B.I.C Markets top priority is making your trading experience great by providing negative balance protection to our clients: Our risk management system ensures that the client cannot lose more than he initially invested. When opted-in to the Paid to Trade program, if the balance becomes negative due to Stop Out, B.I.C Markets will automatically compensate the amount and adjust the account balance to zero. B.I.C Markets guarantees that your risk is limited only to the funds you have deposited into your account. Please note that the negative balance protection does not include any debt payments from the Client. Therefore, our clients are protected from losses beyond their initial deposit.

Due to high volatility and price gaps, a customer can lose his/her equity. B.I.C Markets compensates the account balance to zero. To prevent your account from meeting negative balance, here are some preventive measures you may use:

  • Set your stop loss
  • Be responsible with leverage
  • Don’t over trade

Stop Out When Using Credit

When trading with a deposit bonus, stop out will occur to prevent the account from going into negative balance. This is when;

Account Equity – Credit = Zero

If stop out does occur, the credit will be automatically removed and any negative balance will be reset to back to zero. You just need to top-up your account to receive another bonus and continue trading to receive further rebates.
