After having observed responses of competitors to ESMA leverage restrictions, we’ll also evaluate whether to offer – in a fully transparent way – access to more leverage through an entity regulated outside of Europe.
@ignacio I so hope that this idea is not dropped and still considered for a release the soonest possible. Leverage is not only about trading risk but also about depositing less (minimize counterparty risk ...when there is no deposit insurance anyway - but really to release funds to use elsewhere)
Regarding the pro status, I admit I have doubts if getting the pro status for CFD-FX would entitle the client to be qualified as a pro for the futures offering automatically, or if it could be separated ? Being considered pro on futures is something you may want to avoid due to the market data fees rising to more than $100 / month for every exchange subscribed afterwards. With CFD-FX you wouldn’t get such overhead cost from changing your status
