Managing FX exposure is key to today’s international businesses. Using the various FX order types on our online platform can give you the ability to choose the FX rates that are most advantageous to your business and could help protect your business from losses due to adverse FX rate fluctuations.
FX Limit Orders
Imagine the current Spot Rate for AUD/USD is 0.80. You want to make a payment of USD 100,000 but desire a better rate than 0.80. You place an order to buy USD 100,000 at 0.81 and the order is fulfilled when American Express achieves the target.
Stop Loss Order
Imagine you’re concerned that the AUD/USD exchange rate may fall, so you place an order at 0.79 Stop Loss Rate. If the AUD/USD starts to fall, your order will be fulfilled at the first available price American Express can reach.
One Cancels Other Order – FX Limit
You place an FX Order at a target rate of AUD/USD 0.81 and a Stop Loss Order at a rate of 0.79. If American Express can obtain 0.81 within the timeframe specified then the Limit Order is fulfilled and the Stop Loss is cancelled.
One Cancels Other Order – Stop Loss
You place an FX Order at a target rate of AUD/USD 0.81 and a Stop Loss Order at a rate of 0.79. If the market falls below 0.79, the Stop Loss Order will be fulfilled at the first available price.
