The welcome bonus is available with Fort and Flex accounts in any currency. Accounts for beginners and Pro accounts are not eligible for welcome bonuses.

General Questions

Our company is a licensed broker and offers its clients an opportunity to trade on the world's financial markets.
Our company is licensed by the International Financial Services Commission of Belize with an international financial brokerage license, #IFSC/60/256/TS/16, issued 15-APR-2013.
In order to get started, you need to register on our website as a trader, open one or more accounts, go through the verification procedure, deposit funds into your account, then download and install the trading platform to your computer and start trading.

The company is not a tax agent and does not provide information on the activities of its clients to the tax authorities of the Russian Federation. Because the Forex market is based on financial transactions, such as buying and selling currency in the foreign exchange market, it is considered an economic activity, which, in turn, is taxable. Article 229 of the Tax Code of the Russian Federation requires all citizens to declare unrecorded taxes for the previous year. Also, according to Article 208 of the tax code, all income is subject to taxes, whether it be derived from sources in the Russian Federation or received from sources outside the Russian Federation. Income from Forex trading is income derived from sources outside of the Russian Federation and the personal income tax rate in this case is 13%. Therefore, each trader is required to pay a tax of 13% on their total income for the year. Traders will need to provide account status information for the beginning and end of the year on their tax declaration. If the trader was able to make a profit that year, he will have to pay a tax of 13% of this amount; if the loss was greater than the profits, then no tax is due. The key to self-pay income tax on earnings from the Forex market is to remember when tax returns are due to be filed with the tax authorities. Late submissions of tax declarations are subject to penalties. Also, be aware that tax evasion is a criminal offense. Therefore, ignoring the tax code of the Russian Federation can lead to fines or imprisonment for up to 3 years.

Financial Matters (Deposits/Withdrawal)

Adding funds to your account can be done in any of the ways specified in your Personal office. In deciding how to fund your account, be aware of the condition that funds can only be withdrawn from the account using the same method with which they were deposited.
To withdraw funds from your trading account, you can use the same payment system with the same account details from which it originated, unless otherwise specified in the rules of the company. To withdraw funds from your account, you need to create a withdrawal request and confirm it using the link that is sent to you via email. After processing and confirmation of your request, funds will be deducted from the balance of your account with the company.
Withdrawal requests are processed within 3 (three) working days.
If you change your payment details, you should notify the company by sending an email to the Finance Department: support@fortfs.com. They will decide whether or not to allow withdrawal using the new payment details.
This type of issue is resolved with the client on a case-by-case basis. If you are unable to withdraw funds using the same payment details used for the deposit, you must submit a request to the Finance Department with a detailed description of the problem: support@fortfs.com. A member of the Finance Department will contact you to resolve the problem.

Formulas

The value of one point in a quoted currency = volume * tick size.

As a rule, 1 tick = 0.0001, but there are a number of currencies where the tick size = 0.01, for example, in pairs with the Japanese yen.

Example 1 – Determine the value of one point for direct USD/*** quotations:
  • Currency pair: USD/JPY;

  • Tick size: 0.01;

  • Position Volume: 1 standard lot (100,000 units of the base currency);

  • The current exchange rate of USD/JPY: 78.2.

  • The value of one point = 100,000 x 0.01 / 78.2 = 12.8 USD.


Example 2 – Calculate the value of one point for reverse ***/USD quotations:
  • Currency pair: EUR/USD;

  • Tick size: 0.0001;

  • Position Volume: 0.01 lot.

  • The value of one point = 100,000 × 0.01 × 0.0001 = 0.1 USD.


Example 3 – Calculate the value of one point for cross rates:
  • Currency pair: EUR/CHF;

  • Tick size: 0.0001;

  • Position Volume: 1;

  • The current exchange rate of USD/CHF: 1.02;

  • The current exchange rate of the base currency pair AUD/USD: 1.05.

  • The value of one point = volume x tick size × base currency pair quote / current pair quote.

  • The value of one point = 100,000 x 0.0001 x 1.05 / 1.02 = 10.3 USD.
The margin is the amount of collateral the Broker requires in order to provide a line of credit:
  • Margin = the Position Volume / the leverage
  • Margin and Position Volume are expressed in the base currency.
Example 1. Margin calculation for direct USD/*** quotes:
  • Currency Pair: USD/CAD;
  • Position Volume: 1 standard lot (100,000 units of base currency);
  • Leverage: 1:100;
  • Margin = 100,000 / 100 = 1,000 USD.
Example 2. Margin calculation for reverse ***/USD quotes:
  • Currency Pair: GBP/USD;
  • Position Volume: 0.01 lot;
  • Leverage: 1:500;
  • The current rate of GBP/USD: 1.5523;
  • Margin = 0.01 x 100,000 / 500 × 1.5523 = 3.1 USD.
Example 3. Margin Calculation for cross rates:
  • Margin = the Position Volume/Leverage x exchange rate (the rate of the base currency) to the dollar.
  • Currency Pair: GBP/AUD.
  • Position Volume: 0.1 lot;
  • Leverage: 1:50;
  • The current rate of GBP/USD: 1.5523.
  • Margin = 0.1 × 100,000 / 50 × 1.5523 = 310.5 USD
The margin for locked positions is equal to zero.
A swap is a fee charged by the broker for carrying an open position over to the next day.

Swap = volume x number of days x Buy (long) or Sell (short) swap

Example:
There is an open position on EUR/USD to Buy 0.01 lot, which has been open for 20 days.
According to the table, the swap for a Buy order of 1 lot for EUR/USD, per day is -2.45 USD.
Swap = 0.01 × 20 × -2.45 = -0.49 USD.
Dividends are calculated on the funds available in your account using the following formula: average margin this month * 10%1) / 12. At the end of the month dividends are paid for each day of the month. Dividends are only credited to swap accounts. 1 10% is an example of the payout made to Fort and Flex accounts in USD, EUR and RUR account currencies.
The cost of 1 lot CFDs on stocks is calculated using this formula: 100 * lot * current price in MT4.
