Japan to impose new rules on forex margin trading – Nikkei
Changes intended to protect investors and limit scope for speculation:
- Firms required to settle trade even when rate movement favors trader
- Trading in binary options to be restricted
- Strengthened oversight of companies with automated trading systems
The headline sounded spooky but I don’t see anything here that would make much of a difference to anyone who isn’t directly related to these points. I doubt it changes anything in USD/JPY.
