16. What are the main rules regarding deposits?

All deposits are free of any charge from SimpleFX. Hard currency deposits are instant, however, some slight delays may be caused by our payment processor to complete the deposit process. The time needed to complete a cryptocurrency deposit depends on the crypto network efficiency at that time.

17. Can I withdraw my money if I have an open position?

Due to AML regulations, we do not accept deposits and withdrawals made by third parties. Your deposit can only be made from your own account/card, and the withdrawal has to go back to the source where the deposit was made.

24. Can I transfer funds from my trading account to another client’s trading account?

It is not possible.

25. I still didn't receive my ETH deposit. How long will it take?

Unfortunately, there is a chance that your payment was performed via smart contract, which means it cannot be accepted by SimpleFX. 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.

26. What is a gas limit?

Gas is a transaction fee that you can set up in your wallet while making a transfer. SimpleFX requires a minimum of 32,000 gas for all transfers.

Forex Terms

1. What is take profit?

Take profit is an order to close a previously opened position at a price more profitable for the client than the price at the time of placing the order. When the take profit is reached, the order will be closed.

2. What is margin call?

Margin Call is an alert to the trader when the account equity falls below 80% Margin Level. This means,that the account is left with only the supplied margin and should be funded with more money in order to prevent it from facing a Stop Out or a forced closure. Trading platform will start closing trading positions at Stop Out level, which is set to be 30% of Margin Level.

3. What is a spread?

Spread is the difference between the bid and the ask price. The bid price is the rate at which you can sell a currency pair, and the ask price is the rate at which you can buy a currency pair. With us, you can trade a large range of instruments with flexible spreads. This gives you a greater degree of price transparency on your trades.

4. What is FIFO?

In forex trading, FIFO (First In, First Out) is a requirement that you must close the first (or oldest) open trade when there are several open trades of the same pair and equal value.

5. What is “trade size” in a Forex trade?

The term “trade size” refers to the number of standard lots you want to trade. 1.00 refers to 1 standard lot or 100,000 units of the base currency, so 0.10 refers to 1 mini lot or 10,000 units of the base currency. 0.01 refers to 1 micro lot or 1,000 units of the base currency.

6. What does it mean to have a 'long' or 'short' position?

If you are buying a currency pair, you are opening a 'long' position, if selling - a 'short' one. For example, if you buy 1 lot of EUR/USD, it means that you open a long position for 100,000 units of EUR. And if you sell 10 lots of AUD/CAD, it means that you open a short position for 1,000,000 units of USD.\n

7. What is a stop loss?

Stop loss is an order for closing a previously opened position at a price less profitable for the client than the price at the time of placing the order. Stop loss is a limit point that you set to your order. Once this limit point is reached, your order will be closed. It is useful if you want to minimize your losses when the market goes against you. Stop loss points are always set below the current ASK price on buy or above the current BID price on sell.

8. What is a trailing stop?

Trailing stop is a type of stop loss order. It is set at a percentage level either below the market price (for long positions), or above the market price (for short positions).

9. What is a Forex broker?

A Forex broker is an intermediary between you and the interbank desk, networks of banks that trade with each other. Typically, a Forex broker will offer you a price from the banks, acting as their liquidity provider. SimpleFX uses multiple banks for pricing and we offer you the best price quotes with fast execution.

10. What is margin?

Margin is a percentage amount of the total trade size which a broker requires as a good faith deposit in order to allow a trader to open that position. This amount is not a fee or transaction cost; it is simply a portion of your account equity set aside within your account as a deposit towards the trade. Margin requirements are calculated by taking a percentage of the notional trade size and are determined by the broker in advance in the trading conditions.

11. What is a spot market?

Spot markets refer to the markets that deal with the current price of financial instruments.

12. What is a slippage and why does it happen?

Slippage occurs when the market gaps over prices or because available liquidity at a given price has been exhausted. Market gaps normally occur in fast-moving markets when the price can jump several pips without trading at prices in between. Similarly, each price has a certain amount of available liquidity. For instance, if the price is 50 and there is 1 million available at 50, then a 3 million order will get slipped, since 3 million is more than the 1 million available at the price of 50.

13. What is a rollover/swap?

The rollover rate, also referred to as “swap” or “interest” rate, is simply the cost-of-carry that is applied to your account on a day-to-day basis. It is the difference between the interest rates of the two currencies which a trader either earns or pays when a position is kept open overnight.

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.

General Questions

1. How do I profit from trading on Forex?

The amount of your profit depends on the efficiency of your trading strategy, on how well you will learn to predict the interest rates changes and to a small extent on the amount of your deposit which allows you to sustain unfavorable situations during market movements.

2. How does Forex trading work?

Forex is used for trading currency pairs. Common currency pairs are the Euro/US Dollar, US Dollar/Japanese Yen, Great British Pound/US Dollar, and US Dollar/Canadian Dollar. You buy one currency and automatically sell another.

3. How can I open a trading account?

Click Register, confirm your email and you will receive your login details. Bitcoin accounts don't require any other verification: no Identity or Proof of address are required. To open a hard currency account, you have to go through the verification process first.

4. What tools do I need to trade on Forex?

You only need a computer with internet connection and a free demo account or a funded live account with SimpleFX to start. However, you should be equipped with proper Forex education and tools to minimize risks in the Forex market.

5. Who are the participants on the Forex market?

The Forex market is called an 'Interbank' market due to the fact that historically it has been dominated by banks, including Central Banks, commercial banks, and investment banks. However, the percentage of other market participants is rapidly growing and now the list includes large multinational corporations, global money managers, registered dealers, international money brokers, futures and options traders, and individual investors.

6. Where is the central location of the Forex market?

Forex trading is not centralized on an exchange, as is the case with the stock and futures markets. The Forex market is considered an Over-the-Counter (OTC) or 'Interbank' market, due to the fact that transactions are conducted between two counterparts over the telephone or via an electronic network.

7. What is Forex?

Forex, also known as foreign exchange or FX, is the simultaneous buying of one currency while selling another. The forex market is available 24 hours a day, five days a week and it’s one of the largest, most liquid financial markets in the world. Just to compare, the New York Stock Exchange makes about $169 billion a day in volume and the Forex Market makes over $5 trillion a day in volume.

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.

Affiliates

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.

Trading

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.
