Trading updates – 10 Feb 2022 edition
We are glad to announce that after the successful testing period, the new symbol US2000.cash (US small-cap index CFD) will be available for trading on all our accounts, namely FTMO Challenges, Verifications, and FTMO Accounts, starting from Monday, 07 February 2022.
Please note that all assets with Swiss franc (CHF) will have the margin requirement amended as our Liquidity Providers anticipate risk in markets associated with a possible rate intervention by the Swiss National Bank (SNB). The leverage on CHF assets will be reduced to 1:33 for normal account types and 1:10 for Swing account types. This will affect new and existing positions starting on Monday, 23 August 2021, at 11:00 CEST (09:00 GMT). If you have currently open positions on CHF, please make sure to manage them accordingly. We advise caution as there is a likelihood of possibly increased volatility in the markets. This measure is in place until further notice and is being monitored by our risk team.
