Changes in stock margin

Due to expected corporate events in several public companies the minimum margin requirements are raised temporarily from 5% to 20% (i.e. maximum forex leverage falls from 1:20 to 1:5) for CFD on these stocks.

In the table below in "Margin change date" and "End date of the event" columns the period of the increased margin is stated. The event may happen before the end date of the event, so the margin may be returned in advance to the level of 5%.
