FX Margin Update

January 15, 2016

The margin requirement (MMR) for a specific currency pair is calculated as a percentage of the notional value of
such pair. As the exchange rates for any specific currency pair fluctuate up or down, the margin requirement for
that pair must be adjusted. For example, if the Euro strengthens against the US dollar, more margin will be
required to hold a EUR/USD position in a US dollar denominated account.
Margin requirements are udpated each month on the last Friday to account for such price fluctuations. FXCM
does not anticipate more than one update a month, however extreme market movements or event risk may
necessitate unscheduled intra-month updates. Up-to-date margin requirements are displayed in the Simplified
Dealing Rates window of the Trading Station. Scheduled updates are on the following dates:
18 December, 2015
29 January, 2016
26 February, 2016
25 March, 2016

High Risk Investment Warning: Trading foreign exchange and/or contracts for differences on margin carries a
high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss in
excess of your deposited funds and therefore, you should not speculate with capital that you cannot afford to
lose. Before deciding to trade the products offered by FXCM you should carefully consider your objectives,
financial situation, needs and level of experience. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading on
margin. FXCM provides general advice that does not take into account your objectives, financial situation or
needs. The content of this Website must not be construed as personal advice. FXCM recommends you seek
advice from a separate financial advisor.
