What happens if the stock I am trading suspends?

Whenever a stock suspends, our corporate actions and risk departments will review it internally and confirm whether it is likely to trade again. If it isn’t – or if the news surrounding the company is negative – we’ll notify anyone with an open position on the stock that its margin requirement is going to be amended to 100%. 

The margin requirement will remain at 100% until there is further news in the underlying market (e.g. relisting or delisting) which we will then reflect in due course.
