FXTM Leverage

FXTM offers both floating and fixed leverage for trading, depending on the type of account, currency pair, or instrument traded.

For FXTM floating leverage, the FXTM maximum leverage is 1:2,000 but the leverage will reduce as the notional value increases, that is, as the size of positions increases because it is variable leverage.

FXTM offers fixed leverage trading for Micro Accounts on some instruments. CFDs on stocks, commodities, and spot indices have fixed leverage on FXTM depending on trading instruments and account types.

With leverage of 1:2,000, you can open a trade position worth 2,000 times the value of your savings. For example, if you deposit $100, you can place a trade of $200,000.

It is important that you only trade CFDS and leveraged products if you understand it and have experience, otherwise, avoid it. It is also best not to use all the available leverage as it increases your risk and you can lose all your money.

FXTM Malaysia Execution Policy

Before going into FXTM’s best execution factors. We’d like to mention that the company takes all reasonable steps to make sure traders get the best possible results. In case of slippage, FXTM will give a re-quote under instant execution. If the trade is not under instant execution, it will be executed at the next available price.

FXTM’s best execution factors include price, cost, speed, the likelihood of execution, the likelihood of settlement, etc. Let us break them down.

The price given for any given CFD is obtained from third-party external sources. The prices are calculated by reference to the price of the relevant underlying asset. These prices are updated within as much as technological limits allow. The external sources are also reviewed daily to ensure that the prices provided are competitive. If any order can not be executed at your declared price, because of volatility, it will be executed at the first available price.

Costs include commissions and financing fees (swaps). When you open a position on some CFDs, you are charged a commission which could be a fixed amount or a percentage of the total value of the trade. These fees are not included in FXTM’s quoted price. They are charged from your brokerage account.

For speed of execution, FXTM sr=trives to get you speedy execution within the limit of technology available. However, there could be hardware/software problems when you are using electronic trading platforms. It could be a poor internet connection or a server problem. This might lead to your order being executed at a poor price or not executed at all. FXTM does not bear any responsibility for this so take note.

The likelihood of execution is a bit complex since FXTM could act as a principal or an agent. Execution is more difficult with the latter. In addition, the company can decline your order type or give you a new price. You can accept or reject this price. In summary, the likelihood of your order being executed depends entirely on how effective FXTM is as an agent or principal.
