A daily financing charge may apply to each FX/CFD open position at the closing of Companies trading day as regard to that FX/CFD. If such financing charge is applicable, it will either be requested to be paid by Client directly to Company or it will be paid by Company to Client, depending on the type of FX/CFD and the nature of the position Client holds. The method of calculation of the financing charge varies according to the type of FX/CFD to which it applies. Moreover, the amount of the financing charge will vary as it is linked to current interest rates (such as LIBOR). The financing charge will be credited or debited (as appropriate) to Client’s account on the next trading day following the day to which it relates.
Company reserves the right to change the method of calculating the financing charge, the financing rates and/or the types of FX/CFDs to which the financing charge applies. For certain types of FX/CFDs, a commission is payable by Client to open and close FX/CFD positions. Such commission payable will be debited from Client account at the same time as Company opens or closes the relevant FX/CFD. Changes in our swap interest rates and calculations shall be at our own discretion and without notice. Clients need to always check our website for the then current rates charged. Rates may change quickly due to market conditions (changes in interest rates, volatility, liquidity etc.) and due to various risk related matters that are at the firm's sole discretion.
The future contract on which a CFD is based has an expiration date, and clients will be able to close their CFD positions until this date. Positions not closed by clients by this date will be closed by Company at the last available price. Approximately 3-5 days before expiring, a new CFD based on the next future contract will begin trading. During this period, no new positions can be opened in the old CFD contract.
This Adjustment will show up in your account under Rollover Charge and will not affect the real value of your Equity. However, you should be aware that the switch between the two Future prices of the underlying CFD could involve a substantial price difference. Therefore, Entry Orders might be filled on Market rates rather then on the predefined rates. If you do not want to incur the price adjustment or any implication of the underlying CFD rollover, you can close your position(s) and/or cancel Orders before the rollover date and open a new position afterwards. Company, at its best effort, will inform Client about any projected expiration of instruments by Popup, email or through the site.
Any open FX/CFD transaction held by Client at the end of the trading day as determined by Company or over the weekend, shall automatically be rolled over to the next business day so as to avoid an automatic close and physical settlement of the transaction. Client acknowledges that when rolling over such transactions to the next business day, a premium may be either added or subtracted from Client account with respect to such transaction. The MT4 platform calculates overnight rollover at 21:00 GMT and the rollover charge/credit is debited or credited to and from the trading account. Example: If you sell 1 lot EURUSD, you will pay rollover costs on 100.000 Euro, which at the current rate would be $0.017. This rate may vary over time, for actual rates click here.
On Wednesday at 21:00 GMT, overnight rollover fees are multiplied by three (x3) in order to compensate for the upcoming weekend. The premium amount shall be determined by Company from time to time, in Company absolute discretion. Client hereby authorizes Company to add or subtract the premium to or from Client’s account for any open transaction that have accrued a premium, in accordance with the applicable rate thereto, each day at the time of collection specified on the trading platform for each individual instrument, as applicable.

Placing of instructions
Types of Orders Accepted
Some of the types of orders Company accepts include, but are not limited to:
1. Good till Cancelled (“GTC”) - An order (other than a market order), that by its terms is effective until filled or cancelled by Customer. GTC Orders do not automatically cancel at the end of the Business Day on which they are placed.
2. Limit - An order (other than a market order) to buy or sell the identified market at a specified price. A limit order to buy generally will be executed when the ask price equals or falls below the bid price that you specify in the limit order. A limit order to sell generally will be executed when the bid price equals or exceeds the ask price that you specify in the limit order.
3. Market - An order to buy or sell the identified market at the current market price that Company provides either via the Online Trading System or over the telephone through one of the dealers. An order to buy is executed at the current market ask price and an order to sell is executed at the current market bid price.
4. One Cancels the Other (“OCO”) - An order that is linked to another order. If one of the orders is executed, the other will be automatically cancelled.
5. Stop Loss - A stop loss order is an instruction to buy or sell a market at a price which is worse than the opening price of an open position (or worse than the prevailing price when applying the stop loss order to an already open position). It can be used to help protect against losses. Please note that because of market gapping, the best available price that may be achieved could be materially different to the price set on the stop loss order and as such, stop loss orders are not guaranteed to take effect at the price for which they are set.
6. Trailing Stop - A trailing stop is the same as a stop loss order with the only difference being that, instead of setting a price at which the order is activated, the trailing stop order is activated at a fixed distance from the market price. For example, if Customer has purchased a long open position and the market ask price increases, the trailing stop price will also increase and will trail behind the market ask price at the fixed distance set by Customer. If the market ask price then decreases, the trailing stop price will remain fixed at its last position and if the market ask price reaches the trailing stop price, the order will be executed. Please note that because of market gapping, the best available price that may be achieved could be materially different to the price set on the trailing stop order and as such, trailing stop orders are not guaranteed to take effect at the fixed distance for which they are set.
Following submission of an order, it is your sole responsibility to remain available for order and fill confirmations, and other communications regarding your Account until all open orders are completed. Thereafter, you must monitor your Account frequently when you have open positions in the Account.
Your order shall be valid in accordance with the type and time of the given order, as specified. If the time of validity or expiration date/time of the order is not specified, it shall be valid for an indefinite period.
Terms of Acceptance for Orders
It is your sole responsibility to clearly indicate the terms of an order when entered, whether it is a market order, limit order, stop loss order or any other type of order, including the relevant price and lot size. You acknowledge and agree that, despite our best efforts, the price at which execution occurs may be materially different to the price specified in your order. This may result from sudden price movements in the underlying assets that are beyond our control. Company shall have no liability for failure to execute orders. Company shall have the right, but not the obligation, to reject any order in whole or in part prior to execution, or to cancel any order, where your Account contains margin that is insufficient to support the entire order or where such order is illegal or otherwise improper.
We are required to have an execution policy and to provide our clients with appropriate information in relation to our execution policy. Where you place orders with us, the execution factors that we consider and their relative importance is as set out below:
1. Price . The relative importance we attach is “high”.
2. Speed . The relative importance we attach is “high”.
3. Likelihood of execution and settlement . The relative importance we attach is “high”.
4. Size . The relative importance we attach is “high”.
We are the principal to every order you place with us and therefore we are the only execution venue.

If your Account is a joint account, you agree that we are authorized to act on the instructions of any one person in whose name the Account is held, without further inquiry.

Right not to accept orders
We may, but shall not be obliged to, accept instructions to enter into a Transaction. If we decline to enter into a proposed Transaction, we shall not be obliged to give a reason but we shall promptly notify you accordingly.
Control of orders prior to execution
We have the right (but not the obligation) to set limits and/or parameters to control your ability to place orders at our absolute discretion.

1. controls over maximum order amounts and maximum order sizes;

Customers must be aware that Forex transactions carry a high degree of risk. The amount of initial margin may be small relative to the value of the foreign currency so that transactions are 'leveraged' or 'geared' A relatively small market movement may have a proportionately larger impact on the funds that the Customer has deposited or will have to deposit. This may work against as well as for the customer.
Company exclusively reserves the right to widen its variable spreads, adjust leverage, change its rollover rates, change the historic closing rate of positions for up to 3 years after the position is closed based on the actual market rate should differences be discovered and/or increase the margin requirements without notice under certain market conditions including, but not limited to, when the trading desk is closed, around fundamental announcements, as a result of changes in credit markets and/or at times of extreme market volatility.
In such cases when due to factors out of Companies control and despite our best efforts to avoid such situation, the platform records off-market rates, we reserve the right to adjust closing rates in accordance with actual market rates based on the guidelines outlined below.
With regards to market rates adjustments, Company reserves the right to adjust the rate accordingly based on actual market rates as follows: on put/sell positions the highest market rate recorded at that time and on call/buy positions the lowest market rate recorded at the specified closing time.
In such circumstances, the Customer agrees to indemnify Company for any and all losses that may occur because of the situations outlined above. Any adjustments in such cases will be made from invested capital and not from any bonuses or awards should the trading account have any. In the event that an adjustment is to be made because of differences in historical closing rates and actual market rates any profits won by using any trading bonus or award will also be considered bonus funds and as such any losses will be deducted from actual invested capital.
Execution of orders
We shall use our reasonable endeavors’ to execute any order promptly, but in accepting your orders we do not represent or warrant that it will be possible to execute such order or that execution will be possible according to your instructions. If we encounter any material difficulty relevant to the proper carrying out of an order on your behalf we shall notify you promptly.
At the end of each trading day all transactions that we have executed on your behalf will be available via your online Account on our website as Trading status (which consists of cash positions, open and closed positions etc.) In the absence of manifest error Trading status, shall be deemed correct, conclusive and binding upon you if not objected to immediately by email if orders were placed through Online Trading System or by telephone to the Company Trading Desk, within five 5 Days of making such Trading status available to you via our website.
Trading status in the absence of manifest error, shall be deemed correct, conclusive and binding upon you if not objected to immediately.
Trading status which Client made during the course of his trading with Company will be considered as evidence that the Client used the Service with which he is Agreed up on, as well as that the Company had provided him with the Services under these Terms and conditions.
Improper or Abusive Trading
Company objective is to provide the most efficient trading liquidity available in the form of streaming, tradable prices for most of the financial instruments we offer on the trading platform. As a result of the highly automated nature of the delivery of these streaming, tradable prices, you acknowledge and accept that price misquotations are likely to occur from time to time.
Should you execute trading strategies with the objective of exploiting such misquotation(s) or act in bad faith (commonly known as ‘sniping’), Company shall consider this as unacceptable behaviour. Should Company determine, at its sole discretion and in good faith, that you or any representative of yours trading on your behalf is taking advantage, benefitting, attempting to take advantage or to benefit of such misquotation(s) or that you are committing any other improper or abusive trading act such as for example:
1. fraud/illegal actions that led to the transaction;
2. orders placed based on manipulated prices as a result of system errors or system malfunctions;
3. arbitrage trading on prices offered by our platforms as a result of systems errors; and/or
4. coordinated transactions by related parties in order to take advantage of systems errors and delays on systems updates.
Then Company will have the right to:
1. adjust the price spreads available to you; and/or
2. restrict your access to streaming, instantly tradable quotes, including providing manual quotation only; and/or

Should Company consider that the employee and/or former employee is trading with any brand of Company without the Companies prior written approval personally and/or via a third party we shall consider all the trading to be abusive and/or improper trading. In such circumstances the employee and/or former employee’s trading account(s) and all open positions shall be closed immediately and any funds held within the account shall be confiscated.

Trailing Stop functionality in case that MT4 terminal is closed
In the event that the MetaTrader 4 client terminal is closed, trailing stop will not work. This happens as the trailing stop works on the client terminal side and in this respect, if the client terminal is closed, only the stop loss that was placed by trailing stop before the closing of the terminal can trigger.

However, when a customer holds a long CFD position, Company shall pay the equivalent of the dividend to that customer and deduct the equivalent from any customer holding a short CFD position. This shall be done on or shortly after the ex-dividend date as that is when the economic effect is felt on the underlying share price.

Rights on Default
On the occurrence of an Event of Default, we may exercise our rights under this clause, except that in the case of the occurrence of any Event of Default specified in Clause 14.2 or Clause 14.3 of the definition of Events of Default (each a “ Bankruptcy Default”), the automatic termination provision of this clause shall apply.
Subject to the following sub-clause, at any time following the occurrence of an Event of Default, we may, by notice to you, specify a date (the “ Liquidation Date”) for the termination and liquidation of Transactions in accordance with this clause.
The date of the occurrence of any Bankruptcy Default shall automatically constitute a Liquidation Date, without the need for any notice by us and the provisions of the following sub-clause shall then apply.
Calculation of Liquidation Amount
Upon the occurrence of a Liquidation Date:
a) neither of us shall be obliged to make any further payments or deliveries under any Transactions which would, but for this clause, have fallen due for performance on or after the Liquidation Date and such obligations shall be satisfied by settlement (whether by payment, set-off or otherwise) of the Liquidation Amount (as defined below);
b) we shall (on, or as soon as reasonably practicable after, the Liquidation Date) determine (discounting if appropriate), in respect of each Transaction the total cost, loss or, as the case may be, gain, in each case expressed in the Base Currency specified by us in writing or, failing any such specification, the lawful currency of the United States (and, if appropriate, including any loss of bargain, cost of funding or, without duplication, cost, loss or, as the case may be, gain as a result of the termination, liquidation, obtaining, performing or re-establishing of any hedge or related trading position) as a result of the termination, pursuant to this Agreement, of each payment or delivery which would otherwise have been required to be made under such Transaction (assuming satisfaction of each applicable condition precedent and having due regard, if appropriate, to such market quotations published on, or official settlement prices set by the relevant exchange as may be available on, or immediately preceding, the date of calculation); and
c) we shall treat each cost or loss to us, determined as above, as a positive amount and each gain by us, so determined, as a negative amount and aggregate all of such amounts to produce a single, net positive or negative amount, denominated in the Base Currency (the “ Liquidation Amount”).
If the Liquidation Amount determined pursuant to this clause is a positive amount, you shall pay it to us and if it is a negative amount, we shall pay it to you. We shall notify you of the Liquidation Amount, and by whom it is payable, immediately after the calculation of such amount.
Where termination and liquidation occurs in accordance with this clause, we shall also be entitled, at our discretion, to terminate and liquidate, in accordance with the provisions of this clause, any other transactions entered into between us which are then outstanding.
The Liquidation Amount shall be paid in the Base Currency by the close of business on the Business Day following the completion of the termination and liquidation under this clause (converted as required by applicable law into any other currency, any costs of such conversion to be borne by you, and (if applicable) deducted from any payment to you). Any Liquidation Amount not paid on the due date shall be treated as an unpaid such amount and bear interest, at the average rate at which overnight deposits in the currency of such payment are offered by major banks in the London interbank market as of 11.00 am (London time) (or, if no such rate is available, at such reasonable rate as we may select) plus one (1%) per annum for each day for which such amount remains unpaid.
For the purposes of any calculation hereunder, we may convert amounts denominated in any other currency into the Base Currency at such rate prevailing at the time of the calculation as we shall reasonably select.
Unless a Liquidation Date has occurred or has been effectively set, we shall not be obliged to make any payment or delivery scheduled to be made by us under a Transaction for as long as an Event of Default or any event which may become (with the passage of time, the giving of notice, the making of any determination hereunder, or any combination thereof) an Event of Default with respect to you has occurred and is continuing.
Our rights under this clause shall be in addition to, and not in limitation or exclusion of, any other rights which we may have (whether by agreement, operation of law or otherwise).
Application of netting to Transactions
This clause applies to each Transaction entered into or outstanding between us on or after the date this Agreement takes effect.
This Agreement, the particular terms applicable to each Transaction entered into under this Agreement, and all amendments to any of them shall together constitute a single agreement between us. We both acknowledge that all Transactions entered into on or after the date this Agreement takes effect are entered into in reliance upon the fact that the Agreement and all such terms constitute a single agreement between us.
On an Event of Default or at any time after we have determined, in our absolute discretion, that you have not performed (or we reasonably believe that you will not be able or willing in the future to perform) any of your obligations to us, in addition to any rights under the Clause 15 (Netting) we shall be entitled, without prior notice to you:
a) instead of returning to you investments equivalent to those credited to your account, to pay to you the fair market value of such investments at the time we exercise such right;
b) to sell such of your investments as are in our possession or in the possession of any nominee or third party appointed under or pursuant to this Agreement, in each case as we may in our absolute discretion select or and upon such terms as we may in our absolute discretion think fit (without being responsible for any loss or diminution in price) in order to realize funds sufficient to cover any amount due by you hereunder;
c) to close out, replace or reverse any Transaction, buy, sell, borrow or lend or enter into any other Transaction or take, or refrain from taking, such other action at such time or times and in such manner as, at our sole discretion, we consider necessary or appropriate to cover, reduce or eliminate our loss or liability under or in respect of any of your contracts, positions or commitments; and/or
d) to cancel and/or consider void any Transactions and profits or losses either realized or unrealized and/or to close out the account(s) you maintain with us pursuant to this Agreement, immediately and without prior notice.
Unless required by Applicable Regulations, either party may terminate this Agreement (and the relationship between us) by giving ten (10) days written notice of termination to the other. We may terminate this Agreement immediately if you fail to observe or perform any provision of this Agreement or in the event of your insolvency.
Upon terminating this Agreement:
a) all amounts payable by you to us will become immediately due and payable including (but without limitation):
i. all outstanding fees, charges and commissions;
ii. any dealing expenses incurred by terminating this Agreement; and
iii. any losses and expenses realised in closing out any Transactions or settling or concluding outstanding obligations incurred by us on your behalf.
b) Company shall apply best execution rules in cases where you have not provided Company with specific instructions regarding the closing of your positions.
c) Company shall return any funds remaining in your trading account to your bank account, specifically the account from which the funds were debited. Your funds may be returned to another bank account to which you are the beneficiary as long as you provide us with the required documents to verify that the account belongs to you.
Termination shall not affect then outstanding rights and obligations and Transactions which shall continue to be governed by this Agreement and the particular clauses agreed between us in relation to such Transactions until all obligations have been fully performed.
Neither we nor our directors, officers, employees, or agents shall be liable for any losses, damages, costs or expenses, whether arising out of negligence, breach of contract, misrepresentation or otherwise, incurred or suffered by you under this Agreement (including any Transaction or where we have declined to enter into a proposed Transaction) unless such loss is a reasonably foreseeable consequence or arises directly from our or their respective gross negligence, wilful default or fraud. In no circumstance, shall we have liability for losses suffered by you or any third party for any special or consequential damage, loss of profits, loss of goodwill or loss of business opportunity arising under or in connection with this Agreement, whether arising out of negligence, breach of contract, misrepresentation or otherwise. Nothing in this Agreement will limit our liability for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence.
Without limitation, we do not accept liability for any adverse tax implications of any Transaction whatsoever.
Changes in the market
Market orders are executed at the bid/ask prices offered through us. Pending orders (stop loss, limit (take profit), entry limit (to buy or to sell), entry stop (to buy or to sell) are executed at the then market price requested by you and offered through us. We reserve the right, at our full discretion, not to execute the order, or to change the quoted price of the Transaction, or to offer you a new quote, in case of technical failure of the trading platform or in case of extraordinary or abnormal fluctuations of the price of the financial instrument as offered in the market. In the event we offer you a new quote you have the right to either accept it or refuse it and thus cancel the execution of the Transaction.
Without limitation, we do not accept any liability by reason of any delay or change in market conditions before any particular Transaction is affected.
Limitation of Liability
We shall not be liable to you for any partial or non-performance of our obligations hereunder by reason of any cause beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation any breakdown, delay, malfunction or failure of transmission, communication or computer facilities, industrial action, act of terrorism, act of God, acts and regulations of any governmental or supra national bodies or authorities or the failure by the relevant intermediate broker or agent, agent or principal of our custodian, sub-custodian, dealer, exchange, clearing house or regulatory or self-regulatory organization, for any reason, to perform its obligations. Nothing in this Agreement will exclude or restrict any duty or liability we may have to you under Applicable Regulations, which may not be excluded or restricted there under.
Responsibility for orders
You will be responsible for all orders entered on your behalf via an Electronic Service and you will be fully liable to us for the settlement of any Transaction arising from it.

Rights and remedies
The rights and remedies provided under this Agreement are cumulative and not exclusive of those provided by law. We shall be under no obligation to exercise any right or remedy either at all or in a manner or at a time beneficial to you. No failure by us to exercise or delay by us in exercising any of our rights under this Agreement (including any Transaction) or otherwise shall operate as a waiver of those or any other rights or remedies.

Without prejudice to any other rights to which we may be entitled, we may at any time and without notice to you set off any amount (whether actual or contingent, present or future) owed by you to us against any amount (whether actual or contingent, present or future) owed by us to you. For these purposes, we may ascribe a commercially reasonable value to any amount which is contingent or which for any other reason is unascertained.
If, at any time, any provision of this Agreement is or becomes illegal, invalid or unenforceable in any respect under the law of any jurisdiction, neither the legality, validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement nor the legality, validity or enforceability of such provision under the law of any other jurisdiction shall in any way be affected or impaired.
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with Republic of Vanuatu law.
Each of the parties irrevocably:
i. agrees for our benefit that the courts of Republic of Vanuatu shall have jurisdiction to settle any suit, action or other proceedings relating to this Agreement (“ Proceedings”) and irrevocably submits to the jurisdiction of such courts (provided that this shall not prevent us from bringing an action in the courts of any other jurisdiction); and
ii. waives any objection which it may have at any time to the laying of venue of any Proceedings brought in any such court and agrees not to claim that such Proceedings have been brought in an inconvenient forum or that such court does not have jurisdiction over it.
Waiver of immunity and consent to enforcement
You irrevocably waive to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, with respect to yourself and your revenue and assets (irrespective of their use or intended use) all immunity on the grounds of sovereignty or other similar grounds from suit; jurisdiction of any courts; relief by way of injunction, order for specific performance or for recovery of property; attachment of assets (whether before or after judgment); and execution or enforcement of any judgment to which you or your revenues or assets might otherwise be entitled in any Proceedings in the courts of any jurisdiction and irrevocably agree that you will not claim any immunity in any Proceedings. You consent generally in respect of any Proceedings to the giving of any relief or the issue of any process in connection with such Proceedings, including, without limitation, the making, enforcement or execution against any property whatsoever (irrespective of its use or intended use) of any order or judgment which may be made or given in such Proceedings.
Service of process
If you are situated outside Republic of Vanuatu, process by which any Proceedings in Republic of Vanuatu are begun may be served on you by being delivered to the address in Republic of Vanuatu nominated by you for this purpose.

Risk Disclosure Policy
1. The risk of loss arising from Foreign Exchange Contracts and over-the-counter Contracts For Differences can be substantial. You should carefully consider whether such investments are suitable for you in the light of your circumstances and financial resources.
2. If the market moves against your position, you may, in a relatively short time, sustain a total loss of the funds placed by way of margin or deposit. You may be required to deposit a substantial additional sum, at short notice, to maintain your margin balances. If you do not maintain your margin balances your position may be closed out at a loss and you will be liable for any resulting deficit. All positions carry margin requirements between 2% and 5.
3. Under certain market conditions it may be difficult or impossible to close out a position. This may occur, for example, where trading is suspended or restricted at times of rapid price movement.
4. Where permitted, placing a stop-loss order will not necessarily limit your losses to the intended amounts, for market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders at the stipulated price.
5. Foreign Exchange Contracts and over-the-counter Contracts For Differences can be highly volatile and investments in them carry a substantial risk of loss. The high degree of “gearing” or “leverage” which is often obtainable in trading these contracts stems from the payment of what is a comparatively modest deposit or margin when compared with the overall contract value. As a result, a relatively small market movement can, in addition to achieving substantial gains, where the market moves in your favor, result in substantial losses which may exceed your original investment where there is an equally small movement against you.
6. This brief statement cannot disclose all risks of investments in Foreign Exchange Contracts and Contracts For Differences. They are not suitable for many members of the public and you should carefully study such investments before you commit funds to them.
7. Investing in FX Contracts and CFDs with an underlying asset listed in a currency other than your base currency entails a currency risk, due to the fact that when the CFD or FX Contract is settled in a currency other than your base currency, the value of your return may be affected by its conversion into the base currency.

What people are saying about us
When I found OnlyTrades.com, I was your basic "hope the market will go my way" trader. I took winners too soon, and waited for losers to turn-around - which they rarely did. Then things started to change. I love the relationship with my account manager and the fact that I can trade anywhere using my mobile or tablet.
I can literally trade anything I want. I haven't come across a stock or currency pair that I wanted to trade which was not on this platform. News and training materials are also good for beginning traders.
I want to thank my OnlyTrades account manager. He is the first person I have ever encountered that vigorously wants to share his knowledge and skills, that only comes from many, many hours of hard work and study. Truly a gifted teacher.
