As there are more and more traders, the supply of brokers has also increased considerably, and there are more and more brokers. With so many different brokers, some of these are simply not worth investing our money. ➡️ Then, How does What does a trader do to select a good broker? It is likely that with so much offer, you do not know which broker to select.

Well, one of the most important points, one of the things you should definitely look at in order not to have problems when investing, or more likely, after investing with this type of company is whether or not the broker is regulated. To avoid this type of problem, and many others, we must select one with these characteristics.

✅ Nor should you confuse that a broker is licensed, that it is regulated ⛔. We will try to explain this in the simplest way possible. A regulated broker is headquartered and controlled by the regulator of the place where the broker is resident. But nothing prevents it from operating in other countries. Let's say that there is a broker in Germany, regulated by the due German regulatory body, after completing the due procedures, it will be authorized to operate in different European countries, such as Spain.

The problem is that if I have a problem with the broker and I am in Spain, I still have to claim it before the German regulatory body. Taking this into account, the best option would be to operate with a broker regulated by a regulatory body in the country where we reside. If we are in Spain, then look for a broker regulated by the Spanish CNMV.

We always recommend trading with properly regulated brokers, which in theory means ruling out those in Cyprus, Vanuatu, British Virgin Islands, and any small island or country that is a tax haven or that you didn't even know existed.

➡️ Why choose a regulated broker?

A regulated broker is one that is under the supervision of a legitimate regulatory body. These types of organizations, or entities, whatever one wants to call them, serve precisely to prevent the broker from exploiting the trader, to avoid abusive practices, avoid fraud and deception, and in general to protect the client. In general, the broker is more controlled, and its quality and practices are controlled.

⛔ Regulated brokers must follow practices regulated by regulatory bodies. ⚠️ The unregulated, should not follow any practice, in case they do not want to follow it. ⛔

If the broker is not regulated, we recommend you, at least, think twice before investing with this broker.

➡️ How can I know if a broker is regulated?

To know if a broker is or is regulated, it is easy, usually a broker, on its website shows if it is regulated, it usually shows it in a showy way, since it is something well seen in the broker market, it gives a certain guarantee and legitimacy. If you cannot find it on the main page, you can look for sections on the web such as, “about us”, “why to invest with this broker”, “regulation”, “security of funds” or sections similar to these.

It is also normal for the broker to provide the registration number, so that one can search and see if it is really regulated or not. If you can't find it in this section, because usually brokers have a chat, or contact section, ask them.

⛔ The lack of this type of information on their websites is a sign that IT IS NOT REGULATED ⛔, Since, as we mentioned before, a broker is usually “proud” of its regulation, since it differentiates it from unregulated brokers, and makes the broker at a higher level than an unregulated broker, the regulation of a broker provides certain security to the broker's clients.

Some of the most popular regulators are: FCA (Financial Conduct Authority, UK), BaFin (German regulator), FINMA (Swiss regulator), FMA (Austrian regulator), ASIC (Australian Securities and Investments Commission in Australia) and SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission , in the United States), CNMV (Spain), CONSOB (Italy), CMVM (Portugal), to name a few regulators.

    Hola buenas noches,la verda tengo unas dudas de los brokers TIXEE .COM – IFOREX. MEX- quisiera saber si puedo confiar en ellos

    • Recommended-brokers.com Reply

      Hola Henry, ninguna de las 2 es confiable. Gracias por tu pregunta sobre Tixee. Este broker es considerado una ESTAFA. Sugerimos NO enviar dinero, mienten para robarte, las operaciones son ficticias, el dinero nunca lo cruzan con el mercado, lo simulan y al final te marcan y dicen que lo perdiste todo y se lo quedan.

      If when you request a withdrawal, they ask you for more money to pay commissions, taxes, fees, legalizations, etc. Never do it! It is a clear warning that you are a client of a fraud broker and even if you pay, they will never return your money.

      All the information you provide about the company will help those affected by this broker, explain in detail how everything happened, what advertising you saw, the name of your advisor, numbers, emails from which you have been contacted, etc.

    Good morning, they are contacting me from the Capex .com broker. I want to know if it is regulated to be able to invest with them.

    • Recommended-brokers.com Reply

      Hello ALBA, they are manipulators and liars. Thank you for sharing your experience with CAPEX, we only try to give a voice to clients who want to freely express their opinion based on their experience with this or other brokers and prevent them from being scammed by Brokers who ACT IN BAD FAITH and END UP WITH THE MONEY OF ITS CUSTOMERS.

      You can read a review about them here: CAPEX

      At this broker, almost 100% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with them. Having a sponsorship agreement with Juventus does not guarantee that it is a good broker, many brokers use this commercial tactic to attract clients and then are more aggressive asking these clients for money to amortize the expense and finally end up losing everything.

      Besides, CAPEX is part of the same company as the CFD Global broker, a broker with a very negative reputation, this does not give us a good feeling, quite the opposite.
      If you have more information about the company, we ask you to share it with us, especially if it is information that you think can help other people investing with this company.

      Do you have names of advisers, numbers, emails from which they have contacted you? Do you remember how you found this broker in the first place?

    I would like to know if Global Next Trader is regulated and if it is reliable…

    • Recommended-brokers.com Reply

      Hello Noemi, this broker is a FRAUD, a DECEPTION. Thank you for inquiring about GNT Capital – Global Next Trade. This broker is a SCAM. Do not send them money, they want to get as much money as possible with lies, the operations are not real, they do not put the money in the market, they just make it look and in the end they tell you that you have lost and they keep it.

      They always try to manipulate you, they will not return your money, neither the initial one nor if you send them later you will not see it anymore, try to claim through our chat.

      You can read their review and comments here: GNT Capital
