Altrade Securities Limited is a Stock Brokers Firm. To our valued Clients, Altrade Securities Limited has updated its algorithmic margining model applicable to Contracts for Difference. This initiative is to ensure that Altrade Securities Limited is able to, on an ongoing basis, fulfil its regulatory obligations. Core to this responsibility is to effectively monitor and control systemic risk to itself, its clients and the market.
The new algorithm places particular emphasis on the volatility and liquidity of listed shares, factors very often ignored in determining a margin requirement on a geared holding. Although the issue of contracts for difference offers clients the opportunity to gain extra exposure in a share, the margin requirement should always be a function of the risks associated with that holding. Relying on a fixed percentage of the value of a holding often ignores the abovementioned risks. This could have devastating consequences during times of market turmoil.
