What is Capitalise.ai?

Capitalise.ai is a leading trading platform that enables you to use plain English to automate your trading plans – meaning no coding, no complicated system to learn, and no tech expertise required.

Capitalise.ai is your one-stop shop for following, controlling, and executing trades, and FOREX.com is the only US FX broker to offer it.

How does Capitalise.ai work?

Capitalise.ai works by enabling you to write "if-then" strategies in plain English. Automating your trading strategies in this way liberates you from both the screen and from emotionally-influenced decisions that can undermine your trading plan.

Capitalise.ai also provides back testing against historical data to give you a clearer perspective on your edge in a market, smart notifications to maximize opportunities and better manage risk, and more.

Do I need to be logged into Capitalise.ai for my strategies to run?

No, unlike MT4, you do not need to keep the platform open to run your strategy. However, you need to login to your FOREX.com account through Capitalise.ai at least one time every 20 days to ensure your strategy continues to run without interruption.

What are the benefits of automated trading with Capitalise.ai?

There are many benefits to automated trading with Capitalise.ai beyond saving you from the tedious task of constantly watching the market. For one, algorithms and the machines that execute them don’t have emotions, meaning that they are not prone to impatience, fear, nor greed.

They also can respond to market conditions and execute trades much more quickly than humans, in addition to being able to process massive quantities of various data types extremely fast. And of course, they don’t have to sleep, meaning they can monitor the market and execute trades round-the-clock without any intervention needed from you.

Although appealing for a variety of reasons, automated trading systems should not be considered a substitute for carefully executed trading. Technology failures can happen, and as such, these systems do require monitoring. Remember, you should have some trading experience and knowledge before you decide to use automated trading systems and you should understand the risks involved.

Is Capitalise.ai free?

Yes – there are no Capitalise.ai fees, no monthly payments, no security deposits, and no credit card information required, whatsoever.

Does Capitalise.ai work with demo accounts?

Can I use Capitalise.ai with another US FX broker?

No, Capitalise.ai is exclusively available for FOREX.com US clients.

Can I close my positions from my strategy at any time?

Yes, you can close your positions at anytime from your strategy within Capitalise.ai or via any FOREX.com platform.

What happens to the strategy if I close the position from the FOREX.com platforms?

Capitalise.ai will continue to show the strategy running until the strategy exit would have triggered or if you manually stop the strategy on Capitalise.ai.

My Capitalise.ai strategy is still running, but my position is closed on the FOREX.com platform, what happened to my position?

Either your position was closed manually by you via the FOREX.com platform or your account fell below the minimum margin requirement.

Why can I not run a strategy I have created?

If you ran a strategy and it was manually closed on the FOREX.com platforms, the strategy cannot be ran again. In this instance, you can "clone" the strategy, offer it a different name and run it again via the Capitalise.ai portal.
