Adjustments to Oil Margin Requirement

  • 22 Apr 2020

Dear Client,

Please note that due to the continued increase in uncertainty and volatility in the market, it has become necessary for us to adjust the margin requirements for oil instruments—USOUSD and UKOUSD.

The change is effective from Thursday, April 23rd 2020 (Server Time 00:00). It will apply to both new and existing positions.

Please find the information as follows.

Contract For Differences
Instruments / Symbol Leverage Margin (%)
Spot WTI Crude Oil / USOUSD 1:10 10
Spot Brent Crude Oil / UKOUSD 1:10 10

We would like to remind you to promptly review any open or existing trades in your trading account and ensure you have sufficient margin to manage all positions. 

These changes are temporary and will return to higher leverage as soon as possible.
