Market hours: Hedging policy: Trading platform:
Mon 00:05 (Server Time) to Fri 23:00 (Server Time) Hedging is allowed except hedging between swap and swap-free accounts MetaTrader 4
Execution policy: Margin Call:
All orders will be honored under normal market conditions. Margin Call protects you from losing more money than you have on your account. You can find FXCL Margin Call rules on our site.
The values of the Margin Call and Stop Out levels may be changed (depending on the account type) on Fridays at 21:00 (Server Time).
Processing fees: Swap schedule:
FXCL Markets does not charge any payment processing fees. Positions roll over at 00:00 (Server Time).
When you roll an open position from Wednesday to Thursday, then next Monday becomes the value date, not Saturday; therefore the rollover charge on Wednesday evening will be three times the value indicated at the Swap chart.
Deposit currencies:
Your profit/loss will be calculated in the currency of your deposit and will be withdrawable in the same currency with no conversion fees. You may only withdraw in the currency your account was originally set up to use.
Note: ECN accounts can be deposited in USD only.
Order execution during market gaps and market opening:
Because of potential price gaps and changes in Limit&Stop levels and spreads, FXCL Markets Ltd. cannot guarantee order fills in such conditions. Also, order execution time may increase. Any orders may be filled at the next available price and will not always be filled at the requested price or stop or with a set spread.
Trading precious metals and exotics:
Trading precious metals is available 5 days a week, from 1:01 (Server Time) to 23:00 (Server Time) from Mondays till Fridays.

Margin Call rules

Margin Call level: Warning at 30% for Standard and Cent accounts, 40% for Interbank Standard accounts, 60% for Interbank Cent accounts, 70% for Start and 100% for ECN Pro accounts.

Margin Call levels may be changed with prior notification if there is a necessity to do it.
Margin Call level is displayed as a percentage as follows: MC = Equity / Margin * 100%
Margin Call occurs when the account's equity reaches the Margin Call level (the percentage of margin requirements).

If the current level of margin is below Margin Call level, the account will receive an alert.

Stop Out level: Positions closed at 10% for Standard and Cent accounts, 20% for Interbank Standard, 40% for Interbank Cent accounts, 50% for Start accounts, and 80% for ECN Pro account.

If the margin level becomes lower than Stop Out level, some unprofitable positions will be closed in order to restore the necessary margin level.

MC/SO levels may be changed on Fridays at 21:00 (Server time) to the following:

 
Standard
Cent
Start
Interbank Cent
Interbank Standard
ECN Pro
Margin Call 70% 70% 100% 100% 70% 100%
Stop Out 40% 40% 80% 70% 40% 80%

MC/SO levels usually switch back to their regular values on Mondays between 01:15 and 01:30 (Server time)

Notice: During high volatility on the market regular values of the Margin Call/Stop Out levels may be changed without any prior warning. The best way to prevent such unexpected situations is to inject additional equity to a trading account, in order to overcome any unpredictable market movements.
