Volatility expected due to French presidential elections

19 April 2017

Please note that high volatility is expected on EUR pairs, XAUUSD and European indices on market open next Sunday (23 April 2017) due to the French presidential election. Also, liquidity providers are expected to significantly limit their liquidity, which can give rise to abnormal widening of spreads, potential increased amounts of slippage on executed orders and, eventually, gaps in […]

Please note that high volatility is expected on EUR pairs, XAUUSD and European indices on market open next Sunday (23 April 2017) due to the French presidential election. Also, liquidity providers are expected to significantly limit their liquidity, which can give rise to abnormal widening of spreads, potential increased amounts of slippage on executed orders and, eventually, gaps in the charts due to the low liquidity available.If you plan to keep open trades over the weekend, please make sure you post margin / equity in your account ahead as volatility is expected to increase heading into the election. Please note that we reserve the right to change our margin requirements as we move closer to the election / depending on the outcome.

Should we decide to introduce any changes to our trading conditions, we’ll endeavour to contact you via email, MT4 or by changes made to our blog / website ASAP.

D-Leverage & Risk Manager

Further, starting on Friday at 18 UK time, our Risk Manager will be more restrictive when replicating DARWINS’ trades to protect investors from increased volatility ahead of the weekend and on market open.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact us at info@darwinex.com for support.

New XAUUSD trading hours (effective from 26 March 2017)

23 March 2017

As you may recall, back in August 2016 we introduced a daily 1 minute trading halt to avoid the wide spreads and large candles owed to the low liquidity available at market’s open. Since then our spreads around rollover time have improved significantly and complaints due to SL getting triggered around market open are very rare.

As you may recall, back in August 2016 we introduced a daily 1 minute trading halt to avoid the wide spreads and large candles owed to the low liquidity available at market’s open.

Since then our spreads around rollover time have improved significantly and complaints due to SL getting triggered around market open are very rare. Unfortunately, XAUUSD liquidity around rollover time still doesn’t meet the high quality standards that our traders deserve, so we’re extending XAUUSD’s trading halt one minute with effect from Sunday 26 March 2017.

The new XAUUSD trading hours will remain in force until further notice. We will monitor the liquidity available at all times and we will remove the daily trading breaks only when we are sure that the liquidity available meets our clients’ needs.

New XAUUSD Trading Hours (effective from 26 March 2017)*
Instrument Open (Sunday)* Trading Hours (Weekdays)* Close (Friday)*
XAUUSD 23:01:00 23:01:00 – 21:59:00 21:55:00

*Times are in UK time. 

As always, please do not hesitate to contact us at info@darwinex.com should you have questions about the new trading hours.
