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 Friday.
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.
Commission charge of 1 USD per lot (round turn) is applied.

Calculating Forex Margin Requirements – Example

Account base currency: USD
Position: Open 5 lots BUY EU50.F at 3,451.95
1 Lot size: 1 contract
Margin requirement: 2% of Notional value

  • Notional value is: 5 * 1 * 3,451.95 = 17,260 EUR
    17,260 * 1.20887 (EURUSD rate) = 20,865 USD

  • Margin required is: 20,865 USD * 0.02 = 417.30 USD

What are Indices and Indices Trading?

An index is most regularly defined as a portfolio of stocks that represents a particular market or market sector. Thus indices (also known as stock indexes) measure the price performance of a group of stocks of a specific section of stock market. The USA500, for example, is based on the 500 largest companies weighted mainly by market capitalization that are listed on the New York Exchange or NASDAQ.

Trading indices enables you to get exposure to an entire sector by opening a single position.

Indices price movements and volatility are impacted by a range of factors like political events, major events that affect companies in a particular sector, economic data like employment figures and big changes in the currencies markets.

At Bull Capital we offer you the opportunity to trade derivatives on major indices across global equity markets. Open a live account today to benefit from competitive spreads and fast order execution and choose to have greater automated trading with our award-winning trading platforms MT4 & MT5.
