Important

Swaps values may be adjusted daily based on market conditions and rates provided by our Price Provider applicable to all open positions. Triple swaps are applied every Wednesday.
Server Times: Winter: GMT+2 and Summer: GMT+3 (DST) (last Sunday of March and ends last Sunday of October).
During the time period from 23:55 to 00:05 server time increased spreads and decreased liquidity can take place due to daily bank rollover. In case of inadequate liquidity/spreads during bank rollover, widened spreads and excessive slippage may occur. Therefore orders may not be executed during these times.

Calculating Forex Margin Requirements – Example

Account base currency: USD
Position: Open 10 lots BUY USOIL at 43.20
1 Lot size: 1000 Barrels
Margin requirement: 2.0% of Notional value

  • Notional value is: 10 * 1000 * 43.20 = 4,32,000 USD
  • Margin required is: 4,32,000 USD * 0.02 = 8640 USD

Energies Trading

Bull Capital offers derivatives trading on spot energies, such as Brent and Crude Oil, which are among the most actively traded commodities worldwide.

Crude Oil is the most actively traded commodity worldwide and its high volatility makes it a popular choice for short-term traders who search for potential trading opportunities in the fast price movements of this market. However, it has to be noted that volatility may create opportunities but at the same time creates more risk to your investment.

Generally, energies are innately volatile markets because of the direct impact that world events can have on supply. Numerous political and environmental factors can affect energy prices, and therefore supply and demand, including economic growth, political instability in oil and gas producing countries, weather forecasts as well as extreme weather conditions and government regulations.

Trading Derivatives on energies allows for portfolio diversification and greater flexibility as you can trade freely without owing the actual asset.
