Changes to Spot Gold margin from 2% to 20% - Singapore only

Recommended Posts

Anyone affected from the spot gold margin changes? Especially for existing openings required to close or reduce due to 10 times higher margin requirement.

Just to confirm this is down to the Singaporean regulators for Singapore based accounts only. They have recently reclassified gold from an FX pair against the dollar, to a commodity.  any questions please ask.

Dear James,

Thank you so much for explanation. No wonder I heard other country based account not affected at all. Too bad for me as i have negative running positions which plan to hold longer have to close them or reduce 1:10 ratio by end of this month. No holding power anymore.

Best Regards,
Nay

Unfortunately we only know that this is a regulatory change, and don't have specifics on their exact reasoning. We can only adhere to the outcome.
