Default anti hedging

I have to rethink a few of my trading strategies now, IBFX now wont let you put 2 opposite pending orders on the same currency for the same account, I contacted them and was told they are working on an OCO program, but dont know when it will ready.

Default Hedging

I see most of the other brokers still allow two opposite pending orders, I guess IBFX will loose out in the end

Use a MT4 broker outside the US who is not under the NFA regulations but still under another statutory body of the country they belong to like Alpari(UK) Activtrades(UK), Many Swiss brokers or Australian Mt4 brokers. They all allow hedging.

Default FIFO/Hedging rules

You can read this post to see how does your US broker cope with the new regulations: Does your US broker comply with the upcoming FIFO (Rule 2-43) Regulation? | Forex Magnates

I wonder what the rationale behind this new NFA anti-hedging requirement is?
