Tell me about it! Now when I think of it I feel so silly but at that time when I received those rosy emails with testimonials of 100s of happy clients I was only seeing green. Quite stupidly deposited 2k in an anonymous trading account and deposited 500 more to apparently withdraw my “guaranteed” profit of 10. To top it all the recovery agents turned out to be utterly useless!
The forex regulation in europe comes under the guidelines of MiFID, hence all the EU members follow the same set of rules and regulations. I have been using Fxview for the last few years, BTW its Cysec regulated and my experience with them has been smooth till now. I have tried other brokers also, regulated in different EU countries and with none of them I found any issue. In short, if you are looking for a new broker always go for a regulated one.
I am such a paranoid freak that I can’t even imagine using a broker that is not regulated. My fiancee is still surprised that I have started trading :) he cannot believe that I can get into something which has even an inch of risk, so the fact that I am trading is a bit of a shocker for him, even now after 4 years! I always advise others to only use regulated brokers, why give anybody a chance to scam us.
Thank you for this thread. I am so glad that I gave in to my friend’s pushes and opened a forex trading account. It has been precisely 5 months of trading in total for me, including 20 days of demo, and I have made more money than I did in a year of doing stupid jobs. I was spending more to keep myself entertained earlier than I was saving. And now all the money I earn while trading currencies on Fxview just go into savings. I know about the risks involved but if you are careful with your trades and have a well defined plan, there's only going to be gain.
