Margin and Leverage

By offering leverage up to 1:30 we open the path to the forex market for Retail traders. Using leverage means only a small initial outlay (margin) is required. The use of leverage can magnify gains but losses can also exceed your initial deposit.

IC Markets is able to offer some of the best pricing in the industry by aggregating quotes from over 25 different liquidity providers. This low pricing combined with unrivaled execution speeds makes IC Markets the preferred destination for day traders, scalpers and those using Expert Advisors (EAs).

Swap Rates

We offer long and short swap rates for all of our currency pairs and metals. Swap rates are determined by the overnight interest rate differential between the two currencies involved in the pair and whether the position is a buy ‘long’ or sell ‘short’.
