Due to upcoming poll on Great Britain exiting the EU, XTB decided to increase minimum margin requirements on certain CFD instruments. XTB expects increased volatility in the coming days due to the uncertainty of the final outcome of the vote. The increase is aimed at protecting our clients from sudden market moves and gap openings during the next couple of weeks. Moreover, we should expect periods of wider spreads and lower liquidity as well.
From the 23rd June 2016 the following changes will apply.
