Best thing about regulations - the safety net! Feel relieved that I have somewhere to approach if need be. I never ever take a chance with my investments, going to any hillbilly broker. Stick to CySec regulated brokers as I know they can be approached if you feel wronged. However it’s best to contact the broker first - protocol!
I second your opinion, there’s a degree of control with the trader. But I guess the topic itself is overstated. Haven’t faced any issues since last 2 years with my brokers (IG, XTB) who are regulated by Cysec.
Yes, off course without a doubt CySec regulated brokers are the best choice. When any broker is under the surveillance of regulation, the interest of the trader is automatically protected. Your funds are secured, no trade manipulation is possible and you get a superior power to take your complaints if the broker does something against your will.
