To mitigate potential market volatility from the final round of the French Election on 7 May 2017, Binary.com will be adopting a margin requirement of 2% for the following EUR pairs on our MT5 platform:

  • EUR/AUD
  • EUR/CAD
  • EUR/CHF
  • EUR/GBP
  • EUR/JPY
  • EUR/NZD
  • EUR/USD
  • EUR/NOK
  • EUR/PLN
  • EUR/SEK

The margin requirements for our CFDs will remain at 2%.

The changes mentioned above will be implemented starting 5 May 2017 (Friday) at 12:00PM GMT.

We will continue to monitor market conditions and risk implications after the French Elections to determine the future margin requirements of all affected currency pairs and CFDs.

Important reminder for all traders

Please ensure that you possess sufficient equity in your trading accounts in order to accommodate these new margin requirements.
