Do you live in South Africa? Then please go to HotForex ZA (South Africa) main introduction page.
HotForex is already providing its clients with negative balance protection, regardless of the classification, therefore there is no change here.
As a client, you should make yourself familiar with the changes that ESMA has enforced and take into serious consideration the notifications that HotForex will be sending out from time to time regarding this development.
Moreover, we strongly suggest you evaluate and review your current trading strategy in relation to ESMA changes.
