The table below displays any upcoming Earning reports and Dividends for the Stocks and Indices offered through the FxPro Trading Platforms. We recommend checking the calendar prior to trading such assets, and to monitor for any updates relevant to open positions you may have. You can find an example of the margin requirements during earnings below the table.
Keep an eye on the FxPro Earnings Calendar. Upon an upcoming company reports or other corporate actions (collectively, the ‘corporate event’), margin requirements for Shares and Spot Indices may be increased 5 business days prior to the corporate event and may remain in effect after the corporate event, at the FxPro’s sole discretion.
The percentages listed below under the margin requirements indicate the required margin based on the volume of shares you are trading.
For example, if Expedia Group Inc have earnings and our margin level requirements are as follows:
0-5k USD @ 12%; 5k-15k @ 20%; 15k-75k @ 50%; >75k @ 75%
This means that for a total shares value (volume) up to 5k USD, the margin will be calculated at 12% and so on…
If the current price per share is $160 and you are trading 150 shares, your exposure is 24,000 (150 shares * 160)
So, the first 5k will be with 12% margin = $600
The next 10k will be with 20% margin = $2000
The remaining 9k will be with 50% margin = $4500
This means your total used margin will be $7100
For shares denominated in other currencies, the value must be converted first into USD using the appropriate current FX exchange rate and then calculated accordingly as above.
Another thing is that we are showing tiers that actually don't apply, because the max exposure is capped , so maybe its better cap the dynamic leverage according to max exposure
Some Examples: 0-5k USD @ 12%; 5k-15k @ 20%; 15k-25k @ 50%; (if Max Exposure 25K)
0-3k USD @ 12%; 3k-10k @ 20%; 10k-15k @ 50%; (if Max Exposure 15K)
If you hold an open position on shares or Indices at the start of the business day (Server Time 00:00), which coincides with the ex-date of the respective underlying asset, a dividend is paid (or charged in the case of short positions). For Buy positions, the payment will be net of any withholding tax implications.
During the affected period, new margin requirements will apply for all new and existing trades. FxPro clients remain fully responsible for monitoring the required margin of their accounts as well as the free margin prior, during and after the affected period. As a result of the above, FxPro clients must understand and accept that this may result in their account(s) incurring a margin call and/or stop out. As you see, it's rather important to stay up to date with the Earnings Calendar.
