FXTM changes margin requirements for gold and silver


Leading EU broker FXTM informed its clients on Thursday that it will change its Margin Requirements for Spot Metals on all servers except Pro, as of August 10, 2016.  In fact, the margin requirements for these products are hiked significantly.


If previously clients of FXTM were able to utilize leverage up to 1:500 for trades in spot metals with nominal value of $2,5 million, after the new requirements apply, they would only be allowed to use leverage up to 1:50, since they would fall within the fourth category (of trades with notional value from $1 000 000 to $4 000 000).


Here are the new margin requirements applicable to spot metals, the previous ones being indicated in brackets:

According to the announcement on its website, FXTM the new requirements will be applied in case of any activity on the trading account (opened, closed or modified positions).


FXTM is famous for providing high leverage levels – up to 1:1000 for currency pairs on most account types. The new margin requirements to spot metals, however, do not apply to Pro accounts, as the maximum leverage there is capped to 1:200.
