Alerted by a growing number of complaints from investors and many advertisements for investors to trade in the online foreign exchange (forex or FX) market, the AMF has begun an online publicity campaign to increase public awareness of the risks of trading in the forex market. It has also published an exclusive study that evaluates returns from individual forex investments for the first time.
In accordance with Article L. 451-4 of the French Monetary and Financial Code, Article 315-67 of the AMF General Regulation includes provisions applicable to persons and entities that use an automated processing facility (APF or also called trading algorithm). The General Regulation article will be effective as of 1 January 2015.
Europe 2014-2019 – Targeting convergence and growth
As the newly elected European institutions embark on their work programme, the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) is recommending in its document “Europe 2014-2019 – Targeting convergence and growth" that the European Union focus on two key goals: ensuring rule convergence and implementation, and getting finance working for growth.
