Due to the current high volatility and low liquidity on USD/CNH, there is an increasing risk of significant price gaps, which may cause negative equity on client accounts. Because of that Dukascopy Bank and Dukascopy Europe are forced to reduce maximum leverage for exposures on USD/CNH to 1:10 as of 15 January 2016 at 11:00 GMT.
Traders are invited to estimate their margin usage at the moment that the leverage reduction on USD/CNH will be applied and adjust their exposure if needed.
Please note that for all accounts where there is no such USD/CNH exposure the lower maximum leverage will be applied today, 12 January 2016.
Please further note that Swaps in USD/CNH have seen a dramatic price shift from less than 10 pips last week to above 100 pips as of today (for long USD positions).
