Why not switch to Futures or CFDs ? Obviously BO days are most probably counted in the regulated sphere anyways...

That what I'm doing, but high accuracy doesn't mean high returns on futures/cfd.

I said banning because I was trading with €1500 size, So for me €50 is like a ban. Whatever I'll not trade anymore with them.

 

I didn't take more than 1 trade per option, often on different pairs, but not on the same.

 

I think they limit me just because I'm winning with constancy since several months.

i wonder for what reason cmc  and ig ban you, i think they have max.trading size 20k $ so trades for 1500$ should be o.k

IG closed Sprint Markets for retails clients - regards to ESMA -, you now need to be professional. And they often limit quantity to around 200.

Same for CMC (soon), and their lagged prices is a killer.

So again, no ban. They simply no longer have your preferred time frames available. And since you said that you only open one trade at a time, why should it bother you that you can only open up to 338 contracts in the same direction every 30 seconds, as in your example? Even if that means that the whole pool of traders can only open that many contracts in the same direction every 30 seconds, then that is simply the nature of BO, always has been, and occasionally that means that some traders cannot get a spot to enter a trade when all spots are already taken.

Businesses evolve. You either evolve with it and adapt your strat to the time frames and conditions they offer or you can no longer use them. You are fighting something you have no control over. That's a useless fight. Best find a way to keep trading or else you will eliminate yourself from the market. You, not them. That is what everybody is facing now and it sucks for everybody.

Going back to the original issue with HighLow, too many conflicting statements here for me. The only one that corresponds with another comment on another HighLow thread is that HL appears to limit some traders to 50 Euros per trade. But there is no ban and funds are paid. That is the bottom line. And I think the most important issue for new traders considering HL as a broker.

It is a ban from ESMA: I can't access sprint market anymore. Like it was on US, Canada etc.

 

About HL:

Basically with €50 limit in an offshore broker who let you 1 month without any news blocking your money, this is not proper condition to trade.

They accused me from all cheating stuff, without any proof (the reason they take so long time?). That is not a proper way to act for a "regulated" broker. How could I pay taxes on gain if the gain is blocked? That was a crappy situation.

 

I see HighLow as "selecting clients broker", not scam broker. That's just like "we banned Federer from Masters and Grand Slam (because we suspect him to manipulate the trajectory of the tennis ball) and let him play only amateurs tournaments".

Not a total ban, it's true. But it is a fair acting?

Fraud and Fair are very different things. I am not arguing that it doesn't suck. I wouldn't be happy either. I am arguing that definitions matter and HighLow has NOT banned you or refused to transfer funds to you.

What I don't understand about many of the online complaints about brokers is that very little conversation actually takes place with the broker. If this happened to me I would wait out the result and then thank them. Yes, thank them. I would also ask if this limit was permanent and how I can redeem myself and that I would want to because they have been good to me so far and because of that I would like to keep working with them. Then I would keep trading with them so that regardless of the answer perhaps the limit can be lifted again after some time has passed and additional follow up inquires. Yes, regardless of their answer I would inquire again. Bottom line is, so far they have been good to you. Fair is what you focus on. Without brokers there'd be no place to trade at all.

ESMA has not issued that ban yet, if it will ever come. Still plenty of brokers that offer fast expiries now, ie Etx or binary.com. But you seem to have problems with them too, as you mentioned. Never mind that they affect only Europe. There is more world out there beyond Europe.

Start to adapt your strat. If higher expiries are coming then now is the time to prepare. When you can transfer your strat to higher expiries that will make it easier to adapt to forex as well. I already started to do that some time ago. It's not easy, because the expiry you are used to is your comfort zone and it feels too darn good there!! Only those who adapt survive. Here is look into the future - better get as much profit under your belt as you can now, because when AI becomes more mainstream this game will change again and significantly and most will be pushed out because their puny-human non-AI single-computer-aided strats can no longer compete against the power and speed of AI. Fair will become even less relative then. Everyone always looks for their edge.

They have actually refused to transfer funds during 1 month. That make a HUGE difference.

I'm not complaining about end of BO or not, I was first complaining about HighLow, and I thought my experience could help some traders who want to trade big amounts. If you (reader) are not afraid of my case, it's ok. It's just a review.

The rest of conversation was just an answer about alternative, which in my case don't exist for now.

There was no refusal. Your account was under investigation. What they did was within their right and what YOU agreed to when you accepted their terms of service when you signed up with them. Your average bank will do that too, especially if they feel a need to investigate.

 

And you are helping by alerting traders that some trading activities rubs HighLow the wrong way and the result can be that a limit is imposed.

 

The only reason (you believe) an alternative doesn't exist for you is because you want the world to bend to your wishes and while that worked for a while right now you refuse to adapt to a changing world that no longer does that. Seriously, it is difficult to feel sympathy for someone who balks at the opportunity to still be able to make at least grand a day in a couple of hours with HighLow while he figures out how to go back to the speed previously enjoyed. If it worked before it will work again, after some tweaking. Gosh, I am sure many people would love to have your sort of problem - a successful strat but you can't trade at high enough amounts. Sit down and fix your damn problem and adapt your way of trading to a way that will not raise any red flags and get you to your desired profit levels. First world problems! Seriously. No broker at fault here.

#regulationfails :)
It is not because you agree on something by using the service that is it fair practice though...
I don’t know in your area but in mine if I traded stuff that is exchanged and under my local reg, I would not be limited like that...
It’s like you buy some stocks and upon reselling them the broker would apply some limit coz you are not supposed to get away with some gains and as such it’s suspect. No in that kind of world the broker doesn’t give a fart you profit or not since they profit in any cases.
Taking a forum break. Enjoy the flame wars, the trolling, the hate & the boasting.

Don't know (and I don't care) why you defend them. Like I said it was just a review. Technically their T&C allow them to do whatever they want on your account. I agreed them because of good reviews, and because I had never saw a situation like mine. In other case I would never have done that.

 

No broker at fault here but account stuck with that with no answer...

By the way my average bank is far to having the right to do that...

I don't defend them. I comment on misleading statements. When an account is suspended because of investigation, of course withdrawals are not possible until the investigation is concluded and suspension lifted. Account, including option to withdraw funds was re-instated. Those are the plain facts with emotions and personal needs cut out.

Now, the difference between you and I is that I see a problem, I analyze it and try to find a solution. There is really no point in lamenting over their rules. Broker rules are part of mastering the trade. What would be really interesting would be to see trading histories of the people affected by this, and no, you are not the only one
http://www.binaryopt...293-highlownet/
however, considering the amount of traders they have there also isn't a lot of people affected like that. Really nothing else that can be found about this online. If it was an alarming issue with them, the web would be ringing with similar stories. So what is it that the few of you are doing that causes this? That would be far more interesting to discuss.

Whatever you did, it caused it. Whether intentional or not. Nothing to add.

 

And instead of playing the victim you could look at their TOS again and consider
19. DISPUTES
19.2 Complaints (which do not include disputed details)
must be referred to us in accordance with the
procedures set out in our FSG from time to time.
Unresolved complaints will be referred to the Financial
Ombudsman Service or an external dispute resolution
scheme of which we are a participant.

And actually contact the Financial Ombudsman Service of Australia yourself to inquire if it is admissible business practice that a service such as HighLow limit certain trader activities, especially since an internal investigation by HL themselves concluded that a ban was not warranted, so what warrants a trading limit? Is that perhaps discriminatory? Throw a few trigger words at them and they will need to respond.

That takes effort though and requires you to be proactive. Easier to play the victim card and do nothing instead.

Stop with that "playing the victim". I said it is just a review. I only said the true and I have nothing to hide.

What do you know about what I plan to do?

Yes I'll contact regulation and all linked autorities about my case. Just wainting to get all my fund back before.

I'm not waiting for you to help me. (fortunately)
