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?
