Price Quotes
Price Quotes

Trades are quoted via transparent "Straight Through Processing"; live prices are continuously published to clients via our trading platform, and traders can at any time click on the current bid or offer and execute a market trade. Trades are executed via "Market Execution" and the prices are updated automatically as market conditions dictate.


IamFX clients have the opportunity to earn interest on positions left open overnight at all margin levels. The amount of interest that can be earned depends on the direction of the open position and the interest rate differential between the two currencies involved. For example, UK interest rates are significantly higher than Japan's, so if a trader is long GBP/JPY (i.e. holding British Pounds), they can earn interest on the roll. Conversely, if a trader is short GBP/JPY (i.e. holding yen) they will pay interest on the rollover.


Trades are confirmed on screen, typically within one second. Full transaction details may be accessed on screen as well, including date, time, rate, and notional amount bought and sold, USD value, and reference number.

Trading over the Internet
Trading over the Internet

IamFX offers its clients a simple procedure for executing a trade. Through our trading platform, just enter the number of lots and then click on the bid (buy) or offer (sell) for the currency pair you wish to trade. Your trade is automatically executed. The trading software calculates the initial margin requirement based upon the notional amount of the trade, and if sufficient funds are available in your account, will accept the transaction. Trades are confirmed online, normally within one second, and the system instantaneously updates both your open position and calculates your current P&L. Please note: all pending orders will be placed using margin rates of 100:1 leverage.

Daily Housekeeping
Daily Housekeeping

Daily Housekeeping will occur each evening at 1700ET and will last approximately 5 minutes. During that time, back office staff will conduct daily rolls and important system maintenance tasks will be performed. Online trading MAY be unavailable, but we will do our best to keep it available.


The trading software tracks all trading activity in real time, allowing clients to view current open positions, real-time profit and loss, margin availability, account balances, and all historical transaction details directly on-screen.


The maximum available margin is .20%, or 500:1 leverage for Premium accounts. SuperCore and Black Mamba accounts can trade with .25% (400:1 leverage) and .50% (200:1 leverage) respectively. Ultra Prime account holders can trade with a leverage individually setup based on their needs. IamFX Traders have the option of using a lower degree of leverage upon request. If maximum leverage is employed, traders must maintain the minimum margin requirement on their open positions at all times. It is the customer's responsibility to monitor his/her margin account balance. IamFX has the right to liquidate any or all open positions whenever a trader's minimum margin requirement is not maintained.

This is an important risk management feature designed to strictly limit trading losses in an account. The minimum margin requirement is approximately $25 per lot of 10,000 units of base currency in a SuperCore account with 400:1 leverage. The requirements for leverage may vary with account size or market conditions, and may be changed from time to time at the sole discretion of IamFX or upon request. Note: margin cannot be changed while holding open positions.

Order Types
Market Orders Market Orders

Market Orders are the most common type of order. A market order is used when you want to execute an order immediately at the market price, which is either the displayed bid or ask price on the screen. You can use the Market Order to enter a new position (long or short) or to exit an existing position (buy or sell). When on the order platform, "Type" will read "Market Execution".

Associated Orders Associated Orders

Associated Orders are either entry orders or open position that have a stop loss and/or a limit order (take profit) attached to the position. For example: you buy 1 lot of EUR/USD and place a stop loss and limit order (take profit). These two orders are associated to the EUR/USD position. Note: on the IamFX Metatrader 4 trading platform, if you were to close the EUR/USD position prior to the associated order being executed, they will automatically cancel which is an efficient advantage during trading.
