An automated trading system.
A mechanism which enables traders to trade larger amounts even with smaller volume of free capital which would otherwise be insufficient for the trade, e.g., when trading 1 lot
of currency pair EURUSD with leverage of 1:100, the client has to have at least 1,000 EUR of free capital on his/her trading account. Should the leverage not be used in this scenario, the client would need to have 100,000 USD on his/her trading account to cover the entire traded volume.
A trading technique which consists of opening positions on the same instrument in opposite directions in order to lower or annulate required margin (“position netting” occurs) and to ensure present market exposition. For example, if a trading position of 1 lot
BUY is open on EURUSD, then after opening a 1 lot SELL on EURUSD an annulation of required margin occurs and profit from these open positions will be fluctuating only in terms of spread
changes on EURUSD.
