Leverage limits on the opening of a position by a Retail client are changing and vary according to the volatility of the underlying:
|For major currency pairs||1:30|
|For non-major currency pairs, gold and major indices||1:20|
|For commodities other than gold and non-major equity indices||1:10|
|For individual equities and other reference values||1:5|
If your current leverage is 1:200 and you open a position 0.1 standard lots on EURUSD, assuming a current market price of 1.1594, your margin requirement is 57.97 USD.
Once the new measures come in to force, your leverage will be 1:30 and the margin requirement for the very same position would be 386.46 USD.
