Forex Margin Requirements

Due to the current market environment, FX & CFD margin requirements are regularly adjusted.

Please note that this measure applies to professional clients only. Premium, Prime & Elite retail clients are already protected by the permanent restrictions applied by the FCA on 1 August 2019 on leverage cap and are therefore excluded.

The current margin rates applying to professional clients can be consulted in the table below.

(Please note that our FX Product Guide will not be updated with regards to the rates listed below. However, all other terms and conditions set forth in the guide remain valid.)
