Retail Forex

Hi Anna Firstly, keep up the great work on the site, I find myself constantly referring to it every few days. Sorry for the e-mail but I just wanted to pick your brain about something. What do you think the retail Forex business will look like in 1-2 years from now after all this has blown over and the Governments have upped the regulations etc. I’m asking because I noticed in one of the forums that some politicians in America are asking for a “Transaction tax” to be applied to certain types of trades (CDS’s, options & futures etc) at a rate of one quarter of one percent of the gross amount (eg 0.0025% on a standard lot of 10000)and there seems to be some feeling that they might target Forex traders.?
