Improved Brexit Trading Conditions

Following increased demand from our clients we are increasing leverage for all FX pairs. To protect our clients against sharp market movements, we will be reviewing our trading conditions for the days leading up to the referendum, as well as during and in the aftermath of it.

  • While we will make all possible efforts to keep spreads at a minimum, wider spreads are expected due to high volatility
  • Prior to, during and after the referendum, fixed spreads may be allowed to float so as to reflect underlying market conditions
  • In case of extreme volatility ‘Close Only’ functionality may be enabled

The following changes will be applied today (17/06/2016) after Market Close, to both existing and new positions:

MetaTrader 4 / MetaTrader 5 cTrader
Trading Instruments 1:200 1:100 1:50 1:25 1:100 1:50
Forex Majors 0.01-5.00* 5.01-10.00* 10.01-50.00* 50.01* + ALL n/a
Forex Minors / Exotics 0.01-2.00* 2.01-5.00* 5.01-15.00* 15.01* + ALL n/a

RUB Cross 1:50 1:50 n/a
Metals 0.01-15.00* 15.01-30.00* 30.01*+ n/a n/a ALL

As always, we stand by our commitments to our clients and assure you that all trading will continue to be in line with our existing ‘Terms & Conditions’. In addition, our Negative Balance Protection (NBP) will continued to be offered to all our clients, provided NBP is not manipulated or abused.
