Warning about fraudulent activities

 

 

Dear clients,


We are contacting you to make you aware about an increasing amount of fraudulent activity where unidentified individuals are pretending to represent FXOpen and are contacting clients asking for payment of commissions and service fees. FXOpen does not have any hidden costs or charge additional commission or fees as clients pay only the commission stated on the broker's official website.

Please note that we only use @fxopen.com and @fxopenasia.com mail domains for communication with our clients. If you receive an email from FXOpen but from another domain it is most likely to be fraudulent. Also, we draw your attention to the fact that the authentic form of registration with FXOpen is only available on our main official website https://www.fxopen.com/(https://my.fxopen.com/en/Registration) and the domains on other languages available from the official website. We advise you to keep your login details safe and not to disclose them to third parties.

If you have any doubts about the authenticity of the registration form or about the official representative of FXOpen that has contacted you, please immediately notify FXOpen customer support at support@fxopen.com.

FXOpen will raise margin for GBP pairs on December 10th
 
 
Dear Traders,
 
We would like to remind you that the UK parliament will vote on the EU Withdrawal Bill on 11th December 2018. There is a high degree of uncertainty as to the outcome of the vote and all GBP currency crosses are likely to experience significant volatility with increased risk of market gaps.
 
Due to this FXOpen is going to increase margin requirements up to 5 times their normal values for all GBP pairs. Changes will take effect starting with the market opening on December 10th, 2018 without further notice.
 
We are taking this measure to reduce your risk due to the potential high volatility, rapid price movements or market gaps that may occur in case of further political escalation. Please consider this information in your trading and ensure you have sufficient funds on your account to maintain your positions.
