It has started.
Be careful - read emails or news from your broker and check what measures (like decreasing leverage) is your broker going to perfrorm.

Hi vontogr,
thanks for your alert. I would kindly ask, what do you personally expect to happen or not?

I agree, one should be careful when trading in the next few days, if we trade at all. There will likely be a lot of volatility. More and more brokers are are hiking margin requirements to all or select instruments in an attempt to protect themselves and their clients from unexpected market moves which may result in heavy losses (https://www.forexbrokerz.com/news/us-elections-alpari-vantage-fx-dukascopy-hantec-markets). Trade carefully and don't forget to look up whether your broker has changed their trading conditions.

I agree, especially important to check these updates when programming EAs!
