The margin call can be viewed as a “warning border” — on weekends and holidays it rises to a value of 100% for accounts with leverage 1:100 and 500% for accounts with higher leverage. The broker has the right to prohibit the opening/closing of the Forex orders and lowering the Margin to the Margin call level one or two hours before market close, as well as open hedging positions.
Stop Out (Margin cut) level
is a margin level reached which the trading activity is simply stopped due to the high risk of the negative balance. Then orders are closed forcibly until the margin level is up. Please note that our company uses Stop Out level to decrease the risks of clients’ negative balance.
Stop Out level should not be used by clients as part of a risk management strategy — Stop Loss orders must be used instead. Please note that all pending orders will be canceled after reaching StopOut/Credit StopOut level if the trading account is on MarketPlace liquidity aggregator.

is a criterion of gap mode activation. If the price gap is equal to or greater than one spread for a given instrument, the gap mode is engaged. It is used for automatic order execution by the dealer (both Stop Loss & Take Profit execute at the gap price). Activation proceeds on the second tick after gap mode is disabled.
Gap mode does not apply to trading accounts where orders are executed on our own liquidity aggregator MarketPlace. Therefore pending orders will be executed, including Take Profit and Stop Loss, by market price, so slippage can even be 1 pip. Market and pending orders including Stop Loss and Take Profit, maybe not executed if the price has not been confirmed by the liquidity provider.
If a pending order was placed with Take Profit or/and Stop Loss and the market price jumped over the order price and the price of Take Profit/Stop Loss is in the gap level, this order will be opened by gap price and after that closed by market price with commentary [closed/gap]. The final result of this order will be negative with one spread.
