Margin Increase for USD and JPY Markets

The FXOpen Team

Dear Trader,Further to the news posted on the 17th August, due to the increased political tension caused by North Korea launching missiles directly over Japan last night, FXOpen is immediately increasing margin requirements on USD and JPY markets by 3 times their normal value. If the situation escalates, we may further increase margin to 5 times their normal level.  These changes may help reduce the risk against the potential high volatility, rapid price movements or market gaps that may occur in case of further political escalation. Please consider this information in your trading and ensure you have sufficient funds on your account to maintain your positions.If you require any further clarification please contact customer support or you account manager.  Kind Regards,

The FXOpen UK Team
