Australian financial regulator ASIC starting to sound a lot like the EU regulator ESMA with regards to high leverage for retail clients, leverage reduction may be on it's way.

"While the focus of the European regulators has been on delivering a plain and simple message that retail clients are losing too much money while trading, the ASIC’s focusing on a specific issue – the structure of markets and “ridiculous leverage”.

"Following in the footsteps of ESMA, Australian financial regulator the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) is planning on adding restrictions on CFD trading and completely banning binary options. Whilst the latter is no surprise, are ASIC’s measures regarding CFD’s in the country’s best interest?"

Could be worse🙄

In Germany they have  to pay tax on losses also? (2021)

"The most important change in a nutshell: In future, losses from forward transactions can only be offset against profits from forward transactions and only up to an amount of EUR 10,000 per year. This leads to paradoxical results in taxation. In extreme cases, limiting the offsetting of losses can even result in taxes having to be paid even though losses have been generated (see example below)"

"Taxation of futures: the worst fears come true! A change in the taxation of futures creates a lot of discussion among traders. GodmodeTrader asked the Federal Ministry of Finance. The answer provides clarity - and new worry lines."

so this is a German govt initiative then, thank goodness we're leaving.

    • Does anybody know the BIL (SPDR Bloomberg 1-3 Month T-Bill ETF) equivalent with a GBP currency hedge? I want the interest yield but I don't want the currency risk.
    • Capital, win loss ratio. If you have a trading edge and you can consistently win 50% of your trades, so your winning 5 trades out of 10. So if your risking 1% of your capital per trade, out of your 10 trades 5 would be losers, so that’s 5% loss and realistically out of the 5 winning trades, some would make small profits, some break even and 1, 2 or 3 could run nicely IF you can let your profits run, basically your making money out of 2 trades out of the 10 trades (80/20 Rule Pareto principle) So a $20,000 acct risking 1% is $200 per trade, this will keep the trader with his trade risk based on being able to win 50% of his trades. A long term trend trader can win with 30% wining trade. Basically you need to know your numbers. Rgds Pete
    • Investing in stocks can be a great way to grow your wealth over time. However, there are different approaches that investors can take when choosing which stocks to buy. Two of the most popular approaches are growth investing and value investing. Growth Investing Growth investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are expected to grow at a faster rate than the overall market. These companies are often in industries that are growing quickly, such as technology or healthcare. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies will be able to generate higher profits in the future, which will lead to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of growth investing is that it can potentially provide higher returns than the overall market. However, it is also riskier than other investment strategies, as these companies often have higher valuations and more volatile stock prices. Value Investing Value investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are undervalued by the market. These companies may be in industries that are out of favour or have recently experienced challenges, but they have strong fundamentals and a history of profitability. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies are undervalued and that their true value will be recognized in the future, leading to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of value investing is that it can potentially provide lower risk than growth investing. However, it may also provide lower returns in the long run, as these companies may not have the same growth potential as companies in the growth investing category. Comparing Growth and Value Investing Growth and value investing are two different approaches to stock investing, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Growth investing can potentially provide higher returns but is riskier, while value investing can provide lower risk but potentially lower returns. An investor may choose one approach or a combination of both. A portfolio that contains a mix of growth and value stocks can provide a balance of potential returns and risk. Conclusion Both growth investing and value investing can be effective ways to invest in stocks. The key is to understand the potential risks and rewards of each approach and to choose the one that aligns with your investment goals and risk tolerance. Analyst Peter Mathers TradingLounge™
