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)

    • 06 December 2022 Spot Gold The price of gold did extend its move higher reaching our 1805 resistance target before finding resistance and once again starting to retrace. The moving averages suggest keeping a long bias to trades on the commodity. We are waiting for the current pullback to end with a bullish candle stick pattern before looking to find long entry once again. This is provided that the pullback does not extend past (close below) the 1735 support level. In this scenario, 1805 provides the initial upside resistance target, a break of which would further target the 1875 level.   Brent Crude Oil The price of brent crude oil could not break resistance at 8770 and has instead retraced back to support between levels 8220 and 8080. It appears time now for the commodity price to either break or bounce off the 8080-support level. A close below this level would consider a downside breakout and target a move to 7630. A bullish candle stick reversal (before a downside break occurs) would instead target a move back to 8770, while a close below the reversal low could be used as a stop loss indication in this scenario.         Our weekly technical report is compiled by in-house senior market analyst, Shaun Murison.
    • There was some exceptional volatility last week and the hints of tentative trend developments – most notably a breakdown of the Dollar and attempted rally for US indices. Yet, those moves have abated to start the new week with data and technical levels playing a bigger role in market conviction.        
    • The British Retain Consortium has released its retail sales monitor for November showing an improvement over October. However the chief economist at the BRC has warned that the sales were as a result of the Black Friday events and so provide slim margins for business owners.
