We are pleased to inform you that we will continue to provide trading and support services throughout the holiday season. With both Christmas and New Year’s Day falling on a Sunday this year, there will be slight changes in the trading schedule.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your business over the last year. Tickmill is now an FCA UK regulated broker, which is a major accomplishment on its own. Check out our 2016 milestones and see how we have grown by leaps and bounds to become one of the leading brokers in the industry.

On the 2nd of January 2017, holidays will be observed in Asia and America. The European markets will be open, but there will be a very limited number of Liquidity Providers pricing. The pricing is expected to be wide and the liquidity poor, while pricing updates will be very infrequent. It is for these reasons that we believe it is in the best interest of our clients not to receive FX and metals pricing on the 2nd of January 2017.

Please Consider the Risks

During the holiday season, there may be changes in market conditions as to volatility and liquidity. Spreads are often much wider. Hence, please review your positions and margin requirements to ensure that you have sufficient free equity to cover a potential rise in margin requirements and adverse price movements. Kindly be advised that stop loss orders may not provide protection against adverse price movements in all circumstances. If you are uncertain, consider reducing or closing hedged positions and reassess the situation. In certain circumstances, loses may exceed the initial deposit.

Account Funding and Withdrawals

Deposits received on the 26th and 27th of December 2016, as well as on the 2nd of January 2017, will be processed on the same day.

Withdrawal requests received on the above dates will also be processed on the same day.
