Admiral Markets amends margin requirements

Jan 19 2017
Jonathan Smith

Admiral Markets, a European forex and CFD broker, said it is amending the margin requirements on the instruments it offers on some of the live trading accounts. 

According to the broker, the changes will apply to all positions opened on Admiral.Markets and Admiral.Prime accounts prior to 9 January 2017 (i.e. under the old margin terms) and will take place during the server maintenance on January 21-22. 
The reason for this is the 1:500 max leverage on CHF pairs and some CFDs that was introduced recently, has raised the margin and DAX30, GOLD, for example, that was introduced earlier this month, provides a higher leverage for smaller positions on a number of popular instruments, such as DAX30, GOLD, USDCHF and others, while there is no option for clients to decrease the margin values for old positions.
Hence, the broker advises its clients to make sure they have enough funds to cover the current margin requirements for all their positions, as leverage rates of 1:50 and/or 1:10 can be applied to some parts of large positions.
The changes will not affect Admiral Markets clients with Admiral.Markets (ex-Pro) accounts on the AM-Live3 trading server who are still using the old margin requirements. 
Starting from January 21, 2017, the pre-close margining terms will be as follows:
If a position is opened or closed (fully or partially) on an Admiral.Markets or Admiral.Prime account within an hour of the close of the Friday trading session on any given instrument, the leverage applied to all positions will be 1:50. This will include positions opened prior to the pre-close hour but will not include those with lower leverage rates (e.g. 1:10). The terms will apply with  extended duration on a number of CFDs on cash indices and bonds already listed in the broker's contract specifications. 
The margin value of positions with the leverage rate of 1:50 applied during the pre-close hour will be automatically recalculated on weekends. By the session opening on Mondays the leverage applied to such positions will reflect their notional value as per general margining terms.
Those weekend margin requirements will be also applied to other days of the week, whenever they happen to be holidays. 
Admiral Markets also said it has added the option to manually change leverage for holders of Admiral.Markets and Admiral.Prime accounts, through their Trader's Room. 
Admiral Markets Group is licensed by the Estonian Financial Supervision Authority. It consists of several sister companies, regulated by UK's FCA, the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission and the Australian Securities and Investment Commission.
The brokerage offers trading in forex and CFDs on stocks, indices, precious metals and energy.
