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. Swaps for XAU and XAG swaps are expressed in pips per 1 lot.
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 XAUUSD at 1,316.99
1 Lot size: 100 Ounces
Margin requirement: 0.5% of Notional value

  • Notional value is: 10 * 100 * 1,316.99 = 13,16,990 USD
  • Margin required is: 13,16,990 USD * 0.005 = 6,584.95 USD

Trading Gold and Precious Metals

Highly valued since ancient times, precious metals, and gold in particular, have always been associated with monetary wealth. On the financial markets, precious metals investments tend to hold their value over long periods of time. Thus they provide a long-term safe haven for commodity traders. Factors affecting precious metals’ prices:

Supply and Demand
With the increase of demand, metal prices rise whereas when the demand is weak the value of precious metals declines.

Value of the U.S. Dollar
As the precious metals are dollar-denominated their price is generally inversely related to the value of the US dollar.

Inflation has a direct effect on the price of precious metals. Generally, rising levels of inflation tend to raise the price of precious metals.

Industrial demand
Technology and industrial uses for gold, such as the demand for jewelry and electronics, can make the price of precious metals rise.

Investing in precious metals can help traders hedge against market volatility, political uncertainty, and economic collapse. It can also be an important part of a diversified long-term investment portfolio.
