AxiTrader has taken the decision to cease to offer Hong Kong Dollar and Danish Kroner Margin FX Contracts.

This decision is due to a number of interbank foreign exchange market participants withdrawing their market-making or custodial services in these Underlying Instruments. AxiTrader has reasonably determined that it will be unable to maintain an orderly market in these currencies and will therefore cease to offer these contracts.

Under clause 20.1 of the Customer Agreement this email serves as formal notice that AxiTrader will cease to offer the instruments as at Close of Business on Friday 30 January, 2015 (Effective Date).

Customers shall not be able to open new positions from the Close of Business on 23 January, 2014.

When will these changes take effect?

HK Dollar and Danish Kroner contracts will be set to "close only" at Close of Business on Friday 23 January, 2015.

All trading will be suspended at the Close of Business on Friday 30 January, 2014.

What action should I take?

Customers are requested to close all open transactions before 3pm New York time (22:00 Server Time) on 30 January, 2015.

What happens if I do nothing?

AxiTrader will close all open transactions at the prevailing AxiTrader price as at 12pm New York Time (19:00 Server Time) 30 January, 2015

Thursday 22nd of January 2015

Following the latest decision taken by the SNB, a period of extreme volatility was unleashed in the Forex markets. Therefore, we would like to remind you that today, the 22nd of January 2015, the ECB Interest Rate Decision will be released at 12:45 GMT after which a Monetary policy statement and a press conference will take place at 13:30 GMT.

The above news releases are very likely to have a massive impact on the market volatility, causing a spread widening, potential spikes or market gaps, all of which may affect your investment.

While FXCC does not provide trading advice, FXCC strongly recommend that you review your open positions and take every step possible to protect your account from stop out liquidation or from going into a negative balance, due to the tremendous price volatility which may occur.

ECB Interest Rate Decision

Thursday 22nd of January 2015

AxiTrader are writing to let you know about the forthcoming announcement of the key ECB interest rate decision scheduled for Thursday 22nd January at 12:45 GMT (14.45 MT4 Server Time).

Following the announcement at 13.30 GMT (15.30 MT4 Server Time), ECB President Mario Draghi has a scheduled press conference regarding the European Central Bank's policy position.

Whilst the ECB President has telegraphed the likelihood of expanding the quantitative easing program last week's surprise move by the SNB has left markets nervous.

What does this mean for you?

Markets are likely to be volatile and spreads will widen during this period, hence we recommend you take a moment to consider whether this announcement will have any effect on your trading account and take appropriate action (if any) accordingly.
