New EU Regulations Proposed


Recommended Posts

  • 1 month later...

I have just been thinking about these new margin rules that ESMA are proposing,


Lets say they are put into place and we have to abide by them..


Well would it be possible that somebody could set up a loan company
where the money you borrow can only be used for collateral purposes,


Lets say IG themselves lend me £10,000


( and for which I would pay a small fee for the loan of that money )

 

That money goes into my account, but I cannot use that money for anything other than being used for collateral against spread betting or CFDs,


I would then have enough money to be able to carry on trading and cover the high leverage margins,


And IG would know their £10,000 was perfectly safe because I would not be able to spend it any where else,


And also IG ( or another company who loans the money ) would make a small amount from me for the loan of the money,


This is probably something that would never be able to get off the ground but it was just a thought...

Nice suggestions both previous posts, hopefully IG will lend us all £10,000 but I suspect they will know exactly where it will go 90% of the time.  being an old hand is closer to the mark but the reality is that with a small account an increase of 10 times margin you will no longer be able to play at £10 per point and will be restricted to £1 per point so bang goes the get rich quick dream, not automatically a bad thing?

    • BRITISH POUND TALKING POINTS: GBP/USD was in a difficult spot earlier in September and the problem has continued to devolve. It’s a negative feedback type situation around the UK and the British Pound with a collapsing currency leading to surging bond yields which led to a BoE intervention effort that’s led to more currency collapse. It’s a painful feedback loop that hasn’t yet stopped. Is there hope on the horizon? And is this a problem that will be relegated to the UK, as it has similar hues to problems being seen in Europe and the United States. The current backdrop is messy as bonds and FX are screaming panic and meanwhile, US equities look relatively calm. I discussed this at-length in yesterday’s webinar. The British Pound collapsed last week, or so we thought, only to open our platforms this week to see what a collapse in a major currency actually looked like. GBP/USD has set a fresh all-time-low and perhaps more disturbingly, in the days since, price hasn’t really rebounded much. Sellers are still hitting the pair and now there’s other dislocations that are taking place.   The UK is faced with a similar problem as Europe and the US with extreme inflation. All three Central Banks were rather calm as inflation built through much of last year but this year, as inflation continued to run-higher even after initial tightening efforts, worry started to show given that central bank efforts were not only unsuccessful but also appearing to bring on even more problems.
