North Korea Situation Update: FXOpen triples margin for USD and JPY pairs
Due to the growing political tension between North Korea and the USA, FXOpen has already tripled margin requirements for USD and JPY pairs.
If the situation escalates, we may further increase the margin requirement up to 5 times the original level as stated in our previous announcement.
We are taking these measures to reduce the risks posed by high volatility, rapid price movements or market gaps that may occur. We would like to take the chance and remind you once again to keep sufficient funds in your account to maintain open positions in the case of margin increase.
