via mobile devices. Our web platform is fully adjustable to any software you are using. Mobile iOS app and Android app are available. Additionally, please feel free to download MetaTrader4 software for your mobile devices. Please check the MetaTrader4 download page.

3. How do I check historical data regarding any symbol from the SimpleFX offers?

Charts of currency pairs displayed at SimpleFX date even a few years back. Please click on “W1” on webtrader or “MN” in MetaTrader4 to reveal a wider data range.

4. My account is in Bitcoin, but I do not have any order opened on Bitcoin. I am holding positions on metals, indices and forex. Will my account be affected with the price of Bitcoin going down rapidly?

Trading conditions like required margin may be changed due to price changes. Your profit or loss is dependent also on the exchange rate of Bitcoin against other symbols, which changes in time. As a result, your profit or loss is dependent on Bitcoin prices.

5. Why does my equity/profit/loss change even though the market is closed?

The quoted currency of the instrument on which you have an open position is USD. Therefore, the point value is calculated in USD, and then recalculated to BTC to show profit/loss on your BTC account. Since BTC price jumped significantly, the profit/loss in BTC could also be affected. For example, for a 100 lot size position on TSLA.US stock, 1 point is worth 1 USD, which would be 0.004 BTC when BTC is worth 4000 USD, but 0.005 BTC when BTC is worth 5000 USD.

6. Why are spreads so high during the opening of the market?

The level of liquidity is usually much lower during market opening. Lower liquidity can cause higher market volatility. As a result, spreads are wider.

7. Is spread applied twice, first time during opening of the order and second time during closing of the order?

Spread is applied once during the opening of an order.

8. Why is the market frozen and prices do not change?

The most common reason for prices not updating is that the market is closed due to standard trading hours. Market can also be closed due to the holiday period. There may also be an issue with base exchanges (such as Binance, NASDAQ, CME, and EUREX). However, if you are certain that there is an issue with our system, do not hesitate to contact SimpleFX Support via email or Live Support immediately.

9. What kind of leverage is available?

At SimpleFX, you can choose one leverage for each account. You can modify it, but the required margin will be affected. However, you can always add another account to use a different leverage. The minimum leverage is 1:2, and the maximum is 1:500. The effective leverage depends on which market you are trading.

10. What does it mean when the market is closed?

You cannot close, modify or open orders for closed symbols when the market is closed.

11. Are dividends paid to my account?

Yes. SimpleFX pays out the dividends for stocks and indices. The dividend will be added to your equity for BUY order. If you have a SELL order, the dividend will be subtracted from your account equity.

12. Should I long or short?

If you assume that price will go up, you may open a long (buy) order. If you think that the price will go down, you may open a short (sell) order.

13. Can I partially close my position?

Yes. You can partially close a position using different methods. Please check this short video tutorial.

14. My stop loss or take profit order was not activated or was activated too early. Why?

Sometimes, you can see on the chart that the price did not reach your stop loss level or take profit level, but the orders were executed. The chart is drawn by bid price. For closing a buy order, you should look at the bid price. For closing a sell order, you should look at the ask price. For further details, please check the SimpleFX Trading Tips.

15. I just got margin called. What do I do?

Your equity fell below 80% of your Margin Level. In order to prevent you from stop out (automatic order closure, explained below), you should make an additional deposit.

16. My position was closed without my permission/I just got stopped out. Why?

When you see a comment near your closed order “so/a,” it means that your margin level reached 30%, stop out was activated, and your trade was automatically closed to prevent you from further losses.

17. How do I convert SWAP rates?

SWAP points are presented in the SimpleFX Terms and Conditions.
Formula: size of order*contract size*tick size*swap rate=swap value in quote currency
Example: BTCUSD contract size is 100 and tick size is 0.01. For 0.01 lot BUY order (0.01 lot=1 BTC), swap rate is currently -533.8584 points, so calculations will be as follows: 1*1*0.01*(-533.8584)=-$5.338584. BTC price is currently about $11,050 so 5.338584/11050= -0.00048 BTC.

18. Why was my previous order closed when I opened a new one?

You have FIFO option enabled on the platform. It means that when you have a BUY position opened, and then open a SELL position on the same instrument with the same size, the new SELL position will close the former BUY position. To have both SELL and BUY positions opened simultaneously, you need to turn off the FIFO option. You can find the FIFO option on the Symbols panel, beside the trade calculator.

19. What time are the symbols closing today?

Symbols have different opening and closing times. You may check the closing time of a particular symbol by clicking on the symbol information. Additionally, you may visit the SimpleFX Terms and Conditions.

20. I didn't change the leverage, but it changed. Why?

The leverage limitation is a SimpleFX margin requirement that limits the risk associated with the close-out of large positions held on margin. Please bear in mind that all major brokers use this kind of risk-reducing system. For an account balance below $5000, you can set your maximum leverage up to 1:500. Of course, you can set a lower leverage manually like 1:200, 1:100, 1:50 and so on. But when your account balance will increase over $5000, your leverage will be reduced automatically to 1:400 or less, according to the SimpleFX leverage levels.

21. I made a deposit/internal transfer to my account, but I still got stopped out. Why?

Your free margin was reduced right after you performed a deposit/internal transfer to your account. Deposit/internal transfer increased your account balance, and that caused your account leverage to automatically decrease from 1:300 to 1:200.

22. Why are spreads changing?

SimpleFX offers floating spreads, which are obtained from top level liquidity providers. Spreads during the night sessions can be significantly higher than the standard spreads value during the day. Moreover, during important macroeconomic data releases, spreads can be wider than usual. With changing spreads, we offer better trading conditions during American and European trading sessions.

23. What are the requirements for an order to be executed?

An order can be executed if there is an opposite order or orders on the market.

24. Why do prices at SimpleFX differ from other exchanges?

The prices offered at SimpleFX are spot prices, which differs from contract prices.

25. How do I calculate the required margin?

The required margin is calculated with this formula:
Size of order*contract size*current exchange rate*margin%*leverage rate=required margin in quote currency
leverage rate=100/account leverage
Other data can be found in the SimpleFX Terms and Conditions.

26. What value has 1 pip of BTCUSD?

Formula is: (order size*contract size*tick size)=1 pip in quote currency.
For BTCUSD order of 0.01 size, 1 pip is worth: 0.01*100*0.01=$0.01.
For BTCUSD order of 0.1 size, 1 pip is worth: 0.1*100*0.01=$0.1

27. What is your market gap policy? When I submit a pending order and the market opens with a gap, on what price will my order be executed?

The order will be executed on the first price available when the market opens. If an order has a preset Stop Loss/Take Profit levels, and the order activation price and Stop Loss/Take Profit are both within the gap, the order will not be opened.
