    Please note that the margin is increased regardless of the current level of the leverage of your trading account.

    Here are examples of calculating margin for NDD accounts:

    • For 0.01 lot of GBPUSD pair with 1:200 leverage the margin is not a standard 5 GBP, it is equal to 10 GBP.
    • So with 1:50 leverage, the margin is not 20 GBP, but 40 GBP.
    • For 0.01 lot of USDCHF pair with a 1:200 leverage the margin is not a standard 5 USD, it is equal to 10 USD. Thus, with a 1:100 leverage, the margin is not 10 USD, but 20 USD.

    Margin requirements for "lock" positions (hedged positions):

    Opening locked positions is available on PRO.MT4 and NDD.MT4 accounts for all trading instruments. For example, if you open long position in EURUSD currency pair, you can lock it by opening the opposite short position with the same instrument. Opening locked positions is also available on NDD.MT5 and DIRECT.MT5 accounts for all instruments with the Hedge (Lock) function enabled in your Personal account.

    • PRO.MT4 and NDD.MT4, as well as NDD.MT5, DIRECT.MT5 with Hedge (Lock) function enabled: lock margin = [Minimum margin ] / 4.
    • Example: on the account with the leverage set on 1:100 level Buy 0,1 EURUSD and Sell 0,1 EURUSD positions are opened the total margin for this positions can be calculated as 100 EUR / 4 + 100 EUR / 4 = 50 EUR.
    • GLOBAL.MT5: lock positions are not available.
  • Dividends:

    Dividends are not applicable to instruments of US stocks and RU stocks groups on PRO.MT4 and DIRECT.MT5 trading accounts. It means that there will be no dividends deposited to account for open long positions and no dividends withdrawn from account for short positions.

These short positions will be forcefully closed at the last available market price prior to Dividend Ex Date. Clients are notified about the Dividend Ex Date by a mailbox notice in trading platform MetaTrader4/MetaTrader5.

    Dividends are applicable for RU stocks and RU Stocks Blue chips instruments on GLOBAL.MT5 trading accounts. They can be positive and negative depending on the type of deal - buy or sell. Dividends are deposited to account or withdrawn from it by a special technical transaction, the date of a calculation its result depends on the Dividend Ex Date and the Delivery Date. The amount of dividends is calculated in rubles and then converted into account currency. Considering the fact that trading with CFDs doesn’t make you an actual shareholder , all the transactions with shares are made by BCS Forex on its consolidated brokerage account, therefore, the amount of dividends (that will be deposited to the account) is reduced on 15% due to taxes. The amount of dividends is fixed on the account balance within a month. The approximate amount of dividends is calculated based on the financial statements of the issuer or management statements.
