Standard Account

Change in Initial Margin Requirements

Effective close of business on 8 June, 2015 AxiTrader's initial margin system for currencies will be changed.

As each currency pair has its own particular liquidity, volatility and differing political and economic risks, Their initial margining system needs to adapt and reflect the underlying market conditions.

The immediate impact for clients who trade some currency pairs will be an increase in initial margin requirements. This means that the portion of your account balance allocated to a particular trade will now be a better reflection of the currency's risk.

The new initial margin requirements will apply to all open transactions from close of business on 8 June, 2015.

All clients are advised to ensure they have enough Equity in their accounts to meet the new requirements and avoid any unnecessary liquidation of positions.
