SCAM ALERT

As can be read in online media*, "dukascopi" or "Mercure Services Ltd" currently pretends to offer brokerage services from Switzerland, at same place as Dukascopy Bank, which is untrue.

Be warned that this deceiving scheme has no relation whatsoever with Dukascopy Group. In our opinion this is a scam.

Live launch of the all-new JForex Web 3 platform

After a successful test period on demo environment the all-new JForex Web 3 platform has now become available on LIVE!

Additionally to the features of the version released on demo in June 2017 the platform has been supplemented with a new module – Strategies. From now on clients interested in automated trading based on JForex API can manage their strategies also from the JForexWeb, which was previously impossible. Strategies can be loaded from JCloud, VisualJForex or the user’s machine to be remotely run on the Strategy Server.

We remind that the new JForexWeb’s interface is characterized by its maximum resemblance to JForex 3 platform. This is meant to provide an easier adjustment for those clients already familiar with JForex. The new outlook will generally facilitate the design integrity and recognisability of Dukascopy platforms.

The new JForex Web 3 platform features 46 trading indicators, it offers chart trading, workspace saving on JCloud as well as live market news and calendars. Also, the platform is much better adapted to work with a large number and types of trading instruments, which currently includes FX, precious metals, CFDs on indices, commodities and single stocks.

  • from the 13st of July 2017 on DEMO

Strategies and indicators created in JForex and/or VisualJForex will not be influenced by the change and will continue to be supported by Dukascopy Group and its white label partners.

U.K. General Elections

We would like to draw your attention to the possible impact of the upcoming U.K General Election on the liquidity in the FX Market.

It is possible that the outcome will significantly reduce liquidity and increase price volatility. It is for these reasons that Dukascopy Bank and Dukascopy Europe will temporarily reduce maximum exposure in GBP related FX instruments to 5 million in primary currency and for GBR.IDX to 10 contracts. Any client that is currently holding exposures that exceed these maximums may maintain, but not increase them.

These restrictions are expected to remain in force until market closure on Friday 9 June.

French election: Weekend leverage extension

On Sunday 7 May, the French are heading to the polls again for round two of the Presidential election between the final two candidates Mrs Marine Le Pen and Mr Emmanuel Macron.

Due to possible volatility that the outcome may cause to financial markets, Dukascopy will extend the weekend margin policy by a few hours into the session starting Sunday 7 May 21GMT. There is no fixed time schedule when normal margin policy is restored; it will be done without additional announcement after the election results are known and once trading activity can be considered to be normal.

Furthermore we like to draw our clients attention to the fact that large price gaps may occur between the market closure on Friday 5 May at 21:00 GMT and market opening on Sunday 7 May. Holding any position over the weekend may lead to substantial losses even if leverage use is reduced.
