As of now, I can’t have both slices of the pizza.
I can go with a regulated broker, FCA regulated and all that good stuff but max 1:30 leverage or go with a UK broker that moves you around to another country via their paperwork to give you 1:500 leverage but losing all of the FCA protection.
For me leverage is my main tool and part of my risk.
Just like IC Markets, I wasn’t too fussy where the broker is based, and Australia seemed pretty safe - as long as they were reliable, and offered higher leverage.
Last few weeks IC Markets have been taking the ****.
Once I get my funds I’ll be continuing from here.
But just starting with £10K and keeping the rest with me, essentially making the risk £4K.
Then we’ll come back to this.
