Hi @AndaIG, Please could the [LOUP] Innovator Deepwater Frontier Tech ETF be listed and made available for the ISA tax wrapper, pretty please? Many thanks, Sam
Look ahead to 31/5/23: China PMI; France GDP; Germany CPI Economic data is key on Wednesday. It starts in Japan with retail sales, followed by Chinese PMI. Jeremy Naylor | Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 30 May 2023 IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at the chances that the Chinese yuan will weaken further as it becomes more and more obvious that the recovery in China is further away than initially expected. Then in the eurozone we’re looking at the CAC 40 and DAX as growth and inflation data is released. The only corporate on the schedule is from stationers, WH Smith.
Is there any scenario where you can get margin called on FX options? I bought as much as I had cash for, so my margin is below my funds.
I assumed this margin cannot change, but then heard I of someone who got margin called on FX options, he claims IG increased the margin some time after he bought them, which wiped him out.
I question anything I read on the internet, but is there any scenario where the margin on FX options could increase?
For example can the value of FX options go negative, or can a change in spread increase the margin value after you've bought them.
