  • ASK/Ask Price:

    (Offer Price) The lowest price available in the market to pay in order to buy a security, with the corresponding available size usually indicated alongside it.

  • Asset:

    (An ‘Instrument’). Any tradable security, currency, commodity, index, or derivative of those, whose value fluctuates in line with changing market conditions.

  • At Best:

    An order to buy or sell an asset at the best available price (or prices) on offer, until the order gets completely filled.

  • At or Better:

    An order to buy (or sell) an asset at the best available price up (or down) to a specific level.

  • Available Line:

    The total amount available to trade; this will be a function of the funds available in the account and the leverage used.

  • Averaging Down:

    The process of incrementally building a long position by adding more purchased of an asset at a decreasing price, thereby lowering the average price paid for it.

  • Balance:

    The total amount of funds available in the account before the opening of new positions.

  • Bar Chart:

    A type of financial chart, typically used in technical analysis, which summarises the most important levels of an asset for a selected timeframe. The top of the bar indicates the highest price, and the bottom the lowest. A mark on the left of the bar corresponds to the opening price, and another one on the right to the closing price.

  • Base Currency:

    The first currency quoted in a currency pair quotation. For example, in a ‘EUR/USD = 1.0580’ quote, the base currency is the euro and the price denotes the amount of U.S. dollars it can buy.

  • Bear Market:

    A market environment in which asset prices fall and widespread pessimism prevails. A general rule of thumb associates the onset of a bear market with losses of 20% or more from a market peak.

  • Bid/Ask Spread:

    The distance between the Bid and Ask prices. The size of the spread depends on the underlying asset and it typically remains constant under normal market conditions.

  • Bitcoin:

    A digital currency and payment system first created by an as of yet unidentified programmer in 2009. It’s often referred to as a cryptocurrency, because it’s not operated or regulated by a central authority, but depends instead on encryption techniques for the generation of new units of currency and the transfer of funds. Since its creation, bitcoin has experienced enormously high volatility and has thus attracted significant interest as a speculative investment instrument.

  • Bull Market:

    A market environment in which asset prices rise and widespread optimism prevails. A general rule of thumb associates the onset of a bull market with gains of 20% or more from a market trough.

  • Buy Limit:

    A conditional order to buy a specified amount of units of an asset, triggered only if its price falls to a specified level, lower than the current market level. For example, for the ‘EUR/USD = 1.0580/85’ currency pair quote, an investor could place a buy limit order at 1.0550. The buy limit order will only get filled if the market drops to or below that level.

  • Buy Stop:

    A conditional order to buy a specified amount of units of an asset, triggered only if its price rises to a specified level, higher than the current market level. For example, for the ‘EUR/USD = 1.0580/85’ currency pair quote, an investor could place a buy stop order at 1.0630. If the market rises to or above that level, the buy stop order will become a market order and will be executed until it’s completely filled.

  • Candlestick Chart:

    A type of financial chart, typically used in technical analysis, which summarises the most important levels of an asset for a selected timeframe. Candlesticks are composed of the body, which measures a distance between the opening and the closing prices, and the wick, which extends to the lowest and the highest prices for the specified timeframe. The candlestick body varies (in fill or in colour) depending on whether the price of the asset increased or decreased during the period represented.

  • CFD (Contract for Difference):

    A derivative financial instrument which tracks the price movements of an underlying asset. It allows traders to take positions on the underlying asset without actually owning it. A CFD is essentially a contract between a client and a broker, whereby the former agrees to pay (or receive from) the latter the difference between the price at which the trade was entered and the one at which it was closed.

  • Closed Position:

    A position that has been closed or liquidated, upon selling (or buying back) the exact outstanding amount of a long (or short) open position.

  • Commodities:

    An asset class which includes precious and industrial metals, fuels, and agricultural products traded in bulk on a commodity exchange. Examples include gold, silver, oil, natural gas, coffee, and sugar.

  • Counter Currency:

    The second currency quoted in a currency pair quotation, traded against the base currency. Also known as “quote currency”. For example, in a ‘EUR/USD = 1.0580’ quote, the counter currency is the U.S. dollar, and the price denotes the amount a single euro can buy of it.

  • Day Trader:

    A trader with an extremely short investment horizon, not exceeding a day. This type of trader typically liquidates all outstanding positions before the end of the trading session, and thus carries no trading risk overnight.

  • Deficit:

    A negative balance, typically denoting a shortage of funds.

  • Economic Indicators:

    A set of monthly statistics widely followed by traders, because they generally indicate the health of an economy. They are typically released by a government agency or body. The most closely watched economic indicators include figures of unemployment, GDP, inflation, manufacturing and services indices, and retail sales.

  • Equity:

    The remaining value of an account if all open positions were liquidated under current market prices.

  • Gross Domestic Product (GDP):

    The total economic output of a country, as measured by the current value of all goods and services produced in it, for a specified period of time. Typically, GDP is quoted on an annualised basis.

  • Gross National Product (GNP):

    A country’s Gross Domestic Product plus the net income from foreign investments.

  • Hedging:

    The action of protecting existing positions from the potential impact of adverse future market price moves.

  • Index:

    A theoretical basket or portfolio of financial assets, such as stocks or bonds. The underlying components can be represented by equal or varying weights. The most widely followed stock indices include the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 in the U.S., the Eurostoxx-50 in Europe, the FTSE-100 in the U.K., and the Nikkei in Japan.

  • Instant Execution:

    An effort by the platform to execute a transaction at the current market price quoted. When the desired price is no longer available, in case of a fast market, a “re-quote” takes place, during which the broker send the trader a new price, at which the trade can be executed. There typically is a maximum deviation between the desired execution price the trader requires and the prevailing market level.

  • Leverage:

    The use of borrowed capital allowing traders to take on significantly larger positions than the amount of funds they have available. The use of leverage can magnify both the potential returns as well as the potential losses in a trading account, and the maximum degree allowable will depend on the broker, the financial asset and the prevailing market conditions. Leverage is usually quoted as a ratio, e.g. 50:1 or 200:1.

  • Limit Order:

    A conditional order to buy a specified amount of units of an asset, triggered only if its price falls to a specified level, lower than the current market level. For example, for the ‘EUR/USD = 1.0580/85’ currency pair quote, an investor could place a buy limit order at 1.0550. The buy limit order will only get filled if the market drops to or below that level.

  • Line Chart:

    A type of financial chart which plots the price movements of a financial asset over time for a specified timeframe.

  • Long Position:

    An open position on a financial asset, which will generate profits if the market price for that asset rises.

  • Lot:

    The normal, standardised unit of trading for a financial asset. For example, a lot may represent 100 shares of a given stock.

  • Market Execution:

    The execution of an order at the best available prices until it’s completely filled.

  • Margin:

    The amount of funds required to be in the trading account in order to maintain the current open positions on it. Margin is typically expressed as a percentage and is essentially the inverse of leverage. For example, a 50:1 leverage represents trading on a 2% margin and it would translate in holding a $100,000 market exposure with a deposit of $2,000.

  • Margin Call:

    A request from the broker for additional funds to be deposited in the client’s account in order to cover margin requirements, typically triggered by adverse market movements.

  • Open Order:

    Typically a conditional order, such as a limit buy order, which hasn’t yet been filled in the market and remains in effect until it expires, gets executed in the market, or gets canceled by the trader.

  • Open P&L:

    The total profit or loss resulting from all open positions being closed at current market prices.

  • Open Position:

    An existing position in the market which hasn’t yet been closed or liquidated.

  • Option:

    A derivative contract of an underlying financial asset, which gives its buyer the right (but not the obligation) to buy or sell the underlying at a predetermined price level, at or prior to a pre-agreed date in the future.

  • Order:

    An instruction to the broker to execute a financial transaction under specific market conditions.

  • Over the Counter:

    A financial transaction which doesn’t take place on a regulated exchange.

  • Pending Order:

    A conditional order which hasn’t yet been filled in the market due to a difference between a trader’s set conditions and the prevailing market levels; an open order. Four types of pending orders exist; buy limit, sell limit, buy stop, and sell stop. A pending order will remain in place until it expires, gets canceled by the trader, or gets executed in the market.

  • PIP:

    A “percentage in point” (pip) is the smallest possible change of quotation, and it’s typically used in the foreign exchange market. Its size depends on market convention, but for most currency pairs it refers to the fourth decimal point.

  • Quote:

    An indicative market price, a quote typically refers to the pair of Bid and Ask prices for a tradable financial asset.

  • Quote Currency:

    See “Counter Currency”.

  • Range:

    The difference between the highest and the lowest traded prices for a financial asset during a specified trading timeframe.

  • Rate:

    The relative price of one currency against another.

  • Roll Over:

    The practice of extending a position which is about to expire to the next available expiry date. Rolling an existing position over will result in a new line of profit or loss.

  • Sell Limit:

    A conditional order to sell a specified amount of units of an asset, triggered only if its price rises to a specified level, higher than the current market level. For example, for the ‘EUR/USD = 1.0580/85’ currency pair quote, an investor could place a sell limit order at 1.0630. The sell limit order will only get filled if the market rises to or above that level.

  • Sell Stop:

    A conditional order to sell a specified amount of units of an asset, triggered only if its price falls to a specified level, lower than the current market level. For example, for the ‘EUR/USD = 1.0580/85’ currency pair quote, an investor could place a sell stop order at 1.0550. If the market falls to or below that level, the sell stop order will become a market order and will be executed until it’s completely filled.

  • Short Position:

    An open position on a financial asset, which will generate profits if the market price for that asset rises.

  • Spot Price:

    The current prevailing price in the market.

  • Spread:

    In general, the difference between two prices, either of the same or of different assets. Examples include the bid/ask spread or the spread between two bond yields.

  • Stop Loss Order:

    A conditional order employed to minimize a trader’s loss, should the price of a financial asset moves unfavourably to an existing position beyond a pre-determined level. Upon reaching the Stop Loss level, the order becomes active and the position is automatically closed at the best available prices.

  • Strike Price:

    A defined parameter in a derivative contract, it refers to the pre-agreed price level at which the buyer of the option can buy or sell the underlying asset.
