This can be done through several analysis methods, which include studying historical trends and current market movements. Keep in mind, that trading always involves risk.

GF Markets LLC is the issuer of the products it provides. We consider ourselves to be a Forex provider offering the ECN pricing model as we source our pricing from external unrelated liquidity providers. These prices are passed on to you with no dealing desk intervention. To provide you with better price certainty and to ensure fast execution speed, we do not hedge every position with our liquidity providers. We do this to provide you with a better overall trading experience.

ECN: ECN stands for ‘Electronic Communication Network’, which is simply a technical term that is used to describe how banks and liquidity providers connect to each other to form bid and offer prices. In the Forex industry, it can be used to identify providers who use this type of pricing mechanism to offer raw interbank pricing to retail traders. Under this model your broker will stream raw prices and your trades will be offset with another client or liquidity provider or held internally by the broker. This usually results in faster trade execution. This is distinct from order execution, which may result in an offsetting order placed with a liquidity provider.

STP: This term stands for ‘Straight Through Processing’ and is used when a Forex and CFD provider process all trades at market prices obtained from a liquidity provider. This price is simply passed on by the broker. This is not dissimilar to the ECN pricing model in that the price is not altered and there is no dealing desk intervention when the trade is processed; hence, it is known as STP.

You can set Stop Loss and Take Profit orders with no limits on all account types. SL and TP orders will still be active, even if your computer is switched off. The minimum Trailing Stop level is 1.5 pips or 15 points. It is possible to set only 1 trailing stop per order. You need to have the MetaTrader platform open to keep the trailing stop active.

No, we do not offer any FIX API connection now.

Yes, you are free to hedge, scalp and trade during news events.

We prohibit trading strategies aimed at exploiting errors in prices by taking advantage of internet, connectivity delays and price feed errors i.e., arbitrage.

Our order execution takes around 70-80 milliseconds. GF Markets LLC uses Market Execution to execute orders at the current price within fractions of a second. The price can be either higher or lower than the one the trader sees in the terminal window as prices constantly change. This execution type’s advantage is that it is the fastest available and presents the opportunity for 100% market access to traders.

We charge no commission, on all of our account types. 

GF Markets LLC works through STP (Straight Through Processing) technology, which requires no dealing desk. All orders are routed to the broker’s liquidity providers, and prices are executed at the bid/ask rate provided by liquidity providers. Liquidity providers in this case are hedge funds, big banks, and investors that effectively act as counterparties to each trade.

GF Markets LLC uses Market Execution, the price slipping to a different price is known as slippage and is a very common occurrence when using this kind of execution, slippage can occur during big news announcements, depending on the market conditions and volatility. 

GF Markets LLC is an NDD broker that doesn’t have any requotes.

We offer MetaTrader 5 (MT5), which is a platform that is ideal for both new and experienced traders. If you’re looking for an online trading platform, MT5 is one of the most popular online trading platforms in the market. You can execute manual or automated trades (known as Expert Advisors). It also lets you enhance your strategies through back testing them.

We do offer swap-free trading accounts for residents of Islamic countries who observe Sharia law. With swap-free status, no swap is credited to or withdrawn from a trading account. Islamic Accounts are only available upon request. 

The trading platform allows you to automatically save and publish account statement reports. To save the report, select “Report” in the context menu of the History tab.

Keep in mind that margin is calculated differently for different trading instruments. As such, for most trading instruments we offer at GF Markets LLC, the margin is calculated according to the leverage you are using. However, there are some instruments for which margin requirements are fixed, regardless of the leverage you use.

Margin requirements that depend on leverage
Margin = Lots x Contract Size / Leverage Size

Margin requirements that do not depend on leverage
Margin = Lots x Contract size x Required margin

GF Markets LLC offers leverage up to 1:200 on all MT5 accounts. It is advisable to know how leverage affects margin. The higher the leverage, the less the margin required.

It is not possible to increase or decrease your account leverage by yourself only by request at support@gfmarketsllc.com, please be informed that the maximum leverage we offer is up to 1:200. It is important to understand that leverage depends on the account type used and the instrument that you are trading. 

We do not close your open positions as soon as you go offline. However, within forex, a sudden stop out can be an incredibly frustrating thing to happen.

When your margin level reaches a certain percentage, in most cases 50%, Stop out automatically closes that position. Margin call, which is similar except that it doesn’t automatically close your positions and only warns you of your position’s downturn, will occur sooner at 100% margin level.

Leverage changes the initial held margin amount as well as your equity, and it’s there that it can impact stop out. Leverage is a means by which a trader’s buying power is enhanced by a set rate: 1:200, 1:500, etc. 1:200 meaning that for every $1 you put into your Margin, it will be magnified by 200. This is useful for trading large volumes with little Margin, but with it also comes a higher potential risk as positions tend to be more volatile

MetaTrader 5 trading statements allow you to evaluate your overall trading performance and examine your individual trades. To access trading reports in MT5:

Right-click to bring up a drop-down menu.

Swap is the interest that is applied to all positions that are left open overnight for the following trading day. Please note that triple swap charges apply for positions that are held overnight on Wednesday.

These swaps cover the interest for Saturday and Sunday when the markets are closed.

All swaps are calculated based on the quote currency.

Swap calculation formula:

Lots x Contract Size × Point Size × Swap Short or Swap Long × Number of Days

After 60 days of inactivity, if the user has money left in any of their wallets or accounts, they will receive an email listing all their inactive non-empty wallets and informing them they will be charged $5 on each of them. After 90 days of inactivity, the $5 will be charged to each non-empty wallet. The user will receive an email informing them of the charge and listing the wallets that have been charged. After the first charge after 90 days, $5 will be charged every 30 days (and notification sent to the user) until the account balance reaches zero. Your account will be charged until one of the following conditions are met:
  • You close your account
  • You resume trading on your account
  • The balance on your account is reduced to zero.
Margin represents a security deposit which is at least required to open a trade. In plain terms, margin is the amount you are contributing to a certain trade and in essence it is also the amount you stand to lose should the markets move against you.
Both types of orders are used to automatically close an open position. With a Stop-Loss, losses should be limited, while the Take-Profit is used to protect profits. Once the market price reaches the Stop-Loss or Take-Profit level, the position is closed at the current available market price.

Slippage refers to all situations in which a market participant receives a different trade execution price than intended.

Our maximum lot size is 20 and our maximum open positions are 100. So, depending on the instrument that you are trading and the corresponding margin requirements. The maximum amount that you can trade with GF Markets LLC can be calculated using the following formula:

Margin = (20 x Contract Size / Leverage Size) x 100
To give you an example: Assume you have placed a buy order in EURUSD for 5 lots. The prices at the time of buying were 1.08155/1.08172. You close the order 3 days later when the prices are 1.08188/1.08205.

Pip Value = Number of lots x Contract size x
Pip size = (5 Lots) x 100,000 x 0.0001 = 50 USD
Profit = (Difference in price / Pip size) x
Pip Value = ((1.08188 – 1.08172) / 0.0001) x 50 = 80 USD
Thus, you have made a profit of USD 80 from this trade.
