Frequently asked questions

Account information

No, it is not possible to hide an account. If the account balance is 10 USD or less and there were no login attempts made for 90 days, then it will be automatically archived by the system and it will no longer be visible in the Client Area.

From Wednesday to Thursday swaps are charged at a triple rate – this is a standard in the forex industry. A triple swap is charged only for the positions that are held (or opened) on Wednesday and are kept overnight, and this swap covers the interest for Saturday and Sunday as well. All swaps are calculated based on the second currency. 1 pip value for 1 lot on EURUSD is 10 USD, GBPUSD – 10 USD, EURAUD – 10 AUD, EURJPY – 1000 Yen.

We update the swaps based on the rates given to us by our counterparties and we recommend checking the swap rates on a regular basis.

As the legislation stipulates, we must keep all trading accounts in our system for at least seven years.

We can set your account on the Read-only mode and stop sending you documents.

Trading conditions

We offer floating spreads for all account types – Classic, Pro, and VIP. The Classic account offers variable spreads, starting from 1.6 pips with no commissions. Both Pro and VIP accounts offer variable spreads, starting from 0.0 pips with low commissions.
You can check out our spreads at our web page an instrument from the table and click on it) or at the MT4 trading platform.

We do not offer MT4 MultiTerminal. If you wish, you can install multiple MT4 platforms and place them in different folders. Please download the MT4 platform from our website:

You can download historical data from the MT4 trading platform, by clicking on: Tools > History Centre – then choose a trading instrument and finally press the ‘Download’ button. History will then be available on your trading platform, so you can click on: File > Open offline > Open Offline Chart. Please note that the longer the time frame, the longer the available history will be. For example, M5 history is available for 1.5 weeks, M15 history for 1 month, etc.

You can set Stop Loss and Take Profit orders with no limits on all account types. SL and TP orders will still be active, even if your computer is switched off. The minimum Trailing Stop level is 1.5 pips or 15 points. It is possible to set only 1 trailing stop per order. You need to have the MT4 platform open to keep the trailing stop active.

Currently, we do not provide tick data, as MT4 is not able to store all ticks. Therefore, the tick data would not be accurate. There is an option for the server to store tick data, but we do not use it, as it is not able to store 100% of the ticks. In addition, that would slow down the server considerably due to a large amount of data, as the ticks are not filtered.

We offer FIX API connection to our large private clients and institutional clients. The minimum account balance required is 100,000 £$€ and the minimum monthly trading volume required is 2,000 lots. There are no other requirements or fees. We are not offering a demo version. If a client trades 2,000 lots per month, then we do not charge any fees for using it. However, if a client does not reach 2,000 lots, then a 1,000£$€ fee applies.

Traders who use the maximum leverage available face the risk of a negative balance.
For example: Let’s assume that you have 200 USD on your account and you open 1 lot on USDJPY on Friday evening, with 1:500 leverage and 200 USD margin.

On Sunday night, the market opens 30 pips away from Friday’s closing price in a direction against you, so your position will immediately have a loss of 30 pips x 10 USD = 300 USD loss, while you have only 200 USD on your account.

The position will be automatically closed and your account would have a negative balance of -100 USD. This situation is 100% impossible when a trader uses 1:1 leverage. The higher leverage a trader uses, the more risks they take. Please also note that a negative balance may occur due to a slippage during high volatility.

Our Risk department is constantly monitoring our clients’ risk-taking and if we see that a client trades irresponsibly, then we will notify the client via e-mail and ask them to reduce risk exposure. Also, we might reduce the leverage on the client’s account.

Negative balance protection is not guaranteed. The general practice is that we cover the negative balance, but all cases are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

The minimum amount to start trading on the AutoTrade account is 1,000 $€£. Trading terms are the same as on the Pro, except for a 0.6 pip markup per side (1.2 pips in total). For example, if you trade 1 lot on EURUSD, then your total cost is = a commission of 4 euros + 1.2 pip spread. EA and manual trading are allowed on Myfxbook AutoTrade accounts.

Hart Markets Ltd is incorporated in St. Vincent & the Grenadines as an International Business Company with the registration number 24633 IBC 2018.

HartFX is a NDD broker, which means that we just clear our clients’ trades and retranslate quotes we get from our liquidity providers. Orders in the real market are always executed at current market prices, which is why a slippage may occur in the case of a sharp movement. Please note, that during market-moving news or high volatility, the risk of slippage is higher than during normal conditions. With us, you will get both positive and negative slippages.

Hedging is allowed (arbitrage trading). The required margin for hedging positions on Classic, Pro, and VIP accounts is 0. Scalping is also allowed. There are no time limitations for keeping the positions open.

The minimum leverage is 1:1. The maximum and default leverage is 1:500.

Metal leverage:
The leverage for gold is equal to the account leverage, while the leverage for silver is 4 times lower than the account leverage. If the trading account has a leverage of 1:500, then the leverage for gold will be 1:500 and the leverage for silver will be 1:100

Our margin call / stop out levels are – 100/30%. Your account may be subject to a margin call if your account equity falls to a level that is equal to the margin of your existing positions. For example, you have an open position of 1 lot on EURUSD. The margin to hold that position is 200 EUR.

When you opened the account, you had a 400 EUR equity on your account. When the position starts to move against you and your account equity falls to 200 EUR, you will have a margin call. But your position will not be closed yet. When your account equity falls to 30% of the required margin, then the system starts to close your positions immediately.

Taking the above example, if you open a position with 200 EUR of margin and your account equity falls to 60 EUR, then the system starts to close your position. If you have several positions opened, then the system closes them starting from the one with the biggest loss.

If, while closing the positions, your account equity reaches a level of more than 30% of the required margin, all other positions will remain open.

Our average execution speed is around 100 milliseconds.

The minimum trade size is 0.01 lot and the maximum trade size is 100 lots. The maximum amount of orders you can open on an MT4 account is 200.
