The foreign exchange markets are de-centralized, offering different levels of access to various market participants. At the lowest level are individuals making small personal transactions, such as those visiting foreign countries. Their access is through several intermediaries, and as a result, they tend to receive less favorable pricing for transactions. Corporations tend to have better access and pricing, however, they generally access the market through a bank. Small banks deal through larger banks. The larger banks trade through each other and have access to the best pricing. Deutsche Bank AG is the number one bank in the world's foreign exchange market.* When you trade through dbFX, you receive privileged access to the world's foreign exchange market. dbFX is as close to the inter-bank market as a individual trader can be.

Stop-Loss Orders and Trailing Stops
Stop-loss and limit orders can be placed on open positions simply by clicking on the stop/limit column on the open ticket.

With the dbFX Trading Station, a stop-loss order is attached to a specific open position or entry order. If the position is closed or entry order cancelled, the attached limit order will be cancelled. Otherwise, the limit order is good till cancelled.
A trailing Stop-loss order is similar to a stop-loss, except contains an additional feature. The stop-loss level automatically adjusts in set-increments to increase gains or decrease losses, as the underlying position makes favorable moves.
Ability to Set Stops and Trailing Stops
All account information is updated on a tick-by-tick basis, giving clients a complete view of their account activity. Clients have the ability to select the degree of leverage for their account. Margin requirements are fixed for both intraday trading and for positions held overnight.
