Changes in margin requirements for metals

15.05.2015 / 13:20

Dear Clients!

We’re informing you that starting May 26th 2015, 8 AM EET, new margin requirements will be introduced for MetaTrader4 and MetaTrader5 trading platforms. The leverage for XAUUSD and XAGUSD will be 50% of the current leverage of your trading account.

These changes will be applied to all XAUUSD and XAGUSD positions, both the ones that are already open and will be opened in the future.

Please note that these changes may result in significant increase of margin requirements for already open XAUUSD and XAGUSD positions on your trading accounts, the leverage on which is less than the maximum admissible value (1:1000 – for MT4 standard and cent accounts, 1:500 – for MT5 standard and cent accounts, 1:300 – for ECN accounts).

We recommend you to modify the amount and the volume of your open positions in view of the foregoing.
