The table above shows the period of increased marginal requirements in “Margin Increased from”(Margin change date) and “Margin Increased until”(Period of event ending date) columns.

In this regard, you are recommended that you cut the volume of previously opened and future positions to the admissible level of your deposit or that you deposit more funds to your account.

Moreover, the event may take place before the Period of event ending date, so margin may be reduced to 2.5% before the stipulated date.
