What is an STA and how are they debited?

An STA (Safe Trade Action) is an instrument which gives you the opportunity to be refunded part of your invested funds in a contract when your trade turns out to be a loss-making one.

If a client has an STA on their account, when a Fix-Contract is bought, one STA will be debited and a shield will appear next to the number of the contract purchased.

If an STA was spent when purchasing a contract, any loss when the contract expires will be fixed and you will be credited the nominal cost of the STA as a payout.

If an STA was spent when purchasing a contract where your trade is profitable or where you choose to expire the contract early, there will be no STA payout, with the STA being used up. Any payout for a contract in these cases will be paid in full.

The number of STAs on a trading account is shown in the top right-hand corner of the platform.

Example. Let’s say that you have 10 STAs on your trading account with a nominal cost of 1 USD each. When purchasing a Fix-Contract, one STA will be debited from your account, with a shield appearing to the right of the Fix-Contract number.

If a loss was made on the Fix-Contract, you will have the nominal value of the STA – 1 USD – credited to your account as a payout.

If you made a profit or decided to expire the contract early, you will receive the payout for the contract, but no payout for the STA.

If a loss was incurred on a Fix-Contract at expiration, your account will be credited with the nominal cost of the STA - 1 USD - as a payout.

Please note:

The nominal cost of STA may vary according to the terms of the promotion.
