Summary of IG's annual report with some interesting news on a upcoming but as yet undisclosed new range of CFD products post ESMA.


For those poor plebeians, unable to meet the requirements needed to reclassify as a professional, there is hope yet. IG Group will enable them to contract with their other entities, outside of the European Union, which aren’t subject to those pesky ESMA rules.

If they don’t want to leave the regulatory confines of the Old Continent, clients will also be able to trade in a range of new CFDs. IG Group did not reveal exactly what these CFDs will be in, only that they are going to be compliant with ESMA’s new regulations.

There have been many discussions but you would probably not be too surprised  @TrendFollower  that many aren't interested in risk management and expect to burn out their first 2 or 3 accounts before hitting the jackpot, after all that's how the instagram jockeys did it, so they claim. 

It's interesting how little separates  SB and CFD and easy to see why esma just clumps them together as one and after all IG were the ones to launch many of these products which is why I am intrigued as to what IG have up their sleeve. Having had the time to pull apart the new regulations I'm wondering if they have come up with some original new products that might lessen the esma sting.

    • The rally on Wall Street yesterday provided Asian markets with a reason to bounce, as oversold stocks and excessively bearish sentiment finally gave way to some bargain hunting among investors. The Bank of England's decision to intervene in bond markets yesterday provided the foundation for at least a short-term bounce, but whether it turns into anything more sustained remains to be seen. Longer-term of course, rates continue to rise, and the economic outlook remains grim, suggesting that earnings will keep coming under pressure. Thus while another 'bear market bounce' may be in the offing, the overall outlook still suggests that risk assets will struggle. Today sees German CPI and weekly US jobless figures, along with speeches from Fed members Bullard and Mester.
