From the session opening Monday, June 20 to 12.00 (EET) on Monday, June 27 - specific changes will include:

a. 5 times increase in the margin requirements for the currency pairs with GBP and [FTSE100] index CFD on Admiral.Markets and Admiral.Classic accounts

b. 2 times increase of above on Admiral.Prime account

c. Close Only mode enabled for the less liquid cross rates plus exotic currency pairs with GBP and EUR.

Plus for the duration of June 23, 2016 (00:00 - 24:00 EET) and until 12:00 (EET) of June 24, the following changes will take place:

a. 2.5 times increase in the margin requirements on Admiral.Markets and Admiral.Classic accounts for the currency pairs with EUR
