Title: Adjustment of Net Free Equity (NFE) margins for CFDs
Page Content:

​​In September 2016, Saxo introduced a new simplified equity rating model, which rates equities from 1 (low risk) to 5 (high risk) and sets the margin required for trading CFDs.

Now, the Net Free Equity (NFE) margin required for the calculation of interest is also being updated to follow the same principles. At the same time, a simplification across all Expiring CFDs (Commodity CFDs, Forex CFDs, Bond CFDs and Expiring Index CFDs) is being introduced.

The following NFE margin rates will apply for Single Stock CFDs and Expiring CFDs as of 1 February, 2017:
