What can you trade with Deriv.com?


Major pairs

The most popular, commonly traded currency pairs, such as EUR/USD and USD/JPY. All major pairs include USD since it’s the world’s most traded currency.


Minor pairs

Currency pairs that don’t include USD, but still encompass the currency of developed countries. This could be GBP/CAD or EUR/CHF

Unique Digital options offered by Deriv.com

Digital options have a fixed payout and a fixed premium. Before purchasing each trade, you’ll know the exact cost of each trade and how much you stand to gain or lose. At worst, the maximum that you could ever part with is the price initially paid to purchase the trade; at best, you’ll win back your initial stake plus the payout amount displayed for your consideration when you first bought the trade. Thus, as forex trading goes, the digital option route is clear-cut and predictable in terms of the potential outcomes. Your risk on DTrader is strictly limited to your premium.

Deriv Digital options give you a variety of ways to profit from a currency pair

In my new E-book How To Trade the Forex market I go into more depth on the different ways to back a currency as well as how I use technical analysis to help spot trends in the market. I also go through the Forex terminology and take your through trading examples.


FX Contracts For Difference (MT5)

A CFD is a derivative product that you can use to speculate on the future direction of a market’s price. You’ll never take ownership of the underlying asset (in this case, currencies). Profit or loss results only from the difference in the price of the underlying asset when the contract is closed. A CFD gives you exposure to a market and allows you to go long (trade for the price to go up) or short (trade for the price to go down). The CFD will remain open until you close it or it gets stopped out.

Deriv.com believes in reasonable trading and offer ways to limit your risk such as stop loss, take profit and limit orders they also offer a no negative balance guarantee which means should a trade go heavily against you and you don’t have a stop loss order you will not be asked for additional funds.


Deriv.com use Metatrader 5 (MT5)

MetaTrader 5 (MT5) is a robust online trading platform developed by MetaQuotes Software. Whilst, at first sight, MT5 can look a little overwhelming, take it a bite at a time and you’ll easily be able to rise to master it.

The power of Leverage

If you have say $1,000 with no leverage then the most you could trade is $1000 which is not that appealing fortunately Deriv offer generous leverage which will vary depending on your country of residency. Lets take for example 50:1 leverage this means for every $1000 you can control $50,000 this of course will magnify your gains and losses so should be used carefully. I explain risk management techniques in my E-book How To Trade Forex


Trading a pair

In currency trading you are always trading a pair, its one currency The base currency against the quote currency. If you went long (buy) EUR/USD then you are buying Euros and Selling US Dollars, you cannot just say buy Euros.
How to Trade Forex/CFDs in Deriv MT5

Bid price: The bid price (SELL) is what the broker is willing to pay for the base currency in this example 1.18816

Ask price: The ask price (BUY)  is the rate at which a broker will sell the quote currency. The ask price is always higher than the bid price in this case 1.18831

Spread: The difference between the ask price and the bid price, which allows the broker to earn a commission on your trade. After you cover the spread between the bid and ask prices, you can start making a profit on your position. (Spread = Ask price minus Bid price). Tighter the spread the better.

Overall currencies do not move in large percentages but what exaggerates the moves is the use of leverage. A 0.5% daily move when you have 100 x leverage becomes magnified.


Average True Range (ATR)

The  chart below of the EURUSD was plotted using MetaTrader5, by MetaQuotes. It is the standard for charting Forex pairs, and is free to download from Deriv. It shows a daily chart, where each candle represents a full day.

At the very bottom you can see the ATR, which stands for Average True Range. The parameter, 20, indicates that it is an average of the last 20 candles. Its current value is 0.00633. If you look at the last 10 bars as the price is dropping the ATR has gone up which means more volatility.

You can easily change this in MetaTrader5 if you want an average for a longer or shorter period. The average month has 20–22 trading days and 20 is a popular one to use.
