Why becoming a Professional client?

On August 1st 2018, The European Securities and Markets Authority's (ESMA) new requirements relating to conditions for providing CFD trading to Retail clients of financial organizations that perform their operations in the European Union countries will come into effect.

 

Leverage limitations

Starting from July 30th 2018, the maximum leverage value for all newly-opened CFD positions will be limited depending on the asset type:

     
Instruments Professional

In case there are open positions on your accounts on July 30th 2018, the leverage value for them won’t be changed and the margin requirements will remain intact until the moment these positions are closed. This rule applies to the accounts opened on CopyFX and RAMM investment platforms as well.

 

"Stop Out" on a per account basis

This feature will standardize the percentage of margin (at 50% of minimum required margin) at which a provider is required to close out one or more of your open CFD positions.

Negative balance protection on a per account basis

From now on, all the traders are guaranteed with the negative balance protection. However, this service has been available for RoboMarkets clients since a long time. Negative balance protection ensures that a trader can't lose more money than they have on their account.
