Notes:

  1. Margin requirements for markets other than listed above, can be found in Contract Specifications by selecting the needed instrument in the look-up menu.
  2. If a position on any given instrument is opened or closed (fully or partially) within the pre-close period of an hour before the Friday trading session close, the leverage applied to all positions in this same group of instruments 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. 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.
