Cowabunga System Daily Update: Thursday, 02/25/10

The CFTC may be changing the rules for retail traders in the US. This affects many of us in a negative way and we need your help getting our voices heard.

I can not find better words to describe my position on all this than those from Andrei Pehar, Chief Currency Strategist at fxKnight.com.  

Andrei says: "I am not opposed to regulation nor regulatory agencies. But that regulation needs to be fair, transparent, and open to public input. Otherwise it becomes corrupt and self-serving. Sure high leverage can get you into trouble if used thoughtlessly. Sure hedging when not done properly turns one loss into two. But I believe the cure is EDUCATION, not restricting what people can and cannot do with their investment decisions. Guide, don’t dominate – government was invented to protect people and their property, not to limit their potential.

We at BabyPips.com disagree with the CFTC proposal.

If you disagree as well, you may submit your comments to secretary@cftc.gov.  

Include “Regulation of Retail Forex” in the subject line of the message and the identification number RIN 3038-AC61 in the body of the message. Please, help us to spread the word!

I think this is a very important matter that affects us all, and we should try our hardest to ensure that things will be done for the best of the trading community.
