The client must abide the rules as declared on the Fin8ity corporate website Contract Specification section for each CFD, including the margin requirements; and the Client shall provide and maintain the Initial Margin within such limits as the Company, at its sole discretion, may determine, set, or update.
It is the Client’s responsibility to ensure that he understands how a Margin is calculated.
Fin8ity has the right to amend any entry in the Contract Specifications section for each CFD including margin requirements, and these changes may take effect on both new and existing/open positions/trades; which may be declared through an internal mail message or on the company’s corporate website; unless a Force Majeure Event has occurred.
In case of a Force Majeure Event, Fin8ity has the right to change Margin requirements without prior written notice to the Client. In this situation, the Company has the right to apply new Margin requirements to new positions and to positions which are already open.
If the Equity to Margin (necessary margin) ratio falls below 100% at any time, Fin8ity has the right to close any or all of the Client’s open positions without the Client’s consent or any prior written notice. In order to determine if the Client has breached this clause, any sums referred to therein which are not denominated in the Currency of the Client Account shall be treated as if they were denominated in the currency of the Client Account by converting them into the currency of the Client Account at the relevant exchange rate for spot dealings in the foreign exchange market.
The Client is responsible for notifying the Company as soon as he believes that he will be unable to meet a Margin payment when due.
The Company has no obligation to make Margin Calls for the Client.
Where the Company effects or arranges a transaction involving an instrument, the Client should note that, depending upon the nature of the transaction, he may be liable to make further payments when the transaction fails to be completed or upon the earlier settlement or closing out of his position. He may be required to make further variable payments by way of Margin against the purchase price of the instrument, instead of paying (or receiving) the whole purchase (or sale) price immediately. A movement in the market price of the Client’s investment will affect the amount of margin payment he will be required to make. The Client agrees to pay the Company on demand such sums by way of margin as are required from time to time under the rules of any relevant Market (if applicable) or as the Company may, at its discretion reasonably require for the purpose of protecting itself against loss or risk of loss on present, future or contemplated transactions under this Agreement.
Leverage is the one of the main reasons why so many trader are attracted to trading forex compared to other financial instruments. Because of the deep liquidity in FX market, you can easily trade forex on leverage. Forex Leverage can be defined as the use of borrowed capital, such as “margin” allowing the trader to gain access to greater sums of capital.
What Leverage Does Fin8ity Offer?
The default leverage on all accounts is 1:400. Higher leverage will be available only upon client’s request and will be executed at our sole discretion.
By requesting an increase in leverage, you shall accept that this can result in high risk and possibly severe or total capital loss.
To minimise risk, we have leverage restriction in place and this is only for approved accounts and funds. Please review the table below:
|AVAILABLE FOREX LEVERAGE||MINIMUM REQUIRED ACCOUNT EQUITY||MAXIMUM ACCOUNT EQUITY|
Slippage involves executing any given trade on a specific price different from the expected price sent or preset by the client. This may take place during highly volatile market conditions such (but not limited to) economic or political news; the order will be filled at the next best available market price because, but not limited to - the desired/preset order price is not available, or because higher spread differences are applied in the corresponding exchanges of the traded instrument.
Fin8ity does not apply slippage under normal market conditions, and applies it on stop pending entry or liquidation orders during times when Fin8ity is closed or when - but not limited to - there is a weekend or bank holiday, international economic events or hectic market movements. In this case, stop orders will be filled on the opening price which FIN8ITY finds suitable.
Clients acknowledge that slippage might occur as per the liquidity providers’ terms and conditions and that this is beyond the control of Fin8ity and agrees to waive Fin8ity from any liability that may arise subjective to any damage or expense or loss incurred by the Client, in relation to or directly or indirectly arising from but not limited to such terms and conditions.

The forex market can be divided into four major trading sessions: the Sydney session, the Tokyo session, the London session, and the New York session.
During the summer, the Tokyo session and London session overlap, and during both summer and winter, the London session and the New York session session overlap. These overlap session are usually the busiest times during the trading day because of more participants and larger volume.

Fin8ity allows clients to open positions in the opposite direction of previously opened positions in the trading account, to reduce loss and to decide later when to enter the market.

The products may not be appropriate for all investors. Trade responsibly! Only invest capital you are prepared to lose. The content of this Website must not be constituted as personal advice or an offer to any person of any interests to whom it would not be lawful to make such an offer. All general advices are provided on an execution only and does not take into account your objectives, financial situation or needs. Before making an investment decision, you should carefully consider your financial position and advise on the suitability of the investment. We encourage you to seek independent financial advisor if necessary.
Risks of investing in CFDs
CFDs, especially when highly leveraged (the higher the leverage of the CFD, the riskier it becomes), carry a very high level of risk. They are not standardized products. Different CFD providers have their own terms, conditions, and costs. Therefore, generally, they are not suitable for most retail investors.
Liquidity risk affects your ability to trade. It is the risk that your CFD or asset cannot be traded at the Time you want to trade (to prevent a loss, or to make a profit).
time you want to trade (to prevent a loss, or to make a profit).
Execution risk is associated with the fact that trades may not take place immediately. For example, there might be a time lag between the moment you place your order and the moment it is executed.
Internet Trading Risks
There are risks associated with utilizing an Internet-based deal execution trading system including, but not limited to, the failure of hardware, software, and Internet connection. Since Orbex does not control signal power, its reception or routing via Internet, the configuration of your equipment or reliability of its connection, we cannot be responsible for communication failures, distortions or delays when trading via the Internet.
The client acknowledges and declares that he has read, understood and thus accepts without any reservation the following:
The value of the Financial Instrument (including currency pair, CFDs, or any other derivative product) may decrease and the client may receive less money than originally invested or the value of the Financial Instruments may present high fluctuations.
Information on past performance of a Financial Instrument does not guarantee the present and/or future performance; the use of historic data does not constitute a binding or safe forecast as to the corresponding future return of the Financial Instruments to which such data refers.
Some Financial Instruments may not become immediately liquid due to various reasons such as reduced demand, and the Company may not be in a position to sell them or easily obtain information on the value of such Financial Instruments or the extent of any related or inherent risk concerning such Financial Instruments.
When a Financial Instrument is negotiated in a currency other than the currency of the client’s country of residence, any changes in an exchange rate may have a negative effect on the Financial Instruments value, price, and performance.
A Financial Instrument in foreign markets may entail risks different than the usual risks in the markets in the client’s country of residence. The prospect of profit or loss from transactions in foreign markets is also influenced by the exchange rate fluctuations.
