This currency pair is considered exotic. Because of this, at times, there is very low liquidity in the market.
During those times, the spread on the instrument may be very high (the spread is variable so it can change)
or the instrument might be fully disabled from trading.
This can happen with other markets but is typically unlikely.
With these considerations in mind it is imperative that any trader factor this into any trading decision.
Sadly, we do not support the MT4 platform. However, we provide the MT5, the natural evolution of the award winning platform the MT4.
currencies are traded in specific amounts called lots. The standard size for a lot is 100,000 units.
There are also mini, micro, and nano lot sizes that are 10,000, 1,000, and 100 units respectively.
Different brokers may use different terms like ‘trading lots’ and or ‘position size’.
Here, evest uses the term "LOT". Basically it all amounts to the same thing – your trade size.
A pending order (or limit order) is an order placed in the system aimed to execute a position
once your selected target rate is reached.
An order will be executed if the current market rate of an instrument reaches the selected target
rate and it can be executed within a range of this rate depending on market movements and volatility.
This type of order will stay open until it is executed or you decide to close it.
No you can't.
When you are investing in a CFD, you are investing in the possibility of the price of an asset moving up or down.
'Buy' and 'Sell' are the standard industry terms used to describe this sort of investing.
'Long' and 'Short' are alternative terms for the same thing.
We have an amazing selection of stocks right now.
If you didn't find a stock you were looking for, let us know, and we will look into adding it in the next release.
Yes, you can, because all the financial instruments available on the Evest platform are supported by financial leverage.
Please note that CFD transactions do not mean that you actually own the stock.
For the reason mentioned in the previous sentence, you do not have any shareholder rights.
Pip is an acronym for ‘percentage in point’.A pip is a unit of measurement for price movement.
We use pips to measure the change in the price of one currency in relation to another.
One pip is the smallest price change that a given exchange rate can make,
and so refers to the very last digit of a price.
For instance, if the EUR/USD moves from 1.1190 to 1.1191,
this would be a movement of 1 pip in the exchange rate
Margin is the amount of funds you allocate from your account equity to open a position.
On leveraged positions, margin is often expressed as a percentage of the position’s exposure to the market.
For example, a trade with an invested amount of $500 and a leverage of x5 has an exposure of $2,500.
The margin is $500 or 20%.
The spread is the difference between the Bid (Sell) price, and the Ask (Buy) price
(it is the commission the broker charges on every position).
For example, if the bid is 1.2636 and ask price is 1.2638, the Spread is the difference between the two: 2 pips.
Kindly note that trades will close automatically when the Stop Loss or Take Profit order is triggered.
Stop Loss and Take Profit are risk management tools which add an extra layer of protection to your investment.
They are adjustable orders to close the trade when the market moves a specified amount against or in favour of your position,
thus helping you minimize your losses or lock in your profits.
When a trade closes by Stop Loss or Take Profit, the invested amount +/- any Profit or Loss (P/L)
will be returned to your account balance.
When a market is closed (for example, during weekends or daily market breaks), there are no rates being traded.
However, news and announcements still affect the markets.
It is possible that the market will open at a rate which is significantly different from the previous closing rate
due to the changes in demand. We encourage all traders to take this into consideration before opening positions or orders.
Spreads may vary per instrument according to market conditions.
Instruments which are typically more volatile are more susceptible to wider spread variations than other,
more stable, instruments.
This means that the spread you will receive at the opening and closing of a position cannot be fully predicted.
However, evest seeks to provide the best rates possible at all times and works only with top tier liquidity providers.
The spreads on our fees page represent the minimum possible spread for any given instrument
and should therefore be used only as a guideline.
Different assets have different market hours on evest platform.
A Take Profit (TP) is an instruction to close a trade at a specific rate, if the price is going in your favour,
to ensure the profit is realised and goes to your available balance.
If the market reaches your requested rate and you have gained the predetermined amount,
the Take Profit will trigger and automatically close your position.
A Take Profit is mandatory on every position with the exception of non-leveraged BUY positions.
You can set your Take Profit according to a specific rate in the market, or as a monetary amount.
The maximum Take Profit on most trades is 1,000% of your invested amount +/- 1,000% of your current P&L.
This means that you will be able to update your Take Profit level continually as your profits increase.
You can adjust the Take Profit at any time while the trade is open.
Under normal market conditions, the set Take Profit is not guaranteed.
When the market is volatile, the Take Profit rate you requested may not be traded in the market.
In this case, the Take Profit will trigger at the next available rate.
The result is that you could gain more than you expected on the trade.
A dividend is a sum of money paid regularly by a company to its shareholders out of its profits or reserves.
Dividends are given based on each shareholder’s stake in the company,
offering them a certain sum of money per each share they own. For example,
if Apple announces a dividend of $0.80 per share, a stockholder with 50 shares will receive a $40 dividend.
There are four important dates in the dividend distribution process:
A Stop Loss (SL) is a risk management tool which aims to add protection to your investment.
It is an instruction to close a trade at a specific rate, if the price is going against you, to prevent additional losses.
If the market reaches your requested rate and you have lost the predetermined amount, the Stop Loss will trigger and automatically close your position.
A Stop Loss is mandatory on every position with the exception of non-leveraged BUY positions.
You can set your Stop Loss according to a specific rate in the market, or as a monetary amount.
The default Stop Loss on most trades is 50% of the position amount. In other words,
if the value of your position drops to 50% of the amount invested, the Stop Loss will trigger and the position will close automatically.
You can adjust the Stop Loss at any time while the trade is open.
Under normal market conditions, the set Stop Loss is not guaranteed.
When the market is volatile, the Stop Loss rate you requested may not be traded in the market.
In this case, the Stop Loss will trigger at the next available rate.
The result is that you could lose more than you were prepared to on the trade.
We do not compensate for these instances as we do not interfere with market conditions or events.
CFD stands for Contract for Difference.
CFD trading is a method that enables individuals to trade and invest in an asset by engaging
in a contract between themselves and a broker, instead of acquiring the asset directly.
The trader and the broker agree between themselves to replicate market conditions and settle the difference
between themselves when the position closes.
A margin is the portion of the Cash Equity in your account required for maintaining open positions.
You must have a sufficient margin of Cash Equity in your account to trade freely.
On rare occasions, market conditions could cause your Cash Equity to become negative. In these cases,
evest will perform a margin call. This means that evest will close all open trades and suspend trading in your account.
You will be able to trade again only once all trades are closed and the Cash Equity is no longer negative.
For example: if your Cash Equity is -$50 and the current value of your open positions reaches $50 or less
(including unrealised profit), evest will close all open positions to prevent your account
from reaching a negative Cash Equity.
To read more about margin requirements, please refer to our Terms and Conditions.
What happens if you reach a margin call?
If you are approaching a margin call (reaching an equity balance of 20%), you will receive a margin call alert
via a notification within the platform. You can then decide whether to avoid a margin call by closing positions yourself
or depositing more funds. If you reach a margin call, we will close all of your open trades and suspend trading in your account.
Once all the trades are closed, we will review your Cash Equity. If it is still negative and your account is eligible,
we will absorb the loss and reset your Equity to zero as part of our policy of Negative Balance Protection.
You will be able to trade again once the Cash Equity is no longer negative.
Can you reach a margin call when you have a positive Total Equity?
Yes. A margin call occurs when you do not have enough Cash Equity in your account.
The figure at the bottom right of your Watchlist and Portfolio is your account’s Total Equity,
and includes any evest credits you may have received. If your Total Equity includes evest credits,
it is possible to reach a margin call despite seeing a positive Total Equity figure,
since the margin is calculated using only your real Cash Equity.
How can you avoid a margin call?
To avoid a margin call, make sure you have sufficient Cash Equity in your account.
Check your Cash Equity status periodically and make sure to pay attention if you receive a margin call alert from evest.
If you have any other questions regarding margin calls, feel free to contact the evest Customer Support team.
In order to open a new Buy or Sell position, it is necessary to have funds in your available balance.
CFD trading is based on strategy and sentiment:
By closing the position, the invested funds plus/minus any profits/losses made on the investment will be returned to your account balance.
It is important to note that each BUY or SELL position is a separate transaction.
In other words, opening a SELL position on an instrument you are already trading will not close your BUY position.
Each position is a unique investment.

You can try opening the position with a lower invested amount, or with lower leverage.

Every instrument has a BUY price and a SELL price. This difference in price is called the spread,
and contains the commission which we charge on each trade.
As soon as you open a trade, the current rate shown is the one at which the position would close.
For example, when you open a BUY trade, it will open at the BUY price, and close at the SELL price.
When you open a SELL trade, it will open at the SELL price, and close at the BUY price.
Due to the difference between the two rates, a new trade always shows an immediate loss.
