Good day 2flat Ref Professional Trader "You may also not be eligible for compensation under the FSCS. You may not be entitled to refer complaints against Spread Co Limited to the Financial Ombudsman Service." Not cake and eat it. I just want to trade as pre ESMA. I don't need the EU to decide what I do with my money. Perhaps the ESMA rules could have applied to people trading in their first 3-4 years. After that you have a good idea if you want to continue or not.

Afternoon bracke . I did consider 'professional' trader status which operates with lower margin requirements but the sum required to be deposited in the account is very large plus the protective regulations do not cover professional traders. . Cake and eat it come to mind. Which protective regulations are these ? The one's that protect you from yourself? Sorry to go on, but I hate it when some faceless bureaucrat will not let me lose my money my chosen way, Cheers

Afternoon All. According to IG 79% of all Spread betting account's lose money, as one of the top 21% I must ask why profitability is not one of the criteria for elective professional traders. . Like most men they obsessed with size. . IG Do you have a financial instrument portfolio exceeding €500k? . It would appear profit or loss is of no importance, if you have a big enough account. Only us poor slob's must suffer the nanny states control's. Cheers

G'day bracke, It seems to me the problem is that the new rules don't distinguish between experienced traders who have a proven track record, such as yourself, and what I perceive to be the cowboy element, new to the game and gambling with money that they can't afford to repay when they lose. As buffett said, when the tide goes out, you find out who has been swimming naked, and others have to pick up the tab. In any event good luck with your antipodean expedition, I take it you will be trading indexes? Edit: Apparently 230 species of native amphibians, all frogs, can be found in Oz! ( hTTp://www.backyardbuddies.org.au/explore/frogs ) You'l be in safe hands with Bumpy Rocket, Eastern Banjo and friends....

No mention of frogs.....thank goodness. The ESMA rules mean that a far larger sum of money has to remain in the account when trading which I am not prepared to do. The IC account operates with low margin requirements and thus far less cash in the account. It will be interesting to see if any UK sbet companies cease trading as a result of the ESMA rules resulting in far less business.

It really depends whether the segregated funds are 'ring fenced' and treated the same as 'clients funds' in this country in the event of a liquidation. In any event, good luck with your new venture. :-) I note that Australia has more than 378 mammal species, 828 bird species, 4000 fish species, 300 species of lizards, 140 snake species, two crocodile species and around 50 types of marine mammal. Ample scope for a cartoon or two if needed!

"....is that the same as 'investment casino jockeys'?" ===================================================== Very similar. "Regulated by ASiC (AFSL #335692 ). IC Markets puts all client funds in a segregated bank account and uses tier-1 banks for this. IC Markets have been established since 2007, and have a head office in Australia." My understanding is that ASiC provides a compensation scheme similar to the FCA.

Worth noting that 'Yes you can open an account in Australia. One thing to note however is they do not have an equivalent to the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). So if the broker goes pop you will be hard pushed to recover any of your funds' or so I read....

I have edited an early post. The All Time Closing High was on 18 July 2018 - 2412. Today the intraday high was 2438 and close was 2409 so no coconut.

Fair enough 2flat if you trade for fun and don't take it too seriously but for dedicated retail traders the ESMA rules have largely ruined their trading.

Morning bracke Opened at 2430.6 Basicley I use the SB account for fun , and to stop me playing with my investment accounts. I have reduced the size per point, so I get the same buzz for smaller risk. Unfortunately or fortunately the account has been profitable so I may lose a little bit of spare cash .Hopefully the profits will build and the restrictions will not be a problem, as I enjoy the possibility to short. Cheers

Good day 2flat If you opened short close to the top you'r up 20 points as I type. I have other trades open and was not willing to put more cash into my account. Very annoying. I expect that the sbet/CFD providers will be feeling the affects. It does bring into question their viability.

You may notice an increase in share price That is probably due to my opening a small short. Cheers

What chance new highs today. Current highs are: Intraday - 07 June 2018 - 2441 Closing - 11 June 2018 - 2400. EDIT Apologies this is incorrect. it was 18 July 2412 I would normally be thinking about a short but the ESMA rules mean that a £10/point stake requires a margin of £4867. This might be acceptable if it was the only trade open but if other trades are open the account requires £20k-£30k which is a lot of 'dead' cash. Unfortunately the Australian account I have opened does not offer shares. Unless I can find a reliable broker offering UK shares without ESMA my AHT shorting days are very limited.

Last minute deal but what sort of deal. If it's a 'soft' one what chance Mrs May gets her marching orders or is 'requested' to fall on her sword.

All the commentators in the media are trying to make out that the negotiations are not moving at the pace they expect and that somehow we are not getting on with it. There is a countdown and the clocks ticking. There are 2 positions opposed. Something has to happen deal , bad deal or no deal. And the transfer deadline ends tomorrow !! You see we could be talking about football or Brexit its going to the wire as they say ..... Of course it is - just that TM is weak and unstable and Barnier expects her to crack first. Trump would do a better job of negotiating....

Good day fenners Yes it is and back to 2400. IF and you will note a big IF a Brexit deal is reached the £/$ is likely to rise 10%. What will that do to the FTSE and British companies who trade in the US. There is of course the alternative and no deal is reached so maybe a 10% drop. Currently British exports should be selling their wares 'hand over fist'.
