What is Pip?

A pip is the minimum price fluctuation of the instrument being priced. At ICM Capital we have introduced five digit quotes to allow our clients to benefit from smaller price increments and moves in the market. For instance, Instead of quoting prices with four digits. i.e EURUSD 1.3151/1.3153, we quote the pair at a lower spread of 1.3 as 1.31508/1.31524.

What is a lot?

A Forex Lot is the amount of currency you buy or sell. Say for example you wish to 100,000 USD, 100,000 is basically your trade size. Forex Lot is basically representation of Trade Size in a different format. A Standard Lot would represent 100,000 of any currency.

EUR 100,000 = 1 Standard Lot Euro

Although the ability to earn significant profits by using leverage is substantial, leverage can also work against investors. For example, if the currency underlying one of your trades moves against you, leverage will greatly amplify the potential losses. To help reduce the chance of such a scenario, forex traders usually implement a strict trading style that includes the use of stop and limit orders.

To help ensure accuracy please make sure the numbers you enter are in the correct format and include the correct amount of digits, for example EUR/USD we quote the pair at a lower fixed spread of 1.6 at say 1.31508/1.31524 with five digits not four 1.3151/1.3153.

In order to calculate the pivot point you must take the Open, High, Low and Close price which can be found in the MetaTrader 4 platform by using the 'Crosshair' (the + sign on the top left hand corner) and moving it over the chart.

What is a Trailing Stop?

A Trailing Stop causes the level of the Stop Loss to trail the price level of a Buy or Sell position. Using a specified algorithm a Trailing Stop allows traders to maintain their open position and continue to achieve profits as long as the price moves in their favoured direction. Once Trailing Stops have been fixed they don't have to be altered manually, as a stop loss does.

Will the Trailing Stop work when I am offline?

Ensure that the MetaTrader 4 Client Terminal is running and that your device is connected to the internet when placing a Trailing Stop order, as it will only remain active when you are online. Once you close your trading platform your Trailing Stop order will be deactivated, while your Stop Loss order will remain active if it was placed before the Trailing Stop.

If you are new to Forex trading then Micro lots can be an ideal way for you to enter an exciting market that has a Daily turnover of over USD 5 trillion a day (as of April 2016). In Forex trading the minimum contract size for a micro account is 0.01 of a lot, which is equal to 1,000 units of the base currency.

At ICM Capital we do not treat clients differently depending on their deposit size, so this type of trading is open to all clients and is available on both our demo and live MT4 platforms.

We aim to continuously improve your trading environment and offer you the best possible service. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with our award-winning Client Services team.

Are Trading Signals Secure?

MetaQuotes has designed this advanced software to ensure each trade features a digital signature that prevents the trade from being copied incorrectly. Trades triggered by a provider’s signals are copied on the subscriber’s account in a way that reflects the money management rules used by the signal provider. Signal Providers are paid a fixed monthly subscription fee.

How do I choose a signal provider?

Choose a signal provider which is using a Live Account and see how many trades have been executed. Generally, if a signal provider has performed 100 or more trades it shows that this is an active account. Clients should be aware of the drawdown percentage, less than 30% is thought to be ideal. Follow traders with a steady growth rate. If the growth is high very quickly, the signal provider may be trading in a high-risk manner. Finally, you may find that paid signals are more reliable in the long run. If you choose to follow a Signal Provider who charges for the signals, you can be sure that the Signal Provider has partaken in a 30 day trial period and has been verified by MetaQuotes before being able to start charging for the owned signals.

How can I manage my risk with Trading Signals?

Manage each signal you are following as if it were an individual trade and ensure, when you subscribe to a Signal Provider that you set parameters to manage your risk on each trade. Have a strategy in place to choose how much of your account is dedicated to each Signal Provider. Ensure within your strategy you have a clear exit tactic and have rules in place for when you will stop following each signal.
