Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. Before deciding to trade foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. You could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. CFDs are complex instruments. You can lose your money rapidly due to leverage. Please ensure you understand how this product works and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing money.

What are partial fills and points through current?

Partial fills and points through current are advanced order types, available in the trade ticket.

If you’re trading in large sizes, selecting ‘partial fills’ helps increase your chance of successful execution. If you trade in a size so large that we cannot fill your entire order, rather than reject your order we’ll be able to fill you in the maximum size possible. We’ll only ever partially fill your order as an alternative to an outright rejection.

‘Points through current’ minimizes the chance of a price rejection due to volatile markets. If the market changes suddenly as you click to trade, we’ll still place your order if the market price is within the tolerance (the number of points through the current price) that you specify.
