DMA commission reduction example

If you trade $350M volume in Month 1, your commission for trades in Month 2 will be $35 per million traded.

If you trade $550M volume in Month 2, your commission for trades in Month 3 will still be $35 per million traded, since it is based on your 3-month rolling average of volume traded.

If you trade $600M volume in Month 3, your commission for trades in Month 4 will be $30 per million traded (based on 3-month rolling average of volume traded).

DMA deal ticket

Our DMA dealing ticket gives you access to multiple levels of liquidity displayed in real time. You can view pricing available on either side of our order book and have the ability to place orders within the top of book spreads.


Keep in mind, this doesn't necessarily mean that the top-of-book prices will always be better than our standard pricing as factors such as size of trade and time of day can impact the tightness of the bid/ask spread.

What are the advantages of trading under a DMA model compared to a market maker?

How do orders get filled on a DMA account?

Limit orders placed via the DMA trade ticket will be immediately passed to the execution venue where they effectively become bids/offers for other participants in the liquidity pool to interact with. Please note that customers must have sufficient margin for a limit order at the time of entry and when stop or limit price is triggered.

 

FOREX.com may cancel a limit order if the customer's available margin falls below the required margin for the limit order. Stop Loss orders placed via the DMA trade ticket are held at the execution venue and are contingent upon a price trigger before being exposed to the liquidity pool. Orders placed via the standard trade ticket on the Advanced Trading Platform, web trading as well as the mobile platforms will be triggered off top-of-book prices and will only be sent to the liquidity pool as a market/limit order after the order is triggered.
