A causa di un alto rischio di forte volatilità, di bassa liquidità e di significativi gap di prezzo durante la giornata elettorale Americana, Dukascopy ha deciso di adottare le seguenti contromisure:
  • Domenica 6 Novembre, alle 22:00 GMT prima dell'apertura del mercato, la leva consentita su USD/MXN sarà di 1:10. Questa restrizione rimarrà attiva fino a nuove comunicazioni.
  • Martedì 8 Novembre alle 10:00 GMT, la leva consentita su tutti gli strumenti sarà diminuita a livelli dell' over-the-weekend leverage conditions  su tutti i conti il cui saldo, al giorno precedente, è superiore a 30.000 USD (saldo del conto al 7 Novembre).
Tutti gli altri conti al di sotto dei 30.000 USD o equivalente che al 8 di Novembre beneficieranno di un incremento significativo o una perdita notevole verrano presi in esame uno ad uno.

L'annullamento della riduzione della leva finanziaria è previsto nella giornata di Mercoledì 9 Novembre alle 05:00 GMT. Dukascopy si riserva il diritto di prolungare questa misura di sicurezza se necessario.

Video-identification revolution at Dukascopy Bank

Paperless, swift and easy onboarding…

Following the issuance of the FINMA circular 2016/7 on Video-identification dated March 2016, Dukascopy Bank was eager to be among the first financial institutions to use an in-house developed video-based on-boarding system, fully integrated to its IT infrastructure.

Dukascopy Bank is delighted to announce that, from now on, opening an account and starting to trade at Dukascopy Bank can be done within 1 hour.

This is a tremendous breakthrough and improvement in client experience. Dukascopy Bank was often criticized on Internet forums because of its long and bureaucratic account opening process requiring 10 days in average and up to 1 month.

What makes the opening so much faster?

Dukascopy Bank published strong half-year financial results 2016

Dukascopy Bank has reached a new record in total income at CHF 17.2 million, 1.6% above the first semester 2015 which already was a record semester.

Due to higher operating expenses (+15.2%) reflecting IT developments and new marketing initiatives, the half year net profit is 25.8% below the same period 2015 but still is very satisfactory at CHF 2.5 million.

At Group level, consolidated total income is 2.4% above the first semester 2015 at CHF 18.1 million. However, the initial losses of our new subsidiary Dukascopy Japan, which is in launching phase, negatively affected the half-year consolidated net profit which amounts to CHF 1.9 million. Dukascopy Japan is showing promising growth and is expected to break-even in 2017.

Those figures reflect a very solid performance and continued stability in Dukascopy Bank and Dukascop Group financial situation.

We thank our clients, employees and counterparties for their trust and loyalty.
Complete individual and consolidated balance sheets and statements of income are available here.
