GBP Instruments Margin Requirement


In order to prepare for the expected increase in volatility surrounding the 12th December 2019 UK elections, as well as to offer better protection of clients’ funds, Tier1FX International will temporarily increase the margin requirement for all GBP pairs, as well as for UK100, as follows:

Effective at 4pm GMT on Tuesday, 10th December 2019, margin requirement for all GBP FX pairs and UK100 will be increased to 2% (leverage 1:50).

We expect to have margin requirement reverted to normal levels on Friday, 13th Dec 2019, however a further email will be sent to confirm this.

We encourage all traders to closely monitor margin and exposure on these instruments, in order to prevent liquidation and excessive losses.

Please contact us at if you need some further details or assistance.
