FAQs

What is FX?

Any time you send or receive money from overseas and change the currency, that is an FX (Foreign Exchange) transaction. We help to make this easier and cheaper to do.

When will the money be received?

Transfers to Western Europe and the US are made the same day. Funds travelling further East typically take two days. Our customer service team can advise you of the likely delivery date for other currencies.

How do I pay for (settle) my trade?

By online or bank transfer. We do not accept cash or cheque for settlement.

How does Circadian FX save me money?

You deal close to mid-market rates on major currency pairs – mid-market means the best possible rate. Clear pricing, an easy system and fast settlement save you time and money.

What is the cost, are there any hidden fees?

Setting up an account costs nothing and there is no obligation to use it. The pricing is clear, the rate you deal at is not adjusted in any way and there are no hidden fees.

Is dealing with Circadian FX going to be a complicated process?

No, you can exchange currency online and send it to the destination account in less than a minute. Get in touch for more information and we can walk you through a demo.

What are spot and forward contracts?

A currency bought for immediate, i.e. same day delivery, is a spot contract. A currency bought for delivery at a later date (up to one year) is a forward contract. Forward contracts can be used to lock in an exchange rate today for a future date.
