Human stupidity?!

Hello everyone, I wanted to pose a question to the attention of traders, but if brokers are regulated by the FSA (Financial Services Authority) why people choose non-regulated broker and then they go to complain everywhere who have lost their money, which the broker does not return the money or do not close positions in accordance with stop loss and take profit. Are really that stupid people to entrust their money to people who are advertising on the internet?

Regulated or unregulated, I don't think it matters if the broker wants to hunt your SL, it will.

I only use regulated brokers and feel like I got 'hunted' more than once honestly.

I think the minimum, traders shoud do is to avoid unregulated brokers, as eve so its open to misunderstandings. i prefere the USA regulated, even with all the limitations on my activity. 😉

not the system is importent but your experience to read the market and take the right decision to refuse enter a trade

At least with regulated broker you have a chance to complain to the above institution. But it is not that useful. If you've been tricked for like a 100$, nobody will take you seriously. The only good thing about the regulated broker is that they can be forced to pay you money that you have on the account.

A lot of unregulated brokers offer attractive perks. I suppose a lot of it is due to people wanting the perks but not wanting to consider the risk. Which kinda means they aren't good traders, actually...

The other problem is that people 'feel' they've been cheated, but don't have any proof. It's just a lot better for their ego to say that they were cheated instead of realizing they didn't put the proper stops or make adequate risk assessment. Just because a broker isn't regulated it doesn't necessarily mean they are cheating: brokers often try to get some business before they go through the expense of registration.

I think nowadays the regulated broker is not yet a 100% protection against the scammers. Brokers are looking for more and more ways ways to make profit. So what I would really concern about is the broker's reputation.

I think the basic question is what is the regulation good for. I think it is necessary if the broker operates from countries with developed markets. From the customer point of view it acts like a two way insurance policy. First it should guarantee best execution practice. Second it enforces segregate accounts for customers and sometimes (might be always not sure here) the protection of customer funds up to a certain amount.

Everybody should be free to decide which 'insurance level' is the most appropriate as not all regulating institutions might have the same quality.

Well and it is definitely not for free (no insurance is) but unlike @dvejn I do not believe that non regulated brokers are somehow 'cheaper', but for sure they might have lower spreads and be more attractive for smaller accounts (sub $1000). It the last case most will burn their money anyway so there is no need for any fund protection.

And S/L hunting might be an other issue highly dependent on the broker business model and of course the S/L contingent to marketvolatility and traded asset.

Basically, brokers are going to function like any other business: if you want to develop a successful business, you need happy return customers. So any broker that's looking to stay in the market for the long term is going to have to maintain good business practices, because otherwise they will lose clients and they will gain a bad reputation that will prevent them from getting new clients.

Of course there are differences between how customer friendly each broker will be; but the basic rule is that scams don't last long.
