No matter if you’re a newbie trader or an advanced one, there is something for you at Switch Markets.

If you’re new to trading and need to build your confidence, then start with a demo account. You can trade with up to $50,000 and experience real market conditions. When you’re ready to trade with us in the real world, you can switch to a live trading account. Just like that.

Free VPS for all live accounts

That’s right, you heard us correctly, we offer our live trading account customers a free VPS if they want it. Using a Virtual Private Server is ideal if you are an Algo Trader looking to leave your EA running when you’re not at your desk.

To get your free VPS, all you need to do is let our support team know once your Switch Markets account is live and we'll get you set up.

Knowing you can reach your broker 24/7 is what peace of mind is all about and it’s something often overlooked by traders when choosing their broker. Contact Switch Markets support team 24/7 via email support@switchmarkets.com or by chatting with us on our 24/7 live chat in the bottom right corner.

Why spreads matter

Spreads matter, especially for intraday traders and for scalpers. To be a successful trader, you need to monitor the spreads closely. Here’s what ‘High Spreads’ and ‘Low Spreads’ are telling you.

High Spreads

When you see the difference between the bid and ask price is high, this is likely showing you that the market is experiencing low liquidity or high volatility. Non-major forex pairs often have a higher spread, compared to major forex pairs.

Low Spreads

When you see the difference between the bid and ask price is low, this is likely showing you that the market is experiencing low volatility or high liquidity. You’ll often see low spreads with major forex trading pairs.

Trading hours

There’s always a market for you to trade.

With Switch Markets, there’s always a market to trade. Check our table below and you’ll see which markets are open when.

You can easily find the trading hours inside your MetaTrader terminal too. To do this, click "Market Watch" inside your terminal and then click on Specification; this will show you the hours this instrument can be traded.

Swap rates

Control your Swap Rates with Switch Markets.

So, what are Swap Rates?

You’d be surprised how many traders don’t know about Swap Rates and how to control them. In a nutshell, the ‘Swap’ means that if you keep your trading positions open overnight, you could have some fees to pay your broker.

How is the forex swap rate calculated?

As you know, Forex trading is the buying or selling of a country’s currency, against the currency of another country. Brokers enable you to execute the trade and then ‘swap’ the currency back again, at another time.

The forex swap rate is calculated on the difference between the interest rate between the two currencies you are trading.

When you don’t ‘swap’ the currency back with a broker at the end of the trading day (5 pm GMT time), there is a fee or credit involved and the brokers allow you to hold your open position overnight.

For traders, this can either be a fee or a credit back to you, this all depends on the currency pair you are trading and the interest rate performance.

What you need to know :

  • Swap Rates are applied every trading day at midnight, on any open positions.
  • Swap Rates are especially important to traders that hold their positions overnight.
  • Swap Rates mean you could end up with a fee for holding your trade, or, a credit (depending on the interest difference).
  • On a Wednesday, the rates tend to be triple the amount compared with other trading days (to accommodate for the weekend).
  • Swap Rates will show as ‘points’ inside MT4/MT5, these points are then converted into your account currency.
  • Each currency pair has its own rollover fee.
  • Most traders do not know about the Swap Rates when trading with any broker.
