As Oil has entered negative values lately and is at risk of being disabled, we have come up with a solution for all Oil Traders! USOILsp100 and UKOILsp100 are now available to trade! Our new Oil Instruments will have $100 added to the running price to decrease the likelihood of the price going into negative values.
As oil prices continue to fall, we do run the risk of them entering a negative value as seen briefly last month. The MT4 platform is unable to display a negative price, therefore, please be aware that should any oil contract price fall below $5.50 we will liquidate/close the respective positions on that contract and disable trading on the same contract.
Please note that as a result of the heightened volatility in the market, we are increasing the required margin on all oil contracts from 1.4% to 3%, effective from Friday, April 24th at 8:00 pm server time.
This margin requirement applies to both new and existing positions in USOIL, USOIL.sp, UKOIL and UKOIL.sp.
Please ensure you have sufficient capital to avoid any stop-out from the margin increase or the expected volatility.
