Notes:

  1. If a position is opened or closed (fully or partially) within an hour of the close of the Friday trading session on any given instrument, the leverage applied to all positions is 1:50. This includes positions opened prior to the pre-close hour but does not include those with lower leverage rates (e.g. 1:10). The above term has an extended duration for a number of CFDs on cash indices and bonds, the relevant data is specified on the instrument pages in Contract Specifications. The margin value of positions with the leverage rate of 1:50 applied during the pre-close hour is automatically recalculated on weekends. By the session opening on Mondays, the leverage applied to such positions reflects their notional value as per general margining terms. It also takes into consideration the leverage rate settings you may selected in your Trader's Room (please, see Note 2 below). Please also note that the above terms can be applied on a special notice to other days of the working week in cases where holidays may affect the trading schedule.
  2. Margin requirements for markets other than listed above, can be found in Contract Specifications by selecting the needed instrument in the look-up menu.
