Enjoy 24-Hour Market ActionForex is a 24-hour marketplace on weekdays – open continuously from 5 p.m. ET Sunday to 5 p.m. ET on Friday – that allows you to trade full or part time as your schedule permits.
Get Unsurpassed LiquidityAs the world’s largest market, cash forex offers excellent liquidity at all trading hours – which means you can trade large amounts of currency with little overall market impact.
Trade with Greater LeverageCash forex allows you to leverage up to 50 times your account value on all major forex pairs, and up to 20 times on minor pairs. International accounts have access to up to 400:1 leverage. For example, with 50:1 leverage, you can control 100,000 units of the euro quoted at $1.3000, using only $2,600.*
Take Advantage of Breaking NewsThe forex market also offer unique opportunities to use exchange rates to take advantage of breaking international events, economic news and interest rate differentials.
Trade Flexible Contract SizesWith flexible lot sizes you can test trading strategies while limiting your financial exposure, or just dial in in the desired risk level that’s right for you.
* It is critically important to remember that greater leverage works both ways – it can help build large profits quickly, but can also produce equally large losses just as quickly.
