Note!
  • Closing a trade does not necessarily take place with the same counterparty where the trade was opened, since the aggregator executes an order with any counterparty that has the best price.
  • Trades that the client wants to verify are selected by the client, and their order numbers are not disclosed to the company's employees in advance. This eliminates any possible data falsification.

ICE FX is the only brokerage firm to date that provides its customers with the opportunity to verify the hedging of transactions they have made with counterparties.

At the client's request, ICE FX demonstrates its back office with counterparties. In the back office, the client can see all the hedging data of the transaction he made.

The back office is similar to the company's personal account. It is hosted on the counterparty's domain – ICE FX cannot falsify any information in it.

The client can view the hedging of any trade, including the trades of a third-party manager, whose order numbers (in the MT 4 platform) is known to the client.

Verification process

Post-factum verification

  • The client independently chooses the trades whose hedging he would like to verify.
  • The client contacts the Technical Support Service, agrees the date and time of demonstration and leaves his Skype ID with the Technical Support Service.
  • At the appointed time, a company employee will contact the client via his Skype ID.
  • The client tells the employee the number(s) of the trades (a unique transaction number in the MetaTrader 4 platform).
  • In the presence of the client (Skype screen sharing), the employee determines on which counterparty was a trade executed.
  • In the presence of the client, the company employee logs into the company's back office at that counterparty (pay attention to location of the back office in the counterparty's domain!). The employee requests an extract for the days when the transaction was made, and in the resulting report finds the client's trade.

Online verification

  • The client contacts the Technical Support Service, agrees the date and time of the demonstration and leaves his Skype ID with the Technical Support Service.
  • At the appointed time, a company employee will contact the client via the Skype ID left.
  • In the presence of the client, the employee launches the trading terminals of all counterparties and the aggregator.
  • The client performs a trading operation on his client terminal and tells the employee the order number. The order number is not required if a small number of transactions are made by the company's customers at a given time.
  • In the presence of the client (Skype screen sharing), the employee determines on which counterparty was a trade executed.
  • This trade will be visible in the counterparty's terminal as open.

Limitations

Due to the time capacity of demonstrating a hedging and the need to recruit someone for this, the number of transactions available for viewing and the available number of requests per calendar month are all limited
