FOREX

The foreign exchange market is a global decentralized or over-the-counter market for the trading of currencies. This market determines foreign exchange rates for every currency. It includes all aspects of buying, selling and exchanging currencies at current or determined prices.

COMMODITIES

A commodity market is a market that trades in the primary economic sector rather than manufactured products, such as cocoa, fruit and sugar. Hard commodities are mined, such as gold and oil. Futures contracts are the oldest way of investing in commodities. Futures are secured by physical assets.

EQUITY INDICES

Indices trading means that you are taking a position on a stock index – which is a measure of the performance of several different companies. Indices trading can be a way to get exposure to an entire sector or economy at once, without having to open positions on lots of different shares.

MT4 is a trading platform that is commonly used by Traders around the world. The platform is easily accessible for those who use windows though with MacOS there are a few things to be aware of. The latest update for MacOS; Catalina came with an inherent compatibility issue that does not allow Metratrader programs to function on the Mac operating system. Holders of older operating software’s such as Mojave may be able to avoid this issue by downloading ‘Wine’ and using ‘PlayonMac’ to install the program. Traders who have Catalina as their current operating software can utilise the following solutions: 1. Download and install Crossover; a third-party software with the ability to download Windows applications. This has become the most popular option for those who wish to continue to use Macbook for their Trading. 2. Purchase an affordable Windows Laptop/PC: This option will enable traders to run MT4 on their Laptop with ease.

You will have to maintain a balance above the weekly loss limit. If this risk management rule is breached the trading account will be closed.  Traders will only be notified if they have breached this rule if they request a manual review from our risk manager at the time if they suspect that the level may have been breached.

This ensures traders do not allow large losses to occur and have the ability to increase trading probability through performance analysis.
