BaFin orders FXCM clone to cease operations

 

The German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht – BaFin) has ordered FXC Markets to immediately cease offering investment services and advice to German investors. BaFin stated that the two companies associated with the brand, CRLINK Limited and BT Systems LTD, are not authorised by it.

 

In fact, the German financial watchdog has previously warned investors of the risk of confusion of FXC Markets with the major forex brokerage FXCM.

 

That being said, this is not the first regulator that raises the public attention to this unregulated broker. UK’s FCA has warned investors that FXC Markets had been taking advantage of its misleading name in ‎order ‎to solicit traders who are based in the UK. Furthermore, the Italian financial watchdog CONSOB has also included FXC Markets in its alert list back in May, 2017.

 

FXC Markets is a forex and CFD broker that uses the MetaTrader 4 platform. Judging by the numerous negative user comments submitted below our review of FXC Markets, the broker has swindled a lot of investors out of their money. In order to avoid being scammed and to have proper protection, investors should deal only with regulated financial services providers.
