How will Brexit affect my Core Spreads Account? 

We understand that you might have some questions about the upcoming changes and want to find out what your options are. So, we've put together a video and compiled a list of questions below to help you make your choice:

As a result of the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union, Core Spreads is no longer accepting new business from European customers, and we have taken a business decision that our existing European customers accounts will be closing. 

(Customers from outside of the EEA are unaffected by this change) 


What will happen to my account?

On 2nd July at 10p.m. GMT+1, your account(s) will be set to “closing only”. You will no longer be able to open new positions or add new orders

On 9th July after 10p.m. GMT+1, your account at Core Spreads will be closed. All open positions in your account will be closed at the last available price on the 9th July and any remaining funds will be returned to you


On 2nd July at 10p.m. GMT your account will be set to closing only, and you will no longer be able to open new positions or add new orders.  

If you take no action then on 9th July at 10pm GMT+1, any positions in your account will be closed at the last available price, and your funds returned to you.

Here is some important information you MUST read... 

Trade Nation Ltd is regulated by the Securities Commission of the Bahamas and operates with a higher leverage than Core Spreads who are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority 

Increased leverage means you require less money to open and hold a position, but also means that both your risk and the chance of greater losses are increased. 

When you register to transfer, your funds and positions will be set to transfer with your account BUT any open positions will be closed and reopened without spread charge at the last available price on Friday 2nd July. 

You WILL realise any profit or loss on your positions.   


Here’s an example of that increased leverage based on Wall Street 30 Rolling Cash @ 30,000

Funds held at Barclays Bank plc in London

Sure! The details of the changes to leverage, and associated minimum margin requirement percentages, are shown below:
Market Core Spreads Leverage/Margin Rate Trade Nation Leverage/Margin Rate
Major Indices 20:1          5.0% 200:1          0.5%
Major FX pairs 30:1          3.33% 200:1          0.5%
Individual Shares 5:1          20.0% 20:1          5.0%
Gold 20:1          5.0% 200:1          0.5%



Here’s an example:

Core Spreads margins:

You buy $1 Wall Street 30 Rolling Cash @ 30,250.

Our minimum margin requirement percentage on the Wall Street 30 is 5%. This is the same as leverage of 20:1

The margin is calculated as follows: $1 x 30,250 x 5/100

So, you would need to hold $1,512.50 in your account to open this position.

Trade Nation margins:

You buy $1 Wall Street 30 Rolling Cash @ 30,250.

Due to ASIC’s rule change, our minimum margin requirement on the Wall street 30 is now 0.5%, equivalent of leverage of 20:1

The margin is calculated as follows: $1 x 30,250 x 0.5/100

You now need to hold $151.25 in your account to open this position. The new deposit requirement is 10 times larger than before.
