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.

    • Hi @Mark12 If you are trading shares, you will have the option to place a limit order to sell your existing position. When the market opens, please check if your order level is close to where the market is trading. All the best, OfentseIG
    • We have to wait until Friday to find out if the UK economy skirted a recession.   Richard Snow, foreign exchange analyst at Daily FX, tells IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor that after the third quarter contraction of 0.3%, there is a risk around the incoming data for the fourth quarter. Here he discusses GBP/USD as a trade to go short. But what if GDP comes in slightly higher? Richard says that is likely to be largely academic and that he believes the short trade will prevail.

    • Breaking News - US NFPs Surge to 517k vs 185k Expectations, Unemployment Rate Falls to 3.4% Feb 3, 2023 | DailyFX Nick Cawley, Senior Strategist Source: Bloomberg   US DOLLAR (DXY) PRICE AND CHART ANALYSIS US NFPs smash expectations in January. US dollar picks up a bid. Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 517k in January, and the unemployment rate fell to 3.4% according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Hourly earnings also beat expectations. Last month’s NFP figure was also revised higher from 223k to 260k. ‘ Job growth was widespread in January, led by gains in leisure and hospitality, professional and business services, and health care. Employment also increased in government, partially reflecting the return of workers from a strike.’     The Federal Reserve hiked interest rates by 25 basis points at this Wednesday's FOMC meeting, a move fully expected, and priced in by the market. Fed chair Powell, while continuing to stress that further rises are data dependent, added a new word to his FOMC vocabulary, disinflation, sending the US dollar lower and risk markets sharply higher. Powell said that it is a ‘good thing that disinflation so far has not come at expense of labor market’, adding that ‘this disinflationary period is in early stages’. While chair Powell will still keep tightening monetary policy to break the back of inflation, financial markets are now pricing in just one more 25bp rate hike at the March meeting before a pause in Q2 and Q3, while rate cuts are now seen in Q4. FOMC Hikes Rates 25 bps as Expected, Leaves Open Further Hike Expectations The US dollar (DXY) picked up a bid post-release rising around 60 cents to 101.90 US DOLLAR (DXY) DAILY PRICE CHART – FEBRUARY 3, 2023     What is your view on the US Dollar – bullish or bearish?
