Source: Interactive Brokers Warns Gold Margin Hike Imminent, CME Next? | ZeroHedge


ZeroHedge
The first shot was just fired in today's battle with daily record gold prices. IB always tends to be a few minutes ahead of the CME. And following last week's 22% margin hike in gold, we are confident the CME will do everything in its power to pull a "silver" on gold. Are we about to experience a barrage of margin hikes in gold? Stay tuned and find out.

As a result of the volatile trading environment at the present
time, please be advised that Exchange margins and House margins are
likely to increase over the next couple of days. For exchange-
specific increases, please visit the respective websites. IB will
also be increasing the gold derivatives margin. Please monitor any
affected holdings closely and manage your risk accordingly.

Performance Bonds | Margins Requirements for CME Group Products

Hopefully we don't see an adjustment to CL. When they adjusted Silver, they adjusted CL, although with crude prices at their current level, I don't see why they would.

Anyway, can someone please explain to me what the "volitility scan rate" is for the instrument and what it means (in practical terms, what, if any effect they have on trading).

As a result of the continued volatile trading environment, please be advised that exchange margins and/or house margins are likely to increase overnight and over the next couple of days, particularly in the metals. For exchange specific increases, please visit the respective websites. IB will also be increasing the gold derivatives margin. Please monitor any affected holdings closely and manage your risk accordingly.
