Margin requirements possible changes ahead of OPEC meeting

Dear Clients!

With regard to the upcoming OPEC emergency meeting scheduled on Thursday, April 9, increased volatility and, consequently, spread widening may be observed.

To provide additional protection of client funds, AMarkets may alter its margin requirements for CFDs on Brent, UKOIL, WTI, USOIL on all types of accounts in MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 platforms.

We recommend that you take into account all possible trading risks that may arise and make sure that you have enough funds in your trading accounts to maintain open positions, including locked positions (as a result of the spread widening).

Calculation formula

* Margin for instruments is calculated by the following formula: lot size*contract size/account leverage*margin%. This means that if the margin percentage increases from 100% to 500%, the required margin will increase by 5 times regardless of the leverage the client has on the trading account.
