In order to be in line with Orbex trading conditions, we encourage you to visit and read carefully our trading conditions page.
Here you will find important information concerning news trading, hedging, scalping, storage fees, leverage, margin requirements and more.
A “pip” is the smallest whole increment in any Forex pair. For pairs quoted in 5 decimal points, a pip increment is based on the fourth decimal. For pairs quoted in 3 decimal points, a pip increment is based on the second decimal. The value of a pip is determined by the currency of your account and the pair you are trading. If the quote currency is the same as your account currency, then a 1 pip move equals 10 account currency units per 100,000 traded.
The spread is the difference between the bid price (selling price) and the ask price (buying price).
To view the different spreads, we offer for each account type and instrument; please visit theOrbex Spreads page.
The leverage of your account is the multiplier of your purchasing power that determines the amount of margin required for every trade.
The Client shall provide and maintain the Initial Margin within such limits as the Company, at its sole discretion, may determine, set, or update. The Company has no obligation to make Margin Calls for the Client. For more information on Margin Requirements, please visit our Trading Conditions page (under heading Margin Requirements).
The leverage may change automatically if the equity goes above a certain threshold. For more information on Leverage, please visit our Trading Conditions page (under heading Leverage).
Forex Lot is basically a representation of Trade Size.
Standard: 1.0 lot is 100,000 units of the base currency
Mini: 0.1 lot is 10,000 units of the base currency
Micro: 0.01 lot is 1,000 units of the base currency (this is the minimum lot size)
The Base currency is the first currency in the currency pair. So essentially:
10 Mini Lots make 1 Standard Lot
10 Micro Lots make 1 Mini Lot
100 Micro Lot = 10 Mini Lot = 1 Standard Lot

At Orbex, we offer 3 different account types, which were designed to suit every trading style and strategy.
If you are looking for a stable spread that does not change over time and does not depend on market volatility, then, we recommend you to open a Starter account. Fixed spreads make your trading more predictable as they allow you to estimate the trading costs more efficiently, and make the use of Expert Advisors and trading bots easier.
Traders, who are looking for a variable (floating) spread, can choose from 2 options: Premium, or Ultimate. These account types feature more narrow spreads, compared to fixed ones. Variable spreads vary throughout the day and heavily depend on the market situation. Traders usually prefer variable spreads accounts because they can receive the best market price at the time of trading and due to the possibility of choosing any scalping strategy they like. However, you should keep in mind that variable spreads can widen significantly during volatility and important news releases.
