The change will only affect the accounts of clients who are categorised as professionals and have access to higher leverage rates.

Amended margin requirements will be applied to all open positions on instruments containing the Czech koruna and Hong Kong dollar after the session close on Friday, 10 January, 2020.

We kindly ask you to review your account status prior to the weekend to ensure you meet the new margin requirements.
