Question

Hi Forum,

I was just wanting to know how the margin requirements work with "events"** (**eg NFP,  Central bank Rate announcements, FOMC, etc...)

Not sure if it reflects in the demo trading platform, but my understanding is that the margin requirement increases around these events(certainly in ones live account). 

  1. How long before the "events"** do these increased margin requirements kick in and how long after the event**? 
  2. What would happen in the instance where one has an open position(with a guaranteed stop loss in place), and one does not have sufficient margin in the account? {I also am assuming that the account is a "limited risk account"}.
  3. How much is the increase in margin requirement?

Hi, the margin requirement shouldn't change for retail clients and only very rarely for professional clients, you may be meaning the spread in which case see the reply in the thread linked below.

The demo platform should relay the same change in spread as the live platform.

    • In the previous year, #bullrun2024 had been a trending hashtag as most crypto enthusiasts continually drooled over the prospects of witnessing another bull cycle. 2024 is finally here and so far so good has produced only fireworks. BTC has soared to 60k+, the market is green, and there’s a general sense that the bulls are returning. If there’s one thing that pays most in such bullish market, it is the flair to spot early gems and position oneself before a breakout. In that regard, Bitget has been my plug for a few years running. The early listing of $ORDI last year for instance before Binance listing 7 months after, and a surge ultimately is well documented. This year alone, Bitget has continued its wealth creation for users nicely, coins like $PORTAL, $GPT, $GTAI and so on have gone on to print for investors as depicted in the picture below. Web3 rewards not just active participation, but strategic positioning. There’s no gainsaying that the key to securing insane profits in this market is by positioning early and strategically too. Bitget’s eagle-eye for spotting early gem is a flex. Numbers don’t lie.  
    • Portal itself is awesome. Those who haven't got any airdrop, I think it's best time to accumulate for them.. tho, I'm gonna DCA....
    • Nope the hype is worth it. The project is dope itself as well as the team. Already deposited my bag at Bitget... Let's hope for the best 🤞
