IMPORTANT: We recommend extra caution when trading during the festive season: reduced levels of liquidity are expected, which are likely to result in wider spreads. This may cause significant slippage when opening or closing your trades.

Bank transfers are also likely to be affected: withdrawals and deposits may be processed with significant delays. Please make the necessary preparations in advance.
