I'm pretty sure that it is purely on new positions, which makes sense. They can't force people to add a whole load new margin onto existing positions, especially if they're in a loss, because that could force a closure of position.  I don't have a source... but think there was an email about it a while ago.

How about futures positions that roll-over?

Say I want to hold a Forex position for a year. Currently I might hold futures trades, which will last a few months, then at expiry the software automatically closes them and opens a new futures position to extend the trade. If the software does this after 1st August will the new positions have the new margins, or the old ones?

I saw this on FF, is this something that can differ from broker to broker? 

"The abovementioned restrictions will apply to all positions of the AAAFx Retail Clients, existing and new, as of 29 July 2018."

Maybe some brokers/providers cant handle different settings for both old and new positions at the same time so they choose to treat old and new the same?

    • Why is this stock unavailable to open for non-Pro clients? Surely a fund is less risky than an individual stock.
    • Hi @Kgrp74 Thank you for reaching out.  HMRC rules don't allow you to hold foreign currency in an ISA, but you can still buy international shares. The gains on currency conversions are only seen and credited in the account once you sell the shares if the currency rate is favorable to you. We also have to consider the 0.5% spread added to the exchange rate and commission charges which would normally offset your profits.  Thanks, OfentseIG
