iOptions goes bankrupt
November 11th – 2013
One of the largest brokers in the industry, iOption has closed its doors and is rumored to be preparing a declaration of bankruptcy, affecting thousands of traders, affiliates and personnel.
The company had been facing financial difficulties for quite some time, and there had been talks about a possible buy out, either by Anyoption or any of a number of large Forex sites aiming to enter the binary field.
Ultimately, neither materialized, and the troubled broker has taken the drastic step of closing its doors. This should serve as an additional warning to traders, that only brokers with proper regulatory documents, such as EZTrader, should be entrusted with your money.
Binary Options Signals on the Rise
The use of trading signals in the binary options field has had a significant increase during the second half of 2013. With the launching of Algobit in August, and with several brokers now offering their own signals service, traders have become aware of the power, and danger of this financial tool.
Traders in Europe, specifically Germany and France, have been using signals more frequently, with preference being given to fully automated services. Automated trading can be very advantageous, and the introduction of modern systems which adapt specifically to binary trading are an innovation that might soon change the manner in which clients operate the trading platform.
EZTrader Launch Mobile Site
April 18th, 2013
EZTrader have launched a new and improved mobile site which enables traders to invest online from any smartphone or tablet. The site has set the bar high for the mobile binary field, with several brokers targeting a share of the mobile market, a most sought after niche that has become increasingly popular.
The EZTrader mobile platform gives clients the same benefits and possibilities as exist in the regular site. A key development, the inclusion of the entire asset list, permits traders to use their full binary investment portfolio from virtually anywhere. Positive news indeed.
Banc de Binary obtains regulation
March 7th, 2013
Banc de Binary is the first broker worldwide to be officially regulated by a governmental patron. The Cyprus Securities And Exchange Commission, the financial regulatory agency of the Republic of Cyprus, has registered Banc de Binary according to the recently implemented regulatory ruling that allows binary options brokers to formally undergo a regulation process.
As a result, the British Financial Services Authority has registered Banc de Binary as a regulated Financial Services Firm in the UK, also a first in the binary markets. This important development gives Banc de Binary and additional status as a trustworthy broker, now more than ever.
You can now register with Banc de Binary with the tranquility of knowing that your investment is secured by a governmental regulation. Cyprus is a member of the European Union. Banc de Binary is commemorating this achievement by offering traders a 100% bonus and a $50,000 demo account. It does not operate in the USA.
