Other Asked Brokers

In addition to the aforementioned scam brokers, we've received inquiries about these brokers, including VENMAR and NXG Markets. Although these brokers are providing financial services or products within regulatory frameworks, they just have a relatively lower risk than those unlicensed ones. To safeguard your interests at best, it is critical to bear in mind that licenses and oversight cannot completely eliminate investment risks and the possibility of violations.


We would also like to bring your attention to Vantage FX, a regulated broker that received multiple warnings from other jurisdictions. Brokers are allowed to provide their services and products in which they have obtained licenses. If the business exceeds the geographical limits, then the related broker may warned by watchdogs.


Other brokers mentioned by traders this week include Equiity, BTrade, and EPFX. They have less strict regulations than other regulated brokers and we recommend being cautious when dealing with them.


Questions of The Week

Apart from the commonly asked question - "whether a broker is licensed/safe or not," we have noticed that our users are particularly interested in commissions, protective measures, currency pairs, Mauritius FSC, trading hours, and regional restrictions.
