Hi guys,

I got message from multiple Australian brokers.

They are going to cripple leverage the same way ESMA did.

So decrease to 1:30.

What are you going to do?

To be honest, I never had any complaint in doing leverage. I like to stick with lower lever leverage.

If you have 2 years of experience, you can then avail leverage 4-500 with some brokers. They call it professional account.

I don’t really mind using a lower leverage and it just might work for you. Good luck.

it should not have much effect. but obviously one has the option to move to an offshore entity.

Yeah i checked with fxview they have 500x for professionals but that is not for retailers at all. i think its time to get used to 30x or move to offshores.

Hi, if you are not based in Australia, you might consider Global Prime.

I recently spent quite a lot of time searching for a non-ESMA broker that offered bit more than 30:1, but at same time not a bucket shop, and analysing using the excellent Myfxbook tools for looking at spreads and swaps. Filtered down to a short list that looked decent but also offered higher leverage, which basically left me with a few ASIC brokers. Opened some demos. Having read reviews at forexpeacearmy and experiencing their support, I went with Global Prime. Had no idea ASIC was following ESMA, but fortunately as an overseas customer covered by a different license, leverage will stay at 100:1. I think you can apply for 200:1 but they deliberately don't go above that because it leads to blow ups.

The other broker I used to use a bit that is higher than ESMA is Dukascopy Swiss (NOT Dukascopy Europe) - with MT4 their leverage is 100:1, higher with their jForex platform, but there is reduction in leverage over the weekend so need to be careful if you are holding positions.

It doesn’t matter to me much because I prefer trading with low leverage. I find it very risky to use high leverage.

Any idea on how much ASIC has restricted the leverage down to?
