Changes in margin requirements for the USDRUB current pair
19.12.2014 / 12:56
We’re informing you that because of significant reduction of liquidity for USDRUB and oncoming weekend and holidays, margin requirements for this trading instrument will be changed in the following way:
- For ECN accounts, the leverage for USDRUB positions will be 30 times less than the current leverage of the trading account.
- For Standard and Cent accounts, the leverage for USDRUB positions will be 50 times less than the current leverage of the trading account.
These changes are effective as of December 19th 2014, 5 PM (UTC +2) (an hour before trading session on USDRUB closes) and applied to all USDRUB 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 USDRUB positions on those trading accounts, the leverage for which is less than the maximum possible leverage (1:500 for 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.
