Margin is the capital requirement necessary to open a position.

A Margin call is an instruction/warning from your Broker that the Equity you have in your account is running low and may not be enough to continue to support your open positions. To prevent a margin call turning into a Stop Out clients can increase their Margin by depositing more funds into their account to support their position(s) and/or can reduce the exposure they have to the market by closing their positions(s).

Margin Call occurs at 80%. This is when the account”s equity to margin requirement reaches 80% or lower. When the account”s equity to margin requirement drops to 50%, the account will be stopped out and all positions will be closed in order to avoid any additional losses.

This means that the margin required for hedged positions will be the one of the larger side of the hedged pair.
For example:
· Buy 2 Lots / Sell 2 Lots of the same pair: Margin Required will be for 2 lots.
· Buy 2 lots / Sell 5 lots of the same pair: Margin Required will be for 5 lots (being the larger leg of the hedged pair).

As a rule, TTCM does not practice slippage, however there may be slippage during a very fast market and in such a situation you will be given the first available price.

TTCM is an STP broker, therefore, there are no requotes. The Clients” requests are executed at the price that is stated on the Company”s trading platform based on market execution (STP) principle.

Certain types of orders (Stop loss, Stop limit, Take Profit, Buy Limit, Buy Stop, Sell Limit, and Sell Stop) which restrict the maximum amount of losses may turn out to be inefficient under certain trading conditions, where the market situation may make the execution of such orders impossible. Such a situation could arise due to high volatility of the market, where rapid price movement could cause the price to rise or fall, preventing an order from being executed at the stipulated price.

We offer competitive low spreads with no additional commission, however please note that spread may increase during a highly volatile market. Please click here for full specifications on our spreads. All spreads are floating.
