Notice how hard it is to find a fully regulated broker, within a credible legal jurisdiction, offering PAMM? From Central America to Mauritius and Cyprus, but few and far between in Australia, England, Europe, and the USA. This worries me because there is little protection if a particular broker gets into financial difficulty...what's the point of making a good return if you can't get your hands on your money?
If you carry out any form of Due Dilligence you should be able to 'confirm' licensing and approval with local financial authorities, confirm the safety of client funds, the ease with which you can lodge a complaint with the local regulator, and of far greater importance, being able to confirm that the local regulator will actually take action on behalf of clients if something goes wrong, e.g. Hot Forex makes a range of claims regarding being licensed, regulated, and segregated client funds, but after 3 communications with the FSC of Mauritius, and 2 communications to both the State Bank of Mauritius and Barclays Mauritius, with the aim of confirming claims made, I have received not a single reply. Imagine if something went wrong and I was depending on the FSC to help me?
Due dilligence must come first!
