Dear Traders,

We would like to remind you that effective from 29 July 2018, DF Markets will start implementing the European Securities and Markets Authority’s (ESMA) restrictions related to spread betting and contracts for difference (CFD) trading, which aim to provide greater protection to Retail Clients.

You can find detailed information about the changes here (concerning Spread Betting accounts) and here (concerning CFD trading accounts).

Important: Please note that the new rules already apply to Demo accounts.

Live account holders may use a Demo account to test the new trading environment in advance before the changes for Live accounts are introduced on Sunday, 29 July at 22:00 UK Time.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any questions about the new ESMA regulations.

Kind regards,

DF Markets
