Recently, we’ve seen an uptick in news surrounding Binary Options brokers and regulations, most recently with the reported layoffs from leading binary options brokers.
Tight regulations are limiting binary option brokers’ ability to expand. As we wrote about a couple of weeks ago, regulations are important to ensure the safety of traders; however, regulators must allow brokerages the ability to operate freely enough so they have the resources to support a safe and secure trading environment for their customers. Regulations on brokers and traders alike are forcing brokers to downsize, and focus investments into other areas of the business – like employing more lawyers and compliance officers – and not on building innovative trading technologies for traders.
In the recent weeks we’ve seen Comisión Nacional del Mercado de Valores (CNMV) increase the need for additional disclaimers on all binary brokers offering leverage higher than 10:1, including a disclaimer before trades are placed. FINRA is getting involved, too. FINRA, the largest independent regulator for all securities firms’ doing business in the , warned investors that companies and persons are approaching victims of fraud from binary options brokers claiming they can recover their lost funds for a fee, which is yet another scam itself. The latter is a perfect example of how regulators are important — by informing traders of potential risks. This is a much better use of regulations than requiring brokers to invest time, money and resources into developing technology that can show a customer the same disclaimer each time they want to make a trade.
