Indices

The table below contains the available indices and their applicable conditions.

Snip20151125_77

In connection with our indices offering, please bear in mind that:

  1. Swaps are charged on market close every day and in triple size on Fridays.
  2. On Fridays, market will be closed 5 minutes earlier than the rest of the days (i.e., on Fridays market closes 5 minutes before the times displayed on the table above).
  3. For the time being, DARWINs canNOT be created for trading accounts that contain DAX trades. DARWIN Providers willing to trade DAX would need to open separate MT4 accounts and traders who trade DAX won’t be able to list DARWINs for their trading accounts yet. This is due to the DAX closing between 21:00 and 7:00 (London time). We’ll let you know as soon as accounts containing DAX trades can list DARWINs.

Please get in touch at info@darwinex.com if you’d like us to enable DAX on your MT4 terminal.

Also, please bear in mind that SPX500, WS30, NDX and J225 won’t be available until next week due to Thanksgiving festivities affecting market times this week.

Commodities

The table below contains the available commodities and their applicable conditions.

Snip20151125_78

In connection with our commodities, please bear in mind that:

  1. Swaps are charged daily at 17:00 NY City time (in triple size on Wednesdays for all the commodities except for XAUUSD, which swaps are charged in triple size on Fridays).
  2. On Fridays, market will be closed 5 minutes earlier than the rest of the days (i.e., on Fridays market closes 5 minutes before the times displayed on the table above).
  3. During weekdays, there is a daily trading break in XAUUSD from 18:00 to 18:01 NY City time to avoid liquidity crunches (and spread spikes) on market open.

The new commodities will be available starting next week due to Thanksgiving festivities this week.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch at info@darwinex.com should you need assistance.

We have been notified by MetaQuotes Software Corp. that as of 1 October 2017 (Sunday), support for Windows XP, Windows 2003 and Windows Vista will be discontinued for the MetaTrader 4 platform. As potential hardware capabilities can no longer be recognised, these operating systems are considered to be outdated.

MetaQuotes has stated that Windows 7 is the minimum required operating system version for running MetaTrader 4. However, using the 64-bit versions of Windows 10 is strongly recommended.

Older versions of MetaTrader 4 will continue to work on Windows XP, Windows 2003 and Windows Vista. After 1 October 2017 (Sunday), updates will no longer be received and installers will not run on these operating systems. Without having your MetaTrader 4 up to date, you may not be able to execute trades or have guaranteed stability.

As always, feel free to contact info@darwinex.com if you have any questions or need a solution for this change!
