The situation in Ukraine – geopolitical development, sanctions, and markets
Due to the war in Ukraine, traders can experience increased uncertainty in the markets, accompanied by increased volatility on many assets, along with the possibility of price spikes, whipsaws, flash crashes, spread widening and liquidity supply issues. Traders are advised to pay extra caution while trading during these times. Risk management and capital preservation should be the key focus of every trader, just as being aware and adaptive to the market conditions that might be unpredictable or risky.
Unfortunately, at this time, we are not allowed to process payments to regions of Donetsk, Luhansk, and Crimea in Ukraine and our clients from there, as per the latest sanctions imposed in connection with the war in Ukraine. There are also sanctions targeting some Russian banks and high-profile individuals. We are not allowed to process any payouts to clients and banks on the sanction list. Payouts to our clients from/in the subject locations, or being subject to the sanctions list, will be possible once the imposed sanctions are lifted. Crypto payouts are included in the restrictions.
Trading on RUB pairs (EUR/RUB and USD/RUB) is suspended from Thursday, 24 February 2022, 6:00 pm platform time (GMT+2 / CET +1) until further notice due to exposure risks and low liquidity at the present moment. The symbols will be set to Close-Only mode with immediate effect in order to allow traders to exit their current position. It will not be possible to open new positions.
