0% Interest For 24 Hours

However, If you have applied for any margin loans before 11:00 on June 27 (GMT+8), there will be no interest generated during the promotion, the announcement stipulated.
Also, If you apply for any margin loans after 11:00 on June 27 (GMT+8), there will be no interest generated during the promotion. At 11:00 on June 28 (GMT+8), all applied margin loans will generate the interest for the first hour.
