Please note that the Italian General Election is coming up this Sunday (4 March 2018).

There is uncertainty surrounding a new, untested electoral system and the possibility that a hung parliament could lead to lengthy coalition talks or even more elections. The outcome of the election may result in market gapping in EUR related products when markets open on Sunday at 22:00 (UK time).

Please make sure you are comfortable with the open position exposure on your Darwinex account and that you have sufficient margin cover going into the weekend prior to market close at 22:00 (UK time) on Friday (2 March 2018).

Kindly note that we reserve the right to change our margin requirements as we move closer to the election & depending on its outcome.
