Trading Conditions

Account Base Currencies

USD, GBP, EUR, JPY, CHF, AUD, NZD, CAD.

Minimum deposit amount is US $50.

MEX Group MT4 platforms do not set up time zone, but apply the "Forex Market Hours”, setting 5:00 pm EST (opening hour) as 0:00

So that the charts can be presented in a standard 5 trading-day week for clients’ easier analysis.

Margin and leverage

Forex:

  • One standard lot= 100,000 currency units

when the leverage is 1:500:

  • Margin per standard lot is 200 currency units (base unit, left side of the currency quotes )

Margin Recruitments:

  • Margin for USDJPY: USD 200
  • Margin for EURUSD and other cross currency pairs: EUR 200 (the amount is automatically converted to USD at the exchange rate at the time of transaction)

Stop-out Level

For accounts with leverage of 1:500, when the equity slips below 50% of the required margin level, open positions would be automatically closed at opening prices from positions releasing highest margin to lowest until the margin level is reached.

  • When the market is experiencing swift fluctuations, there is no guarantee about the order of stop out. Instant adjustments may be made by MEX Group according to instant market situation, clients are responsible for risks that may arise thereof. MEX Group reserves the right of final explanation concerning the order of stop out.
  • Please note that when there is a hedged position in the account, instant widening of spread may cause equity change. If that leads the equity to drop into negative, Stop out will be intrigued as a result.

Example:

  • An account with 1:500 leverage equates to 1:500 for forex and 1:500 for metals. The stop out level depends on the leverage level when opening the account.

Maximum Lots per Click and Maximum Open Positions

Restricted by market depth and for risk control, Maximum Lots per Click and Maximum Open Positions are as follows

Leverage Stop-out Level Maximum Lots per Click (XAU) Maximum Lots per Click (FX) Maximum Lots per Click (CFDs)
500 50% 10 30 10

Pending Orders

Clients shall calculate the account equity when reaching the pending order price, to maintain required real-time margin for the execution of pending orders. While pending orders would be automatically cancelled if the margin level is not enough for the execution of the transaction when the price level has been reached.

When the price of a pending order is triggered, all transactions will be executed in the (market order) mode, which can avoid FOK (Fill Or Kill) transactions with other general foreign exchange companies, so that the price touches the stop profit/stop loss but cannot be executed immediately, but at the same time, there is a possibility of positive or negative slippage.

Hedged Positions

Hedged-position function is available on MEX Group MT4 trading platforms. Customers can choose whether to open hedged-position function (long/short) when opening accounts which does not use margin.

Please be careful not to hold more than one hedged position at the same time to avoid possible risks. Holding a hedged position does not lock the profit/loss or guarantee the position.

When the spread is widening in particular market situations, hedged positions would affect the account equity. In the case of open positions, it would further affect the rate of equity to margin, which may result in stop out in extreme situation.

For example:

  • For one standard lot of hedged position of EURUSD, 1 point of increase in market spread would result in floating loss of USD10 in account equity.

Possible market conditions where spread widening may occur include:

  • Opening hours, closing (interest accrual) hours, news and data hours, holidays, thin market with large market entry, fluctuating market and other special market conditions. In addition, buy and sell orders of the hedged positions are accrued normally. However, MEX Group does not recommend hedged positions.

Order Execution

IDLE PRICES

We have an agency execution model and automatically cover all client positions with executing brokers and liquidity providers. On rare occasions the aggregated price feed which we provide to clients can become “idle”. We reserve the right to reverse market or instant orders are executed where idle prices have been struck. These cases will be investigated by us and the client advised via e-mail or telephone where possible to notify the client of the trades being cancelled. We will use our best endeavours to ensure that the reversal does not result in an unintended position being generated however this cannot be guaranteed. I.e. if the order is executed and subsequently reversed to open a position, any subsequent order(s) closing this position would also be reversed leaving the net P&L at zero so the client is not disadvantaged by this reversal due to our onward transmission of invalid prices.

MISQUOTES

We have an agency execution model and automatically cover all client positions with executing brokers and liquidity providers. Although we mitigate the risk of invalid prices feeds reaching clients through utilising a price aggregation system which generates a price from multiple liquidity providers (typically in excess of 10 liquidity providers), there are rare occasions where the prices can become “skewed”. In such rare instances if orders are filled at these prices, we reserve the right to reverse orders where misquoted prices have been struck. These cases will be investigated by us and the client advised via email or telephone where possible to notify the client of the trades being cancelled. We will use our best endeavours to ensure that the reversal does not result in an unintended position being generated however this cannot be guaranteed. I.e. if the order is executed and subsequently reversed to open a position, any subsequent order(s) closing this position would also be reversed leaving the net P&L at zero so the client is not disadvantaged by this reversal due to our onward transmission of invalid prices.

STALE QUOTES AND MISQUOTES POLICY

MEX’s quoted prices may on rare occasions become “stale” or “skewed”. MEX reserves the right to cancel orders executed on idle or skewed prices. MEX will actively monitor/report and investigate such trading activity and in the event that trades are being cancelled will notify the client accordingly. MEX will pursue the fair treatment of its Customers and will use its best endeavours to make sure cancellations are performed fairly and that the client is not disadvantaged by the cancellation however this cannot be guaranteed i.e. no inadvertent positions are left open and the client's net position is in line with the client's positions at the time of correction.
