Sydney – November 1, 2016

In anticipation of significantly increased volatility in global financial markets due to the upcoming US election, Vantage FX has conducted a review of our risk management policies with the intention of providing a more secure trading environment for our clients.

As a result of this review, we have decided to implement the following adjustment to trading conditions as a temporary measure leading into and over the US election:
