Publication Date: June 25, 2015

Dear Clients,

Due to the possibility of a Greek default and increased volatility on currency pairs which involve the euro, we would like to inform you that from 29th June, 2015, temporary limits may be set across a range of trading conditions:

  • The size of opened positions;
  • The total volume of openable positions.

In case of low liquidity, the spread may be widened and instruments may be set to Close Only mode.

Furthermore, we would like to bring to your attention that from 29th June, 2015, the marginal group for EURUSD and EURJPY currency pairs will be temporarily changed to FX Special and also the marginal requirements for the FX Special group will undergo some temporary changes:
