The "Trade flow is busy" message appears when a client sends a new order to the server without waiting for a response to the previous request. Usually this message means there’s a short-term loss of connection with the server, and the client has not received a response from the server and his next order is put in queue on the client terminal.
"Not enough money" means that there is not enough margin on your account to open a position of the desired volume.
The easiest way to find out the amount of margin is to use Investment Calculator, which can be found on the corresponding page of our website.
Also, you can use the calculation formula:
<Margin> = <Size of the contract> / <Credit line>
The cost of 1 point of the financial instrument price is calculated according to the following formula:
<Cost of 1 point> = (Contract * (Price + One_Point)) - (Contract * Price)
Contract – the contract size.
Price – the current quote of the instrument.
One_Point – the size of 1 point.
Let’s calculate the cost of 1 point for a long position of 1 lot in EURGBP to be opened on the account with the USD as the base currency at the price of 0.8365.
Contract: 100,000 (1 lot is 100,000 units of the base currency).
<Cost of 1 point> = (100,000 * (0.8365 + 0.0001)) - (100,000 * 0.8365) = 10.00 GBP
To convert this number into the account currency, multiply it by the current rate of GBPUSD.
10.00 GBP * 1.5417 = 15.47 USD
To quickly find out the cost of 1 point of some particular asset, we recommend to use Investment Calculator.
Demo accounts are usually used in three cases:
After performing all necessary operations on a Demo account, you can start investing on a real account.
Conditions on RM Investment Bank demo and real investment accounts correspond in the following way:
Your order could have been closed due to one of the following reasons:
By default, the charts of investment instruments in the terminal show the Bid price, but not all positions are closed at this price.
Long positions (Buy) are opened at the Ask price and closed at the Bid price. Short positions (Sell), in their turn, are opened at the Bid price and closed at the Ask price.
As a result, on the chart you can see only the Bid price, at which your long (Buy) positions are closed.
It can be easily changed by enabling the Ask line in chart settings.
The following types of orders may be executed not at the declared price: Buy Stop, Sell Stop, and Stop Loss.
When these orders are triggered, the system sends the Market order, which is executed at the current price at the time of the order processing. This is the reason why there might be differences between the price specified in the pending order and the execution price.
Other types of pending orders, Buy Limit, Sell Limit, and Take Profit, are executed at the specified or better price, if such price exists on the market when they are executed.
1. Using Investment Calculator.
2. According to the formula.
The margin is calculated according to the following formula:
<Margin> = <Contract size> / <Credit line>
Contract size - the order volume in the base currency of the investment instrument (the first currency in the ticker). The order volume of 1 lot for all currency pairs is always equal to 100,000 units of the instrument base currency.
Credit - the credit line value.
You buy 1 lot of EURUSD.
Account currency: EUR.
Credit line: 1:100.
<Margin> = 100,000 / 100 = 1,000 EUR
If your account currency differs from the base currency of the instrument, you have to convert the margin amount into the account currency at the rate when your position is opened.
You buy 1 lot of EURUSD.
Account currency: USD.
Margin in the base currency of the asset: 1,000 EUR.
Current EURUSD rate: 1.2345.
<Margin> = 1,000 * 1.2345 = 1,234.50 USD
No, it’s not. To change the type or the base currency of the account, you have to open a new account with required parameters.
