Updates in trading conditions

Due to recent geo-political news and extreme market volatility, trading conditions are beginning to become more volatile than usual. We do envision that trading liquidity will deteriorate for a number of trading instruments, especially for Oil and Indices as we get closer to the end of year. This will likely mean that spreads will widen significantly and available liquidity may be severely reduced. With this in mind, the ability to open or close large trading positions will be significantly affected. FTG’s Risk Management Department has performed an in depth analysis of the potential risks we are facing and starting Nov 25th 2018, FTG’s stop-out policy will be to close all positions once the stop out level is triggered. Stop out level for all FTG accounts will be at 100%.
If you have any questions about stop out policy please contact FTG Risk Management Department.
