The Foreign Exchange Market (Forex or FX) is where most currencies are traded. With over $6 trillion traded per day (according to BIS) it is highly volatile and one of the most liquid global financial markets.
The FX market is made up of a network of institutions which allows 24 hours a day, five days per week trading with the exception of market closures for holidays. There are various types of Forex transactions such as Spot, Forward, Future, Swap and Options which can be traded based on the investor’s strategy and outlook. Capital Markets Elite Group has partnered up with MT5, one of the world’s most innovative FX trading platforms to supercharge your FX trading.
CFDs, or Contracts for Difference pay the difference between the open and close price of an underlying instrument as a cash-settlement. CFDs are used by traders to speculate whether the price of the asset will rise or fall and are a common product in FX trading. Capital Markets Elite Group offers access to a basket of global Index CFDs, metals and oil as well as currency pairs. Please note that Capital Markets Elite Group does not allow access to FX or CFD trading to U.S. citizens.

Overnight Financing Policy
When you’re placing an FX or CFD trade, you’re using leverage. This means you are being lent money required to open the position.
You will be charged interest if you are holding a position past a daily cut off time of 5pm EST. If you close your position on the same day before the cut-off time, you will not be charged.
The overnight financing fee is made up of an admin fee in addition to, or minus, the relevant interbank rate for the currency in which your trade is made. The interbank rate is the interest rate charged between banks for overnight loans.
Forex and spot metals
For Forex and spot metals deals, we charge the tom-next rate plus a small admin fee.
Tom-next is an industry-standard rate and is short for 'tomorrow-next day’. This rate is used by Forex speculators to keep Forex positions open overnight without physical delivery of a currency.
The overnight financing rates are displayed on our trading platform.
