Margin requirements and Rating groups for stock and ETF CFDs

All  tradable CFDs are categorized in 5 different margin groups. Which margin group a CFD falls into depends on the several factors of the underlying instrument: Market Capitalisation (Large, Mid or Small), Volatility (Low, Moderate, High or Extreme), Credit Rating (Excellent, Good, Regular or Poor), Gap tendency (Negligible, Marginal, Critical or Catastrophic) and  Liquidity (High, Medium or Low).
