Spreads and Margins
We offer competitive spreads on 70 major and minor forex pairs.
To ensure you can cover any losses you might incur on your positions, we require sufficient collateral. This collateral is typically referred to as margin.
We are governed by the National Futures Association (NFA) and establish margin rates and maximum leverage at our discretion.
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) limits leverage available to retail forex traders in the United States to 50:1 on major currency pairs and 20:1 for all others. For more information, refer to our regulatory and financial compliance section.
When you trade on margin, you can leverage the funds in your account to potentially generate large profits relative to the amount invested. The downside of margin trading is that you can just as quickly incur potentially significant losses if the markets move against you.
