1. Answer the ESMA's call for evidence on their Responce Form found on this page.

https://www.esma.europa.eu/press-new...m_consultation

2. On the drop down tab enter "Individuals"

3. Under ‘Institution’ type ‘N/A’

4. Attach (upload) a brief or detailed complaint about the proposed margin changes. Using Microsoft Word or Excel.
(or any over pdf txt doc docx xls xlsx ppt pptx pps ppsx odt ods od format)

That's it your done. Have your say in under 5 mins.
You have until the end of the day Paris time on Sunday 4th February.

Edit: Closing date is end of day Monday 5th not Sunday 4th.
Edit: The esma site is back up and running now. But instead of requesting a submission in document form.
They are now only accepting a standard email (the address is in the link.)

My two cents as a sheople:

1. Petitions dont matter. They are just another illusion to make it appear as though the people have a say

2. The elite brokers ( like IG etc. which are worth billions, potentially Rothschilds money ) are hand in glove ( and potentially owners of ) with regulatory bodies

3. Only one realistic aim - to screw anyone who loses, and not allow him / her the chance to declare bankruptcy

In short, another law by the classes to screw the masses.

Do you trade via UK financial spreadbetting or CFD's?

Sorry, sort-of off-topic but bloody hell Tomorton, I've just been reading the thread about ESMA on FF!

I'm tempted to sign up just so that I can back you up in the discussion with those strange conspiracy-theorising SB haters!

You have a lot of patience, hats off to you!

Its a weird phenomenon. So many traders view SB firms as scammers who should be regulated out of business. Yet they can't back it up with evidence or experience: they feel they don't need to, as its just what "everybody knows".

I know that they are wrong---that's good enough for me. How do I know? I've traded EU, GU, Dax and UST today and have not lost on any of them. It's been a fairly brainless day, I agree but, still, how can I say that SB firms are scammers under those circumstances?
