Could you give more details about this regulation?
Never heard about it.
Why broker should luquidate your position
(unless you have a margin call, of course)?

supposedly it was the FSA that sent out regulation on hedging any hedged positions would be closed at end of day and attached to this regulation was a fifo which seems to make a drawdown plan a very difficult trade

fxdd email said it was started on june 1st

noone22,

This should provide some basic info about the matter.

The ruling only applicable to US brokers with membership with NFA.

hmm seems to be controlling profits

and yes i know it also controlls the losing trade but we all know the house wins seems a little one sided for the ever poorer man

No more stop losses, no more t/p orders and no more MT4 platform through brokers that have to comply?

I guess us aussies can count ourselves lucky those regulations don't apply to us. But I wouldn't be surprised if they do eventuate here

Don't trust the US Government-dems or repubs

Stand strong. This move is a further loss of my and all of our liberty and freedom. Hedging and shorting isn't hurting the US economy any where near as much as the government deficit spending us into a huge black debt hole we will never come out of. It is time for good men to stand up.jb

Interesting that China is stockpiling resource materials whilst it's cheap and the USA is stockpiling debt whilst it's cheap. I wonder which strategy will work best?

Somebody hates America and her industrial base. When was the last nuc power plant was built here? In France?

When was the last oil refinery built? Here and else where?

The bottom line, short the USD every time.

Debt is an economy killer. Inflation the knock out blow. Forex trading is more important now for financial survival than its been for a long time. I must live too close to the beltway. jb
