The International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) has published a final report on retail over-the-counter leveraged products, which analyses offers of rolling-spot forex contracts, contracts for differences and binary options to retail investors. The report identifies various risks related to the marketing and sale of complex OTC leveraged products to retail investors, and describes how some regulators are responding to the challenges these products present. It is based on a survey of 21 IOSCO members regarding their experiences with leveraged OTC products, the firms that sell them and current regulatory and supervision frameworks.
