everyone is talking about the ESMA issues that will come up next month
here is a short overview of how they will reflect on you
Leverage will be limited based on the Symbols you do trading:
(sadly Major and minor is not directly defined, so that likely up to the Broker)
Margin Calls will be generally at 50% Free margin
stop-outs on “per-account base” (this widely a standard anyway on most platforms for may years already)
Negative Balance Protection (on per account base)
important here is the “per account base“,
meaning if you have 2 accounts, the Broker can not use funds from the other account to pay for margin losses.
as of 1. August 2018, Marketing, Distribution and/or Sale of Binary options is prohibited in all of the European Union.
the European Commission gave ESMA the power to change this regulation in 3 Months, so this is sort of a Probation for 3 months. expect some more changes to come in November.
