position limit

Definition

Forex

  • The highest amount of open forex trades or futures contracts that a trader can hold for speculative purposes. While retail forex brokers often to set a client's position limit by the amount of margin they deposit, the position limit for a futures contract is set by either the exchange where it is traded, or by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).
