FCA looking to ban crypto derivatives

Recommended Posts

Looks like the good ol FCA is looking to ban leverage derivatives like those we trade. Sigh. 

Consultation paper seems to be in the works. 

Like what’s the point you useless bunch of toss pots? Talk about a reg firm who are looking to expand their reach over and over again. Weird that the company who’s prime goal and purpose is to regulate and who wouldn’t be about without the need to funnel more under their umbrella...are the ones who decide what goes under their umbrella. It’s like “business is slow and the higher ups need KPIs - let’s find something that doesn’t require regs and reg it”.

Also as a side note - what’s the point? We already have BTC futures, we have a number of ETF’s, we seem to be getting more, other crypto’s will follow... they can’t just regulate those too. Retards. 

If anything this will just once again push people offshore, switch to other leverage derivatives etc... mindless

@PandaFace, these stories always worry me. I read this morning that India are thinking of banning Bitcoin. I have included the article below:


Both the UK and India story are worrying but how accurate are they? How credible are the sources? There have been many instances when reports have not been entirely factual. Until the Indian Government and the UK Government confirm what the stories state and on top, these things actually happen then it could have an impact not only on Bitcoin prices but Cryptocurrency prices.

From my understanding the UK is a smaller market than the US, Japan and China for cryptos. India was a big participant in Bitcoin but India's position of uncertainty and conducting research at the moment is priced into the current price, it seems!

The one thing for sure is that Bitcoin and Cryptos move on both positive and negative news at the moment. Interesting and very uncertain times.

      Another trade-war headline downs sentiment: There’s some news floating through the wires that sentiment has taken a hit overnight courtesy of some unfavourable trade-war headlines. It’s been reported that Chinese officials aren’t co-operating with their US counterparts, as it applies to certain sensitive elements of trade-negotiations. The S&P500, which had been developing some intraday momentum prior to the release, has retraced throughout trade, consequent to the news. It’s closed flat for the day, but despite this fall, moves in rates and bond markets suggest the fundamentals currently remain the same. The all-important balance between financial conditions and growth expectations is still there, ultimately supporting the bullishly inclined, as markets now prepare for tomorrow morning’s meeting of the US Federal Reserve.

      The unresolvable issues: It’s perhaps an assumption alone, but the (very vague) report leaked to the market about trade negotiations surely pertains to one of the well-understood, seemingly intractable issues embroiling the US and China. Those, at its core, unrelated to economics, but to strategic, and somewhat philosophical differences. These are intellectual property theft, currency manipulation, and Chinese military posturing in the Asian region – especially the South China Sea. These differences are relevant because they boil down to brutal power-politics, and an essential clash of ideologies. This isn’t to suggest a trade-deal, and future bilateral cooperation can’t exist between both parties; but that whatever deal is struck, it’s unlikely to put an end to geopolitical tensions.
