Margin Call and Stop Out vary depending on account type and are subject to change. The Stop Out Level for the different account types is indicated on the Company’s website under Account Features, as amended from time to time. If the equity continues to drop, reaching the above mentioned equity-to-margin ratio, MT5 will automatically start closing open positions (starting with those with the highest losses) to prevent zeroing out of the account. The Client should note that a Stop-out may occur even if the Account is fully hedged. When an account is fully hedged, no margin requirement is needed, however the equity is affected by the floating PnL. If the spread widens, the floating PnL will increase. In this case, if floating PnL > equity, account will get stopped out.
14.12 It is the Company’s policy that the Client’s Equity in the Account will never fall below zero. In the event that a Position is closed at such price causing the Equity to fall below zero, the Company shall waive its right to receive the balance from the Client (Negative Balance Protection).
14.13 Due to fast moving markets, all type of Orders as disclosed in the General Trading Conditions section of the Agreement will be executed at prices worse or better due to Negative or Positive Slippage, although the Company will take all reasonable steps to provide Clients the best available price. It is important to note that Slippage does not affect the Negative Balance Protection and therefore the Client will never lose more than the amount invested (including any profit, if gained), even if a slippage occurs. In addition, transactions in some currencies (e.g. RUB) or other instruments (e.g. shares, indices) which are not traded on a 24 hours basis, may experience a Market Gap on a daily basis and are therefore more susceptible to slippage.
14.14 Market Gap
The Client understands that a Market Gap may occur due to abnormal market conditions and/or as a result of the price difference between the closing and opening price. In case of a Market Gap, the Company shall execute all pending limit or stop orders at the first available market price for the corresponding position size.
14.15 Stocks CFD – Expiration
CFDs whose Underlying Assets are Stocks are traded in conjunction with the times in which the underlying share is traded. Without derogating the provisions of the Agreement, Stock CFD Transactions may be terminated by the Company upon the occurrence of such events as: Corporate Actions, Suspension, Trading Termination, extremely low liquidity and Insolvency. In such event, the settlement price shall be the last traded price at or prior to the time of termination.

It should be noted that these adjustments are conclusive and binding upon the Client; the Client will be informed accordingly by the Company as soon as reasonably practicable.
- ii) The Client accepts that if they have any open positions that are affected by the corporate action, on the ex-dividend day the Company reserves the right to close such positions at the last price of the previous trading day and open the equivalent position at the first available price on the ex-dividend day; under the above mentioned circumstances, the Company shall inform the Client accordingly, through the internal e- mailing system, no later than the closing of the trading session prior to the ex-dividend day.
iii) The Company bears no responsibility for notifying the Client regarding announcement of corporate actions.
- iv) A client holding a long position on the ex-dividend date will receive the applicable dividend, in the form of a cash adjustment, deposited to the relevant account. A Client holding a short position on the ex-dividend date will be charged the applicable dividend, debited from the relevant trading’s account free equity. In the event a Client maintains a short position on the ex-dividend date and has insufficient free equity in their trading account to cover the reverse cash adjustment, the Company reserves the right to close the open position. Under such circumstances, the reverse cash adjustment shall be deduced from the trading account’s balance.
- v) The Client accepts that the Company retains no requirements to notify a Client in the event that a trading account maintains insufficient free equity to cover a reverse cash adjustment for a short position.
- vi) In the event of a stock split, the appropriate adjustment on the Client’s net position shall be reflected on the trading account in accordance with the announced stock split.
vii) In the event of a share being de-listed, the Client’s position will be closed at the last traded market price.
- i) If at any time trading on a relevant Financial Market or trading in a certain Underlying Asset is suspended, the Company shall suspend the trading in the CFD Transactions based on such Underlying Asset and calculate the value of the CFD with reference to the last traded price before the time of suspension, as reasonably determined by the Company. In the event that the aforesaid suspension continues for five Business Days, the Company may decide, at its sole and absolute discretion, a Closing Time and price of the relevant CFD. During the term of a CFD Transaction whose market is suspended, the Company shall have the right to terminate the CFD Transaction at its discretion, and to amend or vary the requirements.
14.15.3 Trading Termination
- i) If an Underlying Asset has ceased (or will cease) to be listed, traded or publicly quoted for any reason and is not immediately re-listed, re-traded or re-quoted on the relevant Financial Market or quotation system (including in the event of any insolvency of a company whose shares constitute an Underlying Asset), the Closing Time of the relevant CFD shall be a reasonable time prior to such time in which the Underlying Asset will cease to be listed, traded or publicly quoted and the Company shall close all the relevant Transactions at the Closing Time.
- i) If a company, whose shares form the CFD’s Underlying Asset goes into insolvency or is otherwise dissolved, the Company shall close any open Position in the CFD and cancel all Limit Orders relevant to such Underlying Asset. The closing date shall be the date of insolvency.
