We have recently received complaints and read many negative reviews on the internet about regulated binary options brokers using indecent practice towards traders. Although some binary brokers may be regulated, we do not recommend opening a trading account with ANY broker, be it a regulated broker or a non regulated broker, as THEY ALL seem to be unethical and non-trustworthy, even the regulated ones! If you have been scammed by such a company you can check out our RECOVER FUNDS FROM BINARY SCAMS section.

Also, instead of trading binaries which are mostly scams, you can trade with a trustworthy and popular FOREX broker such as STR Capital.

What is the FSB (Financial Services Board) of South Africa and What is Its Role in Regulating Binary Options

Binary option regulations have taken another step forward with the introduction of the FSB into the picture. The Financial Services Board of South Africa is “an independent institution, established by statute to oversee the South African non-banking financial services industry in the public interest, and fully funded by fees and levies imposed on this industry.” The FSB is also the regulative body that regulates AnyOption, one of the popular and trusted binary options brokers that has its own home-made platform.

Binary Options Trading in South Africa

In South Africa it is estimated that tens of millions of dollars are invested each year in binary options schemes, many of these dollars being invested into brokerages that may be using indecent practices in order to scam or defraud investors out of their hard earned money. This is why it is crucial for regulatory bodies such as the FSB to take a stance in the binaries market and regulate the trade for South Africans.
