Good afternoon all,

I would like to draw your attention to an article on the matter; https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-12-18/stock-derivative-brokers-plunge-as-europe-eyes-cfd-crackdown

It has indeed affected share prices of IG Group (LON:IGG), CMC Markets (LON:CMCX), Plus500 (LON:PLUS) and similar companies (drops in the range 8-12% at time of writing), although not as much as I would have expected.

Do you feel the changes are fully priced in, or is a greater drop in share price to come if these proposals become law? Do you believe that some brokers are more at risk than others (perhaps more reliant on high leverage)?

I think that the discussion about gambling and ethics has been done, so perhaps we do not need to revisit that in this thread.
