FXOpen AU Warns about High Volatility Risks and Increased Margin Ahead of the US Election

High volatility affecting all financial instruments is expected due to the Presidential Election, that will be held in the United States on November 8th 2016. In connection with this FXOpen AU may increase margin requirements up to 5 times their normal level starting from November 3rd without prior notice.

The changes will affect all financial instruments, including indices. Traders may experience changes in trading conditions such as

  • high volatility
  • increased margin
  • low liquidity
  • wider spreads

Margin requirements will return back to their normal values with the market opening on November 14th.

We urge traders to take into account, that abnormally low liquidity and wide spreads increase the risk of slippage. Please, consider these circumstances when planning your trading activities for the following week.

FXOpen AU strongly recommends considering this information.
