    12. LEVERAGE:

      A ratio in respect of Transaction size and initial margin. 1:200 ratio means that in order to open a position, the initial
      margin is two hundred times less than the Transactions size.


      In order for us to accept an opening Order from you, your Available to Trade Balance will normally be required to contain sufficient resources to cover the margin required for the Orders that you wish to place (Margin Required). Total margin required is the aggregate of margin required for your working Orders and open trades (Total Margin Required). Margin requirements defined in the Contract Specifications per instrument.

      You should maintain a Margin Covered Percentage of at least 100% at all times. In the event that you are not covering 100% of Margin Required you will need to add funds to your Account or reduce your working Orders or Open trades.

    14. MARGIN CALL:

      Margin Call is when your Margin Level has fallen below the required minimum level (the “Margin Call Level”).


      Unless we advise you in writing differently, the Margin Call Level for your Account is 50%. IFX shall issue margin calls when the margin level is below 50%. Please note that this event is notified by means of an MT4 alarm whereby the colour of your margin requirements will change to red – indicating you have reached margin call level. Any credit bonus will be removed when an account reaches Margin Call Level.


      Stop Out Level is when your Margin Level falls to a specific percentage (%) level in which one or all of your open positions are closed automatically (“liquidated”) If your Margin Covered Percentage is at or below the Margin Close Out Level, this is an Event of Default under our Terms of Business and we will be entitled to cancel any of your working Orders and/or close all or any of your open trades without notice to you. The process that we normally put into effect upon your Margin Close Out Level being triggered is set out below.

      If your Margin Close Out Level is triggered, we shall in the first instance cancel all of your working Orders in anattempt to reduce your Total Margin Required on your Account. Where this action does not result in MarginCovered Percentage moving above the Margin Close Out Level, we shall then start the process of closing all youropen trades in Instruments that are available for trading at that time. If the closure of those positions does notremove the deficit on your Available to Trade Balance in full, we shall then proceed to start the process of closingany remaining open trades on your Account when trading resumes in those instruments. We may undertake theseactions without notice to you. Unless we advise you in writing differently, the Margin Close Out Level for yourAccount is 30%.


      The maximum amount that can be active in this bonus promotion is USD 5000 or its then current equivalent in any of the other available base currencies. One Bonus is allowed per IP Address.


      Negative balance protection is a precautionary measure that IFX take to safeguard our clients. Negative Balance Protection is an automated adjustment of the account balance to zero in case it became negative after a stop out, in accordance with the Negative Balance Protection Policy. Forex accounts are highly leveraged which may potentially increase risk to lose more than invested. However, with the IFX Negative Balance Protection traders cannot lose more than deposited.


      Forex trading strategies are the use of specific trading techniques to generate profits from the purchase and saleof currency pairs in the forex market.
