FCA-Restricting regular traders from March???

Recommended Posts

Hi guys just have seen the news this morning on some news feeding channel about FCA  and EU restricting ordinary or the way they call as retail customers from trading CFD's. So my question is does anyone have some info about this and is it possible to avoid such a thing. Its very frustrating because ive just mastered my strategy and was planing to make a lots of money in the next 18 months or so now im very sad. Or may be the solution will be opening account somewhere else? What are your suggestions guys ?

Hi @DarthVader,  the news you are referring to is the FCA proposal to make permanent the new regulations that were already implemented earlier this year on a temporary basis so nothing should change to what is already in place.

although it makes an additional note of turbos and crypto! 

the best way to view this is look at IGs share price. The ESMA stuff caused a move from 900p to about 550, whilst on the back of this recent FCA stuff I think there was actually a bullish movement for the day.

    • APAC brief - 21 Mar
      Market action proves it again: this market hinges on the Fed: The US Fed has proven itself as the most important game in town for traders. The FOMC met this morning, and lo-and-behold: the dovish Fed has proven more dovish than previously thought; the patient Fed has proven more patient that previously thought. Interest rates have remained on hold, but everyone knew that was to be the case today. It was about the dot-plots, the neutral-rate, the economic projections, and the balance sheet run-off. On all accounts, the Fed has downgraded their views on the outlook. And boy, have markets responded. The S&P500 has proven its major-sensitivity to FOMC policy and whipsawed alongside a fall in US Treasury yields, as traders price-in rate cuts from the Fed in the future.


      The US Dollar sends some asset classes into a tizz: The US Dollar has tumbled across the board consequently, pushing gold prices higher. The Australian Dollar, even for all its current unattractiveness, has burst higher, to be trading back toward the 0.7150 mark. Commodity prices, especially those of thriving industrial metals, have also rallied courtesy of the weaker greenback. Emerging market currencies are collectively stronger, too. This is all coming because traders are more-or-less betting that the Fed is at the end of its hiking cycle, and financial conditions will not be constricted by policy-maker intervention. Relatively cheap money will continue to flow, as yields remain depressed, and allow for the (sometimes wonton) risk-taking conditions that markets have grown used to in the past decade.
