How IFS Markets works
The IFS MT4 platform is connected to multi-bank and non bank liquidity of major global banks and financial institutions via regulated and authorised third party liquidity providers.
In our dealings with you, we will act as principal and not as agent on your behalf. Accordingly, we will be the counterparty to all of your trades.
19. DISCLOSURE OF ANY RELEVANT CONFLICTS OF INTEREST
We do not have any relationships or associations which might influence us when providing you with our services. We act as a principal to each transaction and have a direct exposure to each other.
We will quote prices which provide an indication of the prices at which we are prepared to deal with you and which are calculated in accordance with clause 1.49 for Margin FX Contracts and clause 1.48 for CFDs. You should note that:
(a) Principal: we act under the Agreement as a principal, and accordingly, set the applicable price at which we are prepared to deal with you;
(b) Other prices: prices that may be quoted or traded upon from time to time by third parties do not apply to trades and dealings between us and you;
(c) Different prices: we, in our absolute discretion, may quote different prices to different Clients and trade at different prices with different Clients;
Positions do not have a minimum duration however if we suspect in our sole and absolute discretion that the trade constitutes the practice of scalping (as understood by industry participants) we reserve the right to cancel, amend or reject any order or re-price or close out existing positions or cancel previously realised profits or losses. Scalping includes but is not limited to trading strategies that involve the opening and closing of positions within 180 seconds.
Do you allow scalping?
Yes, no latency arbitrage strategies.
