The decision to alter margin requirements ahead of major votes or events is hardly unusual, as FxPro joins a laundry list of other brokers that have thus far embarked on similar measures. The last major event of note that elicited such an industry-wide level of response was the aftermath of the Swiss National Bank (SNB)’s decision back in January 2015.
