  • The conditions of the Professional accounts (Plus / Classic) will be adjusted to standard account level at 21:00.

All measures apply until further notice. A change to normal conditions will be reassessed and will be made depending on the situation and market situation.

If market volatility increases, it is advisable to consider prudent risk management steps to protect your account
