Salt Lake City, UT, December 15, 2009 -- Interbank FX (http://www.interbankfx.com), a leading off-exchange retail foreign currency (Forex/FX) broker has recently introduced Intraday hedging to all demo accounts with plans to introduce Intraday Hedging to live accounts before the new year.
Earlier this year, the NFA issued new regulations prohibiting traders from hedging (having long and short positions open on the same currency pair at the same time). These regulatory changes have affected the trading style of many customers, and Interbank FX has found a way for traders to hedge while holding to NFA guidelines. With Intraday Hedging, Interbank FX customers will be able to place both long and short orders in the same currency pair during the course of the day.
ÂOur number one priority at Interbank FX is providing solutions to simplify and improve customersÂ trading,Â said Todd Crosland, Chairman and President of Interbank FX. ÂWe realize the NFAÂs hedging policy impacted customers trading strategies, because they spoke and we listened. We wanted a solution that would adhere to the NFAÂs guidelines while catering to our customers.Â
With our new Intraday Hedging solution in place, those customers trading with swap accounts will be netted out just before approximately 5 pm Eastern Time. For example:
At 10:11:00 Eastern you open a 2 lot long on the EUR/USD at 1.4730 (ticket #1).
At 13:01:01 Eastern you open a 2 lot short on the EUR/USD at 1.4733 (ticket #2).
Just before swap, at approximately 17:00 Eastern, ticket #1 is closed out at 1.4733 and ticket #2 would show 0 lots with an open and close price of 1.4733.
"We continue to take pride in our customer centric business model," Crosland stated. ÂWeÂre already offering Intraday hedging to our demo accounts, and hope to have this option available through our live accounts on December 20.Â
