  • My Card payment is being declined why is this?

    When making a deposit the card being used must have the same registered address as the address which we hold for you.  If the addresses are the same and this is the first time you are using this card with us we would advise that you contact your bank to inform them that you are planning on making a deposit with us. On occasion banks will decline the initial deposit in order to complete a security check with the card holder.

    Once you have contacted your bank they will remove the block and you should then be able to process the transaction successfully.

  • Where to find your overall profit or loss on a position

    This will depend on the trading platform which you are using;

    ETX TraderPro

    • Look for the ‘Open Positions’ tab on the lower half of your screen. You will see a list of your current positions, including the date and time they were opened, the quantity ‘bought’ or ‘sold’, the margin reserved and the price of the product in question at the open of the trade as well as its current price.
    • The ‘P/L’ column next to it shows the current level of profit or loss. If the trade is currently in profit, the amount shown will be in white. If the position is currently trading at a loss, the figure will be shown in red. On the right there are buttons giving the trader the option of seeing a product chart, creating a new alert, trading further on the product in question, or closing the trade.

    ETX Binary

    • Look for the ‘Open Positions’ tab on the lower half of your screen. You will see a list of your current positions, including the option type, the asset in question as well as the time the position was opened and the price at which it was opened, the amount put into the trade, its current status and a clock counting down to its expiry time.
    • It then shows you the current pay-out you can expect if the trade remains in its current position – and in some cases, you’ll also see the amount and percentage you’ll receive if you choose to close the trade early, which you can do by clicking either the ‘buy’ or ‘sell’ button on the right  hand side of the open trade.

    ETX MT4

    • The open trades can be found in the terminal window of the MT4 platform. This is most often found if you look at the bottom of the screen. Should it not be visible on your platform the terminal window can be added to your view by clicking 'view' in the menu at the top. By selecting the 'trade' tab you are able to see your open trades, as well as your current account balance.
    • You will see the relevant details of your trades (time opened, type, size, symbol, price). You can click on a specific trade and a window will open, giving you options which include allowing you to close the trade.

  • My charts are not working, why is this?

    If you're using Google Chrome , one reason why your charts may not be working could be because your pop up blocker is restricting your access. You cannot launch a chart in a new window whilst using Google Chrome due to Chrome interpreting the launch of the new window as a pop up advert, thus blocking it.

    To prevent this please complete the below steps:

    • Click the menu button in the top right corner of the Chrome browser.
    • Select options to generate a new tab
    • Click Under the Hood
    • Click Content settings followed by selecting Manage Exceptions which is within the Pop-ups section
    • Add ?trade.etxcapital.com? as an exception
    • Close the window to finish

  • How do I install MT4 on my MAC?

    Please follow our step by step download guide​ below.

    The following user guide has been published by MetaQuotes Software Corp. on 2 July 2012:

    Introduction

    Apple products have become very popular. MetaQuotes Software Corp. attentively follows the progress of the IT industry and has already released the special mobile applications for iOS-based devices - MetaTrader 4 for iPhone and MetaTrader 5 for iPhone.

    There are many topics on the MQL4.community forum, where people are seeking a solution for running MetaTrader 4 under the Mac OS operating system. In this article, you will find out how to work in MetaTrader 4 via the Apple's popular operating system.


    Installing Wine on Mac OS

    Wine is a free software that allows users of the Unix-based systems to run an application developed for the Microsoft Windows systems. Among all the Wine versions there is one for Mac OS.

    Note that Wine is not a fully stable application. Thus, some functions in the applications you start under it may work improperly or not work at all.

    For the installation on Mac OS we recommend to use the free application PlayOnMac. PlayOnMac is a Wine-based software for easy installation of Windows applications on Mac OS.

     

    PlayOnMac Installation

    To install PlayOnMac, open the product's official web site, move to Downloads section and click the link for downloading the latest version.

    Downloading PlayOnMac

    After downloading the DMG package, launch it from Downloads section of your system:

    Launching PlayOnMac installation

    PlayOnMac first launch window will appear. After clicking "Next", the installer will start checking and installing the various components necessary for work.

    PlayOnMac first launch

    The first necessary component is XQuartz. This is a software for using X Window System on Mac OS. X Window System provides standard tools and protocols for building the graphical user interface in Unix-like OS.

    Installing XQuartz

    If you have already installed XQuartz or want to install it later, select "Don't install XQuartz for the moment" or "I've downloaded file by myself", respectively.

    XQuartz installation is performed in several stages. First of all, you should read the important information (Read Me) and accept the license conditions.

    Installing XQuartz

    Before the installation, Mac OS security system will ask you to enter your account's password:

    Installing XQuartz

    Wait for the installation to complete. For changes to take effect, you should restart your PC.

    Completing XQuartz installation

    After restarting the system, launch PlayOnMac again from the setup file in Downloads folder. The first launch window will appear again. This time, the installer will offer to install MS Windows fonts necessary for correct operation.

    Installing fonts

    Accept the license agreement conditions and wait till the installation is complete. After that, PlayOnMac is ready for use. Its main window will appear:

    PlayOnMac main window

     

    Updating Wine

    Wine v. 1.4 is installed together with PlayOnMac. Wine 1.4.1 is the latest stable version at the moment. Wine 1.5.21 beta release containing many improvements is also available for download. However, it may be less stable. It is recommended to install the latest version of Wine.

    To upgrade Wine to the latest version, open PlayOnMac upper menu and select Manage Wine Versions:

    Manage Wine versions

    The window with Wine versions available for installation will open. Select the latest version (1.5.21 at the moment).

    Wine versions available for installation

    Move the latest Wine version to the right side of the window. The installation will start.

    Updating Wine to the latest version

    After the installation is complete, the new version of Wine will appear in the left part of PlayOnMac Wine versions manager window. You can then close the window and install MetaTrader 4 trading terminal.

     

    MetaTrader 4 Installation

    To install MetaTrader 4, download the distribution package from www.metatrader4.com official web site. Go to Download section and click "Download free".

    Downloading MetaTrader 4 distribution package

    After the download is complete, launch the setup file. PlayOnMac will be used automatically to open it.

    Installing MetaTrader 4

    The standard terminal installation process with all its stages will start:

    Installing MetaTrader 4

    When the installation is complete, PlayOnMac will offer you to create the shortcuts for MetaTrader 4 terminal components - the client terminal itself and MetaEditor:

    Creating shortcuts

    After creating the necessary shortcuts, you can start using MetaTrader 4. Double click on it in PlayOnMac window to launch the terminal.

    Installed MetaTrader 4 terminal

    Below you can see MetaTrader 4 terminal on Mac OS:

    MetaTrader 4 on Mac OS


    Known Issues

    As it has been already mentioned above, Wine is not a completely stable software. Thus, some functions of the MetaTrader 4 terminal may work improperly. The following issues are currently discovered:

    • News are not displayed, in case they contain Unicode symbols. News in English are displayed correctly.
    • Market is unavailable

    Except for the above problems, you can enjoy all the features of MetaTrader 4 on Mac OS.

     

    MetaTrader 4 Data Directory

    PlayOnMac creates a separate virtual logical drive with necessary environment for each installed program. The default path of the installed terminal's data folder is as follows:

    Library\PlayOnMac\WinePrefix\MetaTrader_4_\Drive C\Program Files\MetaTrader 4

     

    Conclusion

    In this article we described a fast and easy way to run the most popular application for Forex trading in Mac OS. We hope that this article, or - to be more precise - the comments to it, will become a good place for accumulating useful information about running MetaTrader 4 under this operating system.

  • What are Binary options?

    Binary trading generally gives traders the chance to choose between two different possible outcomes for a specific product (in its most common format, whether a given product will increase or decrease in value); although in practice someone trading binary options will have the ability to make further choices regarding the outcome of their trade. Unlike many other forms of trading, with Binary Options you cannot lose more than you put down on a trade, with the potential risk/reward clearly being stated prior to the beginning of the contract. That being said, it is possible to close a trade before its given expiry time, with the profit or loss level consequently higher or lower than originally expected.

    A Stop or Limit that you have set on your position has been reached and executed. Your position has been closed due to a margin call. If your "Trade Funds Available" figure has slipped into the negative, add funds to your account or close your current position. Doing nothing will result in the Risk Department closing (or partially closing) your position. Alternatively, you may have been trading on a futures contract and its expiration date has been reached. You may call us before the contract's expiration to roll the contract over to the next expiration date.

  • What is Leverage?

    Leverage offers large exposure for a much smaller amount, known as the 'margin requirement'. This means using borrowed capital to supplement an investment. The amount is the potential relationship between profit or loss, and your margin requirement. Leverage is the reason why losses can exceed your deposits. For that reason, a position with higher leverage could make or lose a large amount from a small initial cost. Increasing leverage increases risk.

  • What are your overnight financing charges?

    • Equities, Indices, Commodities: 
    Total Position Size x 3.5% / 365 – Let’s take Barclays as an example. 
    Total Position size (exposure) - £10000 x 3.5% (Libor + 3) = £350 / 365 = 95p per day in Financing. Please note that for a weekend roll the charge is only applied once but the underlying market spread will be bigger as you are rolling a position for 3 days as opposed to just one. 
    FX: 
    The interest calculation is based on the currencies involved in the trade you have open. The ETX charge is based and calculated on the underlying exchange rate at 20:00 hrs, both are then applied to the size of position(s) you have running and overnight interest is either debited or credited as a ledger entry on your a/c on a daily basis on any open positions held. 

    The overnight funding is derived from the funding charges paid to maintain an open position in the underlying interbank foreign exchange markets often referred to as the Tom/next (tomorrow/next day borrowing, 'swap' or 'swap points') i.e. it is a tradeable market in swaps that moves with interest rate expectations and supply and demand in a similar way to the spot market moves although short dated swaps are traded at the front end of the curve and are very small spreads/”pips” usually to 5 and 6 decimal places
    Also, please note that the underlying market swap rates change and are not fixed so charges may vary and will change when the factors that are used to derive them change, whereas the ETX charge is fixed at 0.0054 % and is competitive when compared to other market participants. Overnight Financing can be accrued or charged depending on the direction of the trade and the intrument that is being traded.

  • Why does it take longer to withdraw funds than to deposit them?

    When you deposit funds the Company chooses to give you immediate credit in your trading account, even though the transfers through many payment systems take much longer to complete. When returning funds the Company will always endeavour to process client withdrawals within two business days, however in some cases this process can take longer. We  are also unable to influence the speed at which the banking or credit card processing systems deliver the funds to your account(s). If the funds have not been received within seven working days please call Client Support and we will attempt to trace the payment(s) on your behalf. In order to guard against financial crime, we may also ask you for further information/documentation before we process your withdrawal, which can mean the process takes longer than usual.
