I don't mind the ESMA ruling. Yes it will require more funds to trade with to actually make money but knowing the fact that nearly 80% of Forex traders lose money - while brokers do make profit - ESMA did a favour for small time players. Big time players can still go with large risks but people with smaller accounts will not lose much with mistakes now. And mistakes are more frequent than getting things right.
The man who wants nothing is invincible.
