Margin increase ahead of Italian referendum

30 November 2016

As you may be aware, Italy will hold a referendum on Sunday (4 December 2016) on whether or not to change the country’s constitution.

The country’s Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi, has promised to resign if the electorate rejects his proposals.

High volatility is expected when market opens next Sunday. In order to protect our customers from volatility spikes due to the Italian referendum, please be informed that our margin requirements are changing on Thursday 1 December 2016 at 21:00 GMT as described below. The new margin requirements will remain in force until further notice (presumably until 5 December 2016, depending on the market reaction following the referendum results).

In this connection, please note that the new margin requirements will affect both EXISTING and NEW positions. Please make sure you have enough available margin / equity in your account leading up to and during the voting/announcement of results.

1.00 % = 1:100 leverage

2.00 % = 1:50 leverage

5.00 % = 1:20 leverage, etc.

Move of DarwinIA allocations to new risk DARWINs

26 June 2020

Next Monday  29 June 2020 13:00 we will move DarwinIA allocations from the DARWINs of VaR 10% to those of VaR 6.5%.

Next Monday  29 June 2020 13:00 we will move DarwinIA allocations from the DARWINs of VaR 10% to those of VaR 6.5%.

For this move, it’s necessary to take into account the PnL of the allocation. That is, if a DARWIN of VaR 10% had an allocation of 20,000 and PnL of 1,000, what it will have after the migration to VaR 6.5% will be

(20000 + 1000) * 10/6.5

If it were a loss instead of a gain, it would be subtracted.

On July 1st the new DarwinIA prizes will be allocated to the 6.5% VaR DARWINs.
