Temporary Margin Change – German Federal Election

21 Sep 2017

Dear Clients,

Due to the upcoming German Federal Election on 24th September 2017, we are expecting EUR FX pairs and EUR CFDs to exhibit higher volatility over this period. Whilst these market conditions may present some trading opportunities, you should be aware that they may also result in wider spreads and reduced liquidity during periods of particularly high market volatility.

For our new services which launched on August 1st, details of the margin changes made to products on our Z.comTradeUKLtd-Live-UK server are noted below:

For the purposes of risk control, the required margin of EUR FX pairs and EUR CFDs will be increased temporarily from approximately 09:00 GMT time on 22nd September, until 09:00 GMT on 25th September. After 09:00 GMT on 25th September, the temporarily adjusted required margin levels will be reset to the existing levels.

For the purposes of risk control, the required margin of EUR FX pairs will be increased temporarily from market open on the evening of 24th September, until market close on 29th September.
