Banc de Binary In Negotiations With CFTC About US Regulations

Jan 25 2013
By
It's fun to do Forex trading in the US lately, either as a trader or a broker. You know what I mean – all those charming rules and regulations, the NFA messing with brokers... It actually comes as a surprise when I hear there's someone who actually wants to be regulated in the States.
 
I guess that Banc de Binary must be very brave to make this attempt: as of yesterday, the American binary options broker has entered into negotiations with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). The goal is to have binary trading regulated in the US. This would legitimize binary options as a financial instrument and give more credibility to companies that offer binary options trading. It would also bring security to traders – after all, we all feel safer having some legislature to lean on when putting our personal finances at risk. 
 
Of course, considering the fact that Banc de Binary recently made the news with its decision to open a new headquarters in Cyprus and get the CySEC license, the desire to be US-regulated is understandable. In fact, it sounds fairly reasonable to me. The part I find more interesting, though, is that Banc de Binary will not be allowed to accept new US customers for as long as negotiations last. Previously registered account holders and foreign customers will retain full access to all services, of course. So, it was fine to open an account before the regulation talks, but it is forbidden now. It almost seems like requesting specific legislation to legalize a binary options in the good old US of A has more disadvantages than it has benefits, doesn't it?
 
Nonetheless, the decision to operate only in regulated countries is commendable. Especially since it would also help turn binary options into a legalized financial product and will improve its image – which is good news for binary traders. It just seems sad that a company has to move all the way to Europe to get its regulation (for the time being, Cyprus is the only country acknowledging binary options as a financial instrument, and Japan is working on such a regulatory framework), and its own country seems reluctant to assist it in legalizing a trade that, when all is said and done, is both profitable and popular.
