The above schedule could be subject to change.

As a result of the low liquidity and therefore high volatility of the market around Christmas, the following changes in the trading conditions will be in effect from 24.12.2010 until 03.01.2011: the maximum leverage on all accounts will be 1:100; there will be higher spreads and increased Limit and Stop levels on all instruments; some instruments may be unavailable for trading during business hours.

Normal trading conditions will be restored on January 3th, 2011.

During this period, Alpari recommends:

  • Keeping your Margin Level no less than 1000%
  • Reducing your exposure in the market
  • Protecting open positions with stop-loss orders.

If you have any questions, please contact our Client Support: +44 8449 869559.

Best Regards,
