This is one of the most frequently asked questions. The difficult part in understanding ECN and STP meanings is that those have been interpreted differently by many people. There are three main business models used by Forex brokers which differ by the way the transactions are handled, and orders are executed: ECN, STP and Market Makers.

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 a bid and offer price. 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, a liquidity provider or held internally by the broker. This usually results in faster trade execution. This is distinct from order execution that 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 processes 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.

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 onto you with no dealing desk intervention. To provide you with better price certainty and to ensure fastest execution speed we do not offset each and every position with our liquidity providers. We do this to provide you with a better overall trading experience.

TradeFills streams prices from its liquidity providers, who, in their turn, derive those prices from the market (or exchange) in the case of Stocks CFDs and from banks and non-bank liquidity providers in the case of Forex. The source of the underlying market price may vary for each product.

Although TradeFills prices come from its liquidity providers and TradeFills is not practically involved in the making of the price, simply streaming prices which it receives, the prices nonetheless become TradeFills prices when it provides them to its clients to trade on.

Forex, or the ‘Foreign Exchange Market’, is the largest financial market in the world, with a daily average turnover of approximately US$4 trillion. Forex trading is the simultaneous buying of one currency and selling of another. The price of currencies is floating and dependent on supply and demand. Foreign exchange is always traded in pairs, for example EUR/USD or AUD/USD.

Forex is not exchange traded, unlike the stock and futures markets. Forex is traded on an over the counter (OTC) basis with no central exchange between banks, governments, hedge funds and private investors.

Forex traders can use a variety of risk management strategies. The most common form of risk management is the use of stop loss and limit orders. Stop loss orders can be set within the MetaTrader platform and are often used to force the closure of a position at a predetermined price in order to limit any potential loss. Limit orders work in much the same way as stop loss orders; however, they allow a restriction to be placed on the maximum price paid.

The chart time on MetaTrader platform reflects server time, which cannot be changed.

If you hold open a position over Wednesday night, the amount added or subtracted to your account as a result of the swap rate charged is three times the usual amount. Triple swap rates are charged in the rollover period on Wednesday night to account for the settlement of trades over the weekend, during which no swap rates are charged due to the market being closed.

As you are trading leveraged CFD products, you will be able to open positions that are larger than your account balance. This means that a smaller move in your favor will result in a larger profit and a smaller move against you will result in a large loss. If the price of the CFD you are trading gaps or moves against you quickly, it is possible that you could lose more than your account balance.

Although we will attempt to close your position when the margin level falls to 50% of the required margin (stop out level), we cannot guarantee that your account will not enter into a negative balance. You will be in margin call when the margin level drops below 100%; at this point, you will see the position change colour in your trading platform. This is an indication to take appropriate measures by either reducing the exposure or adding additional funds to the trading account. If the margin level drops a further below 50%, the platform will automatically start closing out positions.

An investor password is a read-only password that you may use to build and analyze your account’s portfolio. Getting an investor password is easy. Simply open the MT4/MT5 platform.

A free margin is the amount of funds you have available in your trading account that can be used to open more positions or cover losses of open positions. If your trades are making a profit, you will see your free margin increase.

In currency trading, ‘gapping’ typically occurs when the currency reopens for trading after a weekend/rollover. Gaps are usually caused by low liquidity in the market. It is possible to retrieve the missing data by refreshing the chart if the gap has occurred because the chart has not updated correctly.

The ‘market is closed’ error message means you are trying to trade outside of the product’s trading session. To check the trade hours of a product, please right-click on the product in the Market Watch window and select ‘Specifications’, which will open a new window with the trading hours of the selected product.

TradeFills margin call level is 50%. This means that you will receive a margin call when your equity is 50% of the margin required on your open positions. Equity is calculated as (Balance + Open Profit/Loss).

TradeFills margin stop out level is 25%. This means that if your free margin falls below 25%, then your positions will be automatically closed. MetaTrader will automatically close them in order of the largest losing position to the smallest.

The margin stop out level is calculated using the following formula.
Margin level = equity / used margin x 100%
= margin level %

A ‘long’ position is much the same as entering into a BUY transaction, conversely a ‘short’ position is much the same as entering into a SELL transaction.
By way of example if you BUY 1 standard lot or 100,000 units of EUR against USD you are entering into a ‘long’ position. If on the other hand you sell 1 standard lot of 100,000 units of AUD against USD you are entering into a ‘short’ position.

You can keep your positions open for an indefinite period of time as long as there is no expiry attached to the product contract.

Market orders are submitted at the current market price; however, these may not necessarily execute at the price requested. The trader executes these orders with a volume and price offered by the CFD provider and they will be filled at the best available bid/ask for the size (volume) the trader is trading. Market orders generally allow for the faster execution of orders without any requotes.

It is an instruction from an investor to buy a certain amount of an asset. A buy order opens at the asking price and closes at the bid price.

It is an instruction from an investor to sell a certain amount of an asset. A sell order opens at the bid price and closes at the ask price.

When a trader wishes to buy (or go long) below the current market price, a buy limit order is placed, which gets executed when the market dips and touches the requested price, that is, if the ask price on the platform drops to a level equal to or lower than the specified buy limit price.

When a trader wishes to sell (or go short) above the current market price, a sell limit order is placed, which is executed if the bid price on the platform rises to a level that is equal to or higher than the specified sell limit price.

When a trader wishes to buy (or go long) above the current market price, a buy stop order is placed, which is executed as soon as the ask price is found equal to or higher than the specified ‘stop’ price.

When a trader wishes to sell (or go short) below the current market price, a sell stop order comes in place, which is executed as soon as the bid price is found equal to or lower than the specified ‘stop’ price.

The stop limit order is a type of order that is executed at a specified or a better price after a given stop level is reached. As soon as the stop price is reached, the stop limit order becomes a limit order to buy or sell at the limit price or the next best available price.

A trailing stop is a type of stop loss order attached to a trade that moves as the price fluctuates. It is designed to lock in profits or limit losses as a trade moves favorably by a certain number of pips, as set by the investor. It is important to note that trailing stops only move if the price moves favorably. Once it moves to lock in a profit or reduce a loss, it does not move back the other way.

Forex brokers use three main business models which differ in the way the transactions are handled, and orders are executed: ECN, STP and Market Makers.

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 in order 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.

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 each and every position with our liquidity providers. We do this to provide you with a better overall trading experience.

All trades are filled based on the prices we stream on our trading platforms. We adopt a market execution model whereby stop loss and take profits orders are triggered based on their pre-set conditions and executed at the price available at that time. We do not offer guaranteed stop loss orders.

Information regarding our swap rates can be found on our website. They can also be found from within the MetaTrader platform: simply go to Market Watch, right-click on an instrument and select ‘Specifications’. A new window will then open, and the swap rates will be displayed.

Triple swap rates are charged on Wednesday. The reason for this is that spot Forex contracts have a two-day settlement period. For example, a spot Forex contract that occurred on Monday settles on Wednesday, a trade that occurred on Tuesday settles on Thursday, a trade that occurred on Wednesday settles on Friday, but a trade that occurred on Thursday settles on the following Monday. In this example, the trade that occurred on Thursday rolled through the weekend because the banks are closed on Saturday and Sunday. Triple rollover interest is applied to positions held open at 5pm New York time on Wednesday as this time marks the beginning of the new 24-hour trading day (Thursday).

You should note that swap rates can be negative or positive, depending on the currency pair traded and the prevailing interest rates at that time.

The most common reason is that incorrect prices have been referred to. You must refer to the bid prices to check whether the requested take profit price level on a buy trade has been reached or not. However, in the case of a sell trade, you must refer to the ask prices. It is also important to note that a commission free account has a mark-up on the raw spreads. This spread mark-up does not appear in bid prices recorded on the chart by default.

Our average trade execution speed is around 10 milliseconds on currency pairs. Our trade servers are in the Equinix LD4 data centres in London. We have cross connects in place with our liquidity providers to ensure faster trading execution speeds.

TradeFills offers Introducing Broker Partnership Program.

Making money trading Forex involves buying lower and selling higher or selling higher and buying back lower. Using leverage means that you can deposit a smaller amount of money to achieve the same buying power as you would have if you bought and sold the currencies outright.

In this example, Sarah deposits $5,000 into her Forex trading account and nominates the leverage on her account to be 1:100. As a result of leverage, Sarah’s buying power on her $5,000 deposit becomes $500,000. Sarah decides to buy 0.1 lots of the AUD/USD par at a price of 0.99802. Three days later, the price of the AUD/USD is 1.04069 and Sarah decides to close her position. Sarah’s profit is calculated as (1.04069 – 0.99802) 426 pips. As Sarah opened a position of 0.1 lots, she made a profit of $426, or $1 per pip.

Of course, should the AUD/USD have moved against Sarah below the opening price of her trade to a level of 0.97802, Sarah would have incurred a loss on the trade of (0.99802 – 0.95542) 426 pips. As Sarah’s position size was 0.1 lots, she would have incurred a loss of $426 or $1 per pip.

It is important to be aware that when trading Forex you can also incur losses which can be greater than your initial deposit.

Forex is said to be one of the fairest and most transparent markets on earth. This is mainly because of the large number of market participants and sheer size and number of transactions. No one single country or bank can completely control the direction of a currency.

The main participants in the Forex market are central banks, commercial banks, and investment banks, however, in recent years – since the advent of the internet – accessibility to the Forex market has increased, which has resulted in an increase in the number of non-bank participants. Nowadays, participants also include large multinational corporations, money managers, registered dealers, money brokers and private investors.

The Forex market is a 24-hour market. Forex trading commences in Wellington, New Zealand and moves around the globe as business days begin in each financial center. The major global financial centers where most Forex trading takes place are Tokyo, London, and New York. The Forex market opens on Sunday at 10:00pm (GMT) and closes on Friday at 10:00pm (GMT).

The most popular liquid currency pairs are those from countries with politically stable governments and well-respected central banks. The most popular currency pairs are those that are paired with the US dollar, these are nicknamed the ‘majors’ and account for around 85% of transactions. The most traded pairs are the EUR/USD, USD/JPY, GBP/USD, AUD/USD, USD/CHF and USD/CAD.

A variety of fundamental and technical aspects can cause an exchange rate to move. The most notable influences include interest rates, inflation, and political stability. Sometimes, governments will buy or sell a currency to influence its value with a view to having a broader effect on the country’s economy. This is known as ‘central bank intervention’ and can have a significant impact on the value of a currency. Given the size and diversity of participants, no one single factor can influence the Forex market for any significant length of time.

Forex traders use a variety of trading strategies based on technical and fundamental analysis. Nowadays, technical trading is becoming increasingly popular, and traders are using a variety of technical indicators, such as trend lines, support and resistance levels, and numerous other methods, to identify short-to-medium term trading opportunities. Some traders choose to use fundamental analysis, which revolves around interpreting economic information including news, government reports and sometimes even rumors. Often, however, it is elements outside of technical and fundamental analysis that have the most dramatic effect on currency prices. This includes events such as central bank intervention, interest rate changes, political change or even war.

No, trading Forex has never been cheaper or more accessible. Traders can now trade on institutional grade pricing with a deposit of as little as $5 and leverage of up to 1:500. It is, however, important to remember that although trading on leverage can maximize profits, it can also amplify losses.

For you to log in to your trading account, you will need your account number and password. These details were sent to you when you first opened your account.

Once you have your account number and password, simply install the MT4/MT5 platform on your PC and select ‘File’ then ‘Log in to Trade Account’. A login box will then appear in which you will be able to enter your account number, password and select the relevant server.

When typing your password, you should ensure that it is entered correctly. If you are copying and pasting, make sure not to copy any extra spaces over.

You should also ensure that you select the server’s name mentioned in the email containing your login details. If you cannot see the server in the drop-down list, simply type it manually.

You will see your connection status update in the bottom right-hand corner of the platform. If the connections status shows ‘invalid account’, make sure your password was entered correctly. If it shows ‘no connection’, double-check that the server address was entered correctly.

You will see this error message if you try to connect to an incorrect server. You should log in to your mobile app and select the correct server from the list.

An EA can be installed on your trading platform by following the steps below.

Firstly, download and save the EA executable file. Identify whether the file is archived or in its normal format. To perform this check, right-click on the file and select ‘Properties’. At the top, it will say if it is a MetaQuotes Language 4 file. If it is not, it is most likely an archive. If the file is archived or zipped, make sure to unzip the file.

Now, open your MT4 platform. At the menu bar, click ‘File’ and navigate to ‘Open Data Folder’. Double click the ‘MQL4’ folder and open the ‘Experts’ folder. Now go back to where you have downloaded your EA and drag it into the open ‘Experts’ folder.

Once done, close all windows. Restart MetaTrader 4 platform and the EA should appear in your ‘Navigator’ panel.

If your account balance becomes negative, we recommend you contact us on Live Chat or email us at [email protected] to avail negative balance protection.

A trading account is connected to a trading platform. For example, it is not possible to view your MT4 trading account on MT5 platform.

To improve the time it takes for orders to be executed, you can try hosting your trading platform on a virtual private server (VPS). VPS can significantly improve order execution times as they are usually located in the data centre, which has fast and reliable internet connectivity.

An account is considered to be hyperactive when the number of server requests exceeds 5,000 messages per day. We are notified of accounts placing large numbers of requests by our server administrators as they slow down the server’s performance.

Server requests usually come about as a result of an EA being left active. This results in the creation of server messages such as:
“open order”
“close order”
“pending order”
“no money”

Please check your account and make changes to your EA to reduce the number of server messages.

To locate your MetaTrader log files, open your MetaTrader terminal. Go to the ‘File’ menu and open the ‘Data’ folder. A new window will open with the ‘Logs’ subfolder. Within this folder, you will be able to find all the log files, and you may refer to the specific date.

As the platform is installed locally on your computer, we cannot influence how slow or fast it works. There might be several reasons, such as:

1. Too many indicators being installed and used on charts,
2. Too many charts opened at the same time,
3. Any extra software, such as EA,
4. Small RAM on your PC
5. A large influx of data received at your platform

We suggest you install a separate platform and run it without any EA and indicators to see if it fixes the problem. You may also contact our support team, who will be able to troubleshoot the problem for you.

Choosing the right trading account is a critical part of your trading. There is no right or wrong account type. However, choosing the most suitable one entirely depends on your trading style as well as your individual experience. It is recommended that you read the full specifications of each account type before starting to trade.

Depending on the technology you are using, it is quite normal to experience some freezing or delays on your platform during news or other volatile periods, simply because of the influx of data reaching your terminal. To minimize the risk of freezing, it is advisable to use the fastest possible internet connection with the highest possible hardware specifications. Hosting your platform on a VPS instead of your local hard drive would also minimize such occurrences.

To enable notifications on the platform, you can use the inbuilt ‘Notifications’ feature from the MT4/MT5 platform by navigating to the ‘Options’ window.
For the inbuilt feature, go to the ‘Tools’ menu, and click on ‘Options’. Now switch to the ‘Notifications’ tab and update the settings as required.

Platform freezing is common if there is an influx in the amount of data reaching your terminal. Make sure you are on a 4G data or strong WiFi, with a high internet speed.
