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?

...so opening a new position @Tim34? Answered your own question surely? The fact it does it automatically rather than manually shouldn’t mean anything...

Yes, I thought that it would be highly likely that this would be the case. I was hoping that rollover might be immune as they could be classed as an extension to the original trade, rather than a new one.

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?

    • The #meme hype surrounding #Solana may have slowed down with the emergence of the Ton network, but it seems that the enthusiasm for Solana is not fading away entirely. While new networks like Ton are gaining attention, Solana has previously generated significant interest and wealth for investors. However, there are concerns about scammers exploiting the Solana network with various honeypot and rugpull schemes, leading some traders to explore other chains like Base and Ton. Despite the rise of Ton blockchain, a new Solana meme project associated with Pepe the Frog has started to gain traction. One such project, LandWolf, has already amassed over 5,000 active Telegram members and 5,000 Twitter followers, indicating early interest and community engagement. The project aims to unite Pepe fans with the broader crypto community, offering a unique value proposition. LandWolf's ability to secure listings on top-tier exchanges like Bitget showcases the developer's influence and the project's potential. Some enthusiasts have already dubbed $WOLF as the biggest meme coin on Solana, highlighting the ongoing interest and excitement within the Solana ecosystem.
    • Meme coins are cryptocurrencies inspired by internet jokes, like Dogecoin. They're inherently risky due to their extreme price swings. While some meme coins remain purely for fun, others are trying to develop actual uses in gaming or finance. These high-risk, high-reward investments often attract "degenerates" (or "degens") who chase quick profits by jumping into unproven projects without much research.   The potential for massive returns with meme coins can't be ignored, however. Dogecoin's 9800% surge in 2021 exemplifies this. A $100 investment could have turned into a life-changing $9800. This experience highlights the potential regret of focusing solely on "safe" investments with lower potential returns.   Taking inspiration from this, some experienced investors are now allocating a small portion of their portfolio to latest meme coins.one of the latest is Miggles listed on Bitget. This strategy allows them to potentially benefit from future bull runs while limiting their overall risk.
