I'd ask this question at work, but it's clearly not something I want to talk to them about. Because of regulation or employer policies, I have to hold positions for 30 days. I'm not allowed to trade commodities, am a little bit more free on ETFs, yada yada. Do these things apply to FX brokers? I had an inactive account at another broker, and my employer found out and the compliance officers came after me. Since the account was inactive, I was able to shut it down no problems. Does the same stuff happen for FX? Or is it completely unregulated? My understanding was that they aren't really regulated. I want to trade and put my math skills to use and not have to contend with these 30-day hold rules and all kinds of BS. These restrictions are annoying me to the point where I'm starting to make plans to leave my job in 6-7 months.
