Important Oil Market Update

Dear Traders,

Due to the unprecedented global situation and increased market volatility we need to inform you of some important changes to our Oil markets (US Crude XTIUSD and UK Brent XBRUSD).

Due to the possibility of oil falling to negative prices again, many platforms are unable to show these negative prices.

With immediate effect and until further notice, should the price of XTIUSD or XBRUSD fall to $5.50, that market will be suspended and all open positions in that market will be automatically closed at the best possible prices in the market.

Please take this information into account when making trading decisions and we will inform you of any changes to this situation.
