ESMA REGULATIONS

The European Security and Markets Authority (ESMA) is an independent European Union authority,
founded in 2011. It has full accountability towards the European Parliament.

ESMA aims to protect investors and promote market order and stability by four activities:

  • Assessing risk to investors and market
    stability
  • Providing a single rulebook for all EU financial markets
  • Supervisory convergence
  • Supervising certain financial entities

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ESMA REGULATIONS?

One example of investor protection is Negative Balance Protection
making sure that trading partners (such as GKFX) are required to
bring back negative balance of clients back to zero.

EU financial authority also enforces stop-out levels of 50% as well as
restrictions on leverage rates.
