Transaction sizes

On the Reymount dealing platform, all trades are sized in units of 100,000 of the base currency, called 'lots'. The maximum deal size available online depends on the margin availability.


Trading Minimums

Reymount's minimum transaction size is 1 lot, or 100,000 of the base currency, with a minimum margin deposit of 2%. For example, a US$100,000 position would require an initial margin deposit of US$2,000.


Fees

Reymount charges minimal trading commissions, regardless of account balance or trading activity.


Price Quotes

Reymount clients have the ability to execute trades directly from real time streaming bid/ask quotes. Live prices are continuously published to clients via Reymount's Java-enabled dealing software, and traders can at any time click on the current bid or offer and instantaneously execute a trade. Prices are updated automatically as market conditions dictate. Reymount publishes the same dealing price to the entire client base and allows any client to deal on the available price.


Trading over the Internet.

Executing a deal with Reymount via the internet is a simple two-step process. Simply enter the number of lots and than click on the bid (buy) or offer (sell) for the commodity you wish to trade - your deal is automatically executed. The dealing software automatically calculates the initial margin requirement based upon the notional amount of the deal, and if sufficient funds are available in your account, will accept the transaction. Deals are confirmed online, normally within a second, and the system instantaneously updates both your open position and calculates your current profit and loss.


Order Types Reymount's dealing platform provides sophisticated order entry and tracking. Order may be entered at any rate - inside or outside the existing spread - using the following orders types:

Limit Orders

An order with restrictions on the maximum price to be paid or the minimum price to be received.

If a trader is long USD/CHF is 1.4627, a limit order would be entered to sell CHF below that price, for example, at 1.4600. This sell Limit to book a profit will hava to be palced at a price lesser than the market price.

Stop Loss orders

Order type whereby an open position is automatically liquidated at a specific price. Often used to minimize exposure to losses if the market moves against an investor's position.

  • If the trader above is long CHF at 1.4627, a stop loss order could be left at 1.4700.

  • As a rule, sell stops are filled on our bid, and buy stops are filled on our offer. This allows Reymount to fill client stop orders at the rate they requested in almost every case. In the rare instance that the market gaps over a requested rate, the stop is filled at the best available price. This is an important point for traders who are accustomed to being filled on sell stops when the offer reaches the requested order rate. For example, if a stop order is placed to sell USD/CHF at 1.4549, the trader will be filled when the bid reaches 1.4549 (i.e. the bid/offer is 1.4549/54).

All of the above orders may be entered as Day Orders, entered today and good until end of NY business day (1700 ET).


**Orders remain open until they are triggered or cancelled. If you close out a position manually, you must cancel any order (s) relating to that position.


Margin

Reymount's initial margin requirement is 1%. This margin requirement is subject to change without prior notice depending on the market condition. The system performs an automatic pre-deal check for margin availability, and will only execute the deal if the client has sufficient margin funds in his or her account. Additional margin is required when a client's initial margin drops in the value by 50 %

Based on the value of any open positions. Reymount reserves the right to liquidate any open positions should a client's initial margin drop by 75%. This is an important risk management strategy for both Reymount and our client ; it ensures that clients do not lose more than their account balance.


Rollovers

A rollover is the simultaneous closing of an opening position for today's value date, ( normally at the end of the trading day ) and the opening of the same positions for the next day's value date at a price reflecting the interest rate differential between the two currencies. Clients either earn or pay away points on rollovers, depending on the direction of their positions and the interest rate differential between the two currencies involved.

Reymount automatically rolls forward all open positions to the next day's value date following the close of NY trading at 1700 ET.


Storage

Clients either earn or pay on overnight rollovers, depending on the direction of their positions. Open trades are rolled forward in the base currency of the position.
