Forex is the term used to describe the 'Foreign Exchange Market, which is considered the most liquid financial market in the world. Trading forex involves buying one currency by exchanging it for another currency, the price of which is determined by supply and demand. Currency products are traded as pairs in which currencies are weighted against one another.

For instance, AUD/USD is the Australian dollar weighted against the US dollar. If you were to buy 1 lot of AUD/USD you would be buying 100,000 Australian dollars by delivering the equivalent (roughly 65,000 in US dollars.)

Trading a leveraged security means that you have access to far more buying power within the market than your actual balance would allow. Accordingly, a "down payment" or "collateral" of sort is required in order for us to provide you the leverage you wish to trade with. This "collateral" is what is referred to as margin. Visit our Margins page for more information.

We offer competitive leverage rates which are determined by the Global Prime entity you register with. See our leverage here.
