Daily trading break
There is a daily 5-minute break in trading from 23:58-00:03 server time. Clients are able to see the prices streaming during this break. No orders can be placed, nor any pre-existing orders can be executed during this time. This is done to protect the Stop Loss positions from getting hit by the potential spread spike, which may occur during the rollover time when Liquidity Providers reset their pricing for the new trading day at 00:00 server time (which is 17:00 New York City).
From 00:05 on Sunday to 23:55 on Friday, according to our server time (GMT+3).
Please note that our server Time is subject to Daylight Savings Time (DST), which begins on the last Sunday of March and ends on the last Sunday of October.
- Winter: GMT+2
- Summer: GMT+3 (DST)
The margin level is the percentage value based on the amount of accessible usable margin versus used margin. Technically, a 100% margin call level means that when your account margin level reaches 100%, you can still close your positions, but you cannot take any new ones.
When you’re about to hit a margin call, there will be a “red alert” on your MT4 platform. The margin call level is set to 100%.
A stop out level is a specific point at which some or all of your active trade positions will be closed automatically (starting from the biggest loser) because of a decrease in your margin levels, meaning we can no longer support those open positions. Currently, the stop out level is set to 30%.
Hedging is allowed and margin-free, but note that the spread may affect your big-sized hedged positions especially when it goes higher based on the news, daily trading break, or weekends. You must avoid larger hedged positions if you don’t have sufficient funds in your trading accounts. To avoid losses or risk due to unexpected wider spreads, maintain sufficient balances in your account, even if the account is fully hedged.

High/Low, Stops and Slippage
High and Low are recorded from the BID price on charts; your stop loss on buying positions will be executed at the bid price. And your stop on selling positions will be executed at ASK price.
Please note that Spreads may vary depending on the currency pairs and existing market conditions. For that reason, you may not see your stop level on the chart. For more details, visit Orders Execution Mechanism
You will not enter into any transactions which fall within the definition of scalping, sniper trading strategy, or automated data entry system. Accordingly, client transactions with short duration and with a win/loss ratio significantly in the client’s favor may be deemed as abusive trading and will not be allowed. In such circumstances, IMMFX reserves the right to void/cancel part of or all your abusive trading transactions, close any or all of your trading accounts, and terminate the Trader Agreement.
Price arbitrage strategies are prohibited and IMMFX determines, at its sole discretion, what determines a price arbitrage trading strategy.
Stop, buy stop, sell stop or take profits are executed at the next available price. For example, if you have a BUY position on GER30 at 11,000 with SL at 10,050 and TP at 11,050, if the market opened (after weekend or holiday) at 12,000, then your Take Profit will be triggered at the next available price which may be around 12,000. but if the market opened (after weekend or holiday) at 10,000, then your Stop Loss will be triggered at the next available price which may around 10,000.
Orders execution mechanism
The price on the chart is recorded from the BID Price, which is the selling price from your side and thus, the high/low prices are also taken from the BID Price. When you place a Take Profit order or a Stop Loss order, these orders get activated only if the BID price reaches the Price level of these orders. Additionally, if you want to sell you will sell from the BID price, and your Take Profit or Stop Loss order will be activated from the ASK price.
For Zero Account
The market orders and pending orders will be activated if the BID and ASK in MarketWatch reach the price level of your orders which is different than the charts due to Spread markup for Zero Account as an alternative to commissions applied in Prime Account.
The following are the markups per each symbol folder
The difference between the price that a trader determines on the trading platform and the price he/she actually gets is called a price slippage, which in many cases may reflect the true trading nature characterized by the field of margin trading in OTC markets and its complexity. This is also what distinguishes it from the simulated trading featured in demo accounts.
When a trader places pending orders on the platform, these orders are not passed to liquidity providers as pending limit orders. But when market prices reach the predefined price level on the platform, it translates into an immediate market order passed to the liquidity providers, who in turn execute the order according to the prices available in the market at that time. This matching process may take a few seconds or parts of a second, meaning prices that the liquidity providers execute may differ in varying degrees from those specified on the platform. This may cause concern or discomfort among some traders, especially those trading in the short term.
Therefore, when a trader places stop-loss, profit-taking orders, or any type of pending orders, including a market orders to open or close positions, price slippage is expected to occur through most trading hours. These slippages become more evident during sudden market movements following news and economic data releases, political statements, sudden entry of major participants, and the intervention of central banks.
Nevertheless, IMMFX strives to find liquidity providers that offer ultra-fast execution and we are also constantly looking to develop technology that contributes to minimizing price slippage. Accordingly, no trader can get the exact prices they see on the platform 100% of the time, regardless of which available type of order on the platform is used. Here are some examples of price slippage:
- If the current rate of the euro against the dollar is EURUSD = 1.17400 / 1.17420 and you want to buy at market price, you may get the price at 1.17427 and less or more depending on the market speed.
- When you place a stop-loss order at 1.16800, the stop-loss order may be activated at a lower rate than that, depending on the speed of the market decline.
- If you have an open buy trade at 1.17427 for example and the price rose to 1.17760 and you want to close this order then you may get the same price or less than it or more depending on the market speed as well if you put a stop-loss order at break-even (1.17247). Assuming that you will exit without losses, the execution may take place at a price lower than 1.17427, and therefore you may experience a slight loss.
- When you place a Buy Stop order at 1.18000 in the hope that it will open a new trade if the prices continue to rise, you may get 1.18010 or more depending on the speed of the rise, as is the case when you intend to sell a trade while prices are falling by placing your Sell Stop order.
The bottom line, here, is that slippage works against traders most of the time, especially those who trade in the short-term or on days when economic data is released. Therefore, all traders must accept the direct and indirect risks associated with OTC trading activity.
