EU Securities Markets Authority has recently passed a number of important decisions regarding how investment services related to trading in Forex and CFDs should be provided to retail clients. These decisions are being implemented to safeguard retail clients from excess risks of investing into leveraged instruments.
Please note that the measures required by the new regulations only apply to Retail client accounts, and if you are a Professional account holder, neither of the changes below is going to apply to you.
Being an EU financial institution operating under MiFID, TeleTrade-DJ International Consulting Ltd is taking all measures to comply with the new regulations, and we hereby notify you of the following important changes in our trading conditions that result from the ESMA (EU) 2018/795 decision and that will be introduced as of July 30, 2018:
Our transition to new trading conditions will require that, beginning July 30, 2018, all currently existing retail client accounts would be put to 'close only' mode. You will be able to close your existing positions at your own will, with no deadlines for closing, but you won't be able to open new positions in the currently existing accounts. Once all positions in the existing accounts are closed, such accounts will undergo the change in trading setting to update the margin and stop-out levels, and thereafter you will be able to trade again without restrictions under the conditions updated as per above. Alternatively, you will be able to open new retail accounts and transfer available balances there to be able to trade immediately, without waiting until the existing positions are closed.
Please note that for any of your existing positions (i.e. those open before July 30, 2018), margin requirements will not change and all your positions will remain as they have been opened, until such positions are closed at your discretion and convenience.
Users of our TeleTrade Invest service should be particularly aware of the important implications of the above changes, namely:
We would like to note that the above changes and product restrictions are legally required to be implemented for Retail clients, but will not be in effect for clients categorized as Professional. We kindly ask you to refer to https://my.teletrade.eu/#professional_status in your Client Login to check the status of your categorization, and apply to us for any corrections or updates that you feel are warranted.
If you have any questions with respect to the above, please contact us at email@example.com or via your regional client relationship representative.
