XM is one of Europe’s most reputable, leading Brokers which established themselves in 2009. Their mission is to keep pace with global market demands and approach clients’ investment goals with an open mind. XM is a fully regulated company with the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC). The Company is also registered with the New Zealand FSP, the UK’s FCA, and many otherEuropean regulatory bodies. Clients who trade with XM benefit from their no re-quotes and no rejection policy which has been in place since they began. Investors from 196 countries around the world are able to trade forex, precious metals, stock indices, and energies in a trading environment which is fair and transparent.
As the Forex market gets more and more competitive, many brokers are trying to reshape their image to meet the changing market environment. One of the latest brokers to embark on such an exercise is XE Markets. Formerly known as Trading Point of Financial Instruments Ltd, this broker was founded in 2009. Such a move is hardly surprising as many online brokers have to grapple with the issue of reliability due to the paradigm shift in the financial trading environment. At the end of the day it boils down to how well traders perceive these online brokers to be regulated by the relevant authorities.
Regulations Governing XE Markets
As a registered company operating in the Republic of Cyprus, XE Markets is regulated by Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC). The significance of this is the fact that Cyprus is a member of the Eurozone. This mean Cyprus is required to conform to the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) issued by the European Parliament. This directive was issued to ensure that all Eurozone members are required a certain minimum fiduciary standard for the financial service providers operating in the member’s country.
As such the fact that XE Markets is operating from Cyprus or the United Kingdom or any other Eurozone countries makes no difference to the degree of fiduciary duties that the company have to meet. Nevertheless, the company is also registered with and regulated by the UK’s Financial Services Authority (FSA). The reason for this is probably because many newcomers to Forex trading harbour the notion that a Cypriot registered firm is less well regulated than a UK registered firm. Hence to reassure their clients and to displace this misplaced notion, many online brokers like XE Markets voluntarily subject themselves to added regulations for their clients’ peace of mind. For added measure, XE Markets have also registered themselves with German financial regulatory authority BaFin.
Being properly regulated ensures that brokers report their operations regularly to conform to the regulatory requirements and also ensure that traders have access to protection like the Cypriot Investor Compensation Fund in case XE Markets ceases operation.
Operational History of XE Markets
Although previously operating as Trading Point, XE Market have charted up an impressive operational record since 2009. Nevertheless, no company is immune from complaints made by disgruntled clients. However before reading too much into such complaints, we need to understand the nature of the complaints. More often than not, most of these complaints are the results of inexperienced traders having no idea of what they are doing. Most of the time, their frustration led to them labelling their brokers as a bucket shop without having any real comprehension of how the market works or how EU laws work.
