Changes in trading conditions for CHF instruments

19.01.2015 / 21:30

Dear Clients!

We’re informing you that starting 8 AM EET, January 21st 2015, opening new positions for CHF instruments in MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader5 platforms will be available again. The following currency pairs will be fully accessible for trading: AUDCHF, CADCHF, CHFJPY, EURCHF, GBPCHF, NZDCHF, USDCHF.

Along with this, new marginal requirements for the above-mentioned currency pairs will be set:

  • For MetaTrader4 and MetaTrader5 ECN accounts, the leverage for CHF instruments will be 12 times less than the current leverage of the trading account.

  • For MetaTrader4 and MetaTrader5 Standard and Cent accounts, the leverage for CHF instruments will be 20 times less than the current leverage of the trading account.

  • For cTrader ECN accounts, the maximum leverage for CHF instruments will be limited to 1:25, regardless of the current leverage of the trading account.

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

Please note: these changes may result in significant increase of margin requirements for already open CHF positions on your trading accounts.

At present, all CHF instruments are influenced by substantial volatility and low liquidity, which implies additional risks when trading these instruments. The purpose of these new marginal requirements, which will be in effect until the market situation stabilizes, is to decrease both clients’ and the Company’s risks concerning the above-mentioned currency pairs.

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

Sincerely,
RoboForex
