Where margin, contract size, and general contract specifications are displayed in the Markets Section of the website, and updated periodically.
Shall mean a ratio in respect of Transaction Size and Initial Margin, 1:100 ratio means that in order to open a position, the Initial Margin required is one percent of the original contract value.

The 1 (one) standard lot size is the measurement unit specified for each CFD contract. The possible choice of a leverage rate ranges from 1:1 up to 1:500 depending on the type of the CFD, the amount of trading volume active in the account and at the Company's discretion. At the opening of the Client Account, the leverage rate is set at 1:30 by default. The Client may change the leverage of his Client Account by contacting the Company. The Company has the right to allow a change to the Client Account leverage at the Company's discretion. In addition, the Company may, at its discretion, change the Client Account Leverage without any prior notice to the Client.

Regardless of your account type or the amount of equity you have in your account, the leverage you will be allocated to trade with will be determined by the amount of trading volume you have in active use at any given time.

The default leverage on all accounts is 1:30 based on CySEC regulation. Higher leverage will be available only upon client's request and will be executed at our sole discretion.

Professional accounts will be handled individually and may not follow the above leverage rules.

Utilizing a high level of leverage may extend your trading possibilities and lead to larger gains as well as higher risks; risks might be reduced by following a strict trading strategy at the opening and closure of your transactions. For further information, please talk to a Live Support Representative, or view details in the Contact Us page.
The client must abide the rules as declared on the Forex Boss broker 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.

Forex Boss 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, Forex Boss 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.

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.
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.

Forex Boss does not apply slippage under normal market conditions, and applies it on stop pending entry or liquidation orders during times when Forex Boss 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 Forex Boss finds suitable.
