I can't imagine many small traders those starting with less than £1000 have a hope of making a living from trading now. Quite right, probably better off putting your money in an ISA. That's what small traders have been restricted now - 10% annual returns if they're lucky, but not enough to make a living. I've been trading @25:1 for 2 weeks now and I'm barely breaking even. Hopefully in 3 months ESMA will have a change of heart and change it back, because this is only a trial. Furthermore, don't know how what effect Brexit will have!!!

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.


People with small amount will suffer a they will have to move offshore to be able to trade.


Not necessarily. It depends what they are looking for. High risk/high return or low risk/low return? ESMA ruling is not taking away the opportunity to beat any banks' or ISA's saving offers, but it makes it safer. 80% of traders lose money. ESMA helps those people to lose less money.


Are you employed by ESMA to advertise their policy? You registered here on myfxbook only 16 hours ago !!!


lol very funny.

Yes I'm newly registered. I think this website has a lot of goods. That, however is irrelevant to my post.

The man who wants nothing is invincible.

With me ESMA achieved excellent results, I closed all my accounts with European brokers !!!


That would be very often outcome
Small players have no other choice than move to shady unregulated waters
- risking the whole deposit
- unregulated offshore brokers will of course pay less taxes than regulated EU ones...

Low leverage is not preventing users from loses. It actually force them to close losing trades.

Esma are the tools of those who want the monopoly, surely you will find brokers who are honest and with the backbone that do not depend on the esma. We are for one demand-offer link. We are fighting for a free market that is not monopolized by any form of monopoly- imperialism.

Yep, surely the response from ALL small traders - including myself. 😞

'John The huge increase in margin requirements will significantly reduce the efficiency of market pricing and liquidity, and moreover negate the ability of investors to hedge their investment risks.

Absolutely correct.

So ESMA started to mess up the trading in Europe earlier than expected.
Got this email today. It is 29th MAY and the email says it will be applied since 28th May :)
Dear Client,

We would like to inform you about a new leverage limitation for EU clients which came into effect starting 28th of May, 2018. The leverage for all the clients from the European Union has been reduced to 1:50.
