Notes:

  1. If a position is opened or closed (fully or partially) within an hour of the close of the Friday trading session on any given instrument, the leverage applied to all positions is 1:50 (for positions in Volatility index futures CFDs – 1:5). This includes positions opened prior to the pre-close hour but does not include those with lower leverage rates (e.g. 1:2). The above term has an extended duration for a number of CFDs on indices and bonds, the relevant data is specified on the instrument pages in Contract Specifications. If an open position was affected by the session pre-close leverage reduction, we will re-enable previously used higher leverage for all positions in this instrument before the market for this instrument re-opens, typically within a few hours from the latest daily session close time.It also takes into consideration the leverage rate settings you may have selected in your Trader’s Room (please see Note 2 below). Please also note that the above terms can be applied with special notice to other days of the working week in cases where holidays or extraordinary events may affect the trading schedule or available liquidity.
  2. All clients have an option to decrease or increase the account`s leverage manually by selecting one of the leverage rates in the account settings in the Trader`s Room. Please note that the change of account`s leverage has an immediate effect on the margin value of all open positions. If you choose to select a decreased leverage rate, the notional value ranges applicable to your positions begin from those specified for the selected leverage in the above tables.
  3. Margin requirements for markets other than listed above, can be found in Contract Specifications by selecting the needed instrument in the look-up menu.
