Changes in Trading Conditions
Saturday, 28 July 2018

We would like to inform you that according to requirements of the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC), it is necessary to make changes in trading conditions provided by Cyprus Investment Firms (CIF) for customers to execute trades in the financial market on their own.

Our Company is required to change trading conditions of Live accounts according to the current standards and requirements. As provided by the above regulatory requirements, from now on, the size of leverage for these types of accounts will depend on the financial instrument. For major financial instruments (EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/CHF, USD/JPY, USD/CAD, AUD/USD, NZD/USD) the leverage will be established by default without exceeding the level of 1:30 taking into account the current trading conditions. For additional financial instruments the leverage size will be 1:20.

On the basis of the updates mentioned above, we have decided to change trading conditions for iPA-Investor accounts as well, which will allow us to bring trading conditions to a common standard concerning the use of leverage. The previous leverage size was 1:50 for accounts with the volume of funds from 20 to 10,000 USD. Since publication of this news, the leverage for iPA-Investor accounts with the volume of funds up to 10,000 USD on the balance will be determined by the type of financial instrument and will be:

  • 1:30 for major financial instruments;
  • 1:20 for additional financial instruments.

Please note that due to the changes in trading conditions for iPA-Investor accounts, the yield, published in the Long List of iPA-Managers, will be calculated taking into account the change in leverage.

Company’s Stable Operation — New Opportunities for Customers
Friday, 22 June 2018

UBK Markets specialists have conducted scheduled works on improving functionality of the provided services in order to make the use of the Company’s products and services more convenient.

Now it has become easier and more convenient for iPA-Investors to monitor the status of their accounts in the Portfolio. The previously added ability to select the chart display for each iPA‑Investor account in the Portfolio (the profit chart in the deposit currency or the chart of dynamics of the iPA-Manager’s trade profitability in pips) was improved by introducing the mechanism to save settings when switching the chart display. Thus, when moving to other website pages and sections, as well as when logging out of “My Account” section, the selected chart display will be saved and set by default. You still have to click on a certain button in the block containing parameters of the iPA-Investor account in order to change the display mode.

UBK Markets info reference website is now available in the English language, which allows the Company’s Customers worldwide to learn helpful information on how to use all our products and services. We will expand gradually the existing database of reference materials and supplement it with new articles, which will significantly help you in your work with products and services of UBK Markets.

We also optimized algorithms of intelligent processing of trading signals for Processed accounts of iPA-Managers. This allowed us to improve the accuracy of forecasts regarding Managers’ activities provided that they follow the iPA technology trading rules. Thus, the efficiency of the improved processing algorithms, compared to previous ones, makes it possible to increase the profit stability in the Processed accounts by 15%.

We also inform you that the launch of the “Portfolio Manager” service and the opportunity to copy trading signals in the Portfolio were rescheduled due to the fact that the Company is actively involved in the most progressive direction — the crypto industry. We create unique solutions based on the Blockchain technology in order to provide our Customers and Partners with the most beneficial and promising ways of getting profit.

We believe that new opportunities will help you to effectively use the Company’s products and services in order to achieve stable financial results.

Scheduled System Update for Successful Work of Our Customers
Saturday, 25 November 2017

UBK Markets Company continues to work on improving the provided products and services. This is fuelled by our desire to ensure the best quality services for our Customers. Today, we inform you about innovations that will help iPA-Investors to conduct their activities more effectively and to receive stable income.

In addition to the existing profit chart (in deposit currency), the block containing the parameters of the iPA-Investor account on the “My iPA-Managers” page of the “iPA-Managers” section now also displays the chart of dynamics of the iPA-Manager’s trade profitability (in pips), even when the copying of signals (Sell and Buy) is stopped.

From now on, you can select the most convenient chart display for the iPA-Investor account:

  • profit chart in deposit currency (which was displayed previously);
  • chart of dynamics of the iPA-Manager’s trade profitability (the display has been added).

Thus, the updated tool of the iPA-Investor will allow monitoring the results of a Manager’s activity regardless of whether the copying of his/her trading signals has been stopped or resumed.

With the help of the updated tool, it has also become easier and more convenient to make decisions whether or not to resume the copying of trading signals as well as to assess the balance line trend of each iPA-Investor account. It means that, focusing on this value, you can adjust your own strategy for managing the iPA-Investor account in a timely manner and receive higher profit.

In addition, the current update includes the following:

  1. In the iPA-Investor’s account statement, new message codes have been added, which register when the copying of trading signals is stopped or resumed. These messages in the generated report will be as follows:
    • Message code: 1012. Copying of Sell/Buy trading signals has been stopped.
    • Message code: 1011. Copying of Sell/Buy trading signals has been resumed.
  2. Changes have been made to the trading conditions for the iPA-Investor account. In order to reduce possible risks and to distribute volumes among counterparties, the margin amount has been increased from 200,000 to 500,000 units of base currency in the formula for calculating the leverage for the iPA-Investor account.
  3. From now on, when resuming the copying of a Manager’s trading signals in your iPA-Investor account, the amount of funds necessary to copy the next trading position will be verified.
  4. If you have selected the “Copy later” function when opening a new iPA-Investor account, all trading signals in the created account will be stopped until you resume copying.
  5. If the amount of funds in an iPA-Investor account is not sufficient, the copying of trading signals in this account will be stopped automatically.

We are confident that the updated tools will help iPA-Investors to make informed decisions and will allow them to effectively realize their financial interests.
