After ESMA rules come into effect will tiers change?


Guest mav

Question

1) Will tiers on indicies still exist.. eg, Dax 30 tier1, 0-100, tier2, 100-1000 and so on... and if so, will non guaranteed stops still reduce margin requirements?

Please note these changes only affect retail clients of EU firms (that are subject to ESMA regulation), and do not apply to professional clients.
 

Hi @mav Tiers are not changing right now but could change at any point in the future when we review product rates in the normal way. 

If you trade using guaranteed stops, position closure will now be triggered under slightly different terms from 1pm on Monday 30 July. When we calculate account equity today, we do not currently include running losses on positions with guaranteed stops. Under the new ESMA requirements, such positions will need to include running losses as part of the deposit ratio calculation. This means that your positions will be closed out when your cash, including all profit and loss, reaches 50% of your margin requirement.

    • Look Ahead to 07/02/23: RBA; GB Retail Sales; BP, BNPP earnings Australia’s central bank is likely to deliver a fourth consecutive quarter-point interest rate hike, after further tightening by the Fed, the ECB and the BoE. Brace for UK retail, earnings from BP (BP) and BNP Paribas (BNPP). Also, look out for US trade balance figures and Halifax house price data ahead of key UK growth data out later in the week.    Angeline Ong | Presenter, Analyst and Content Editor, London | Publication date: Monday 06 February 2023        
    • Hi, I am practicing certain strategies in demo account. I have created few screeners but when i tried to buy or short sell different stocks shortlisted based on screener conditions, i am getting different kinds of errors. Some stocks you can buy but can't short-sell and so on. I searched in the forums and i understand different restrictions such as market cap should be so and so. Are these rules defined somewhere?  for e.g. one forum reply says market cap should be above 10 billion otherwise you will get second message in below list. However even i try to short sell a stock that has £30 billion market cap, i get the same error.  1. IG is not accepting opening trades on this market, you may only place an order to close. 2. Market you have requested is not longer available online Any suggestions on the above will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
