FAQ

  1. What is the access to the stock market at RoboForex?

    When a client’s order for buying and selling stocks is submitted to RoboForex, a corresponding order is sent to the execution venue. When the order is filled on the actual execution venue, the investor’s trading platform would be updated accordingly.

    The key benefit of direct access to the stock market at RoboForex is that orders are done based on the last done price, based on the price/time priority (not Bid/Ask prices), and that orders could be reflected on the chart.

    Prices shown on the platform also mirror the cash market prices, which provide clients with full transparency and the ability to trade at market prices with no additional spreads.

  2. Example of trading stocks

    1. Choose some particular asset

    You're interested in trading Facebook stocks. The price is currently 116.88/117.03 USD.

    2. Sell or buy

    You choose to buy 50 stocks at the offer price 117.03, because you believe the market will rise (otherwise you could sell at the bid price 116.88 if you believe the market will fall).

    3. Commission and margin

    In this example, your total exposure is 50 stocks x 117.03 = 5,851.5 USD.

    There is a commission: 0.015 USD per stock, minimum = 2 USD.

    Therefore, the commission for opening a position = 2 USD.

    The margin required on Facebook stocks is 5%, so to open this trade you would need to have 5,851.5 USD x 5% = 292.57 USD on your account (or the equivalent in other currency).

    4. Closing your trade

    Over the course of the day, the market rises, and Facebook stock price is 132.52/132.67 USD. You choose to close your trade at the price 132.52.

    The commission for closing position = 2 USD.

    5. Calculating profit/loss

    Profit / loss is calculated based on the difference between your opening and closing prices, in points.

    In this case: 132.52 – 117.03 = 15.49 USD.

    You bought 50 stocks, and the market moved in your favor.

    Therefore, your gross profit is 50 * 15.49 = 774.5 USD.

  3. What is a Financing Fee?

    At the end of each trading day, your open trading positions may be subject to a charge called a Financing Fee. The Financing Fee is calculated based on the notional value. The Financing Fee value, on which interest is based, may change from time to time without a prior notification to clients.

    Financing fee = price х volume х interest rate % /100/360

    Twitter, 100 shares, buy, Financing fee = 25 х 100 х 5% /100 /360 = -$0.35

    Please be advised that Triple Financing Fee is applied on Friday.

Although Roboforex executes all orders placed by the clients, it reserves the right to decline an order of any type or order could be declined by the execution venue.

    16. Orders sent near the opening of trading. Please note that markets can be especially volatile near the opening of a trading session, with prices and available volume often changing rapidly and with data feeds from various markets potentially being slow or temporarily unavailable. RoboForex cannot guarantee that orders sent near the opening of trading necessarily will receive the best posted price. You may want to consider the use of limit orders at the opening, although market orders should be used if you want a higher certainty of getting a fill.
