So far, every article I've read only mentions CFD's and Binary Options.
What would be the alternative if you still wanted a reasonable size leverage ? Some of the uk brokers have offices outside the EU, Does it apply to where the broker is situated or the client ?Nice that IG are being pro-active and contacting their clients. I have suggested to LCG they could do likewise but they won't yet say whether they will or won't, nor whether they will do anything but wait for the ESMA decision. Not very encouraging.
If contacted for my opinion on these proposed leverage rates I would have to say I would close my account immediately they became mandatory, no point continuing.
