CFDs are leveraged products. CFD trading may not be suitable for everyone and can result in losses that exceed your deposits, so please ensure that you fully understand the risks involved.

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.
