FEATURES OF FOREIGN CURRENCY TRADING
Purchasing/selling currencies in the spot foreign exchange market through GFS Securities & Futures, Inc. is a 24-hour-a-day operation, which allows customers to protect their investment across international time zones.
Foreign Exchange quotes are based on inter-bank spot prices regardless of the transaction size. Prices are quoted on a net basis.
Orders are executed and confirmed online or manually via a recorded phone call. Customers know immediately the rate at which the order is executed. GFS, through its clearing broker ensures that orders will always receive a single-price execution.
FLEXIBLE VALUE DATES
Foreign exchange contracts opened can be rolled-over daily for an indefinite period.
You can enjoy the benefits of leverage on contracts up to fifty times your initial deposit. That is, with 2% of the absolute value of inter-bank contracts, you can enter the largest marketplace in the world. As long as you are able to maintain your margin requirements on the full contract value, you can remain indefinitely the market. However, if the net equity of the account falls below 75% of the margin requirement, you will be required to restore the necessary margin requirement to 100% or more to stay in the market with your original position in order to comply with trading regulations.
Being the largest market in the world and still growing with over 1.6 Trillion bought and sold daily (compared to $10 billion a day on the NYSE), you are always able to liquidate your position. Unlike futures or the stock market, there is never lack of a taker. There is always a domestic, international or Central Bank ready to serve your order.
