Hedging

This is an optional feature.

Although it is a convenient feature to enter hedged trades at the same time, we do not recommend the usage of the feature to our users. You should be aware of the various factors that could affect your account balance as a result of executing such hedged trades:

  • - Possible negative spread (i.e., rollover charges may be higher than rollover accruals) if hedged positions are held overnight; or
  • - You will be subject to twice the usual trading cost when closing these hedged trades.

You will only be required to hold one set of Margin for hedging trades, with this amount being the average required margin for the two hedging positions.
There must be sufficient Margin in your trading account in order to open the hedging position.

It will be your responsibility to continually monitor your positions and Z.com Bullion will be not liable for any loss or damage, including without limitation to, any loss of profit, which may arise directly or indirectly from use of this feature.

Cash-on-Delivery (Physical Settlement) Not available

Settlement & Rollover

Profit / Loss Settlement Realised trading profit/loss will be settled (i.e., credited to or debited from the cash balance) at Trading Close.
Rollover

The realised amount will be settled (i.e., credited to or debited from the cash balance) at Trading Close.

Please note that "3-day" rollover will be applied to all open positions at trading close on Wednesdays. U.S. bank holidays may also affect the number of days worth for each rollover.

Rollover rates for each product are clearly detailed on the MetaTrader 4 platform. You may check the debited or credited rollover amount under Account History on the platform (For more details, please refer to our MT4 user guide). Alternatively, you may check the rollover amount applied to your open positions via the Client Statement which is emailed to you after each trading close.
