Launch of Processed Accounts — Confident Step to Success
Sunday, 27 November 2016

We have activated the Processed account for the iPA-Managers who are currently generating trading signals only in the Original account (it is a type of iPA-Manager account with the appropriate trading orders). From now on trading results of the Processed account will be also displayed in the Long List. As the intelligent processing algorithms will be applied to trading signals to increase the yield level and reduce risks, trading results in the Original and Processed accounts may differ significantly. The statistical studies we have conducted show that at least 30% of accounts using original trading strategy of an iPA-Manager with a negative or low income can become profitable Processed accounts, in case an iPA-Manager follows iPA technology trading rules established by the Company and described in the articles. Links to these articles you can find below.

An iPA-Manager may focus on values of “iPA trade quality” indicator available in the updated iPro Marketplace trading and analytical platform (version 1.3.0) to make sure that he/she has selected the right trading strategy or to adjust his/her approach to trading.

Please note that the weekly compensation of an iPA-Manager constitutes part of the profit received after executing trades on the basis of his/her trading orders. Following trading rules of iPA technology each Manager can improve his/her trade quality, and consequently, use an opportunity to increase his/her income.

Introducing a new innovative product, we expect that the whole community of our successful Managers will highly assess its usefulness and will confirm it in practice. We believe that iPA technology will make it possible for each Customer to multiply his/her income in accordance with his/her competence that will inspire UBK Markets to create new products in the financial area.

More detailed information on how to improve your trading results in the Processed accounts, and consequently, increase profit you can find in the articles below:

First Results of UBK Markets Updated Services
Thursday, 10 November 2016

It has been almost two weeks since we launched new Company’s products and updated services. We have received a lot of feedbacks and suggestions from our Partners and Customers at the first stage that allow us to state confidently that our innovations and transformations confirm their efficiency in practice.

In many ways, we have relied on conclusions of our experts, but every feedback and suggestion received during the first vital stage are important and crucial in our effort to improve the Company’s products and services.

Today, we would like to announce the first results and the current status of some of our services:

  • The updated “Manage My Investments” page in the “Trading” section of “My Account” allows an iPA-Investor from now on to view more structured information on the current status of every iPA-Investor account that makes the review of its parameter values more convenient. An iPA-Investor also gets an opportunity to analyse the indices of profit received instead of “Yield” parameter.
  • We have expanded “Trading Conditions” of an iPA-Investor account with a detailed description of how to calculate the “Minimum Deposit” parameter that will allow an Investor to make right investment decisions quickly.
  • Several hundreds of new Customers have registered and joined the whole community of successful iPA-Managers of our Company.

By stabilizing functioning of updated services and implementing gradually the latest UBK Markets product line, we will inform you of the results obtained when managing appropriate business processes for convenient work of our Partners and Customers.

Information on Possible Changes in the Financial Market
Friday, 4 November 2016

The United States presidential election will be held on November 8, 2016.

This event may cause an increase in the market volatility and may weaken the liquidity of a number of financial instruments, which in its turn can cause spread widening and emergence of a gap situation. Thus, margin requirements may double without a prior notification since November 7, 2016.

To avoid forced closure of positions in case of insufficient funds, in the period from 7 to 11 November 2016 we recommend our Customers to adjust their total open position in their trading accounts in order to comply with the essential margin requirements or add additional funds to maintain the account balance. We also remind that the high volatility and widened spreads raise a possibility of slippage when executing orders.

Please note that you should take into account these circumstances when planning and managing your trading activity.
