Increase of margin requirements in connection with the second round of elections in France 05.05.2017, 07:56
On May 7th, the second round of presidential elections will take place in France. Therefore, high volatility associated with low liquidity is possible in the market, which increases the risk of committing transactions.
Given the volatility of the situation, as well as the increase in margin requirements of liquidity providers, GKFX reduces the maximum leverage to 1:50 for all EUR and GBP instruments, as well as European indices, for all types of trading accounts. The changes will take effect on May 05, 2017 at 11:00 PM MT.
Please consider this fact in planning your trade.
