    The Turkish financial regulator has banned some banks from conducting foreign currency transactions involving the Lira with some major foreign financial institutions. Due to this, liquidity of the Lira has now significantly decreased. As a result, we will make the below FX instrument untradable:

    • TRYJPY

    This restriction will come into effect immediately on 8 May 2020. During this restriction period, clients will not be able to trade TRYJPY, and any orders for TRYJPY will not be executed.

    We will inform you when this restriction is lifted and keep you posted with any updates/changes.

    As the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases increases worldwide, the financial markets have become very unstable. There is increased risk of extreme volatility in the FX market.

    As a result, the spreads on all instruments will widen, especially safe haven currencies such as USDJPY. We expect this to continue until market volatility subsides. Please be extremely mindful of market gapping on Monday morning and ensure you have adequate margin balance if you choose to hold positions over the weekend.

    You are strongly advised to closely monitor your positions and margin balance in your account.

    We will keep you posted for any updates.
