This weekend brings the ‘play-off’ in the French presidential elections between Macron and LePen.


With this in mind, Corespreads will be making the margin changes on both MT4 and Core Trader2 ahead of the 7th May 2017 vote.

Please be aware that as well as these margin changes the Guaranteed Stop Loss order facility for all relevant markets will be removed at 14:00 on Friday 5th May 2017 BST.


They expect to remove these margin increments, returning to normal rates, and restoring the Guaranteed Stop Loss facility at 07:00 Monday 8th May 2017 BST.


If you have open positions, please be aware of the increased margin requirements. They recommend you monitor positions carefully and maintain a sufficient account surplus well above the minimum margin requirement in advance of the changes.
