Brexit-related margin policy update

In addition to already announced leverage reduction to 1:30 on GBP currency pairs and 1:10 on GBR.IDX index, Dukascopy will temporary decrease maximum leverage on EUR currency pairs to 1:30, and on European related indexes DEU.IDX/EUR, ESP.IDX/EUR, EUS.IDX/EUR and FRA.IDX/EUR to 1:10 as of Wednesday, 22 June 2016 18:00 GMT.

It is expected that the special leverage requirements will be removed on Sunday at the market opening, 26 June 2016. However, Dukascopy reserves the right to prolong or reconsider the special leverage conditions for GBP instruments if found necessary based on the market reaction to the results of the vote.

Reduction of leverage on GBP instruments amidst Brexit-related volatility expectations.

Due to the probability of high volatility, periods of low liquidity and risk of significant price gaps that might appear on GBP trading instruments following the Referendum on EU membership held in the United Kingdom on 23 June 2016 (also referred to as "Brexit" vote), Dukascopy plans to temporarily decrease maximum leverage on GBP currency pairs to 1:30 and to 1:10 on GBR.IDX index CFD as of Wednesday, 22 June 2016 18:00 GMT.

In effect this means that on the week of the "Brexit" referendum the over-the-weekend leverage mode (1:30) for GBP instruments will be applied 2 days earlier than usual. Exception is made for GBR.IDX where the special leverage mode will be 1:10.

It is expected that the special leverage requirements will be removed on Sunday at the market opening, 26 June 2016. However, Dukascopy reserves the right to prolong or reconsider the special leverage conditions for GBP instruments if found necessary based on the market reaction to the results of the vote.

Reduction of maximum leverage on HKD positions (updated)

Following yesterday’s announcement regarding the impending reduction of maximum leverage on USD/HKD currency pair to 1:10 amidst concerns of peg abolition and possible subsequent high volatility and low liquidity, we would like to specify that this reduction will also be applied to all HKD pairs, including HKD/JPY, CAD/HKD and EUR/HKD.

Reduced leverage on HKD-containing pairs has already been applied to accounts with no open HKD positions. We remind that reduction of maximum leverage for HKD positions to 1:10 on remaining accounts will happen on 9 March 2016 at 11:00 GMT.

Reduction of maximum leverage on USD/HKD exposures

Due to possibility of abolishment of the USD/HKD peg and the probable subsequent high volatility and low liquidity on that currency pair, there is an increasing risk of significant price gaps, which may cause negative equity on client accounts. Because of that Dukascopy Bank and Dukascopy Europe are forced to reduce maximum leverage for exposures on USD/HKD to 1:10 as of 9 March 2016 at 11:00 GMT.

Traders are invited to estimate their margin usage at the moment that the leverage reduction on USD/HKD will be applied and adjust their exposure if needed.

Please note that for all accounts where there is no such USD/HKD exposure the lower maximum leverage will be applied today, 3 March 2016 after 14:00 GMT.
