Margin rates cut on all MOEX markets
Central Counterparty National Clearing Center (CCP NCC, part of Moscow Exchange Group) announces that margin rates across all MOEX markets have been cut to the levels of February 2020. The decision has been made in response to a recovery in market conditions and a reduction in volatility globally, as well as high liquidity and good turnover on the Russian market.
The reduced market requirements will give market participants more options and flexibility to manage their positions and liquidity.
CCP NCC has set the following margin rates: 17% (previously 20%) for liquid shares, 12% (15%) for RTS Index futures, 10% (13%) for MOEX Russia Index futures, 20% (30%) for Brent Oil futures, 30% (60%) for Light Sweet Crude Oil futures and 6% (8%) for US Dollar, Euro and Chinese yuan.
