LMFX | Important:Turkish referendum

Posted 2017-04-13 14:55:42Expirations

Dear Client,

LMFX would like to inform you that due to the upcoming Turkish Constitutional Referendum, which will take place on 16th April 2017, as from the 13th April 2017 at 9:00 GMT, the USDTRY pair will be placed in close-only mode.

The above means that as of 13th April 2017 you will no longer be able to open new orders on the USDTRY pair. You will however be able to close all open and pending orders without restrictions.

Any pending order left open, if triggered during the close-only mode, will be cancelled instead.

This is a protective short term measure taken due to underlying market conditions and the surrounding market uncertainty which is likely to cause adverse trading conditions for our clients.

The Instrument will be placed back into standard trading conditions once the referendum results are released and regular market conditions are resumed.
