Now that we're all being treated like children who can't be trusted to make our own decisions. . . . .

. . . . . .does anyone know if there's any way get around the imminent ban on trading crypto assets?

I've been quite succesfully using the Crypto 10 index as I was reluctant to pile everything into a single cryptocurrency that may or may not see widespread adoption. Does anyone know if there's anyway for a UK resident now to trade these assets other than buying them directly? (I'm not eligible for "professional" status).

 


 

Oh and if anyone from the FCA ever reads this - reign in your egos and stop treating adults like children. All you ever do is make my life more difficult.

The Crypto 10 index shows a spread range between 30 to 40 points plus a margin factor of 50%!!

Are you not better trading another index? 

I hardly see the point of trading that crypto index when there are much cheaper options available. 

What makes that crypto index that interesting?

Possibly. I can't see the future. But I've had good results with that index recently, and I think it's a technology with no where to go but up over the long term.

 

I agree the margin being asked is eye-watering, but I'll take that over not being allowed to trade it at all.

I don't really understand the all out ban. Why not just regulate more. For example force people to start on demo. They have to prove profitability over a set period of time on that. If they do that they can open a live account but can only deposit a small amount e.g £5k if they make money over a period of time lift restrictions and let them do what they want. If they go to zero take them back to demo or stop them completely on that particular platform. A ban just seems like a lazy option as it costs to build a structure like this and manage it.

    • Hi all, Got a successful trade on my demo account.  Looking at NG to continue its upward trend to move back above the 50MA and 100MA and eventually retest 4000. Opened a position at 3825 with stop loss at 3740 and a target of 3965 (not ideal risk/reward ratio sadly). Position opened after moving above the 50MA. Went above the 100MA, fell back, then pumped back above the 100MA during the 7pm high volume spike, I closed the position at 3915 for £225 (£2.50/point).  Upward trend looks to continue setting higher highs and higher low on the hourly since Thursday.
