Re: Forex Trading New Rules Same Game

There's a different problem with the leverage restrictions. It exposes a careful trader to additional risk that the broker will go bankrupt or otherwise breach its contract. Suppose you have $100K available for trading and you are willing to risk 2% per trade or 5% at any one time. At 100:1 leverage that means you could, with a reasonable cushion, put $15-20K into your brokerage account and trade with the idea that a deep drawdown might require refunding. The rest of your available trading assets could go someplace safer, perhaps someplace Federally insured. With 50:1, you need to deposit twice as much money with your broker. How does this protect the careful trader, who actually thinks about all the various risks that face his capital?
