There’s a lot of talk that brokers will have to cut leverage now. After the events last week on the CHF (Switzerland franc) seeing several brokers going under because of loss in client accounts means we can expect some more regulation – especially on high leverage margin trading. I think leverage 1000 : 1 is just too much for anyone but then that is just an easy way to get in new starters with no money!
