Reitings: Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star hikes EUR pair margins ahead of German elections

Biedrs kopš Dec 11, 2015  1486 ieraksti mlawson71 Sep 18 2017 at 13:27, one of the retail forex brokerages of Gain Capital, announced it is temporarily increasing the margin requirements on the EUR forex pairs in order to protect its clients from potential market volatility around the upcoming general elections in Germany.(

Even though the outcome of the elections appears predetermined with a stable lead of the ruling coalition of Angela Merkel, a surprise is never impossible and it could affect the markets and the Euro rate significantly.

Are there any other brokers planning to do that?

Many more brokers do decrease leverage
I hope they at least announce it

I like what I trade, I trade what I like

XM and FxPro have also hiked their margins before the elections. (
FxPro even announced that in cases of extreme volatility and lack of liquidity, they may also refuse the opening of new positions, enabling ‘Close Only’ functionality.
