easyMarkets maintains 200:1 leverage, guarantees stops over Brexit

Unlike most forex brokers, who hike margins over approaching Brexit referendum, easyMarkets announced that it will maintain its 200:1 leverage levels (i.e. 0.5% margin requirement).


An increasing number of brokers raised their margin requirements on GBP currency pairs and/or UK and European indices as a preventive measure against high market volatility. Besides, many of them also make other amendments to their trading conditions, such as increasing stop out levels or restricting net open positions on GBP crosses.


Here are some of the brokers that temporarily increased margins lately: FxPro, RoboForex, HotForex, FxOpen, Orbex, ActivTrades, Dukascopy, FXCM, Oanda, IG Group, JustForex, Z.com Trade, FxPrimus. There is clearly a marked trend here, which is not surprising, as the Swiss Franc spike occurred only a year and a half ago.


CySEC-regulated easyMarkets (formerly known as Easy-Forex), however, obviously decided not to go with the flow. In a note to its clients the broker says it is aware of the fact that increased volatility for GBP pairs over Brexit is risky, but it also provides traders with opportunities to earn lucrative profits. That is why it will not lower its leverage levels on GBP crosses and other currency pairs.


Furthermore, easyMarkets stated that it will continue to provide guaranteed stop losses and fixed spreads to its retail clients, which served well during the CHF events of January 2015, so hopefully they will also protect traders during the Brexit.


Earlier this month easyMarkets announced it is launching options trading on the movement of the British pound (GBP) amidst the deep market volatile resulting from the upcoming UK referendum.
In order to decide whether the country should exit the EU (aka Brexit) or remain in the union (aka Bremain), UK will hold a referendum on June 23. Considering the on-going voter turnaround, both scenarios seem likely, and even experts are not certain what will be the outcome of the vote. One thing is sure, and that is charts of GBP crosses will resemble cardiograms of heart disease patients.


CySEC-regulated online brokerage easyForex, which officially rebranded to easyMarkets in January 2016, is founded in 2003 and operates in 160 countries. It offers trading in more than 100 currency pairs, CFDs on indices, commodities, metals and options on both its proprietary platform and the ever popular MetaTrader 4.
