Even if you have open positions, you can withdraw any amount available in your “free margin”. However, a withdrawal of funds will result in a reduction of funds available to be used for margin to maintain open positions. This may result in the liquidation of some or all your open positions in case the market moves against you. It is your responsibility to ensure that the account holds enough margin to maintain open positions.
Funds deposited with credit card are available for withdrawal within 2-3 working days of a deposit date.

Yes, you can hold positions over the weekend and major holidays, but make sure you review your margin balance to cover any negative move against your open positions. It's not uncommon for currencies to "gap" - trade at prices considerably away from previous levels - when they re-open for trading after a holiday or weekend. This may negatively impact your excess margin. We suggest you keep a cash "cushion" in your account of at least 2% against your open positions; to help protect against automatic liquidations of your positions to meet margin requirements.
To close an open position, double-click the position within the Trade section of the platform. Within the Order ticket, click the Close button. You will receive a confirmation of your trade.

At AGFXMarkets, we offer clients ‘negative balance protection’, which effectively guarantees that you do not have to pay more than your initial investment in case of a trading loss. Technological advancements on our trading platform triggers a market execution order to hedge all positions as soon as the equity reaches the 50% equity/margin ratio threshold level.
The most common risk management tools in FX trading are the limit order and the stop loss order. A limit order places a restriction on the maximum price to be paid or the minimum price to be received. A stop loss order ensures a particular position is liquidated at a predetermined price in order to limit potential losses should the market move against a trader's position. Contingent orders may not necessarily limit your risk for losses.
The best way to manage your risk during volatile markets is to ensure your account is properly margined at all times. There are several proactive measures that you can employ:
Currency traders make decisions using both technical factors and economic fundamentals. Technical traders use charts, trend lines, support and resistance levels, and numerous patterns and mathematical analysis to identify trading opportunities, whereas fundamentalists predict price movements by interpreting a wide variety of economic information, including news, government-issued indicators and reports, and even rumours. The most dramatic price movements however, occur when unexpected events happen. The event can range from a Central Bank raising domestic interest rates to the outcome of a political election or even an act of war. Nonetheless, more often it is the expectation of an event that drives the market rather than the event itself.
Yes, you can trade on margin.
Here are some techniques to help you better manage your opened positions and avoid unwanted liquidation:
Our trading platform allows users to trade in micro (0.01), mini (0.1) and standard (1.0) lots.
In financial markets, specifically in the Forex market, pip (percentage in point) is a unit of change in an exchange rate of a currency pair. Most major currency pairs are priced to five decimal places, and a pip is one unit of the fifth decimal point: for dollar currencies this is to 1/100th of a cent.
Pip spreads vary depending on the instrument. EURUSD can go as low as 0.4 pips. In general, all variable spreads on both major currency pairs and cross currency pairs are very tight and extremely competitive. For full details on our floating spreads, please see our contract specifications.
Click on the link below and find the margin requirement for the instrument/s you choose:
AGFXMarkets Ltd offers tight spreads as low as 0.50 (USD) on Gold CFD and as low as 0.20 (USD) on Gold CFD Future.
A fractional pip is a tenth of a pip. This feature allows traders to benefit from smaller price increments and moves in the market. For example, instead of quoting prices with 4 digits i.e. EURUSD @ 1.4251 / 1.4253 AGFXMarkets can quote the pair as 1.42508 / 1.42528 with the last digit quoted as a subscript. The Pip value for a EURUSD 100,000 position is $10 and the value of a fractional pip for a EURUSD 100,000 position is $1.

Forex and ‘FX’ are shortened terms used for ‘foreign exchange’. Foreign exchange or ‘currency trading’ is the exchange of money from different countries. The value of one country’s currency is constantly changing against the value of another country’s currency. Forex traders make money through buying and selling currencies on the foreign exchange market. The "Forex" market is the most traded financial market in the world. Forex market is the simultaneous buying of one currency and selling of another; currencies are always traded in pairs. International currencies are traded on floating exchange rates.
The most common currencies in the Forex market are divided into Majors and Crosses as the following:
Majors - EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDCHF, USDJPY, USDCAD, AUDUSD, NZDUSD
Crosses - EURCHF, EURGBP, EURJPY, GBPJPY, GBPCHF, CHFJPY, EURCAD, EURAUD, GBPCAD, AUDCAD, etc.
Central Banks, Commercial and Investment Banks were the traditional dominants of the Forex market, but now we can also include International Money and Fund Managers, Multinational Corporations, Registered Dealers, Options and Futures, Traders and Private Investors.
FX Trading is not centralized on an exchange, as with the stock and futures markets.The FX market is considered an Over the Counter (OTC) or 'Interbank' market, due to the fact that transactions are conducted between two counterparts over the telephone or via an electronic network.
A CFD, or Contract for Difference, is an agreement between two parties to exchange the difference between the opening price and closing price of a contract. CFDs are derivatives products that allow you to trade on live market price movements without actually owning the underlying instrument on which your contract is based. You can use CFDs to speculate on the future movement of market prices regardless of whether the underlying markets are rising or falling. You have the opportunity to sell and profit from falling prices or buy and profit from rising prices. Moreover, with our vast variety of markets, you can gain exposure to markets you may not have had access before. We offer CFDs on FX, metals, indices, and commodities.
In trading parlance, a long position is one in which a trader buys a currency at one price and aims to sell it later at a higher price. In this scenario, the trader benefits from a rising market. A short position is one in which the trader sells a currency in anticipation that it will depreciate. In this scenario, the trader benefits from a declining market. However, it is important to remember that every FX position requires a trader to go long in one currency and short in the other.
Currency prices are affected by a variety of economic and political conditions, most importantly interest rates, inflation and political stability. Moreover, governments sometimes participate in the Forex market to influence the value of their currencies, either by flooding the market with their domestic currency in an attempt to lower the price, or conversely buying in order to raise the price. This is known as Central Bank intervention. Any of these factors, as well as large market orders, can cause high volatility in currency prices. However, the size and volume of the Forex market makes it virtually impossible for any one entity to "drive" the market for any length of time.
While leverage enables you to control a large amount of capital with a limited deposit, it can also expose you to significant losses.
