MARGIN requirements

Margin trading can be a useful method to boost your equity, enabling you to make profits without having to increase your deposits. Margin trading also comes a risk of you sustaining losses in excess of your deposited funds. Please refer to specific risk warning for each regulated entity during the account opening process.

Forex

  • One standard lot = 100,000 units of the base currency

Under leverage rate of 1:100

  • Margin per lot = 1,000 units of the base currency
  • Margin for 1 lot of USDJPY = $1,000
  • Margin for 1 lot of EURUSD= €1,000
  • The currency pair is automatically converted from the base currency to the quote currency at the exchange rate at the exact time when the transaction is recognized.

STOP-OUT LEVEL

MEX Atlantic’s trading platforms are set to automatically close open positions when the stop-out level is reached. For all accounts, when the equity in the trading account falls below 50% of the required margin, the stop-out level will be reached. MEX Atlantic will automatically close open positions at ‘Market price’, releasing in the order of highest to lowest floating loss until the margin level is reached.

When the market is experiencing swift fluctuations, there is no guarantee about the order of stop out. Instant adjustments may be made by MEX Atlantic according to instant market situation, clients are responsible for risks that may arise thereof. MEX Atlantic reserves the right of final explanation concerning the order of stop out.
Please note that when there is a hedged position in the account, instant widening of spread may cause equity change. If that leads the equity to drop into negative, stop out will be intrigued as a result.

Scalping Trading Policy

  • We allow scalping trades but will not permit excessive scalping in any account. If we deem the level of scalping as excessive, we reserve the right to enforce a reduction in the scalping ratio before being eligible for a withdrawal.
  • We define excessive scalping as a ratio of greater than 25% of a client’s overall trades.
  • We define a scalping trade as a trade in any instrument that is opened and closed within 120 seconds.

PENDING ORDERS

Clients shall calculate the account equity when reaching the pending order price, to maintain required real-time margin for the execution of pending orders. While pending orders would be automatically cancelled if the margin level is not enough for the execution of the transaction when the price level has been reached.

HEDGED POSITIONS

Hedging positions (trading long and short on the same instrument) is enabled on MEX Atlantic’s trading platforms. Customers can choose whether to execute a hedged position which reduces the margin requirements.

Holding a hedged position does not lock in the profit/loss or guarantee the equity in the account. Hedged positions will continue to be subject to swap rates.

Open positions on hedged accounts may be closed in the event of spread widening due to thin liquidity and/or when the equity of the account reaches the stop out level.

ORDER EXECUTION

  • Quotes by MEX Atlantic fluctuate with market conditions.
  • In the case of special market conditions (e.g. data, news, market opening and closing hours), there may be a gap or widening spreads in the international market. On this occasion, the trading server does not guarantee the executing price. Orders would be executed in accordance with trading conditions or spreads at the time.
  • For positions open during weekends or holidays: after market closure on weekends or holidays, if the exchange rate fluctuates significantly and leaves a gap before the reopening of the market due to news, events or other factors, your orders may not be able to be executed at the pre-set stop loss price. On this occasion, orders would be executed at real-time market price, or stop-out may be executed when margin level is not maintained. In consideration of possible gaps, you need to decide whether to close your position or wait until the market opens again before the market closure.
  • If any disputes shall arise regarding order execution, please feel free to contact our 24-hour online customer service or call our 24-hour hotline, our customer service staff will notify the trading desk in real time. If you are not satisfied with the result, please email our technical department with your account number, order number, result, and your opinion. If you hold an open position, please close the position and appeal based on your trading intention. If the order is retained out of your will, you shall take full responsibility for profit and loss caused due to fluctuations in the market during the complaint period. MEX Atlantic reserves the right of final explanation of this statement.
  • If your account has not been trading for three consecutive months, it will be archived as inactive. For inactive accounts, MEX Atlantic may charge a monthly maintenance fee of $60 each month.
