The following Trading Rules and Regulations will outline Sway Markets Pty Ltd’s trading and account opening procedures and policies. All customers must read, comprehend, and comply with these rules and regulations. Sway Markets Pty Ltd reserves the right to modify any rules or regulations at any time and at its sole discretion.
Business Hours:
The normal trading week for Sway Markets Pty Ltd begins on Sunday at 19:00 (7:00 PM EST) and concludes on Friday at 16:00 (2:00 PM EST) (time is subject to change.)
Sway Markets Pty Ltd will, to the best of its ability, publish and display a holiday schedule on its website when trading will be suspended.
In the event of a holiday, Sway Markets Pty Ltd will make reasonable efforts to announce the resumption of trading in advance and post the information on its website.
Sway Markets Pty Ltd reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to conduct technical maintenance periods during which electronic trading may be unavailable.
Account and Deposit Information:
Liquidation level: Sway Markets Pty Ltd reserves the right to automatically liquidate the position, and the Customer will be liable for any resulting losses. Sway Markets Pty Ltd reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify the Liquidation Level.
The prices offered by Sway Markets Pty Ltd are unrelated to those found elsewhere. Customers acknowledge that the prices reported by Sway Markets Pty Ltd for buying and selling are independent and may differ from prices displayed elsewhere or from other liquidity providers in the interbank due to changes in liquidity from the interbank to Sway Markets Pty Ltd, an unbalanced position or exposure at Sway Markets Pty Ltd, or differing expectations regarding price movements. Sway Markets Pty Ltd anticipates that the prices it offers its customers will be in line with the interbank market in the majority of instances, but does not guarantee or imply that this will always be the case.
Rollover rates for open positions are determined by Sway Markets Pty Ltd and are independent of Interbank market prices found elsewhere. The Customer acknowledges that, when applicable, all existing open positions that remain open past the end of the business day for Sway Markets Pty Ltd, defined as 5:00 PM EST/EDT, are automatically rolled over to the next available Spot Settlement Date at a net debit or credit to the Customer(s) Account based on spot interest rates determined solely by Sway Markets Pty Ltd. Rollover debits and credits are also affected by the number of days required to roll the position. For positions that must be rolled from a spot settlement date of Friday to Monday, the debit or credit will reflect a rollover of three business days, or from Friday to Monday. For Monday-to-Tuesday, Tuesday-to-Wednesday, Wednesday-to-Thursday, and Thursday-to-Friday rollovers, the debit or credit is only for one business day. If Sway Markets Pty Ltd is closed on a holiday, the rollover would take the holiday into account. For instance, if Tuesday is a holiday, Monday rollovers will be for two (2) business days (i.e. from Monday to Wednesday). Due to the fact that rollover debits and credits are determined by the respective short-term spot interest, a large spread can result in a significant debt or credit rollover amount. This spread may result from countries tightening credit conditions to discourage speculators from shorting one trading product versus another, but this is not the only cause. If the original credit or debit amounts are incorrect due to an error or omission, Sway Markets Pty Ltd reserves the right to make adjustments at its sole discretion.
Sweep rates for balances in currencies other than USD are determined by Sway Markets Pty Ltd and may be independent of other Interbank market prices. When open positions are closed and the Profit and Loss is realized, profits calculated in a foreign currency are “swept” into dollars. The Customer acknowledges that neither Sway Markets Pty Ltd nor any of its representatives guarantee the Customer a profit from trading. The Customer further acknowledges that they could sustain the loss of their entire Risk Capital deposited in their Account and that they are financially able to withstand any losses.
Sway Markets Pty Ltd does not guarantee it will be able to execute stop-loss orders, limit orders, or OCO Orders at the Customer Entered Price. Customer acknowledges and agrees that market, liquidity, or other conditions may prevent Sway Markets Pty Ltd from executing customer-specific stop-loss orders, limit orders, or OCO orders at the price specified by the Customer. In some instances, orders will be executed at less favorable prices than those entered and desired by the Customer. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that they remain responsible for trades executed at different levels than their orders, and that Sway Markets Pty Ltd is not liable for failure to do so.
Technology risk is inherent to trading online or through a software application. Although Sway Markets Pty Ltd has invested significant resources developing, testing, configuring, and integrating the Trading Platform and other relevant software and hardware, the Customer acknowledges and agrees that Sway Markets Pty Ltd does not guarantee that the Customer will be able to successfully execute a transaction, monitor their positions, or perform other essential tasks while using the public Internet and other technology from Sway Markets Pty Ltd or a third party. Sway Markets Pty Ltd cannot control, including but not limited to, the routing, Internet connectivity, reliability of customer or Sway Markets Pty Ltd equipment, network connections, or any other technology hardware malfunction caused by Sway Markets Pty Ltd hardware, hardware, and connectivity that comprise the public Internet, or hardware at the Customers location. Although every effort has been made to the contrary, Sway Markets Pty Ltd does not guarantee that the Trading Platform and Associated Back Office and Broker Software Interfaces nor any other code or application, including but not limited to the interface with Sway Markets Pty Ltd liquidity provider(s) or the interface with the escrow Account institution or any other technology application that would fall under the heading software, are error-free and would not result in communications disruptions. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Sway Markets Pty Ltd provides the Trading Platform and Associated Back Office and Broker Software Interfaces “as is,” without any express or implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or other warranties.
Trades Done Utilizing chat programs. Sway Markets Pty Ltd may utilize an electronic conversational application or other chat-like applications. This application will be utilized by Sway Markets Pty Ltd to provide customers with an additional means of communicating order information to the Sway Markets Pty Ltd Trading Desk.
The origin of funds. The Customer certifies that he or she has sufficient funds and risk capital available for immediate transfer to support a margin-based brokerage account with Sway Markets Pty Ltd for over-the-counter and/or off-exchange trading products. Customer acknowledges the high degree of risk inherent in trading and releases Sway Markets Pty Ltd from liability. The Customer acknowledges that these funds serve as protection for any of their own customers who may take trading positions resulting in a loss, negative balance, or margin call.

Sway Markets Pty Ltd does not tolerate money laundering and is dedicated to combating money launderers. Sway Markets Pty Ltd adheres to the Joint Money Laundering Steering Group’s guidelines. The United Kingdom is a full member of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), which aims to combat money laundering and terrorism financing. Sway Markets Pty Ltd has implemented measures to prevent money laundering. These policies consist of:
Ensuring that customers have valid identification.
Maintaining identification information records.
Checking client names against lists of known or suspected terrorists to determine that they are not known or suspected terrorists.
Informing clients that their information may be used for identity verification.
Closely monitoring the financial transactions of clients.
Not accepting cash, money orders, transactions with third parties, transfers from exchange houses, or Western Union transfers.
Money laundering occurs when funds from an illegal or criminal activity are moved through the financial system to make it appear as though they originated from legitimate sources.
Typically, money laundering involves three steps:
Initial placement of cash or cash equivalents into the financial system.
Second, funds are transferred or moved to other accounts (e.g., futures accounts) through a series of financial transactions designed to conceal the source of the funds (e.g. executing trades with little or no financial risk or transferring account balances to other accounts).
The funds are then reintroduced into the economy so that they appear to have originated from legitimate sources (e.g. closing a futures account and transferring the funds to a bank account).
Trading accounts can be utilized to launder illegal funds or conceal the true owner of the funds. In particular, a trading account can be used to conduct financial transactions that help conceal the origins of the funds.
As a precaution, Sway Markets Pty Ltd redirects funds withdrawals to the original source of remittance. International Anti-Money Laundering requires financial services institutions to be aware of potential money laundering abuses in customer accounts and to implement a compliance program to deter, detect, and report suspicious activity.
These rules have been established to safeguard Sway Markets Pty Ltd and its customers.
Please contact us at with any questions or feedback regarding these guidelines.
