There are many trading features you will encounter along your journey with the broker. Now we will take a closer look at each one.
Roboforex is a market maker broker that also offers ECN accounts and provides for market execution throughout to all traders.
The general minimum lot size you will find at the broker is 0.01 lots with the exception of the ProCent account which is 0.1 lots.
Roboforex is open and flexible when it comes to accepting a variety of trading techniques. This means you can use the EAs feature of your MetaTrader platform as well as engage in hedging, and scalping. You will also have 24/7 access to their proprietary VPS should you want it.
Risk management is vital in trading. To this end, you will be able to access a number of tools through your trading platform like setting stop losses, take profits, limit orders, and trailing stops to manage your positions.
The broker also utilizes a margin call to help you control your levels of account equity if you are trading on leverage.
Trading hours for forex will be 24/5 when the market is open. Commodities are typically 23/5 with an hour break, while for other assets this will depend on the asset itself and the market hours of the exchange you are trading on. For example, if you are trading US stocks the hours will differ from trading assets in Asia or Europe.
The amount of leverage available will vary depending on the regulation you are trading under, the assets you are trading, and the account type you are using. The maximum leverage offered is 1000:1 on forex on MT4/MT5.
As a new client under IFSC regulation, it is possible to increase your leverage to 2000:1 on Pro and ProCent accounts by opening a new account through your members’ area.

The maximum leverage available on an R StockTrader account is 20:1 on stocks.
