Margin:
Refco FX enables foreign exchange trading to be conducted on a highly leveraged basis. Every client is able to select the degree of leverage or gearing that the client wishes to employ in trading. Unless the client specifies otherwise, Refco FX sets the leverage level at Refco FXs most lenient requirement. The requirements for leverage vary with account size.

-Minimum $50 in equity per open lot (0.5%)

Equity is the value of funds in the account adjusted for floating positions. One lot has an approximate market value of $10,000. A requirement of $50 in equity per open lot is, therefore, approximately equal to a maximum leverage or gearing of 200:1.

Clients are fully responsible for monitoring the activity in their accounts.

In the event that an account exceeds its maximum allowable leverage, the dealer has the right and will liquidate all positions in the account. This liquidation of all positions will occur, regardless of the size or the nature of positions held within the account.

Rollover/Interest Policy:
In the spot forex market, trades must be settled in two business days. If a trader sells 10,000 euros on Tuesday, the trader must deliver 10,000 euros on Thursday, unless the position is rolled over. As a service to our traders, Refco FX automatically rolls over all open positions to the next settlement date at 5:00 PM New York time. There is a $1 US Dollar Rollover charge per 1 lot.
