Questions and Answers
Why is there a leverage limit on retail terms?
Retail accounts have a limited leverage as a result of rules of the Financial Conduct Authority designed to protect retail investor.
Trading in financial markets is a complex area, which requires extensive learning and dedication in order to succeed and there is no easy money at all, just like elsewhere.
Why is there a prohibition on bonus payments to retail clients?
Retail clients do not receive any rebates, cashback and other bonuses because the rules of the Financial Conduct Authority prohibit giving a retail client monetary and non-monetary benefits, other than information and research tools.
Why do I need a negative balance protection?
When trading on margin, there is a non-zero possibility of reaching a negative balance, e.g. if you have a large position with high leverage and the market moves abruptly against it.
Retail terms provide a full protection against negative balances and professional terms have a limit of 50,000 EUR for covering negative balances, as per our Policy.
According to statistics of Admiral Markets Group, the average compensation of negative balances made in 2017 was 89 EUR.
