What is spot trading?

The concept of "spot trading" or "spot transaction" comes from the English word spot, which literally translates as "on the spot". Every trader should know and understand the principle of concluding such transactions, regardless of the type of investment activity he is engaged in.

What is spot trading

Spot trading is the method of buying and selling assets when transactions are made one-three business days after the settlement date. Market participants agree on the price and date (spots) of a trade in advance. Most likely, you have already heard about such spot markets as the NASDAQ and the NYSE, which are known all over the globe. If not, it is high time to learn about them!

InstaSpot Balance


InstaSpot Balance is a balance on InstaForex trading account.

There are three account types:

accounts denominated in major currencies (USD, RUB, UAH, IDR, BTC, ETH)
accounts where all major currencies could be traded against other spot currencies
accounts which allow exchanges between balances in base currencies belonging to one client. It is necessary to transfer funds from one account to another

To make transactions using one major currency, a trader should have an account denominated in this currency and with enough funds on it.

To perform transactions with two major currencies, it is necessary to have an account denominated in the first major currency and linked to another account denominated in the second major currency. An account from which a trader sells the currency should have 110% from the transaction sum. Transactions between major currencies are performed immediately.
