CFD Order Types
For all account types, InterForex supports the following Order Types:

Market Order (Buy/Sell)
An order buy or sell the leading currency in a currency pair at the current market price. For example, for the EURUSD (Euro v. US Dollar) currency pair, an order to Buy (at the "Ask" price) buys Euro and sells the US Dollar. Conversely, an order to Sell (at the "Bid" price) sells the Euro and buys the US Dollar.

A "Trader Range" can be set when opening a position (executing a Market Order). The "Trader Range" is the difference, in pips, from the current market price that the trader is willing to accept if the market moves while the trade is being processed.

Entry Stop / Stop
A "conditional" order to buy or sell a currency (in a currency pair) when a specific price target is reached. A buy Entry Stop order will buy the leading currency in a currency pair when the Ask price reaches a target that is above the current price, and a sell Entry Stop order will sell the leading currency in a currency pair when the Bid price reaches a target that is below the current price.

An Entry Stop / Stop order is usually used to limit the loss on a specific position.

Entry Limit / Limit
A "conditional" order to buy or sell a currency (in a currency pair) when a specific price target is reached, and the opposite of an Entry Stop or Stop order. A buy Entry Limit order will buy the leading currency in a currency pair when the Ask price reaches a target that is below the current price, and a sell Entry Limit order will sell the leading currency in a currency pair when the Bid price reaches a target that is above the current price.

An Entry Limit / Limit order is usually used to buy or sell at pre-set advantageous levels, adding to an existing position or taking a profit. Limit orders are useful to prevent a trader from "marrying" a position, or being unable to take the profit at the right price.

Hedging Positions
A position is "hedged" when a position is opened in the opposite direction of an already-open position.

Close Position
An order that closes a position at the current market price.

Close Position with Hedge
An order that closes an existing position and opens a new position counter to it.

All orders are good until cancelled, except in special situations such as a Margin Call.
CFD Margin Requirements
InterForex guarantees limited risk. If the equity in the account drops below the margin required to maintain the open positions, all open positions may be liquidated by the dealing desk at the market price.

This protects the trader from losing more than the funds deposited into the trading account. InterForex clients can never have a negative balance.

InterForex offers some of the most flexible margin requirements in the financial services industry. The following are the minimum deposit requirements for accounts with InterForex:

We're able to offer these astonishingly low margin requirements due to the efficiency of our online trading system. Our policy is that once an account can not support the minimum margin required to finance its positions-i.e. the account's equity falls below the required margin for all open positions, all open positions are closed in real-time. The trading system also provides for the protection of client account balances in the event of rapid price movements.

Traders are able to monitor both usable margin and used margin in real-time from the "Account Information" window of the online trading platform. Positions are automatically closed once usable margin hits or drops below zero.

InterForex encourages clients to avoid margin calls by either using stop loss orders or maintaining adequate funds in the account relative to position size.
