Advice on avoiding ESMA restrictions

As a UK resident I'd like to open an IG account & trade a small account with cfd's somewhere outside of ESMA restrictions but am unsure where will be best. Can anyone point me in the direction of an article, forum post or any other info regarding how to make a decision. Does Switzerland have any advantages over say Australia for example? I see Switzerland offers a deposit compensation scheme but Australia doesn't.

Thanks for any help

Good morning,

Can anyone shed some light on this subject, please?

So I have switched to Aussie CFD account however I have noticed when buying stocks I get charged a commission of £10 per trade and I will be liable for tax as well. So what are the benefits compared to spread betting and CFDs?

Hence why I am with CFDs now is because Aussie account does not offer spread betting, will they be bringing that option in soon? 

Regards Trev

I just read the ASIC consultation paper. Part of it was drivel and part was fair in some respects. Open to consultation until 1 October 2019. Hopefully they do what they did in Cyprus and relax the margin limit restrictions for traders with "enhanced trading experience".

I just replied an email to ASIC and CC to IG

I'm not Aussie and in my country there is no such high leverage products to trade. That's why I try to find high leveraged products to trade, and IG is one of the top provider who can trust in pricing, execution, safe of funds and other professional services. I dont want to use unregulated or brokers who setup on some islands somewhere....

 

I feel a lot of upset more than I lost my trades recently on indices. It means I habe no chance to use high leverage to gain more while if you lose in trading, you can come back but change in leverage significantly, no chances.

once the changes take affect, I will be looking for a new broker, cfd provider - able to offer the leverage we are accustomed to. Any suggestions appreciated

I'm sure there are plenty of fly-by-night operators in dodgy banana republics/tax havens that will happily oblige you.

Probably not, the FCA seems to be fully behind esma and the regulations.

 

Didn't the CEO of Hargreaves Landsown come out in favour of Brexit because he viewed these regulations as 'holding back Britain's entrepreneurial spirit'?  We all know what these folk mean by expressions like that.   Shylock demands his pound of flesh.

    • Naturally after the debut of ERC 404, it was only natural that developers would begin to take advantage of its ability to bridges the gap between fungible (ERC-20) and non-fungible (ERC-721) tokens. One such project is the Dancing Beans ($BEANS) which allows fractional ownership of hilarious meme-inspired creatures NFTs on the blockchain. About a week ago I wrote about the exponential rise of Pandora to 20,000% plus in just five days setting the bar high for competition! I also spoke about other NFT projects like CryptoPunks and Bored Ape Yacht Club but Dancing Beans brings a fresh twist with. While Focusing on fun and interactivity and community-driven approaches the Dancing Beans team is constantly listening to their fans and creating new experiences based on their feedback... For me though, the question is if Beans can follow the successful dancesteps of Pandora and make players, NFT collectors and investors dance about the figures in their wallets. With my fingers crossed, I'm inclined to hold the Beans I bought on Bitget after the recent listing and it has already gone up by 24%... What are your thoughts guys? Pandora style or nah?

Our latest analysis, following the close on Friday, reveals a subdued ending that aligns perfectly with the peak of Wave i), indicating a dip in short-term momentum. This scenario sets the stage for the formation of Wave (c) of ii), marking a pivotal moment for traders to gear up for the upcoming long trade setup across the indices and specific stocks discussed in our analysis. It's important to note, however, that Apple (AAPL) may stand as an exception in this trend. Currently, we are maintaining open long positions in several stocks, with the strategic goal of further building these positions into Wave iii) and beyond. Our strategy includes adding to and adjusting our entries for Microsoft (MSFT), Nvidia (NVDA), Amazon (AMZN), and fine-tuning the entry point for Alphabet (GOOGL). The latter presents a heightened risk in the forthcoming trading session, warranting a cautious approach.
