We would like to inform you that on July 11, 2022, changes will be made in the settings of the hedged margin for all trading instruments on MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 platforms.
The hedged margin per locked position will be 50%. It means that there will be no margin charge for a locked (overlapped) position for the same instrument. For instance, there are two positions Buy 1 lot EURUSD and Sell 1 lot EURUSD, the contract size is 100,000 base currency, and the margin for the two positions will be charged as 1 lot.
For instruments where the opening price of a position (CFD) is included in the margin calculation, the average opening price (Buy open price + Sell open price) / 2 will be used when calculating the margin for locked (overlapped) positions.
