How Skilling worksThroughout the year 2019, all Client orders were transmitted directly to Skilling Limited, who is the sole counterparty of its Clients.
The Company collaborates with regulated third-party liquidity and price providers where it derives its prices and uses price aggregation engine to enable continue provision of reliable pricing (Bid/Ask) to Clients throughout the trading platforms.
Where the Client places an order for execution, the Company provides symmetrical or/ consistent markups to raw spreads (obtained from its Liquidity providers) to ensure its average spreads are highly competitive within the market as well as ensure Clients’ trades are executed at the best available prices.
You acknowledge that transactions in financial instruments placed with the Company are not executed on Trading Venue, rather these transactions are executed by us Over-the-Counter (OTC) through our online trading platform.
11.1. The Company applies negative balance protection (NBP) to Retail clients’ account on trading CFDs, meaning that the limit of Retail client’s liability for all CFD trading account cannot exceed the deposit.
