ESMA — changes in the regulation of CFD trading in Europe



The European regulator ESMA, the European Agency for securities and markets, published new regulatory requirements from 1 June 2018, which shall enter into force on 1 August 2018 - regardless of the internal regulation in the UK and Germany.

What are the directions requirements of the ESMA? Changes at the forefront of protective measures for retail customers. From the point of view ESMA CFD trading is not suitable for each retail client, because many traders with excessive shoulder in the past lost too much money.

In the future among traders CFDs are two main groups or classifications: retail and professional clients.


ESMA — changes in Retail clients and professional clients

Clients EU-regulated brokers are divided into two groups: the default will be assigned the status of a retail client. Customers classified as retail clients will enjoy unlimited protection from additional financial obligations when trading CFDs throughout Europe with the entry into force of the new rules ESMA.

According to the European regulator, to retail customers is necessary to limit the maximum leverage, since many of these clients are losing too much money if they leverage too high.

Another group of clients is referred to as Professional Clients. These clients are considered to be very experienced and may continue to use high leverage 1: 500 for my trading CFDs with Хmarket.

Many traders worried about the fact that the new requirements "cut shoulder Forex". If You want to continue trading with the same shoulder level, check whether You need to receive professional status.

To be included in the group of professional customer, the customer must submit a request for reclassification. Additional information can be found here.


Changes of leverage for retail clients — what shoulder to choose beginner

Experienced traders know for a long time: leverage effect multiplies not only potential profits but also losses. The chances of increased profit we always face a huge risk of loss.

From the point of view of the ESMA, retail customers are mainly beginners in trading or less experienced customers who may not always appreciate the effect of leverage and the risks associated with CFD trading.

In the result, ESMA has decided that retail customers will be given maximum leverage 20 most traded indices like DAX30, not later than 01 August 2018 in the European Union! This applies to all brokers in the EU.





For the major Forex pairs, that is the most traded currency pairs, the maximum available leverage was set at 30. Below is a detailed overview of the available levels of the shoulder.


The terms for professional clients


The CFD brokers is the ability to continue to offer a high level of leverage experienced professional clients.

A group of professional customers is an extremely experienced and professional in trading CFD, so the CFD broker does not need to offer any extra protection.

Depending on the provider this may mean that for these clients there are margin risks. Хmarket updated the policy's negative balance protection specially before applying any changes.


Leverage in trading


For many, the main reason why CFD trading is high leverage. In traditional stocks trading without the shoulder usually of the real rate of return is three to ten percent (per year).

For products with leverage like CFDs, the yield from ten to fifty percent during one day are possible depending on the amount of leverage, but also increase losses. One inextricably follows another!

Since leverage also increases the possibility of losses as of December 2018 inexperienced retail clients will also be "protected from themselves". Shoulder for more than 30 main Forex pairs is no longer available for this group of customers.

In CFD trading leverage reflects the margin required to enter a trading position.

Margin is the amount you must have as a Deposit on your trading account to hold the position. The rest is borrowed from the broker.

EXAMPLE. If you use 1:500 leverage you can get profit or loss in the amount of 500 percent when the market moves 1 percent!





Thus, the effect of leverage allows you to work in the markets even with low trading capital - in both directions.

It is not for everyone! Need proper risk management (using mental stop loss) and sufficient experience.
