What is an Islamic Account?

The Vantage FX Islamic Accounts, also known as a swap-free account, incur no swaps or interest charges on overnight positions. Instead, the account holder is charged an administration fee on positions which is deducted from the balance of the account.

Gold and Silver

Vantage FX has an exclusive partnership with the Australian Gold and Silver Exchange (AGSX), which was crucial in forming our Islamic gold and silver trade offering. Islamic Gold and Silver trading must have a physical gold and silver backing, and our partnership with AGSX has made this possible.

Oil

In order to make our Oil CFD compliant for our Islamic clients, our prices are tied to the price of Oil Futures from exchanges around the world without accruing any positive or negative swaps. Tap into volatile Oil trading markets today.

Clients can be assured that they are trading real prices and affecting prices via supply demand with their own positions.  The client is always responsible for the effect that his order has on the underlying market.  Positions, even small during times of low liquidity, can move the market.  The client has full ownership of his trade and its effect.
