Changes to Margin Requirements for Exotic Forex Pairs

April 13, 2020 18:00

Dear Trader,

In response to the current market conditions we will make further changes to our margin rates in Forex CFDs on exotic pairs to ensure they accurately reflect current levels of market volatility and liquidity.

Starting from 00:00 EET on Wednesday, April 15th, we will reduce the maximum possible leverage available to our clients on all FX pairs with CZK, HUF, NOK, PLN, SEK, SGD, CNH, RON to 1:25.

The new reduced leverage will be applied to both new and existing positions. Please be advised to check your account status in advance to make sure it fully meets the new margin requirements.

Retail clients who trade with leverage rates of 1:20 or lower are not subject to these changes.

We remind our Professional Clients that our negative account balance protection policy does not apply in abnormal market conditions and it is important to carefully check your own account status.

We recommend that both Retail and Professional clients review their exposure in all affected instruments and prior to the upcoming change to adjust it to acceptable risk levels if required.

Kind regards,

Admiral Markets
