The amendments about the GTC, Order Execution Policy, Fees and Commission table, Specification Table – Equities, and Specification Table – Forex, Commodities, Indices, Cryptocurrencies, and Margin Table are scheduled to be implemented on December 11, 2018.
The broker advises its clients and traders to further ask about the changes as well as the use of the new platform through the company’s email and telephone.
