What Do You Think About the 1:50 Leverage Limit for Russian Traders?

Recommended Posts

It is indeed not fair, since the regulatory institutions pose this regualtions without and concern of the opinion of the traders. I believe that we as traders need to receive more empowerment to exercise our opinion, instead of taking everything for granted. I found out this interesting article, which discuss the case and even presents some survey of CRFIN: Russian traders not satisfied with 1:50 leverage limitAtoZ Forex

Our counterparts in rus, etc. are getting hosed in many ways these days in the curr wars... hey - what goes around, comes around ...

 

Btw - For the idiots (in any ‘jurisdiction’) who find 1:50 ++ leverage is not 'enough'

Let them eat UltraCoin :rofl:

They surely, do get hosed in many ways. Although, I do no want to say that they are deserving this. Also, the 1:50 leverage is enough for me personally, however the majority traders do not comply with this. Haha, serve them Ultra-coin for breakfast.

we all know the answer, same happen with US regulation long time ago. many retail trader will disappointed, and most upper traders doesn't bother.

this could be spread across other EU country, we may had similar leverage for all brokers globally.. not much we can do about it, real trader surely adapt at any market circumstances, including lower leverage.

On the positive side, their losses will be controlled automatically.

Furthermore i do think that the maximum Leverage should be 1:50 just like its 1:4 with the equities brokers in the US. Having a big leverage makes a trader take heavy risks. I know risk can be controlled bt in a fast moving market anyone can get that big knock back cause of this high leverage.

Thanks, Prax and Ammeo, for you view on the positive side of the russian leverage limit. I surely agree that it would reduce the risks for traders, but eventually they take away the other possibilities. It's in the best interest of the larger parties and as little men we are not able to surge against it. Adaptation is indeed here the keyword, real traders keep their spirits high!

1:50 leverage is still huge and if you are using more than that its more like playing rather than trading.

 

I think for trading 1:10 is more than enough. Limiting leverage to 1:50 max should keep most beginners from loosing money very fast.

    • Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Mexican Peso
      COT Change (52W) / C – 28%, LS – 27%, SS – 31% /
      FTG Score / D -29.6, W -18, M -46.1 /
      Huge change in Traders positions (bullish cot signal) and the stresses in the market are also becoming more and more bullish. Because of the FTG scores I’d be neglecting this market for now. Swiss Franc
      COT Extreme / C – 567, LS – 563 report, SS – All Time COT extreme /
      FTG Score / D -38.6, W 10.2, M -14 /
      The extreme became even greater than last week, but the price was unable to continue its decline. Maybe the downtrend is over? I’d be betting on that more… Since we have still a negative FTG score (daily), I may wait until it becomes positive. Australian Dollar
      COT Extreme / C - 119, LS – 118, SS - 120 report COT extreme /
      FTG Score / D -22.3, W -12.2, M -33.1 /
      Maybe not as large extreme as for CHF, but still big enough to consider taking a position on the LONG side. Same as in case of MXP and CHF, it would be nice to see supporting FTG scores. All the best,

    • Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (May 21 - 25, 2018)    Here’s the market outlook for the week:   EURUSD Dominant bias: Bearish This pair trended downwards last week, testing the support line at 1.1750. The market went essentially sideways on Thursday and Friday, and may go below the support line at 1.1750, to target another support line at 1.1700. About 250 pips have been lost this month, and it just seems to be the beginning. The outlook on EUR pairs is bearish for this week (EUR would be seen going downwards versus major currencies).     USDCHF Dominant bias: Bullish This trading instrument is bullish in the long-term, but neutral in the short-term. Price has been consolidating in the past two weeks; whereas that is not strong enough to render the recent bullish bias useless. There is going to be a breakout at last, but the movement to the upside will no longer be a serious thing. While USDCHF is supposed to go upwards, there would be a challenge to the upwards move, because CHF is expected to gain serious stamina this week (major currencies will drop versus it). This means that the coming strength in CHF may hinder USDCHF from getting seriously pushed further northwards.    GBPUSD Dominant bias: Bearish The Cable is bearish in the long-term, but neutral in the short-term. The bearish movement that started last month, has continued this month (although price has been ranging in the short-term). There remains a valid Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, despite the fact that it has been ranging in the last two weeks. A breakout is imminent, which would most probably favor bears. The accumulation territories at 1.3450, 1.3400 and 1.3350 could be reached thus week. . USDJPY Dominant bias: Bullish The bullish movement that was witnessed last week has saved the ongoing bullish bias in the market. The bullish movement started in March 2018 and it has held out till now. The supply level at 111.00 was tested before price closed below it on Friday. This week, there is a high probability that the market would continue going upwards, reaching the supply levels at 111.00, 111.50 and 112.00.     EURJPY Dominant bias: Bearish    The bias on this cross is bearish, but it is a precarious bias. What the market did last week was a zigzag movement without a clear directional propensity. Price moved upwards, downwards, and upwards again, within the supply zone at 131.50 and the demand zone at 129.50. A 200 –pip movement to the upside or to the downside would easily change the bias to bullish or bearish, and that is exactly what is expected this week.     GBPJPY Dominant bias: Bullish The market is bullish, at least, in the very short-term. The current bullishness (which is not very strong), started on May 8, and it has been dragged on in spite of constant interferences from bears. Price succeeded in moving further northwards last week, almost reaching the supply zone at 150.00, before closing below it on May 18. This week, too much weakness in GBP could frustrate a clean bullish movement. Nevertheless, the supply zone at 150.00, might once again, be breached.    This forecast is concluded with the quote below:   “According to Kermit the Frog, it’s not easy being green. For skillful traders, it’s not hard to be green. May your trades be green.” – attributed        Source: www.tallinex.com
