    I'm not sure whether this particular forum is the right home for this thread - mods please feel free to move it if you can think of somewhere better to be asking the below. I was hoping some of you with good knowledge of reports generation in MT4 can help out. Use case: I want to generate a...

    Potential mass exodus from Spreadbetters.

    Am I right this is about as clear as what's been agreed (or otherwise) on Brexit!

    Potential mass exodus from Spreadbetters.

    Anyone resident in Europe who opened an account with an Aussie broker in order to sidestep the more onerous terms of the ESMA regs (i.e. margin) may want to take a look at this statement from Aussie regulator ASIC: 19-088MR Some AFS licensees may be breaking overseas laws I asked IC Markets...

    Potential mass exodus from Spreadbetters.

    I tried contacting Dukascopy to find out more about them. Chat session during European office hours left unanswered after 30 mins. Not the most promising start!

    Potential mass exodus from Spreadbetters.

    Not entirely accurate. It depends entirely on the broker. IC, mentioned upthread, will happily open accounts for UK and EU residents. IG tell me they wouldn't feel comfortable opening an Aussie account for a UK resident. I'm not endorsing either, btw.
