Dear Traders and Investors!
On June 23rd 2016, the United Kingdom will hold a referendum on Brexit, the country’s exiting the European Union (EU). Therefore, all currency pairs with the British Pound (GBP) might get more volatile, and, as a result, the liquidity might reduce significantly. RoboForex, following the regulator’s recommendations, makes changes in the conditions of trading these instruments in order to decrease risks for the Company’s clients.
