RoboForex limits leverage for Polish customers due to new regulations

Cypriot Forex broker RoboForex has announced it will limit maximum leverage for its clients from Poland in tune with new margin requirements imposed by Poland’s regulator KNF.

You may recall that the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) addressed Cyprus investment firms in June this year to warn them of the regulatory changes. Under the amended rules, retail investors from Poland are askedto maintain a margin of at least 1% of the value of the position – this translates into a maximum leverage of 1:100.

RoboForex has informed its Polish clients that their maximum leverage will be set at 1:100 from July 24, 2015. The brokerage asks the affected customers to adjust their trading in tune with the new requirements.

The rest of the broker’s customers can still make use of leverage of up to 1:200.
