FSA plans to set leverage limits on retail Forex

Japan’s Financial Services Agency is planning to set limits on how much foreign-exchange investors can buy on margin. The FSA unveiled a plan to curb speculative trading in two stages, in order to spread out and neutralize any market impact. The plan calls for the leverage cap to be set at 50 times the amount of principle cash committed as early as the summer of 2010, and then lowered to 25 times the following year.
