We would like to inform you that Constitutional referendum in Italy will be held this Sunday, December 4, 2016. The upcoming event can provoke a sharp increase of volatility on financial markets and lead to the increased trading risks as a consequence.
In order to provide the additional protection measures of customer funds in AMarkets, margin requirements across several instruments may be changed for all types of accounts.
- DE.30, GER30 up to 2% (maximum leverage is 1:50, percentage 1000%)
- ITA.40, ITA40 up to 3% (maximum leverage is 1:33, percentage 1500%)
This change will affect current open positions and the new ones. All changes will be applied on December 1, 2016, on MetaTrader4 and xStation platforms.
We will keep you posted regarding lowering margins to standard levels.
