ESMA proposal discussion topic

Question

As many of you are aware ESMA have proposed introducing leverage limits of 30:1 to 5:1 on retail trading. The proposals would increase the margin required to open a CFD trade or spread bet on EUR/USD to 3.33%, the DAX to 5%, and equities to 20%. This is still only a proposal which hasn't been finalised and you can #ReplytoEMSA here.

ESMA has listened to traders on margin close-out rules and adapted its policy accordingly. A 50% close-out rule will now apply on an account basis, rather than on a position-by-position basis. We’d like to thank all traders who submitted views – your valuable input has resulted in a positive shift for the industry rather than a backwards step.

 

Is this now a rule? If a trader has 10k and losses are 4,500 ,margin is £1000, what will happen to open positions?

    • Would this be useful to anyone, Prevailing market sentiment graphs?  I have found a lot of good success using this method trading stocks. It makes use of the Hull Moving Average. Not just using the Hull Moving average however but I have found that it is surprisingly accurate.  Would this be useful to anyone? I will update these graphs most days if people find it interesting for both the FTSE100 and FTSE250 with general market sentiment. I have annotated the graphs so that if the prevailing sentiment is up/long it will show in green and if it's down/short then it will show as red.   I can produce other graphs for individual stocks if there is enough interest. Feel free to fork, update, message me for any questions etc.  Graphs
