Frequently asked questions
Here are our most frequently asked questions about trading indices with Exness.
Why is there increased margin on indices at certain times of the day?
We introduced periods of increased margin and reduced leverage to protect you from potential adverse price action due to increased market volatility in indices trading. We also extended our trading sessions for indices, to give you greater opportunity to trade with the standard margin requirements.
What are your rules for pending orders, stop loss (SL), and take profit (TP)?
The following rules apply when it comes to setting levels for pending orders:
Pending orders along with SL and TP (for pending orders) must be set at a distance (at least the same as current spread or more) from the current market price.
SL and TP in pending orders must be set at least the same distance from the order price as the current spread.
For open positions, SL and TP must be set at a distance from the current market price which is at least the same as that of the current spread.
How do you deal with price gaps?
At Exness, we know how it feels when your pending order falls in a price gap, so it’s only fair that we guarantee no slippage for virtually all pending orders that are executed at least 3 hours after trading opens for an instrument. However, if your order meets any of the following criteria, it will be executed at the first market quote that follows the gap:
If your pending order is executed in market conditions that are not normal, such as during a period of low liquidity or high volatility.
If your pending order falls in a gap but the difference in pips between the first market quote (after the gap) and the requested price of the order is equal to or exceeds a certain number of pips (gap level value) for a particular instrument.
Gap level regulation applies to specific trading instruments.
