What is the trading and settlement mechanism

1. Transaction currency: USD

2. Transaction method: To open a trade, it will require a collateral amount known as margin, Margin is not a cost or a fee, but it is a portion of the customer's account balance that is set aside in a trade. To maintain existing positions or to open a new position, the available account balance must be equal to or more than the initial margin in order to open any new position. 

3. Order type:

● Open a position: You can place limit orders, market orders, stop market orders, and stop limit orders.

● Close a position: You can place market orders, or use take profit/stop loss.

4. Order lot limit: 

● Maximum: A single order may contain up to 10 standard lots, which is equal to 1,000,000 units of the base currency.

● Minimum: A single order may contain as little as 0.01 standard lot, which is equal to 1,000 units of the base currency.

5. Position mode: hedging mode, meaning that locked positions are allowed. Please also note that:

● If you hold the original and hedged positions overnight, a negative swap may occur (meaning that the swap payable is higher than the swap receivable).

● The orders to open or close the original and hedged positions are processed separately.

● When holding the original and hedged positions, you only need to maintain the margin of the position with a larger size.

6. Settlement method:

● Daily settlement

● Time of settlement:

   ○ Daylight Saving Time: 20:58 (GMT+0)

   ○ Standard Time: 21:58 (GMT+0)
