What Type of Broker the Company Is
The Brokerage Regulations document shows that the client appoints the company as its agent to act on behalf of the client. The company may route clients’ orders for execution to third parties some of which may be affiliated entities when the company is acting as a riskless principal. This means that it uses the Straight Through Processing (STP) model to execute client’s orders and there is no conflict of interest as there is if the company is a market maker. Just2Trade provides a list of financial institutions, which act as execution venues.
The same document explains that under certain trading conditions, it may be impossible to execute orders (including stop loss orders) at the requested price. In this case, the company executes the order at the first available market price. This may occur at times of rapid price fluctuations. This means that stop loss orders are not guaranteed and will be filled at the first available market price.
All types of orders are subject to slippage and the company informs it is a normal phenomenon during the period of low liquidity or high volatility. The orders will be filled at the next available market price.
In addition, all the retail clients who have accounts different from ECN are covered by Negative Balance Protection. This means that Just2Trade ensures that losses will never exceed the client account balance.
