1 The target spread is the minimum spread DF Markets aspires to quote. Nevertheless, during times of low liquidity and/or high volatility, the company might not be able to maintain the same spread levels it usually quotes. Such market conditions cannot be predicted and can occur at any time of day, and may lead to widening of the spreads for a certain period of time. Please be advised that wider spreads can have a negative effect on your account equity that might lead to insufficiency of funds and closing of your positions.

2 In accordance with Art. 14.16 from the Terms & Conditions, DF Markets is entitled to change the required margin for any certain financial instrument, trade, or client's account. In case of such a change, DF Markets will notify you by sending you an email.

The Margin requirements for our Spread Betting Products are based on a tiered structure depending on the aggregate size of a position in a given instrument. The majority of positions will be based on our standard margin rates, however larger positions may require greater margin. Our tiered margin structure per Spread Betting product is shown in the table above.
