Temporary change in margin requirements for currency pairs with GBP and the UK100 index

Dear clients,

We would kindly inform you that due to the upcoming referendum in the UK and its potential effects we are raising margin requirements:

  • up to 2% (maximum leverage is 1:50, percentage 1000%) for all GBP cross-currencies (EURGBP, GBPAUD, GBPCAD, GBPCHF, GBPJPY, GBPUSD, GBPNZD, GBPPLN);
  • up to 3% (maximum leverage 1:33, percentage 1500%) for UK100 index.

This change will affect current open positions and newly opening ones. Changes will be applied on Friday – june 10, 2016, on MetaTrader4 and xStation platforms (between 10am-4pm EETS time) and will remain untouched until further notice.
