What is GIC?

GICTrade is the world’s first Peer to Peer (P2P) Forex Trading Platform that allows investors to choose to be a Trader or a Market Maker. The GICTrade platform uses Metatrader 5 and Blockchain technology to produce safe and transparent trading for all users.

Why is GIC Started to be A New Breakthrough?

GICTrade is the first Forex trading platform that gives access to the investors to become Traders or Market Makers, in other words, investors as buyers will meet investors directly as sellers (Peer to Peer). With this concept, certainly, GICTrade becomes a platform at a very different level from common brokers:
  1. Fair and impartial to anyone since the Trader and the Market Maker are equal investors.
  2. By bringing together investors to other investors without passing through an institution or marketing broker, the trading costs on GICTrade reach the minimum rate: no commission, free swap, and low spread.

What are the advantages of GIC compared to other brokers?

GICTrade is a P2P Trading Platform, not a broker or broker. GICTrade cooperates with licensed brokers and traders in Indonesia in recording and reporting customer trading on GICTrade. Once again, the P2P concept (customers meet directly with customers) is very powerful and opens many advantages for customers including:

1. Increase the trust of customers who trade on the GICTrade platform because GICTrade does not side with anyone who is the same as a customer.
2. GICTrade's P2P trading ecosystem without going through institutions provides the advantage of 'Zero Swap Charges'.
3. Zero Commissions - GIC benefits from network effects which means no commission fees.
4. Low Spread - With the P2P concept, GICTrade is able to provide very competitive and low spreads

Trading Security & Transparency - Blockchain technology strengthens technology security and is also peer to peer which prioritizes transaction transparency, enabling users to trade with confidence. In addition, trading on GIC is also safer, because GIC cooperates with legal brokers and traders and has official licenses in Indonesia for reporting all transactions to the Jakarta Futures Exchange (JFX) and Indonesian Futures Clearing House (KBI) which are under the supervision of CoFTRA.

Why has the SL or TP installed on the price screen, it appears that it has touched the requested price, but not DONE?

It is necessary to know in advance that the SL or TP which is considered "DONE" must meet the following conditions:
  1. Stoploss and Takeprofit levels are considered “DONE” if the Bid/Ask price on GICtrade Metatrader has touched the desired price, unless the price is categorized as “Wrong Quote”
  2. “Wrong Quote” or Quotation Error is: a condition where the available selling price (Bid) or the available buying price (Ask) displayed on MetaTrader 4 or 5 Client Terminal does not reflect the available selling price (Bid) or the available buying price (Ask)/ actual market conditions.
    • The price moves abnormally / wildly (up / down) and quickly from the last price and back again to the previous initial price. The price that occurs in the transaction does not match the market price at that time with reference to the price source in GICTrade.
    • The SL or TP price level that is done is not always done at the posted price, due to the fast movement in the high / "hightick" market.
    • Prices listed on Reuters, Telequote, Bridge and other Data Providers are non-binding reference prices only. Confirmation of "done" or "not done" of SL / TP is based on the Bid / Ask price in the GICTrade Meta trader.
  3. If there is a "Wrong Quote" in the system, then GICTrade has the right to cancel the transaction that occurs with or without the customer's consent.
  4. If there is an unreasonable widening of the spread in the market, the normal spread is: 60 points for Major Rate, 120 points for Cross Rate while for Gold is 100 points.
