Brokerage w/ 4am-8pm trading + otc/futures/forex/options/etc

I know that brokerage questions get asked alot and I apologize if this has been answered before, but is TWS the only brokerage that offers this? TWS is way more robust of a platform than I need right now and their fees also seem pretty robust, so Id like to know if there are any other options before I switch.
A UI that doesn't look like it's straight out of the 90's would be a cool plus, but I think thats asking too much!
Thanks for any recommendations.

not PAWS P4 - The foreign exchange market (Forex, FX, or currency market) is a global decentralized or over-the-counter (OTC) market for the trading of currencies.

it was a fine day in gods green heaven when all of a sudden god was overthrown in a god war and replaced with four (from bfb) and his waifu x (also from bfb)
four: it is such a great day to overthrow the natural order in such a fine sunday afternoon
x: yes, yes it does
but because god was overthrown, that means that whatever god had put in place was now also dead. the minecraft nether suddenly froze over, freeing cake from his eternal torment, and allowing him to return to the surface world to wreak havoc
meanwhile, the 18 naked cowboys in the showers at ram ranch realize that something was up because cowboys just have that sense, just like the sense they have when one of their cattle disappears. its a spidey sense of sorts
meanwhile spierman was swinging around in new york when he crashed into a building mid-swing and died, he was later found dead in miami
cake finally got back to the surface realm, exiting through the grand canyon (located in arizona, which everyone knows is the gateway to heck) and does an evil laugh
cake: ha. ha. ha. i am now here to seek my revenge upon the living and destroy all mortals and gods, the world shall bow to me and become my oyster, and then i will marry needle and she will be my waifu again ahahah
immediately the ram ranch cowboys discovered that cake had freed himself from his prison and rode through the desert to stop him, their bulging pecs managed to reflect most of the death rays cake shot out of his eyes (because he can do that now because hes super evil) but 18 cowboys simply wasnt enough, and one by one they all fell
cake: ahahah, you can do nothing to top me now, i am now the vessel of the devil and herobrine and freddy and bonnie and chica and foxy and hezbollah hotel and they now all bow to me, you shall all pay for sins
meanwhile, in the god realm, the effects of the powers of heck being unleashed upon the surface realm finally seep into heaven, causing the squabbles of petty men to reach the gods
x: im leaving you four!!!!
four: what but why
x: two is a way hotter host and he has a BRITISH ACCENT!!!
four: i thought you liked my accent
x: ITS DUMB!!!
four: x no dont leave me :(((
but x did anyway and went to two and they lived happily in a mansion of clouds
four: wait if x ends up with two, then who do i end up with?
four ended up with donut instead, imprisoning him into having to deal with the squabbles of mere men
all seems to be lost... but a ray of hope still shines on
THE END (of this chapter, the next one is the thrilling conclusion!!!)

Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Swaps* (*But Were Afraid To Ask)

Hello, dummies
It's your old pal, Fuzzy.
As I'm sure you've all noticed, a lot of the stuff that gets posted here is - to put it delicately - fucking ridiculous. More backwards-ass shit gets posted to wallstreetbets than you'd see on a Westboro Baptist community message board. I mean, I had a look at the daily thread yesterday and..... yeesh. I know, I know. We all make like the divine Laura Dern circa 1992 on the daily and stick our hands deep into this steaming heap of shit to find the nuggets of valuable and/or hilarious information within (thanks for reading, BTW). I agree. I love it just the way it is too. That's what makes WSB great.
What I'm getting at is that a lot of the stuff that gets posted here - notwithstanding it being funny or interesting - is just... wrong. Like, fucking your cousin wrong. And to be clear, I mean the fucking your *first* cousin kinda wrong, before my Southerners in the back get all het up (simmer down, Billy Ray - I know Mabel's twice removed on your grand-sister's side). Truly, I try to let it slide. I do my bit to try and put you on the right path. Most of the time, I sleep easy no matter how badly I've seen someone explain what a bank liquidity crisis is. But out of all of those tens of thousands of misguided, autistic attempts at understanding the world of high finance, one thing gets so consistently - so *emphatically* - fucked up and misunderstood by you retards that last night I felt obligated at the end of a long work day to pull together this edition of Finance with Fuzzy just for you. It's so serious I'm not even going to make a u/pokimane gag. Have you guessed what it is yet? Here's a clue. It's in the title of the post.
That's right, friends. Today in the neighborhood we're going to talk all about hedging in financial markets - spots, swaps, collars, forwards, CDS, synthetic CDOs, all that fun shit. Don't worry; I'm going to explain what all the scary words mean and how they impact your OTM RH positions along the way.
We're going to break it down like this. (1) "What's a hedge, Fuzzy?" (2) Common Hedging Strategies and (3) All About ISDAs and Credit Default Swaps.
Before we begin. For the nerds and JV traders in the back (and anyone else who needs to hear this up front) - I am simplifying these descriptions for the purposes of this post. I am also obviously not going to try and cover every exotic form of hedge under the sun or give a detailed summation of what caused the financial crisis. If you are interested in something specific ask a question, but don't try and impress me with your Investopedia skills or technical points I didn't cover; I will just be forced to flex my years of IRL experience on you in the comments and you'll look like a big dummy.
TL;DR? Fuck you. There is no TL;DR. You've come this far already. What's a few more paragraphs? Put down the Cheetos and try to concentrate for the next 5-7 minutes. You'll learn something, and I promise I'll be gentle.
Ready? Let's get started.
1. The Tao of Risk: Hedging as a Way of Life
The simplest way to characterize what a hedge 'is' is to imagine every action having a binary outcome. One is bad, one is good. Red lines, green lines; uppie, downie. With me so far? Good. A 'hedge' is simply the employment of a strategy to mitigate the effect of your action having the wrong binary outcome. You wanted X, but you got Z! Frowny face. A hedge strategy introduces a third outcome. If you hedged against the possibility of Z happening, then you can wind up with Y instead. Not as good as X, but not as bad as Z. The technical definition I like to give my idiot juniors is as follows:
Utilization of a defensive strategy to mitigate risk, at a fraction of the cost to capital of the risk itself.
Congratulations. You just finished Hedging 101. "But Fuzzy, that's easy! I just sold a naked call against my 95% OTM put! I'm adequately hedged!". Spoiler alert: you're not (although good work on executing a collar, which I describe below). What I'm talking about here is what would be referred to as a 'perfect hedge'; a binary outcome where downside is totally mitigated by a risk management strategy. That's not how it works IRL. Pay attention; this is the tricky part.
You can't take a single position and conclude that you're adequately hedged because risks are fluid, not static. So you need to constantly adjust your position in order to maximize the value of the hedge and insure your position. You also need to consider exposure to more than one category of risk. There are micro (specific exposure) risks, and macro (trend exposure) risks, and both need to factor into the hedge calculus.
That's why, in the real world, the value of hedging depends entirely on the design of the hedging strategy itself. Here, when we say "value" of the hedge, we're not talking about cash money - we're talking about the intrinsic value of the hedge relative to the the risk profile of your underlying exposure. To achieve this, people hedge dynamically. In wallstreetbets terms, this means that as the value of your position changes, you need to change your hedges too. The idea is to efficiently and continuously distribute and rebalance risk across different states and periods, taking value from states in which the marginal cost of the hedge is low and putting it back into states where marginal cost of the hedge is high, until the shadow value of your underlying exposure is equalized across your positions. The punchline, I guess, is that one static position is a hedge in the same way that the finger paintings you make for your wife's boyfriend are art - it's technically correct, but you're only playing yourself by believing it.
Anyway. Obviously doing this as a small potatoes trader is hard but it's worth taking into account. Enough basic shit. So how does this work in markets?
2. A Hedging Taxonomy
The best place to start here is a practical question. What does a business need to hedge against? Think about the specific risk that an individual business faces. These are legion, so I'm just going to list a few of the key ones that apply to most corporates. (1) You have commodity risk for the shit you buy or the shit you use. (2) You have currency risk for the money you borrow. (3) You have rate risk on the debt you carry. (4) You have offtake risk for the shit you sell. Complicated, right? To help address the many and varied ways that shit can go wrong in a sophisticated market, smart operators like yours truly have devised a whole bundle of different instruments which can help you manage the risk. I might write about some of the more complicated ones in a later post if people are interested (CDO/CLOs, strip/stack hedges and bond swaps with option toggles come to mind) but let's stick to the basics for now.
(i) Swaps
A swap is one of the most common forms of hedge instrument, and they're used by pretty much everyone that can afford them. The language is complicated but the concept isn't, so pay attention and you'll be fine. This is the most important part of this section so it'll be the longest one.
Swaps are derivative contracts with two counterparties (before you ask, you can't trade 'em on an exchange - they're OTC instruments only). They're used to exchange one cash flow for another cash flow of equal expected value; doing this allows you to take speculative positions on certain financial prices or to alter the cash flows of existing assets or liabilities within a business. "Wait, Fuzz; slow down! What do you mean sets of cash flows?". Fear not, little autist. Ol' Fuzz has you covered.
The cash flows I'm talking about are referred to in swap-land as 'legs'. One leg is fixed - a set payment that's the same every time it gets paid - and the other is variable - it fluctuates (typically indexed off the price of the underlying risk that you are speculating on / protecting against). You set it up at the start so that they're notionally equal and the two legs net off; so at open, the swap is a zero NPV instrument. Here's where the fun starts. If the price that you based the variable leg of the swap on changes, the value of the swap will shift; the party on the wrong side of the move ponies up via the variable payment. It's a zero sum game.
I'll give you an example using the most vanilla swap around; an interest rate trade. Here's how it works. You borrow money from a bank, and they charge you a rate of interest. You lock the rate up front, because you're smart like that. But then - quelle surprise! - the rate gets better after you borrow. Now you're bagholding to the tune of, I don't know, 5 bps. Doesn't sound like much but on a billion dollar loan that's a lot of money (a classic example of the kind of 'small, deep hole' that's terrible for profits). Now, if you had a swap contract on the rate before you entered the trade, you're set; if the rate goes down, you get a payment under the swap. If it goes up, whatever payment you're making to the bank is netted off by the fact that you're borrowing at a sub-market rate. Win-win! Or, at least, Lose Less / Lose Less. That's the name of the game in hedging.
There are many different kinds of swaps, some of which are pretty exotic; but they're all different variations on the same theme. If your business has exposure to something which fluctuates in price, you trade swaps to hedge against the fluctuation. The valuation of swaps is also super interesting but I guarantee you that 99% of you won't understand it so I'm not going to try and explain it here although I encourage you to google it if you're interested.
Because they're OTC, none of them are filed publicly. Someeeeeetimes you see an ISDA (dsicussed below) but the confirms themselves (the individual swaps) are not filed. You can usually read about the hedging strategy in a 10-K, though. For what it's worth, most modern credit agreements ban speculative hedging. Top tip: This is occasionally something worth checking in credit agreements when you invest in businesses that are debt issuers - being able to do this increases the risk profile significantly and is particularly important in times of economic volatility (ctrl+f "non-speculative" in the credit agreement to be sure).
(ii) Forwards
A forward is a contract made today for the future delivery of an asset at a pre-agreed price. That's it. "But Fuzzy! That sounds just like a futures contract!". I know. Confusing, right? Just like a futures trade, forwards are generally used in commodity or forex land to protect against price fluctuations. The differences between forwards and futures are small but significant. I'm not going to go into super boring detail because I don't think many of you are commodities traders but it is still an important thing to understand even if you're just an RH jockey, so stick with me.
Just like swaps, forwards are OTC contracts - they're not publicly traded. This is distinct from futures, which are traded on exchanges (see The Ballad Of Big Dick Vick for some more color on this). In a forward, no money changes hands until the maturity date of the contract when delivery and receipt are carried out; price and quantity are locked in from day 1. As you now know having read about BDV, futures are marked to market daily, and normally people close them out with synthetic settlement using an inverse position. They're also liquid, and that makes them easier to unwind or close out in case shit goes sideways.
People use forwards when they absolutely have to get rid of the thing they made (or take delivery of the thing they need). If you're a miner, or a farmer, you use this shit to make sure that at the end of the production cycle, you can get rid of the shit you made (and you won't get fucked by someone taking cash settlement over delivery). If you're a buyer, you use them to guarantee that you'll get whatever the shit is that you'll need at a price agreed in advance. Because they're OTC, you can also exactly tailor them to the requirements of your particular circumstances.
These contracts are incredibly byzantine (and there are even crazier synthetic forwards you can see in money markets for the true degenerate fund managers). In my experience, only Texan oilfield magnates, commodities traders, and the weirdo forex crowd fuck with them. I (i) do not own a 10 gallon hat or a novelty size belt buckle (ii) do not wake up in the middle of the night freaking out about the price of pork fat and (iii) love greenbacks too much to care about other countries' monopoly money, so I don't fuck with them.
(iii) Collars
No, not the kind your wife is encouraging you to wear try out to 'spice things up' in the bedroom during quarantine. Collars are actually the hedging strategy most applicable to WSB. Collars deal with options! Hooray!
To execute a basic collar (also called a wrapper by tea-drinking Brits and people from the Antipodes), you buy an out of the money put while simultaneously writing a covered call on the same equity. The put protects your position against price drops and writing the call produces income that offsets the put premium. Doing this limits your tendies (you can only profit up to the strike price of the call) but also writes down your risk. If you screen large volume trades with a VOL/OI of more than 3 or 4x (and they're not bullshit biotech stocks), you can sometimes see these being constructed in real time as hedge funds protect themselves on their shorts.
(3) All About ISDAs, CDS and Synthetic CDOs
You may have heard about the mythical ISDA. Much like an indenture (discussed in my post on $F), it's a magic legal machine that lets you build swaps via trade confirms with a willing counterparty. They are very complicated legal documents and you need to be a true expert to fuck with them. Fortunately, I am, so I do. They're made of two parts; a Master (which is a form agreement that's always the same) and a Schedule (which amends the Master to include your specific terms). They are also the engine behind just about every major credit crunch of the last 10+ years.
First - a brief explainer. An ISDA is a not in and of itself a hedge - it's an umbrella contract that governs the terms of your swaps, which you use to construct your hedge position. You can trade commodities, forex, rates, whatever, all under the same ISDA.
Let me explain. Remember when we talked about swaps? Right. So. You can trade swaps on just about anything. In the late 90s and early 2000s, people had the smart idea of using other people's debt and or credit ratings as the variable leg of swap documentation. These are called credit default swaps. I was actually starting out at a bank during this time and, I gotta tell you, the only thing I can compare people's enthusiasm for this shit to was that moment in your early teens when you discover jerking off. Except, unlike your bathroom bound shame sessions to Mom's Sears catalogue, every single person you know felt that way too; and they're all doing it at once. It was a fiscal circlejerk of epic proportions, and the financial crisis was the inevitable bukkake finish. WSB autism is absolutely no comparison for the enthusiasm people had during this time for lighting each other's money on fire.
Here's how it works. You pick a company. Any company. Maybe even your own! And then you write a swap. In the swap, you define "Credit Event" with respect to that company's debt as the variable leg . And you write in... whatever you want. A ratings downgrade, default under the docs, failure to meet a leverage ratio or FCCR for a certain testing period... whatever. Now, this started out as a hedge position, just like we discussed above. The purest of intentions, of course. But then people realized - if bad shit happens, you make money. And banks... don't like calling in loans or forcing bankruptcies. Can you smell what the moral hazard is cooking?
Enter synthetic CDOs. CDOs are basically pools of asset backed securities that invest in debt (loans or bonds). They've been around for a minute but they got famous in the 2000s because a shitload of them containing subprime mortgage debt went belly up in 2008. This got a lot of publicity because a lot of sad looking rednecks got foreclosed on and were interviewed on CNBC. "OH!", the people cried. "Look at those big bad bankers buying up subprime loans! They caused this!". Wrong answer, America. The debt wasn't the problem. What a lot of people don't realize is that the real meat of the problem was not in regular way CDOs investing in bundles of shit mortgage debts in synthetic CDOs investing in CDS predicated on that debt. They're synthetic because they don't have a stake in the actual underlying debt; just the instruments riding on the coattails. The reason these are so popular (and remain so) is that smart structured attorneys and bankers like your faithful correspondent realized that an even more profitable and efficient way of building high yield products with limited downside was investing in instruments that profit from failure of debt and in instruments that rely on that debt and then hedging that exposure with other CDS instruments in paired trades, and on and on up the chain. The problem with doing this was that everyone wound up exposed to everybody else's books as a result, and when one went tits up, everybody did. Hence, recession, Basel III, etc. Thanks, Obama.
Heavy investment in CDS can also have a warping effect on the price of debt (something else that happened during the pre-financial crisis years and is starting to happen again now). This happens in three different ways. (1) Investors who previously were long on the debt hedge their position by selling CDS protection on the underlying, putting downward pressure on the debt price. (2) Investors who previously shorted the debt switch to buying CDS protection because the relatively illiquid debt (partic. when its a bond) trades at a discount below par compared to the CDS. The resulting reduction in short selling puts upward pressure on the bond price. (3) The delta in price and actual value of the debt tempts some investors to become NBTs (neg basis traders) who long the debt and purchase CDS protection. If traders can't take leverage, nothing happens to the price of the debt. If basis traders can take leverage (which is nearly always the case because they're holding a hedged position), they can push up or depress the debt price, goosing swap premiums etc. Anyway. Enough technical details.
I could keep going. This is a fascinating topic that is very poorly understood and explained, mainly because the people that caused it all still work on the street and use the same tactics today (it's also terribly taught at business schools because none of the teachers were actually around to see how this played out live). But it relates to the topic of today's lesson, so I thought I'd include it here.
Work depending, I'll be back next week with a covenant breakdown. Most upvoted ticker gets the post.
*EDIT 1\* In a total blowout, $PLAY won. So it's D&B time next week. Post will drop Monday at market open.

Do you need a large investment to be successful with pennies?

I'm obviously new here but been trading Forex for about a year so I know the terms and how to read charts.
I've paper traded some to get the hang of how things move but its difficult to really absorb what happens in the losses when you dont actually risk anything.
I've got $200 in some pennies now but it seems like the $6 commission on OTCs eats up most of what I would profit because im not buying 1000's of shares. Thanks for any advice!

ASIC Regulation Thread - Regarding the proposed changes ( Australians effected the most )

I'm hopeless at formatting text, so if you think you can structure this post better take everything i write and put it into an easy to digest way. I'm just going to type out everything i know in text as fast as possible. I'm not a legal expert, I'm not somehow who understands every bit of information in the PDF's below, but i know I'm a retail trader that uses leverage to make profit which is why I'm posting this, in the hope that someone who can run a charge better than me, will.
Some of you are already aware of what might be happening, this is just a post to educate retail traders on changes that might be coming to certain brokers. This effects Australian Customers the most, but also effects those living in other countries that use Australian brokers, such as Pepperstone and others.
Last year in August 2019, ASIC ( Australian Securities and Investments Commission ) was concerned about retail traders going into Forex and Binary options without understanding these instruments properly and started sticking their noses in for tough regulation.
ASIC asked brokers and anyone with interest in the industry to write to them and explain what should and should not change from the changes they proposed, some of the proposed changes are very misguided and come from a lack of understanding exactly how OTC derivatives actually work.
I will provide the link to the paper further down so you can read it yourself and i will provide a link to all the submission made by all parties that sent submissions to ASIC, however the 2 main points of debate are:
1, To reduce the overall leverage available to retail traders to either 20:1 or 30:1. This means people who currently use leverage such as 100:1 to 500:1 and everything in between will be effected the most, even more so are those traders with relatively small accounts, meaning in order to get your foot in the door to trading you will need more capital for it to be viable.
^^ This point above is very important.
2, The removing of Binary options trading, which basically includes products like "Bet if gold will rise to this price in the next 30 seconds" This sort of stuff. So far from all the submissions from brokers and individuals nobody really cares if this changes as far as i know, though if you have concerns about this i would start voicing your disapproval. Though i would not waste your time here, all is pointing to this being eradicated completely with brokers also supporting the changes, I've never used such a product and know very little about them.
^^ This point above isn't very important and will probably be enforced in the future.
Still to this day i see retail traders not understanding leverage, they think of it as "dangerous and scary", it's not, position size is the real danger, not leverage. So ASIC is aiming to limit retail traders access to high leverage, they are claiming it is a way to protect traders who don't really understand what they are getting into by attacking leverage and not the real problem which is position size relative to your capital.
If it was truly about protecting retail traders from blowing up their accounts, they would look for ways to educate traders on "understanding position sizes and why it's important" rather than attacking leverage, but their goal is misguided or has an ulterior motive . I will give you a small example below.
EXAMPLE - We will use 2 demo accounts for demonstration purposes. If you don't understand my example, i suggest you try it for yourself. - Skip if not interested in examples.
Lets say we open 2 demo accounts with $1000 in both, one with 20:1 leverage and one with 500:1 leverage and we open an identical position on both accounts ( say a micro lot '0.01' on EURUSD ). You are safer on the 500:1 account as you don't need to put up as much margin as collateral as you would on the 20:1. If the trade we just opened goes against us and continues against us, the account with 20:1 leverage will run out of free margin a lot faster than the 500:1 account. In this simple example is shows you that leverage is not dangerous but safer and gives you a lot more breathing room. This trade was a small micro lot, so it would take hundreds of pips movements to get margin called and blow up that $1000 on each account. Lets now use a different position size to truly understand why retail traders blow up accounts and is the reason why trading can be dangerous.
This time instead of opening a micro lot of '0.01' on our $1000 dollar demo accounts, lets open a position size much larger, 5 lots. Remember we only have $1000 and we are about to open a position much larger relative to our capital ( which we should never do because we can't afford to do that ) the 20:1 probably wont even let you place that trade if you don't have enough margin as collateral or if you could open the position you would have a very tiny amount of free margin left over, meaning a small pip movement against you will instantly blow up your $1000 account. On the 500:1 account you wouldn't need to put up as much margin as collateral with more free margin if the trade goes bad, but again a small movement could blow up your account. In this example, both accounts were dangerous because the lack of understanding position sizes, opening a position you can't afford to open. This is what the true danger is, not the leverage.
Even in the second example, the higher leverage would "margin call" you out later. So i would go as far to say that lower leverage is more dangerous for you because it margin calls you out faster and just by having a lower leverage doesn't stop you from opening big positions that can blow you up in a 5 pip movement anymore, any leverage size is dangerous if you're opening positions you can't afford to open. This is also taking into consideration that no risk management is being used, with risk management higher leverage is even more powerful.
ASIC believes lowering leverage will stop people opening positions that they can't afford. When the reality is no matter how much capital you have $500, $1000, $5000, $50,000, $500,000, $5,000,000. You don't open position sizes that will blow that capital up completely with small movements. The same thing can happen on a 20:1 or 500:1 account.
Leverage is a tool, use it, if your on a lower leverage already such as 20:1, 30:1 it means your country has been regulated and you already have harder trading conditions. Just remember higher leverage allows you to open larger position sizes in total for the amount of money you own, but the issue is NOT that your using the higher leverage but because you are opening positions you can't afford, for what ever reason that is, the only fix for this is education and will not be fixed by simply lowing leverage, since you can just as easy blow up your account on low leverage just as fast or if not faster.
So what is going on?
There might ( get your tinfoil hats on ) be more that is involved here, deeper than you think, other agendas to try and stop small time retail traders from making money via OTC products, theories such as governments not wanting their citizens to be traders, rather would prefer you to get out there and work a 9 to 5 instead. Effective ways to do this would be making conditions harder with a much larger barrier of entry and the best way to increase the barrier of entry for retail traders is to limit leverage, lower leverage means you need to put up more money, less breathing room for trades, lower potential. They are limiting your upside potential and the downside stays the same, a blown account is a blow account.
Think of leverage as a weapon, a person wielding a butchers knife can probably destroy a person wielding a steak knife, but both knifes can prove fatal. They want to make sure your holding the butter knife then tell you to butcher a cow with it. 30:1 leverage is still workable and can still be profitable, but not as profitable as 500:1 accounts. This is why they are allowing professionals to use high leverage, this gives them another edge over successful retail traders who will still be trying to butcher a cow with a butter knife, while they are slaying limbs off the cow with machetes.
It's a way to hamstring you and keep you away rather than trying to "protect" you. The real danger is not leverage, they are barking up the wrong tree, how convenient to be barking up the very tree most retail traders don't fully understand ( leverage) , pass legislation to make trading conditions harder and at the same time push the narrative that trading is dangerous by making it even harder. A full circle strategy to make your trading conditions worse, so you don't succeed.
Listen carefully especially if you trade with any of the brokers that have provided their submissions to ASIC. Brokers want to seem like they are on your side and so far some of the submissions ( i haven't read them all ) have brokers willing to drop their leverage down to 30:1 because they know by dropping the leverage down it will start margin calling out their clients at a much faster rate, causing more blown up accounts / abandoned accounts with residual margin called funds, but they also know that if they make trading environments too hard less people will trade or even worse move their funds elsewhere offshore to unregulated brokers that offer higher leverage.
Right now it's all just a proposal, but as governments expand and continue to gain more control over it's citizens, it's just a matter of time till it's law, it's up to you to be vocal about it, let your broker know that if they drop their leverage, you're out, force them to fight for you.
If you have any more information related to this, or have anything to add, post below. I'm not an expert at this technical law talk, i know that i do well with 500:1 leverage and turn profits with it, it would be harder for me to do on a lower leverage, this is the reason for my post.

API Only Broker

edit to add: Thanks /joeledg for the suggestion on LightSpeed, I looked into them more deeply and have engaged with Robert Morse over on Elite Trader. They do tick off all the boxes (except the last, but that's really last on my list and not important) below. Please ignore the total misinformation (what really is the point of that??) you'll find in the responses below.
https://www.lightspeed.com/automated-trading/
I ignored them before because of lack of API focus, but just found they support colo/cross connect as well as everything else on the list. So that is pretty savvy.
It's possible the retail API trader is too small of a market to focus on exclusively, but that doesn't stop with providing them good service anyways. I still think there's an opportunity there with the right prioritization and engineering team, but that's a different discussion.

Forex là gì? Thị trường Forex giao dịch như thế nào?

26 Tháng Ba, 2020 Bởi Nguyễn Duy Kiệt
Forex đối với những ai làm trong lĩnh vực chứng khoán và tiền tệ sẽ không còn quá xa lạ. Tuy nhiên để thực sự hiểu sâu và hiểu đúng về quy cách của forex thì không phải ai cũng biết.
Bài viết dưới đây của Kiệt hôm nay sẽ giúp bạn hiểu được forex là gì? và những thông tin cần biết về forex. Hy vọng sẽ cung cấp được những thông tin bổ ích cho bạn.

Forex là gì?

Nội dung bài viết
Forex là từ được viết tắt Foreign Exchange. Nó có nghĩa tức là trao đổi tiền tệ quốc tế. Hay nói cách khác Forex là thị trường ngoại hối nơi mà các hoạt động trao đổi, buôn bán tiền tệ đủ loại trên thế giới diễn ra nhờ những hệ thống quản lý trung gian của các ngân hàng cũng như những địa chỉ quản lý riêng như các tổ chức tín dụng.
📷Forex là gì?
Đối với một số người khi nghe thấy định nghĩa Forex sẽ thấy sự xa lạ. Thường người ta sẽ nghĩ rằng chỉ có những thời điểm bản thân đi du lịch nước ngoài thì mới có cơ hội giao dịch Forex. Điều đó có thể là đúng đắn tuy nhiên chưa hề đủ.
Giao dịch ngoại hối Forex là một hoạt động rất thường nhật. Và tất cả chúng ta đều đang tham gia công việc này một cách gián tiếp.
Bạn có thể tham khảo một ví dụ cơ bản như thế này để hiểu rõ hơn đó là: Những món hàng được nhập khẩu từ các quốc gia khác trên thế giới được chuyển giao nhiều đến nước mình.
Khi mua hàng tuy bạn mua gián tiếp nhưng thực chất những người giao dịch đầu tiên sẽ sử dụng thị trường Forex để trao đổi. Đó được gọi là thị trường giao dịch trực tiếp đầu tiên với những hệ thống tiền tệ quốc tế. Bạn mua hàng sẽ là thế hệ giao dịch đợt gián tiếp.
Một trường hợp giao dịch Forex nữa đó chính là khi bạn có những chuyến du lịch hay là di chuyển sang nước ngoài.
Bất cứ một hình thức giao dịch nào với tiền tệ quốc tế cũng được xem là một hình thức giao dịch Forex mà có thể chính bạn đang trải qua. Đó là những ví dụ cụ thể và đơn giản nhất của việc trao đổi Forex.

Tìm hiểu thị trường Forex giao dịch gì?

Vậy bạn có biết thị trường forex giao dịch những gì không? Hiện nay forex đang cung cấp tổng cộng cho 600 trader trong đó có tiền điện tử, chứng khoán, hàng hóa,…. Và chính mỗi trader đều sử dụng tiền tệ để trao đổi forex. Mỗi một sản phẩm đều được trao đổi theo hình thức cặp đôi và có mang tên của 1 loại tiền tệ cơ bản nhất.
📷Thị trường forex giao dịch những gì?
Sở dĩ được hiểu và quy định như vậy, là bởi trader hiện nay luôn giao dịch dựa trên các quy định của những loại hợp đồng chênh lệch CFD.
Chính vì vậy mà bạn không cần phải sở hữu chúng, chỉ cần dựa trên sự biến động về giá cả tiền tệ bạn cũng có thể kiếm lời được từ sàn giao dịch Forex rồi.

Quy mô thị trường Forex

Vậy còn quy mô của Forex như thế nào? Quy mô của Forex được biết hoạt động liên tục 24/5 từ thứ 2 đến thứ 6. Thị trường Forex không giống như những thị trường truyền thống.
Nó không có trung tâm giao dịch cụ thể. Nó chỉ hoạt động giao dịch theo hình thức thông qua hoạt động của các thiết bị đầu cuối. Vì vậy chỉ cần thiết bị của bạn có kết nối internet thì bạn hoàn toàn có thể kết nối và giao dịch Forex được.
📷Quy mô của thị trường forex
Theo thống kê trong vòng 10 năm khối lượng giao dịch forex tăng lên gấp 10 lần. Điều này diễn ra chính bởi sự phát triển của internet cũng như sự phát triển của hệ thống thanh toán ngân hàng, các trung tâm điều khiển,…. Và sự ảnh hưởng lớn nhất đến phạm vi của forex đó chính là sự phát triển của những nhà đầu tư nhỏ lẻ.
Có thể cảm nhận được rằng forex là thị trường tiềm năng mà bạn không nên bỏ qua. Với sự phát triển như hiện nay, bạn hoàn toàn có thẻ không dừng lại ở những mức lãi suất thấp mà sẽ ngày càng phát triển nguồn vốn cao hơn.
Forex không dừng lại ở quy mô nhỏ lẻ mà có khả năng phát triển đến những giao dịch với khối lượng khổng lồ. Và đương nhiên rằng cũng sẽ có những thua lỗ nhất định nhưng sự vững chắc vị trí đứng của nó là rất cao.

Những ai đang tham gia giao dịch forex?

Bạn có biết những ai đang giao dịch forex? Chính bạn cũng đang giao dịch đấy nhé! Forex phân tầng theo những cấp độ hoàn toàn khác nhau.
Và cấp độ lớn nhất đó là các cấp giá thuộc hạng tier 1 đó là các ngân hàng thương mại, các ngân hàng đầu tư chiếm mức giá lên đến khoảng 60% tham gia giao dịch trong thị trường ngoại hối.
📷Những ai đang tham gia giao dịch forex
Tiếp đến cấp bậc thứ 2 là khách hàng của những ngân hàng này. Họ có nguồn vốn nhỏ hơn. Tiếp đến là các tập đoàn lớn đa quốc gia hay những quỹ phòng hộ,… và các forex tạo dựng thị trường nhỏ lẻ.
Đó là những thành phần tham gia thị trường ngoại hối forex nhỏ và lớn khác nhau. Chính việc mua bán hằng ngày của bạn cũng là một hình thức tham gia vào thị trường ngoại hối.

Những nhà cung cấp nguồn vốn lớn cho thị trường forex

Tiếp theo chúng ta cùng tìm hiểu về những nhà cung cấp nguồn vốn lớn hiện nay. Chính sự phân tầng của forex vì thế mà phát sinh ra một số chênh lệch cũng như phí hoa hồng. Không kể đến còn một khoản phát sinh trong quá trình giao động lên xuống của forex.

Ngân hàng trung ương

Đầu tiên là ngân hàng trung ương. Ngân hàng trung ương có một vai trò vô cùng quan trọng trong việc chi phối thị trường. Ngân hàng trung ương tạo dựng ra một nguồn vốn lớn và làm nên sự ổn định cho nền kinh tế mỗi quốc gia và trên thế giới.
📷Những nhà cung cấp nguồn vốn cho thị trường forex
Ngân hàng trung ương tham gia vào thị trường ngoại hối forex. Nó có vai trò cân bằng lại lực lượng tham gia cũng như có vai trò quản lý tiền tệ của chính phủ một cách dễ dàng hơn rất nhiều.
Ngân hàng trung ương không can thiệp nhiều vào các lực lượng tham gia forex cũng như những kế hoạch cấp vốn với thời gian ngắn hạn.
Ngân hàng trung ương giúp chính phủ của các quốc gia có một nguồn vốn dự trữ an toàn để đáp ứng được nhu cầu trao đổi tiền tệ trong nước.

Quỹ tiền tệ quốc tế

Tiếp đến là quỹ tiền tệ quốc tế. Đây là những ngân hàng thuộc về nền kinh tế đang phát triển. Và mục đích lớn nhất của quỹ tiền tệ quốc tế chính là tài trợ cho những dự án xã hội cũng như là giúp vào việc phát triển các cơ sở hạ tầng.
Đồng thời cũng có vai trò giúp kích thích cho sự phát triển của nền kinh tế đối với một số những lĩnh vực nhất định.

Công ty thương mại

Tiếp đến đó là công ty thương mại. Đây là một trong những thành phần quan trọng đối với việc điều hành những hoạt động trên thị trường forex.
So sánh với những công ty dịch vụ thương mại hay là các dịch vụ thanh toán thì công ty thương mại này chiếm một số lượng ít hơn hẳn.
Tuy nhiên nó có tác động lớn đối với dòng chảy thương mại cũng như những hệ thống các nguồn vốn trên thị trường forex.
Chính vì thế mà một số công ty đa quốc gia có thể đem đến sự tác động lớn đến việc tăng giảm cũng như lợi nhuận trong quá trình tiền tệ quốc tế. Đó là các nhà cung cấp nguồn vốn và có tác động trực tiếp đến hoạt động của thị trường ngoại hối.
Trên đây là toàn bộ những thông tin chi tiết nhất về forex là gì, hoạt động và quy mô của nó ra sao. Đồng thời cũng là các thông tin về nhà cung cấp vốn chính xác mà Kiệt chia sẻ vô cùng chi tiết.

Canada’s Binary Options Problem

Canada’s recurring binary options problem

Approximately seven months ago the Canadian financial regulatory authorities enacted a ban on brokers offering binary options to all retail traders. Unfortunately, these actions seemed to have had little to no results on certain brokers that have implemented new tactics in order to gather money from unsuspecting investors.
On April 12th the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada, more commonly referred to the IIROC cautioned Canadian traders not to be duped by fraudulent online trading brokers attempting to unlawfully sell binary options under the pretense of legitimate brokers regulated by the IIROC.

Binary options scams still exist

Recently the ombudsman has been made aware of at least two brokers that misleadingly state that they are regulated by IIROC:
Binary options cannot be offered or sold to retail traders in Canada and the regulator has issued plenty of warnings, imploring Canadian citizens not to invest in these fraudulent companies. Under no circumstances are IIROC regulated entities authorized to sell binary options to retail investors in Canada.
This troubling tendency is bringing up concerns about how effective a blanket ban on offering of such toxic products as binaries to stop scams. ESMA, the European Securities and Markets Authority has recently put in rules that prohibit regulated brokers from offering binary options to retail investors. However, these recent developments in Canada call into question on whether a ban in Europe would, in fact, produce the wanted effect.

Opposition to the binary options ban

It should be noted that when the Canadian regulatory authorities first suggested to ban binary options, the proposal encountered stern opposition. The Investment Industry Association of Canada (IIAC), which represents 130 Dealer Member firms regulated by IIROC, asserted that the injunction should only include binary options scams offered by unregulated binary options brokers. The IIAC further maintained that its members should be allowed to offer binary options to retail traders.
Interestingly enough there have been proposals to allow trading binary options on an exchange, as this is allowed in the United States. However, opposed to that line of thinking are organizations such as the Canadian Advocacy Council for Canadian CFA Institute Societies (CAC), which heavily supported the binary options ban proposal and even went beyond it by questioning the status of OTC (Over the Counter) or more commonly known as retail Forex trading. The council questioned whether the sale of similar financial instruments to retail investors should additionally be restricted.

Best Trading App for Canadians?

Hello! First just a quick thanks to this subreddit. Really brought my confidence up after I failed with forex.
Just wondering what is the best trading app for Canadians?
I am currently using Wealthsimple. I like the ease of use and interface. However no OTC stocks and no AH or premarket trading or graphs lol.
Tried TD as I bank with them and I really don’t like the interface. It’s harder to use than wealth simple. Also $10 brokerage fee on my first trade ???
Wish we had robin hood here. Any other ideas ?!
Thanks!

In addition, in Forex, with a little bit of money, you are able to control bigger market positions using the leverage or margin trading. Effect of 1:100 is common in the Fore marketplace. It permits you to control numbers 100 times bigger than your capital, whilst leverage of 1:1000 and 1:500 are available with a few businesses that are offshore. The Forex market can be traded anyplace and everywhere. As long as you have access to web and a pc, you have the ability to trade the Forex market. An important issue to consider before leaping to trading currencies is it is worth practicing with"paper money", or"fake money", online demo account. Most foreign exchange agents have demo accounts where you are able to download their trading system and training in real-time with real market information but with"virtual currency". While profitable demonstration trading cannot guarantee your success with real money. best forex brokers

There are numerous advantages of the Forex market over several kinds of financial trading. There is 1 type that springs to mind, when speaking about different investments that are accessible to everyone. Even the Forex or foreign exchange market has many advantages over other types of trading. Because it is an OTC (over-the-counter) market, the Forex market is open 24 hours daily, unlike the regular stock or commodity markets. Most investments require a substantial quantity of money until you're able to make the most of this investment opportunity. Everyone can enter the marketplace with just as little as 1 to trade a"micro account", which enables you to open positions of 1,000 units. One lot of 1,000 units of currency is equivalent to 1 contract from account that is micro. Each"pip" or"tick" (lowest currency rate movement down or up ) is worth $0.10 profit or decrease, depending on wheather you are going with the Marketplace or against it Forex is among the most liquid markets. best forex brokers in uk
When trading currencies on the spot Forex market you've got complete control of your capital, which means that you can purchase and sell your positions anytime throughout market stage. This is a definite benefit because, if you will need to utilize your account cash, it may be obtained without additional commission or waiting intervals. Many different sorts of investments need holding up your money . Forex dealers may be profitable in bullish or bearish market conditions. Stock market traders want stock prices to grow to be able to take a profit, since short-selling is an issue to limits in stock trades. Forex dealers may produce a profit . Forex Currency trading is considered risky but with a trading platform that was fantastic to very decent money management skills, and a certain level of self-discipline, the risks of Forex trading can be lessened. brokers reviews

FOREX là gì? Tại sao phải đầu tư FOREX ngay hôm nay?

Xin chào các bạn! Chào mừng các bạn đang đến với web Evony Investment và hôm nay tôi muốn giới thiệu đến các bạn một lĩnh vực đầu tư khá là “HOT” trong thời gian gần đây. Đó là đầu tư Forex hay giao dịch ngoại hối!
Có khá là nhiều lĩnh vực đầu tư đang phổ biến hiện nay như: BĐS, chứng khoán, vàng, bảo hiểm, ngoại hối, và cả lĩnh vực Bitcoin đang rộ lên thời gian gần đây. Nhưng ở đây tôi không muốn phân tích sâu về các lĩnh vực ấy, tôi chỉ muốn nói đến lĩnh vực FOREX, trao đổi ngoại hối.
Trước khi tìm hiểu FOREX là gì? Bạn hãy thử hình dung rằng bạn đang dự định đi du lịch sang Nhật Bản. Khi sang Nhật Bản, bạn sẽ chi tiêu, mua sắm bằng loại tiền nào? Chắc là bạn phải sử dụng đồng Yên rồi. Như vậy là việc bạn cần phải làm trước khi đi du lịch là phải mua đồng Yên tại ngân hàng của Việt Nam hay mua tại các quầy thu đổi ngoại tệ tại sân bay…Như vậy, bạn đang thực hiện các hoạt động giao dịch FOREX . Ngày nay, với sự hỗ trợ mạnh mẽ của của internet nên việc mua bán FOREX cũng đc diễn ra trực tuyến và nhanh chóng.
Forex được viết tắt của từ Foreign Exchange hay FX. Thị trường FOREX là nơi diễn ra các hoạt động giao dịch mua bán các loại tiền tệ của các quốc gia thông qua hệ thống liên ngân hàng với tỷ giá thả nổi.
Thị trường FOREX được ví như là thị trường OTC, nghĩa là không có trung tâm giao dịch cụ thể mà nó được kết nối giữa các ngân hàng , nhà môi giới, nhà đầu tư với nhau thông qua hệ thống máy tính, điện thoại, Fax,…
Bạn sẽ đặt câu hỏi vì sao thị trường FOREX không có trung tâm giao dịch cụ thể. Đó là vì FOREX là thị trường có lượng lưu thông tiền tệ lên đến hàng nghìn tỉ đô la nên không có 1 công ty hay tổ chức nào có khả năng thao túng thị trường này cả.
Tôi sẽ giải thích cho các bạn hiểu bằng một câu ngắn gọn về thị trường này: “FOREX là hoạt động mua bán trao đổi ngoại tệ và ăn lời bằng sự chênh lệch tỷ giá”. Dễ hiểu phải không nào?
Bây giờ tôi xin được đưa ra các lý do để bạn nên đầu tư FOREX ngay!
Chúng ta sẽ cùng tìm hiểu về cách đầu tư FOREX sao cho đạt hiệu quả
Bạn biết đấy, với bất kì một lĩnh vực đầu tư nào thì bạn đều phải có 1 số kiến thức nhất định trong lĩnh vực đó, FOREX cũng vậy. Nếu không muốn bị xơi ngon hay out ngay trong 1 thời gian ngắn bắt đầu với thị trường này thì bạn bắt buộc phải có một số kiến thức cơ bản. Thế là bạn bắt đầu cắm đầu vào máy tính, tìm hiểu thông tin, đọc các tin tức, lọc thông tin với một mớ các trang tạp chí, rồi bắt đầu học về mô hình nến, nghiên cứu cách thức giá nó đi lên hay giá giảm. Rồi bắt đầu với việc giao dịch thật, bạn quay cuồng với những con số nhảy trên màn hình đến quên ăn mất ngủ, bạn đau tim với những cú lộn ngược giá, vui sướng với khoảnh khắc thắng tiền, căng thẳng với những lúc âm nặng, rồi gồng đợi 1 giờ đẹp trời các lệnh bạn sẽ dương, rồi sau đó thế nào tôi không nói sâu thêm nhé …..Bạn thấy đấy, với guồng thời gian quay cuồng như vậy thì liệu rằng bạn có còn thời gian để làm việc gì khác không?NO,NO tôi chắc rằng bạn sẽ chẳng còn tâm trí nào để nghĩ đến bản thân nữa….Vậy thì hướng giải quyết ở đây là gì? Liệu rằng có cách nào để đầu tư sinh lãi mà lại có tg dành cho bản thân không? Câu trả lời ở đây là CÓ.
Trước hết bạn hãy tìm hiểu một số thông tin cơ bản nhất về thị trường FOREX, lựa chọn một số sàn giao dịch uy tín, quan trọng là uy tín và tính thanh khoản cao nhé. Tìm hiểu một nguồn kiến thức nhất định về giao dịch FOREX, nếu có điều kiện hãy tìm cho mình một người thầy thật tốt trong thị trường này, đừng dung nạp 1 lúc quá nhiều nguồn kiến thức từ sự truyền đạt của nhiều người, nó sẽ làm cho bạn loạn lên đấy, đừng làm phức tạp quá vấn đề. Mọi thứ hãy để nó đơn giản nhất có thể. “Muốn thành công cần phải có một người thầy giỏi”. Hoặc bạn có thể truy cập vào trang web EvonyInvestment.com để xem các bài viết kiến thức về Forex!
Sau khi tiếp nhận được một nguồn kiến thức nhất định thì hãy mở và giao dịch với một tài khoản Demo. Với tài khoản Demo bạn có thể tiến hành một số giao dịch để có thể làm quen dần với phần mềm giao dịch, cách thức giao dịch, cùng với việc cải thiện kinh nghiệm, đưa ra chiến lược phù hợp với khả năng và mong muốn của mình.
Khi thực sự có được mức độ tự tin cao vào kiến thức, kinh nghiệm và các kĩ năng của bản thân thì việc lập tài khoản thật, tiến hành các giao dịch bằng tiền thật nên được thực hiện sớm để thu được lợi nhuận như mong muốn. Hãy bắt đầu với một tài khoản giao dịch nhỏ, có những trải nghiệm thực tế trước khi đưa ra quyết định mở rộng tài khoản.
Đảm bảo chỉ khi nào có đủ khả năng, đủ hiểu biết và những trải nghiệm thực tế, biết mình nên làm thế nào là đúng đắn và hợp lý mới chính thức thực hiện các giao dịch FOREX bằng tài khoản thực với nguồn vốn lớn. Sự cẩn trọng và chắc chắn giúp đảm bảo đem lại hiệu quả giao dịch lý tưởng, mang lại thành công cho mỗi quyết định đầu tư.
Bây giờ thì bạn đã phần nào yên tâm về thị trường này chưa?
Khi mọi thứ đã đi vào sự kiểm soát của bạn, các lệnh giao dịch đã được tính toán kĩ càng về mức rủi ro và lợi nhuận đạt được thì việc của bạn chỉ là đặt lệnh và gấp máy tính lại làm việc khác thôi….Tôi chắc rằng khi bạn có một nguồn kiến thức chuyên sâu về thị trường này, không còn lăn tăn về sự thay đổi của giá cả thì cũng là lúc bạn có thêm nhiều thời gian cho việc tìm một người bạn đời lí tưởng , quan trọng hơn với khoản lợi nhuận thu được từ FOREX có thể giúp bạn chăm sóc tốt hơn cho gia đình mình!
Hi vọng rằng qua bài viết này thì bạn đã có được một cái nhìn tổng quan về thị trường FOREX, tìm được cho mình một bước đi mới. Nhấc chân lên và đi tìm cho mình một nguồn thu nhập mới nào!

Kraken / Etana Custody when you sign up - jobs, salaries, previous employers, income sources, wealth, etc.

Anyone considering Kraken as a crypto exchange, you'll want to read this. The following post also an excellent read on why you should never use Etana!
https://np.reddit.com/KrakenSupport/comments/gwy76y/etana_custody_really_cannot_continue/
Kraken's custody partner Etana (used for fiat deposits) is the most invasive KYC I've ever seen for a crypto exchange. I don't mind basic KYC but this is too far. All this, so I can make a fucking fiat deposit. I was so fed up with Etana and their bullshit, I decided not to use Kraken.

What's the most liquid way for a US person to trade Deutsche Lufthansa AG?

Edit: I've answered my own question! Trading the F shares on the foreign local market should have nearly the same liquidity as trading the foreign shares themselves. I imagine the operations vary by B/D, but sounds like DLAKF is the way to go. Using Interactive Brokers might work as well to trade the actual shares.

I noticed this while trading today and now I've gone down the rabbit hole. I'm (an American) trying to buy shares of Deutsche Lufthansa AG which trades on its home exchange in Frankfurt as LHA. It looks like there are a few ways to accomplish this:
  1. Buy the Sponsored ADR, this is ticker DLAKY
  2. Buy the ADS, this is ticker DLAKF
As far as liquidity goes: LHA > DLAKY > DLAKF
What is the more liquid route? Buying the ADR? Or buying the ADS but instructing my trader to work it on the local exchange (if this is the case, does it become as liquid as LHA?)?
Since currency conversion might contribute to my liquidity, can I get better liquidity by trading directly in Euros held in a forex account (and can therefore settle in Euros)? Furthermore, if I'm now using Euros can I trade LHA directly since the ADS would have only applied to USD?
TL;DR: what's the most liquid way for a US person to trade Deutsche Lufthansa AG? I do not want to trade OTC. I would like to trade on the local market (Frankfurt). DLAKF (the ADS) is how I would trade on the local market but it seems significantly less liquid than LHA. Is there a better way to trade LHA or should I simply buy DLAKY (the ADR)? If I buy DLAKY, is that OTC or on an exchange given that it's sponsored?

Arbitrage, HFT, Quant and Other Automatic Trading Strategies in FX | Finance Magnates

fintech #trading #algotrading #quantitative #quant

Challenges when implementing quant strategies in FX Lack of data availability in foreign exchange trading, when compared to equities, is one of the major obstacles in implementing quant strategies in FX. Since the Forex market is regarded as an over-the-counter (OTC) market and does not transact on a centralized exchange, there is little uniform data available. The FX ECNs only publish approximately 15% of their data while the rest of the market trades “in the dark”.
