Maximum instrument exposure
Following EURCHF move on 15.01.2015, Dukascopy Group continues improving its risk management. To ensure stability of Dukascopy Group entities, stress tests using different scenarios have been performed. The following assumptions were chosen: 5% gap/shift of EUR vs other currencies during a trading day and 10% gap/shift of EUR vs other currencies during the weekend. Based on the stress test results Dukascopy has developed measures to guarantee the stability of the group. New limitation of maximum net exposure starting from 21.06.2016 will be introduced to all group entities customers (read more). Dukascopy believes these measures will eliminate repetition of Alpari UK/FXCM scenarios and will not influence the large majority of Dukascopy retail clients.
