Due to the 2nd round of Presidential Vote in France on May 7th 2017, FXOpen will increase margin requirements up to 5 times their normal level starting from May 3rd 2017 without further notice. The changes will affect all financial instruments that include EURO.
Between May 3rd and May 9th traders may also experience high volatility, increased margin, low liquidity and wider spreads.
Margin requirements will return back to their normal values with the market opening on May 9th.
Please remember that abnormal market conditions increase the risk of slippage. We urge traders to take all necessary precautions trading during this period and ensure they have sufficent margin to cover their position. Kind regards, The FXOpen UK Team
