Order Execution Policy

INTRODUCTION

The Company is required to provide its clients and potential clients with its Order Execution Policy (hereinafter the “Policy”). Under the above legislation, the Company is required to take all sufficient steps to obtain the best possible result (or “best execution”) on behalf of its clients either when executing client orders or receiving and transmitting orders for execution. These rules require firms to put in place an execution policy, which sets out how it will obtain best execution for its clients, and to provide appropriate information to its Clients on its order execution policy. This Policy forms part of our agreement. Therefore, by entering into an agreement with the company, you are also agreeing to the terms of our order execution policy, as set out in this document.

SCOPE AND SERVICES

This Policy applies when executing transactions with you for the financial instruments provided by the Company. The financial instruments provided by the Company are derivatives of an underlying financial instrument, and it is up to the Company’s discretion to decide which types of financial instruments to make available and to publish the prices at which these can be traded. The Client is given the option to place with the Company the following orders for execution in the following ways:

BEST EXECUTION

The company shall take all sufficient steps to obtain the best possible result for its clients taking into account the following factors when executing Clients orders against the Company’s quoted prices:

  1. Price: For any given financial instrument, the Company will quote two prices: the higher price (ASK) at which the client can buy (go long) that financial instrument, and the lower price (BID) at which the client can sell (go short) that financial instrument; collectively they are referred to as the Company’s price. The difference between the lower and the higher price of a given financial instrument is the spread.

    • Short positions will be closed at the ASK price (whether the transaction is closed manually by the client or through the Stop Loss or Take Profit).
    • Long positions will be closed at the BID price (whether the transactions are closed manually by the client or through the Stop Loss or Take Profit.
    • Pending Orders are orders such as Buy Limit, Buy Stop and Stop Loss/Take Profit for opened short position are executed at ASK price. Pending Orders such as sell Limit, Sell Stop and Stop Loss/ Take Profit for opened long position are executed at BID price.

    The company’s price for a given financial instrument is calculated by reference to the price of the relevant underlying financial instrument, which the Company obtains from third party external reference sources. The company’s prices are constructed with reference to the given financial instrument specification, which can be found in the Company’s website. The Company updates its prices as frequently as the limitations of technology and communications links allow. The company reviews its used third party external reference sources at least once a year, to ensure that the data obtained continue to be competitive. The Company will not quote any price outside Company’s operations time (see execution venue below) therefore no orders can be placed by the Client during that time. Orders: Stop Loss, Take Profit, Buy Limit, Sell Limit, on financial instruments contracts are executed at the price specified by the client on the first current price touch. But under certain trading conditions it may be impossible to execute orders (Stop Loss, Take Profit, Buy Limit, Buy Stop, Sell Limit, and Sell Stop) on any financial instrument contract at the declared price. In this case the Company has the right to execute the order at the next best price. This may occur, for example, at times of rapid price movement if the price rises or falls in one trading session to such an extent that under the rules of the relevant exchange, trading is suspended or restricted, trading session start moments, during volatile markets where prices may be moving significantly up or down and away from declared price and during news time.

    • Costs: For opening a position in some types of financial instruments the Client may be required to pay commission or financing fees, the amount of which is disclosed in the Contracts Specification in the Company’s website.
    • Commissions may be charged either in the form of a percentage of the overall value of the trade or as fixed amount.
    • In the case of financing fees, the value of opened positions in some types of financial instruments is increased or reduced by a daily financing fee “swap” throughout the life of the contract. Financing fees are based on prevailing market interest rates, which may vary over time. Details of daily financing fees applied are available on the financial instruments Contracts Specifications section in the Company’s website. For all types of financial instruments that the company offers, the commission and financing fees are not incorporated into the Company’s quoted price and are instead charged/paid explicitly to the Client account.
  2. Speed of Execution: As it is explained in the Execution Venue section of this Policy, the Company acts as an agent and not as a principal on the client’s behalf. The Company places a significant importance when executing Client’s orders and strives to offer high speed of execution within the limitations of technology and communications links. The use of any form of unstable internet connection (such as wireless or Dial up connection) may result in delays in the transmission of data between the Client and the Company when using the Company’s electronic trading platform. The delay might result in sending to the Company out of date “market orders” which might be declined by the Company or cause the Company to send an updated price for approval before execution.
  3. Likelihood of Execution: As it is explained in the Execution Venue section of this Policy, the Company acts as an agent and not as a principal on the Client’s behalf. Although the Company executes all orders placed by the Clients, it reserves the right to decline an order of any type or to offer the Client a new price for “market order”. In such case, the Client can either accept or refuse the new price as explained in the agreement entered with the Client.
  4. Likelihood of settlement: The Company shall proceed to a settlement of all transactions upon execution of such transactions.
  5. Size of order: The minimum size of an order is 0.01 lots (one hundredth of a lot). A lot is a unit measuring the transaction amount and it is different for each type of financial instrument. Please refer to the financial instruments contract specification in the Company’s website for the value of each lot for a given financial instrument type. The Company reserves the right to decide on the minimum/maximum size of an order (lot size) based on the clients’ profile and/or initial deposit. Although there is no maximum size of an order where the Client can place with the Company, the Company reserves the right to decline an order as explained in the agreement entered with the Client.
  6. Market Impact: Some factors may affect rapidly the price of the underlying financial instruments from which the quoted Company price for financial instruments is derived. These factors may influence some The Company does not consider the above list exhaustive and the order in which the above factors are presented shall not be taken as priority factor. Nevertheless, whenever there is a specific instruction from the client the Company shall make sure that the Client’s order shall be executed following the specific instruction. The Company will determine the relative importance of the above factors by using its commercial judgment and experience in the light of the information available on the market and taking into account the criteria described below: a. the characteristics of the client including the categorization of the client as retail or professional b. the characteristics of the client order c. the characteristics of financial instruments that are the subject of that order d. the characteristics of the execution venues to which that order can be directed For retail clients, the best possible result shall be determined in terms of the total consideration, representing the price of the financial instruments and the costs related to execution, which shall include all expenses incurred by the client which are directly related to the execution of the order, including execution venue fees, clearing and settlement fees and any other fees paid to third parties involved in the execution of the order.

EXECUTION VENUES

Execution Venues are the entities with which the orders are placed or to which the Company transmits orders for execution. For the purposes of orders for the financial instruments provided by the Company, the Company acts as an agent on the Client’s behalf; therefore company use multiple Execution Venues for the execution of the Client’s orders. A complete list of Execution Venues included in the Order Execution Policy of the Company can be provided to the client, upon request. The Company’s operation time is round the clock from Sunday 22.00.01 Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) through Friday 21:00.00 Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Non‐working periods: from Friday 21:00:01 Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) through Sunday 22.00.00 Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Holidays are announced via the Company’s main website. The Company places significant reliance to the above Execution Venue based on the above‐mentioned factors and their relevant importance. It is the Company’s policy to maintain such internal procedures and principles in order to act for the best interest of its Clients and provide them the best possible result (or “best execution”) when dealing with them. The Client acknowledges that the transactions entered in financial instruments with the Company are not undertaken on a recognized exchange, rather they are undertaken through the Company’s Trading Platform and, accordingly, they may expose the Client to greater risks than regulated exchange transactions. For this reason, the Company may not execute an order, or it may change the opening (closing) price of an order in case of any technical failure of the trading platform or quote feeds. The terms and conditions and trading rules are established solely by the counterparty which in this case is the company. The Client is obliged to close an open position of any given financial instrument during the opening hours of the Company’s Trading Platform. The Client also has to close any position with the same counterparty with whom it was originally entered into, thus the company.
