Leverage adjustment over weekends and holidays

As part of our risk management system, in order to reduce any unnecessary impact that market volatility may have on clients’ trading account during low volume trading sessions which may move the market, we may reduce ZFX Mini Trading Accounts’ FX and precious metals trading leverage to maximum 1:400, normally 1 hour before market close on Friday, and resume back to original leverage level, normally 0.5 hours after entering into the new trading session.

This applies to all existing open trades, pending orders and new orders.

Similar rules on leverage may also apply during market-moving news releases and holidays subject to announcement.

Leverage adjustment before major economic and market events

As part of our risk management system, in order to reduce any unnecessary impact that market volatility may have on clients’ trading account due to major economic and market events, we may reduce ZFX Mini Trading Accounts’ FX and precious metals trading leverage to maximum 1:400, usually 30 minutes prior to the announcement and resume back to original leverage level, normally 10 minutes after the announcement.

This applies to all existing positions, pending orders and new orders.
