Important: XM increases Margin for All Symbols for French Election

XM has announced the changes of Leverage(Margin Requirement) due to upcoming French Presidential Election this weekend.

The French Presidential Elections, which will take place on the 23rd of April 2017, will possibly lead to extreme market volatility, thin market liquidity, abnormal spreads and price gaps in many currencies, commodity and stock markets globally.

To prepare for the above event, XM is going to increase the Margin Requirement as follows:

 Affected MT4 & MT5 Symbol Normal Leverage Leverage for French Election
 FX Pairs & Gold, Silvers Up to 1:888  1% (100:1 leverage)
 All CFDs on Equity Indices, Commodities Up to 1:888  4% (25:1 leverage)

The above changes will be made from 17:00 pm server time (GMT+3) on Friday, 21st of April 2017.

The margin required for all positions (for opening new positions and for maintaining existing positions) will be temporarily increased.

This temporary measure will be completely waived for all positions and margin requirements will revert to normal (as per normal client account leverage settings) by Monday 24th of April 2017, shortly after the announcement of the results of the French presidential elections.

You are recommended to be cautious to market movements through the events, and make sure that you have enough funds to support all positions through the expected high volatility.
