LCG is inviting traders to become an Elective Professional Client.

  • Many traders are currently Retail Clients, however upcoming regulatory changes may result in restrictions for retail clients which will include increases to your margin rates.
  • If you meet the requirements of the FCA, LCG will be able to class you as an Elective Professional Client.
  • The benefit of being an Elective Professional Client with LCG will mean keeping your existing margin rates.

The recent European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) proposals may significantly affect your trading – and result in INCREASED margin rates.

The ESMA proposed margins are as follows:

  • 30:1 leverage on major currency pairs = 3.33% margin
  • 20:1 leverage on major indices = 5% margin
  • 10:1 leverage on commodities = 10% margin
  • 5:1 leverage on equities = 20% margin

LCG’s typical margins are as follows:

  • 200:1 leverage on major currency pairs = 0.5% margin
  • 200:1 leverage on major indices = 0.5% margin
  • 50:1 leverage on commodities = 2% margin
  • 20:1 leverage on equities = 5% margin

The following examples show how these changes will affect you:

Market Quantity Current margin required Margin required under ESMA Proposals
EUR/GBP Spread Bet £10/point CFD (1 standard lot) £445 £2,904
UK 100 Spread Bet £10/point CFD (1 standard lot) £363 £3,625
Brent Crude Oil Spread Bet $10/point CFD (1 standard lot) $670 $6,700
Apple Spread Bet $1/point CFD (100 shares) $810 $3,240
