easyMarkets accounts are available in Islamic format to clients of Muslim faith. easyMarkets charges no swap fees when clients extend their day-trading positions into the following day, for up to 14 days. We recommend that you seek confirmation from easyMarkets.com as this varies by currency pair. Please note that crypto-currencies are not available in Islamic format, as is the case with other brokers.

Risk management

easyMarkets offers innovative risk management tools that genuinely set it apart from the competition and will appeal to new and experienced traders alike.

  • dealCancellation: allows you to cancel a trade within 1 hour and have any losses returned. dealCancellation is available across most day trading products including currencies, gold, silver and oil. No other broker in our panel offers such a compelling feature.
  • Freeze Rate: allows you to freeze the price you see. This gives you a few seconds to perform your trade. These additional seconds can make a significant difference in a market as volatile as Forex or Cryptocurrencies.
  • Guaranteed stop loss: automatically closes a position if the market price reaches a set threshold. You can combine a guaranteed stop loss with dealCancellation to shield yourself from losses in the first hour.
  • Negative balance protection: if your trades become loss-making, easyMarkets will close these positions before your account's balance becomes negative. Negative balance protection ensures you never loose more money than you invest. It is also known as a 'margin call'.
  • Fixed spreads and no 'slippage': the price you see is the price you get.
