Brexit Referendum – ‘Close Only’ Forex Pairs

June 17, 2016

Sydney – June 17, 2016

The June 23rd 2016, UK ‘Brexit referendum’ is fast approaching and Vantage FX continues to monitor and set appropriate risk management settings for the protection of our clients.

In addition to last week’s announcement of a two phase change in margin requirement and trade sizes we will be implementing an additional measure by setting the following pairs to close only starting from Monday open, June 20th 2016:

***As of 22/6/2016, GBP/USD, EUR/USD, FTSE100, DAX30 and GBP/CAD have been added to the above ‘close only’ list.***

As a further client protection measure, Vantage FX reserves the right to extend this requirement to other pairs at our discretion. While we intend to return to normal trading settings following the vote, we will monitor events closely and keep our clients updated.

As a reminder, client funds are held in segregated funds held by National Australia Bank (NAB) separate from Vantage FX company funds as required by ASIC regulations.
