Snip20151125_77

In connection with our indices offering, please bear in mind that:

  1. Swaps are charged on market close every day and in triple size on Fridays.
  2. On Fridays, market will be closed 5 minutes earlier than the rest of the days (i.e., on Fridays market closes 5 minutes before the times displayed on the table above).
  3. For the time being, DARWINs canNOT be created for trading accounts that contain DAX trades. DARWIN Providers willing to trade DAX would need to open separate MT4 accounts and traders who trade DAX won’t be able to list DARWINs for their trading accounts yet. This is due to the DAX closing between 21:00 and 7:00 (London time). We’ll let you know as soon as accounts containing DAX trades can list DARWINs.

Please get in touch at info@darwinex.com if you’d like us to enable DAX on your MT4 terminal.

Also, please bear in mind that SPX500, WS30, NDX and J225 won’t be available until next week due to Thanksgiving festivities affecting market times this week.

Commodities

The table below contains the available commodities and their applicable conditions.

Snip20151125_78

  2. On Fridays, market will be closed 5 minutes earlier than the rest of the days (i.e., on Fridays market closes 5 minutes before the times displayed on the table above).
  3. During weekdays, there is a daily trading break in XAUUSD from 18:00 to 18:01 NY City time to avoid liquidity crunches (and spread spikes) on market open.

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.
