Why take the Regulated route?
Why have we chosen to be regulated by CySEC and what is the benefit for our investors? The first thing you need to know is that CySEC falls under the branch of European regulators advocating for secure trading, and therefore embracing European regulations such as MiFID and MiFIR.
Trading in the Financial Markets is considered a highly-liquid, fast and complex investment. Therefore it is essential to have strong regulatory oversight such as CySEC to prevent malpractice and transgression. In the CFDs market, it is important to understand that there is no centralized body governing Forex.
Instead, there are a number of governmental and independent bodies that supervise forex trading around the world. These supervisory authorities regulate forex by setting standards which all brokers under their jurisdiction have to comply with. These standards ensure that Forex/CFD trading is ethical and fair for all parties involved.
But the question still stands to how regulation benefits you as a trader? With eXcentral being supervised by CySEC, investors can be more confident about the credibility we have, as a broker.
So, why not choose a non-regulated broker?
For a retail trader, the biggest risk of trading with a non-regulated broker is that of illegal activity or schemes. Fraudulent activities include excessive commissions, very loose spreads, hidden Terms and Conditions, and even restrictions on withdrawals.
Regulatory authorities can provide a level of protection for investors as they can be trusted to restrict, sanction or ban such unwarranted actions, and to safeguard investors when regulation has been breached.
eXcentral continues to work closely with CySEC on a daily basis, to ensure that all activity is overseen. This task is performed by various departments in the company, including marketing and account managers. By overseeing all business activities, eXcentral pursues its own and its regulator’s goal of offering traders a safe platform to access the Financial Trading Markets from.
