You hereby irrevocably undertake to safeguard the Access Code and hereby waive all claims against the Company relating to any unauthorized use of the Access Code.

4.7. The Company reserves the right to retroactively adjust the spread applied to the positions where, due to a technical/human error, a spread is incorrect and not consistent with that published on our website.
4.8. Each trade is subject to the cost of spreads and commissions on opening and to the swap/rollover that is applied every night for the percentage of 0.015% and up to 2% on cryptocurrency, on the position value opened.
4.9 Each account will be subject to a monthly dormant fee of 25$ IF the account doesn’t open any trade for at least 60 days. The dormant fee calculation will be charged on a monthly basis and will be not calculated from the system if the trading account has been used again.
The fee cannot be refunded since it’s a compliance and brokerage fee for account maintenance.
Rollover is also called Swap. It is the interest paid or for holding a position overnight. Each world currency has an interest rate connected to it. Since forex is traded in pairs, every trade involves not only two different currencies but also two different interest rates. If the interest rate on the currency you bought is higher than the interest rate of the currency you sold, then you will earn a rollover (positive roll). If the interest rate on the currency you bought is lower than the interest rate on the currency you sold, then you will pay rollover (negative roll). Rollover can add a significant extra cost or profit to your trade depending on.
When you buy the EUR/USD pair, you are buying the euro, and selling the U.S. dollar to pay for it. If the euro interest rate is 1.00%, and the U.S. rate is 0.25%, you are buying the currency with the higher interest rate, and you will earn rollover — about 0.75% on an annual basis. Conversely, if you sell the EUR/USD pair, you are selling the currency with the higher interest rate, and you will pay rollover — about 0.75% on an annual basis since you are paying the euro interest rate and earning the U.S. interest rate.
Rollover Booking Times
The beginning and end of the forex trading day are considered to be 00:00 (GMT) by our servers. Any positions that are open at 00:00 (GMT) sharp are considered to be held overnight and are subject to rollover. A position opened at 00:01 (GMT) is not subject to rollover until the next day, while a position opened at 23:59 (GMT) is subject to rollover at 00:00 (GMT).
A credit or debit for each position opened at 00:00 (GMT) will appear in your account and be applied directly to your account balance.
Weekends and Holidays
Most banks across the world are closed on Saturdays and Sundays, so there is no rollover on these days, but most banks still apply interest on Saturdays and Sundays. To measure for this, the forex market books three days of rollover on Wednesdays, which makes a typical Wednesday rollover three times the amount. Please note that for some instruments triple swap is applied on Friday. There is no rollover on holidays, but there is an extra day’s worth of rollover two business days before the holiday. Typically, holiday rollover happens if any of the currencies traded has a major holiday. Therefore, President in the USA, February 21st, closes American banks, and an extra day of rollover is added at 00:00 (GMT) on the previous working day for all U.S.D pairs.
4.9 The company can provide a Dedicated Account Manager who can support the trader and provide the service as a personal consultant/analyst, who from time to time or at my request can provide me with research and advice regarding the financial markets, including trade recommendations based on the consultant’s analysis. The company does not charge any commissions or fees, under any circumstances, because the services of the consultant/analyst are provided free of charge. Any decisions to trade or not trade using the trading analysis or strategy provided by the consultant/analyst are made solely by the trader at his/her discretion and the company does not take any responsibility for any profits or losses incurred as a result of the marketing information provided by phone, email, trading signals or third party services who provide to the customer the daily updates.

4.10 Account Types
There are 5 different accounts in DB Investing that you can use according to your needs and preferences. The main difference between them is the Spread ratios to be applied to the operations.
STP Floating Account: the spread is a variable, depending on the market volatility or the asset being traded. This is the unique account that can be used as a Scalping.
ECN Floating Account: the spread is a variable, depending on the market volatility or the asset being traded and it is the best spread client can experience.
Islamic & IslamicPlus Accounts: Accounts that are traded according to Islamic rules, not applying a swap interest*. It can be used with both of the above. This account is reserved just for Arabic religion people.
PRO Account: the spread is a variable, depending on the market volatility or the asset being traded.
4.11 The company opens standard accounts as a default. In the case, that the customer needs an Islamic or a Scalping Account, must notify immediately to the company immediately via ticket system or email.

In the case the company notice a suspect bonus or hedger/scalper trader abuser, the account will be immediately closed together with the related positions opened and the company will not be responsible for any loss at this moment present on the opened positions.
The first deposit will be returned to the account owner and the company has the right to post-deposit also commissions on the related deposit and withdrawal.
4.14 *Swap Free/Islamic Accounts conditions: The company offer a swap-free trading account for residents of Islamic countries who observe Sharia law. With swap-free status, no swap is credited to or withdrawn from a trading account.
The Islamic/swap-free account gives the opportunity for some instruments, to be traded without any swap charge, and the same trades need to be kept open for a maximum of 7 days consecutive days.
When found to have abused the swap-free status attributed to trading accounts, we shall reserve the right to:
- Cancel the swap-free status on all trading accounts.
- Once swap-free status is discontinued, swap charges will be applicable for open orders and orders opened in the future.
Improper use includes, but is not limited to, situations where a large portion of transactions on a trading account would have been subject to negative swap charges, which were not levied by DB Investing in accordance with the swap-free status of the account.
At the moment the system detects an abuse, the company has the right to post-check and post-debit the swap costs and send the client a first warning.
All the withdrawals coming from Islamic accounts are dept monitored to be sure the client didn’t abuse them, which reason why the withdrawal can get slightly delayed for that reason.
Multiple warnings for the swap-free/Islamic account will be considered a breach of the Terms and Conditions, then the company can decide to change the client account type and charge swap or also close the client account giving a notice period, where the clients must close all the trades.

- SWAP AND SPREAD RATES
The Swap and Spread ratios applied when Investing with DB Investing are indicated on our website at the page https://www.DB Investing.com/trading-conditions/
For investors who are new to trading, we have briefly summarized what these expressions mean.
Swap Fees are the cost of a trade that is applied to transactions that are open at the end of the day resulting from the difference between the interest rates of the countries to which the currency pair is traded. “Forex” money is lent money in Forex markets and “Sold” money is borrowed. According to this logic, you can see the swap income or cost as follows in the simplest way;
If the interest rate of the received money is low and the interest rate of the money being sold is high (-), the cost is deducted from the investor’s account.
If the interest rate of the sold money is low and the interest rate of the money received is high (+) It is returned to the investor as income.
Rules Regarding Swap Fees
Swap costs or revenues are not applied to positions closed on the same day. Swap rates apply to positions that are still open at the end of the day.
Change swap balances because of the interest rates of the countries to which the relevant currency units belong.
A 3-day swap is applied to positions that are not yet closed on Thursdays (equivalent to the value of the weekend) because the Forex market is valued at +2 days. On other days this practice is 1 day.
You can choose the Islamic Account option as a non-swap-based application.
The difference between the buying and selling prices of financial assets is called “Spread” and is expressed in “pip” unit.
For example, if the buying price is 1.1225 and the selling price is 1.1223 in the EURUSD parity, this spread is 2 pips for Spread (1,1225-1,1223 = 0,002). Therefore, when you open a lot (i.e. 100 thousand units) in one lot, you will end up with a cost of 0,0002 * 100,000 = 20 USD Spread.
It is only the cost to open this position. If the parity reaches 1,1227, your cost will be zero. Spread, which is an important cost for the investor, can be fixed or variable. Variable Spread is low at times of increased liquidity in the markets but may be high in liquidity shortage. Fixed Spreads are fixed values offered to investors of brokerage houses.
