What is Limit Up / Limit Down? (Index CFDs)

1 min. readlast update: 01.23.2024

A Limit Up/Down price is the maximum allowable decline in the price (often by percentage) of a security in a single trading session or day. Please note that while our aftermarket CFD pricing is facilitated via the futures price, the main sessions are priced by the underlying Indices' primary exchange (i.e. cash market price).

As an example, CME products (equating with US30 and US500) have a maximum allowable movement of 5% when the cash market is closed. When the cahsmarket opens, these limits become 7% then 13% and 20% where the symbols close for that day.
