Communication of Changes to Margin Rates, Spreads and Guaranteed Stop Orders

On Sunday 24th September 2017, Federal elections will be held in Germany to elect the members of the 19th Bundestag. Due to expected increased volatility, product parameters will be changed for a range of products.

Which products are impacted, when and how?

Selected EU Indices, German Bonds and EUR FX will be amended as follows. Please see the link for a list of products.

  1. Guaranteed stop losses will no longer apply. All existing and new stop loss orders will be non-guaranteed; this will be amended by close of business on Wednesday 20th September 2017
  2. Base margin rates will be increased by a factor of 2 (e.g. from 1% to 2%) for all selected products. EU Indices & German Bonds will have a margin increase cap of 2% and EUR FX will have a margin increase cap of 5%. This will be amended by close of business on Wednesday 20th September 2017
  3. Product spreads may be subject to widening; in particular selected FX currency pairs and EU out-of-hours indices.

In the event that your account is in margin deficit as a result of the margin rate increases above, you will be required to fund your account by 1600h (GMT) on Friday 22nd September 2017. Failure to do so, may result in automatic closure of positions.

Product parameters will be re-assessed after the election has taken place with parameters normalising once normal market conditions return.
