Big brokers share price hit seems mainly centred on the on the data that most lose playing the forex (rather than the decreasing of leverage) but this is not really news, minimal research would have disclosed this to any newbie. That is why, repeated over and over on the forum is stressed the need for tight risk management, low leverage and to just concentrate on survival for the first few years.

 

Not what anyone wants to hear. They prefer ‘with a bit of luck I can get rich quick’ scenario. But luck doesn’t come into it if you are going to be making hundreds of trades over a long period of time, probability is the play, not luck. Reading ‘Spread betting for Dummies’ over the weekend then steaming in with big leverage will probably put you in the 80% who lose. Those instagram and myfxbook posts showing massive percentage gains per trade must mean they are using massive leverage, they cannot withstand even a small string of losers, unless it’s a demo account, then they just reset.

 

Big broker share price should bounce, not a dead cat bounce because the big brokers will pick up business from the small firms who will be hit the hardest.

Absolutely Casey, if the media, or places like CNBC or Bloomberg try to say to the novice investor that somehow stocks and share are a safer "bet" just look at the chinese crash back in 2015 and its mining shares, i myself had diversified my portfolio, but still had some terrible under performers, but that is how it goes but i understood my product. With leverage derivatives you must understand the product and use very good risk management, therefore not placing such huge positions with a small account and if you where using a long only position of a particular stock, dont put all your eggs in one basket, not much different.

I am not a fan of regulation, but if this benefits clients and the industry together then i think the majority will be glad.

    • Since the beginning of 2024, memecoin and AI projects have taken the crypto space by storm. Many memecoins have seen incredible adoption, with their market caps surging exponentially over the past few months. Notable examples include WIF, PEPE, and BOME, among others. Traders have shifted their focus to memecoins, drawn by their remarkable profit potential, surpassing even that of traditional BTC and altcoins. While trading memecoins can be highly lucrative, it is crucial to acknowledge the associated risks and conduct thorough research (DYOR). Some memecoins, like CAF and HMTT, have seen significant declines, resulting in substantial losses for traders. Identifying the right memecoin and the optimal time to trade is essential. As a trader always on the lookout for promising tokens, I recently discovered a memecoin with substantial potential: $LAIKA. Unlike others driven purely by social media hype, $LAIKA offers real utility. Its features include a mobile game, Laikaverse, LAIKA wallet, and DeFi (NFT staking), all contributing to its unique value proposition. Since its listing on Bitget a few hours ago, $LAIKA's price trend has been bullish. Several upcoming events provide traders with opportunities to enhance their holdings. I believe $LAIKA has the potential to emulate the success of $****, $WIF, or $DOG, but it's imperative to conduct your own research and avoid fear of missing out (FOMO). Personally, I see $LAIKA as a promising investment and would love to hear the opinions of other memecoin enthusiasts on this token.
    • Iinteresting, I've been watching the memecoin space for a while, and DOGE's success is hard to replicate. But a fast-growing project with a team that has some clout, especially with the Dogecoin Wallet founder on board, piques my interest. Right now, I'm actually busy exploring the treasure trove event on Bitget. The reward pool sounds pretty enticing, and with everything going on in the market, some extra crypto wouldn't hurt haha. I'll have to check out $JUNGLE more closely after I finish up with this event. Launching on Bitget is a good sign, and if they can truly capture that "sincerity and bravery" spirit, it could be something special
