ESMA Margins

Question

Guest TradingTimes

Will IG change the EU ESMA Laws after Brexit in the UK?

 

Really need to know this as the new laws have made it virtually impossible for me to trade the way that i did before.

 

as the Law is EU based they should definitely consider changing the law or completely get rid of it all together.

Hey, 

Thanks for you message. No matter what happens with Brexit the FCA have announced that they will be keeping leverage the same for retail clients. You can read about this by following the link below:

It is unfortunate that the regulations have stopped some retail clients trading.

And it looks like Australia is going to go down the same route as well and as expected the new regulations have lead to a rise in brokerages starting up in less well regulated parts of the globe. There is an interesting new twist too with some of these new brokerages using Bitcoin for deposits and withdrawals which enables them to dodge other regulations such as a need for client proof of identity and residency as well as broker 'know your customer' documentation.

@Caseynotes You're quite right there are large changes in ACIS regarding margin.

With regards to the new brokerages allowing clients to fund with Bitcoin we have heard of it but not looking to offer this payment method to any offices.

ASIC Product intervention: OTC binary options and CFDs

Thanks for the reply, can you check the ASIC link - is coming up as 'page cannot be found'.

quick read stopped for the draghi presser but, 

so an outright ban on binary options for retail,  

and initial margin of at least (for retail): gold 5%, indices 6.67%, commods other than gold 10%, crypto 50%, all else 20%.  

can't find FX, surely not under 'all else 20%'? otherwise basically in line with ESMA.

FX same as for Gold  5% (20:1)  big drop from 200:1 - worse than esma (3.33% - 30:1)
