With the personal service and support of our qualified professionals we can reduce the risk/ return ratio and increase satisfaction.

4. Leverage:

The mode of payment is done through margin system where the investor may gain control over huge amounts or volume of foreign currency by depositing a small percentage of the actual value. That small percentage of liquid capital is called the margin.

Example:     US Dollar at .9120 Euro
For a contract size of 100,000, the dollar value of the
transaction is computed as follows.

.9120 x 100,000 = $ 91,200

The FOREX investor does not need the full $ 91,200.61 to enable him to transact that amount. The margin requirement is only US$2,000 under normal market conditions.

5. High Return on Investment (ROI):

%Return on Investment  =    Profit      x 100


Due to leverage, the investment return is expected to be much greater than the typical
stock or bond investment profit. Consequenty even minor fluctuations of currencies can
result in high returns.

Example: For Euro -  From    .9120     to       .9250        =   Difference  $ 1,300
($ 91,200   )       ($ 92,500)

% Return based on                      $ 1,300    x  100 =   65%

company’s margin requirement     $ 2,000

% Return based on                      $ 1,300    x 100 =   13%

client’s usual margin reserve         $10,000

The amount of $ 1,300 is computed from a single round-turn transaction. It should be noted also that the above percentages are not annualized since no timeframe has been incorporated into the equation.
