This is a bad sign. Any further news from them?

I hope people can get their money back in case of bankrupt of the broker...

Trade with determination!

If it is a real ponzi scheme, I have serious doubts anyone would get their money back.

Trade fast, learn fast, never regret!

This is curious, the company operates in New Zealand, according to the news, but there is illegal pyramid scheme. How is this possible? This Ponzi company will have many problems really.

Currently my broker switch from NZ regulation to Vanuatu. They call it improvement. I did not trust them first but after reading some articles it seems NZ regulation is no longer good.

Does that mean that, in a way, your money could be safe?


Nope it does mean company did not keep them separated and used them for its own purposes.

Actually NZ regulation sucks
In New Zealand, there are 3 well known institutions: FSPR, FSCL and FMA, but neither of them acts as a regulatory body for New Zealand Forex brokers.
<br>Although brokers are required to follow a simple registration procedure in order to provide financial services, it's fair to say that Forex trading in New Zealand so far is not fully supervised by any regulatory institution.

<p><b><a href='https://www.business.govt.nz/'>Financial Service Providers Register (FSPR)</a></b> - is a government business registry, where entities providing financial services are required to register. All NZ Forex brokers are registered with FSPR.

So you read positive things about the regulation in Vanuatu and you trust the regulator there, don't you?

yes NZ regulations sucks, either use Australian brokers or those regulated by the FCA UK.

Well I trust my broker - it has the best score on FPA as well.
And it is better to get it regulated on Vanuatu then nowhere. As they were just registered on NZ.

I suppose you either also trust the regulation in Vanuatu more than regulation in the UK, US or Europe, or the regulation is a secondary factor for your selection of brokers. I completely agree that regulation is better than just registration, as regulation implies compliance with certain rules and code of conduct by the broker.

There was another broker this year in NZ that also was found to be a Hungarian ponzi scheme. I used to work for an Australian AFSL license holder, as a financial planner, so know all the regulation stuff, plus brother works for ASIC. Tickmill has now got their FCA license and Varianse is another FCA regulated broker with good conditions I am hearing from other traders. I will be trying them out soon also.

Never heard of Varianse but I have very good experience with tickmill
