New currency pairs are available

Friday 14th of March 2014

FinFX is happy to announce that 3 new currency pairs have been added to MT4 platform, to both the Demo and Live accounts. However, please note that the new pairs are currently available on demo, ECN Pro and PAMM accounts. Starting from next week you can also trade them on Micro and ECN accounts.

The following pairs were added:

USDZAR: US Dollar - South African Rand
USDZAR has been the most requested currency pair by FinFX clients. We believe this is because its relatively high interest rates make ZAR a popular carry trade currency.

USDPLN: US Dollar - Polish Zloty
The USDPLN is the most popular pair to trade the Polish currency due to its high volatility. In addition, since FinFX has recently gained some ground in the Eastern Europe, this pair was also among the most requested ones.

USDCNH: CNH is an offshore version of the CNY (Chinese RMB)
The explosive growth in China over the past decade has transformed it into one of the largest economies in the world making it a force in international finance. FinFX added the USDCNH pair, so investors outside of mainland China can now trade on the growth and volatility inherent in an economy that continues to be one of the world's fastest-growing.

Starting from Monday 17th March 2014, IC Markets will be implementing new trading times for their Forex and Metals products around the rollover period and start of the week on their MT4 platform.

Start of the week

IC Markets will now begin streaming prices at Market open on Monday morning from 00:03:00 platform time.

What is the rollover period?

Rollover, otherwise known as 'end of day' (EOD) and 'value date change' occurs daily at 00:00 platform time, 17:00 EST, 22:00 GMT and 00:00 platform time, 17:00 EDT, 22:00 BST during daylight savings in the northern hemisphere.

During the rollover period two things happen.

Positions are 'rolled' to the next value date. It is during this process that swaps are applied to positions
Liquidity providers (banks mainly) restart their FIX engines and can be offline for seconds to minutes.
Due to their being less liquidity providers streaming prices it is normal to see wider spreads and even erratic price action over this period.

New trading times

At present IC Markets disable pricing and trading across their Forex and Metals products for 45 seconds. This short break takes place between 23:59:45 and 00:00:30 platform time, right at rollover.

Starting from Monday 17th March 2014, they will be disabling pricing and trading across their Forex and Metals products for four minutes over the rollover period. Please refer to the new trading times below.

Trading ends: 23:58:59 platform time
16:58:59 EDT
20:58:59 GMT
Trading starts: 00:03:00 platform time
17:03:00 EDT
21:03:00 GMT



Additional changes to Metals trading times

Metals: XAUUSD, XAGUSD, XAUEUR, XAGEUR

Starting from Monday 17th March 2014, IC Markets will also be disabling pricing and trading across their Metals products for 45 minutes after rollover. This 45 minute break will take place from 00:15 to 01:00 platform time.

Through these changes IC Markets aim to eliminate the wide spreads and erroneous prices that are most prevalent over the rollover period, specifically the minute before and up to three minutes after, when many liquidity providers are offline.

Based on your requests, FinFX have added new liquidity providers in precious metals, which enable them to offer some of the lowest spot gold spreads in the industry. Now, all FinFX clients are able to trade XAUUSD with reduced cost and superior execution.

Diversify or hedge your FX portfolio by incorporating gold as an asset class.

How much was the spread reduced?

XAU/USD transaction costs decreased by over 25% (since January 2014) as a result of their new LP introductions.

If you have an existing FinFX Live Account, you can already start trading spot gold with improved spreads on your account without having to do anything extra. Alternatively, you can also open a new demo or a live account by clicking here.
