High Volatility and Increased Margin Expected Due to the US Presidential Election
High volatility affecting all financial instruments is expected due to the Presidential Election, that will be held in the United States on November 8th 2016.
FXOpen UK may increase margin requirements up to 5 times their normal level starting from November 3rd without prior notice. The changes will affect all financial instruments, including indices.
Throughout this period traders may experience changes in trading conditions such as high volatility, increased margin, low liquidity and wider spreads.
Margin requirements will return back to their normal values with the market opening on November 14th.
We urge traders to take into account that abnormally low liquidity and wide spreads increase the risk of slippage. Please consider these circumstances when planning your trading activities for the following week.
