So it has started.
My ActivTrades account changed leverage from 1:500 to 1:30.

I like what I trade, I trade what I like

What will happen to forex rebate programs? Aren't they falling to the same category with bonuses, which will be prohibited by the new regulations?


That is a good question. I don't know about other brokers, but I am with USGFX, an Australian broker. And they have confirmed that leverage and rebate programm won't be affected.

Thanks for the tip! I just hastily checked their web page, and it looks promising!

There is an article, which in my opinion, is pretty good.

Can EU traders use Aussie brokers now or are they restricted?

If that Aussie broker has already an European branch, they have to redirect you to that branch, see Pepperstone and at that branch you'll be faced with ESMA and its restrictions.
So look for brokers without European branches, ask them before opening an account.
This automatic redirecting to European branches is valid for brokers all over the world, not only Aussie brokers.

... as said before, Corespreads offered me to ransfer my account to their Aussie branch.

So this seems not to be valid for all.
Maybe the law isn't clear enough.
