Q:
What is the minimum trading lot size of USG?
A:
The minimum trading lot size is 0.01 lot.
Q:
Are there time limits for holding a position?
A:
There are no time limits for holding a position; however, when you hold a position past the closing time of a trading day (summer time: Beijing time 5:00; winter time 6:00), USG will automatically carry your position onto next trading day. Since all trades made with the USG is not delivered (no actual transaction taken place), all positions held overnight must be carry forth onto next trading day.
Q:
Why hasn’t the trailing stop-loss function register prices or why hasn’t the stop-loss function working?
A:
MetaTrader platform requires users to define their trailing stop-loss function; the setting value is saved on the customer’s computer but not on USG servers. If customers shut down their system or disconnects from the server, the trailing stop-loss function will not execute. Therefore, if users activate trailing stop-loss function on MetaTrader, it is vital not to shut down the system.

A:
GBP/USD, USD/JPY, EUR/USD, USD/CHF, EUR/GBP, USD/CAD, EUR/CHF, GBP/JPY, AUD/USD, CHF/JPY, EUR/AUD, GBP/CHF, AUD/JPY, CAD/JPY….
Q:
What is the spread of major currency pairs?
A:
The spread of major currencies is the smallest in the industry. However, when markets are in volatile fluctuations or when market trading is light, spread will change as market goes.
Q:
At what percentage, a Margin Call will take place?
A:
USG margin ratio is set to exercise a Margin Call when the percentage is under 100%. For example, a client possess 10,000 margin in USD, the leverage ratio is 1:100, the client open a position of 1 lot at USD/JPY, the margin required is USD 1000, it’s margin ratio is around 1000%; if the market goes against user’s position and the margin ratio dropped to equal or below 25%*, our system will automatically offset user’s all position at a reasonable price.
Q:
Why hasn’t the system execute my order at the stop-loss price I set up earlier?
A:
The purpose of giving certain orders (e.g. “stop-loss” or “stop-limit”) is to contain the loss at a certain amount, and it may not always be effective, because market conditions or technological limitations may result in unable to enforce such orders (in particular, when the market prices fluctuates quickly). Stop order is a pending order, when the price touches the order price; the stop order becomes a market order, therefore when market price fluctuates quickly (before and after major data release), although there are stop orders, it is still possible to execute at the market price due to drastic fluctuations of market price. We recommend customers to evaluate the risks of placing orders before major data releases.
Q:
How do I know which currency will go up or down?
A:
International currency prices are highly volatile and very difficult to predict. Due to such volatility, there is no system that can assure you that transactions on the foreign currency market should result in great benefits to you, nor is it possible to guarantee that your transactions would yield favorable results.
Q:
Why has the price of the deals I am interested in changed since the last time I checked?
A:
USG deals are dependent on the FX market, which is dynamic and changes all the time. The fluctuations in the market, in currency rates, and in other parameters, affect our fully automated pricing engine. This is why rates and premiums may change all the time. For your convenience, we developed the currency rates table which displays market data in real time and can give you an indication as to whether the rates are going up or down. When the rates in the bar are green it means they went up since the last update, when they are red it means they went down since the last update.
Q:
What Is Scalping?
A:
Scalping refers to a trading strategy that makes profits by opening and then selling the position "multiple times", "willfully", or "in enormous volume" within 180 seconds.
