From 01:00 server time (GMT 3) on Thursday, 23rd June 2016, the margin required for both new and existing positions will be temporarily increased for all instruments to:
Shortly after the announcement of the results of the UK Referendum expected on 24th June 2016, the margin required for both new and existing positions will be reduced for all currency pairs, Gold and Silver to 1% (100:1 leverage).
This temporary measure will be completely waived prior to the market opening of Monday, 27th June 2016, and the margin requirement on all instruments will be automatically readjusted in accordance with the previous leverage settings of each client’s accounts and instruments.
Clients who will be trading these pairs should ensure that their accounts are sufficiently funded in order to avoid any disturbances from possible margin calls and/or stop-outs in their trading activity.
