    • I'm having problems logging into my account. What do I do?

      If you are having login issues, contact our technical support here.

    • What do I do if I get the message "You are already registered with another demo user"?

      You have had a demo account in the past, and most likely it has expired. If you are looking to have it extended you will need to talk to a specialist.

    • I am receiving the 'Login error - Username/password incorrect' message. What do I do?

      Make sure you are entering the Username and Password exactly how you received it since it's case sensitive. Also, make sure the correct system type is selected on the login screen - for example, if you are trying to log in to the demo, make sure that "demo system" is selected on the login screen.

    • How do I access Tradefair PRO if I am behind a firewall?

      2. Disable any internet security or firewall specific software, or configure it to allow Tradefair PRO the access it needs. Tradefair PRO requires ports 8080, 443 and 17326/17325.
      3. Disable antivirus blocking. Most antivirus software published in or after 2004 will have port-blocking capabilities.
      4. Make sure that port forwarding and hardware firewall settings are disabled on any existing network routers. Out of the box, a router should not have any of these settings enabled. If you are not comfortable disabling them, configure them for the port numbers above (#2).
      5. Reset your modem or firewall. Make sure it's off at least 30 seconds before restoring power so that all static electricity has subsided.

  • Spread betting

    • How does Tradefair adjust spread bets?

      Tradefair offers daily funded spread bets on cash indices, equities, forex, commodities and metals. With this kind of spread bet, your position on cash markets will remain open and maintain its original entry price.

      Tradefair processes the daily finance adjustments and - when applicable for index and equity positions - dividend adjustments (credit or debits) for open positions in these markets.

    • What's the benefit of offering the finance adjustment this way?

      If you have a spread bet on a cash market, it can be held for longer periods of time and the positions will remain open at the original entry price.

    • How is the finance adjustment calculated?

      You can view the formula for this adjustment on the market information sheet for the specific market. To select a specific sheet, check out our Range of Markets page.

    • What markets does Tradefair offer daily funded spread bets on?

      Tradefair offers daily funded spread bets on cash indices, equities, forex, commodities, and metals.

    • What benefits do daily funded spread bets offer?

      Daily funded spread bets are a more convenient way to trade. By avoiding daily rollovers, your true profit or loss on each position is much easier to track over time.

    • Why does my spread bet trade have a 2017 expiry date?

      When you monitor your spread bet trades in the Tradefair platforms, you'll notice that your cash market positions have a 31st March, 2017 expiry date associated with them (although you can exit the trade at any time up to that date). This is related to the calculation process for daily funded spread bets. In your reports, you'll notice that the positions keep their original entry price.

    • Why don't I see rollover adjustments in my reports?

      If you're trading a cash market, you won't see entries for rollover adjustments with a closed price and a new entry price. You will be able to see adjustments, such as daily finance adjustments, and their amounts, but your positions on cash markets will keep the original entry price.

  • CFD

    • How do I calculate margin for CFDs?

      The following is an example of how margin can be calculated for CFDs:

      A customer wants to buy 500 share CFDs at $20.00. The share CFD has a 5% margin requirement.
      500 x $20.00 = A $10,000.00 (this is value of the position)
      A $10,000.00 x 5% = $500.00 (To hold this position the customer will be required to deposit A $500 as initial margin)

      Another example is to buy 10,000 shares @ $20.00. Through a broker this would require $200,000. With 5% margin CFD the customer outlay is only $10,000 plus any commission.

    • How do I calculate finance charges for CFDs?

      With the majority of CFDs, financing is debited (for long positions) or credited (for short positions) daily and is applied if a customer is in a position at 5 pm ET.

      Typical Nightly Finance Calculation
      F=(S x P x R) /D

      F - Daily Financing Charge
      S - Number of CFDs (2500)
      P - Closing Price as
      R - Relevant overnight LIBOR rate, PLUS 250 basis points for long positions, or MINUS 250 basis points for short positions, e.g. (4.50% + 3.00%) = 7.50%
      D - Number of Days, i.e. 365 for UK shares and 360 for all others

  • Tradefair PRO

    • How do I log in?

      After installing Tradefair PRO, click on the desktop icon. Enter your login name and password, then choose either demo or live from the system dropdown depending on your account type. Click the Login button and Tradefair PRO will open.

      Your login and password should have been sent to you in an email when you open an account. If you have problems or receive an error when logging in, start a live chat with us for help.

    • I have more than one account. Can I switch between accounts when I make a trade?

      If you have more than one Tradefair PRO account, you can switch between accounts at any time using the Account drop-down menu in the New Order window.

      If you switch between accounts while trading, make sure the right account is selected in the Account drop-down menu before you enter your trade. Your accounts may use different settings for size or base currency or different account types (position-based or net-based). All of these factors may have an effect on the outcome of your trade.

    • How do I trade from a chart?

      Right-click in a chart window to bring up a drop-down menu. From this menu you can select to buy at or sell at the direct deal price, which will open a market order window where you can choose a slippage threshold and the number of lots, contracts, or stakes.

      You can also choose to enter other order types from the drop-down menu including Trailing Stops, Stops and Limits, and Parent & Contingents.

    • What is the difference between a market order and a direct deal order?

      A market order is a request to buy or sell an instrument at the current market price.

      A direct deal order is a request to buy or sell an instrument at an exact price (if it is still available). You can usually place it with one click.

      The biggest difference between these two order types is how they are filled. Even though Tradefair PRO fills all orders immediately, prices can jump or fall instantaneously in a volatile market. In this case, a market order will be filled at the closest available price; a direct deal order will only be filled if the price is still available when the order reaches the Tradefair PRO servers.

    • How do I close an order?

      Right-click on the order in the Open Positions window and select Close @ Mkt. To quickly close all of your open positions, select Close All @ Mkt.

    • I closed one of the chart windows in my layout. How do I re-open it?

      These charts are known as linked charts. To reopen one, right-click on the instrument in the Quote Board window and select Open Linked Chart from the drop-down menu.

      If the instrument you are looking for is not listed in the quote board, you can add it by right-clicking within the Quote Board window, selecting Insert Instrument, and choosing the instrument from the menu.

  • Autochartist patterns

    • Do any of the Autochartist tools tell me when to place a trade?

      No. Autochartist examines chart movements to identify patterns that may provide insight into possible future market movements and price targets. Autochartist forecasts should be combined with your own technical analysis to determine potential entry and exit points.

    • Why can't I log into Autochartist Chart Patterns?

      To use Autochartist, you must have a live Tradefair account. If you do not have one, apply for one here.

    • What's the difference between a completed pattern and an emerging pattern in Chart Patterns?

      An emerging pattern is one in which no price breakout has occurred, so Autochartist is unable to forecast a potential price target range. Emerging patterns are displayed to enable traders to be more proactive by preparing for potential upcoming trades. A completed pattern has had a breakout, so Autochartist can forecast a potential price target range. Only completed patterns should be used to help determine possible trades.

    • I placed a trade using a completed pattern's target price range, but the currency pair failed to trade to that range. Why did this happen?

      As with any technical tool, Autochartist cannot predict where the market will move, nor will it be correct 100% of the time. It offers forecasts of possible price movements based on emerging and completed patterns and the way those patterns have typically behaved in past markets. Many factors affect market movements, including financial news and human psychology. That is why it is extremely important to use Autochartist as part of a comprehensive trading strategy, including multiple forms of technical analysis to confirm or enhance the program's analysis. All potential trades should be weighed in terms of how it fits with your personal trading strategy, including risk appetite.

  • Foresight-A.I.

    • How do I view Foresight-A.I.?

      Foresight-A.I. forecasts are overlaid on the two-minute chart in Tradefair PRO.

      You can display the chart by logging into Tradefair PRO. Select the View menu and click Chart. Then select the instrument that you want from the Select Symbol window.

      When the chart loads, click the Timeframe drop-down menu and select the two minute timeframe.

      Then, click the Change Secondary Symbol button. From the drop-down menu, you can select Foresight-A.I.

    • What time are forecasts available?

      Foresight-A.I. forecasts are typically available by 11 p.m. GMT the evening before the next trading day. However, the level of correlation can't be verified until trading has actually begun, so this forecast should only be used to run "what-if" scenarios and determine potential entry and exit points. When combined with your own price analysis, this information can be highly useful in determining when to place your trades.

      Once the forecast has been running on the chart for at least 30 minutes, you may begin to evaluate how it correlates. Some markets or trading days may require a longer timeframe to verify how it corresponds with your own market-direction analysis.

    • Does Foresight-A.I. change overnight?

      No. Once the forecast has been issued, it does not change.

    • Can the Foresight-A.I. forecast invert during the trading day?

      While it is rare, it is possible that a forecast may invert sometime through the day. For example, perhaps during the first couple of hours the forecast may match the actual markets, but then for the next couple of hours it is exactly the opposite. It's important to keep an eye on your forecast throughout the day to ensure that you are making potentially high-probability trades.

    • How accurate is Foresight-A.I.?

      Generally, a forecast's accuracy is better earlier in the trading day but like most indicators, Foresight-A.I. should never be used alone. Foresight-A.I. is best used to determine what times each day to trade. Other information, such as pricing and trend magnitude should be determined through other analysis methods.

    • Why do inversions occur?

      An inversion is when the forecast line is more or less an upside-down version of what it should be. In other words, the forecast high is actually a low or the low could actually be the high. Because of this, it can't really be said that the forecast is "wrong." The times of the changes in direction are still generally accurate. To view the inverted line, press SHIFT+CTRL+I. It is unknown precisely why inversions occur.

    • If Foresight-A.I. only forecasts the day's highs and lows, how do I know at what prices to trade?

      We highly recommend using Foresight-A.I. with a pricing indicator such as Fibonacci retracements, pivot points or our DiNapoli D-Levels service to gauge price swings and possible support and resistance levels. For more about DiNapoli D-Levels, please click here.

    • What do the numbers of the left side of the chart mean?

      The numbers on the left side of the chart are simply used by the Tradefair platform to plot the Foresight-A.I. forecast. They serve no other purpose and can be ignored. Please refer to the numbers to the right of the chart for pricing.

    • Why is it only used on two-minute charts?

      The original purpose was to give a forecast for intraday moves to enhance day trading. Various timeframes have been attempted, but the ultimate combination of Foresight-A.I. with the highest probability has proven to be the two-minute timeframe.

    • What is a pricing tool?

      Unlike Foresight-A.I., which only forecasts time, a pricing tool can help you determine at what price to place a trade. There are a large number of pricing analysis tools available, and many of them -- including Fibonacci retracements, Gann fans and others -- are included free with Tradefair PRO. The choice of pricing indicators is determined by your trading strategy.
