I have been with this broker called Coinexx for long enough to suggest it to people for their amazing spreads and commissions. Besides being a forex broker it also lets you trade in around 25 cryptocurrencies as well. I started trading in BTC/USD through them and enjoyed really nice spreads. Apart from this they also accept deposits and withdrawals via major cryptocurrencies.

When visiting their website, I couldn't seem to find reference to any regulatory information.

When you applied to open your account, were you provided with any legal information, (such as client agreement and/or product disclosure documents, or similar)?

Hi Cynic, Coinexx offers anonymous trading accounts, you can set up an account with them by using your email and name so there are not any legal docs as such. But if you scroll to the footer of their website, you will find privacy policy and t&c documents. As the broker does not deal in fiat so they operate as a self reg entity . They are a FX Crypto CFDs broker. Their portal is mostly self serve, you set up an account, deposit cryptos, which is instantly updated to your account and trade. If you wish to withdraw, you request withdrawal and the funds are back to your wallet within 24 hours. I hardly had to interact with their team for resolutions. Pretty sorted broker. FYI, they only allow crypto deposit/withdrawal in almost 25 coins and off crypto denominated accounts to trade digital assets and FX CFDs. Hope it helps

Thanks for your response, traderace_mkt.

Whilst I understand that the theorised benefits of regulatory oversight (and/or compliance) tend not to fully materialise in practice, I remain swayed toward precautionary sentiments akin to those expressed within the following article:

In summary, my response to the suggestion of funding an account with such brokers, is as follows:

No financial regulation! => No FTSEing way!!

Thanks for your time and effort. I have been looking for a good broker offering trading in FX as well as cryptocurrencies in one platform. After your provided info, i visited the Coinexx website and felt their trading conditions are quite good. Even the spreads looks quite competitive. Can you share a little more about your experience with this broker? Like how are the deposit/ withdrawal policies? Actually I want to be sure before going live with them, you know security reasons. :D
BUT THANKS ANYWAYS!

Perhaps some items from the Holeproof line of merchandise, may prove to be the more prudent investment.

I understand the performance of their hosiery to be highly dependable, in a theatrical sense, at the very least.

Yes you got that right. The spreads don’t just look competitive they are competitive. Based on my experience with Coinexx I’d say you don’t need to worry about your investments with them. As far as deposits and withdrawals are concerned I am happy. Unlike some other brokers with whom people usually face withdrawal issues, my withdrawal requests with Coinexx were processed pretty quickly, much faster than the other brokers I had been with in the past. Account opening with Coinexx was quite straightforward for me, no documentation required. As an added benefit they give a 100% deposit bonus on opening a new account with them. Plus their client support team has assisted me diligently whenever I needed them.

OK, I couldn't resist. I did some of my own research. First I took a look at the website and noticed that they are offering these as "Investment Plans".

screenshot-www.coinexx.org-2018-06-27-20-31-21.png

6% daily profit? 30% weekly profit? Come on guys. Pull the other one, it yodels. No description of the "trading experts" who provides these amazing services, their qualifications or experience. No history of past performance or any idea of the methodology employed. Hmmm...

So then I thought I'd check their their Product Disclosure Guide, Disclaimer, or their Financial Services License. But there was none of that on their website. Completely unlicensed. You are entirely unprotected. These guys could take your money, run off to the Bahamas and there is nothing you could do about it.

There was a Risk Warning and a T&C but that was just to cover their arse. Even in the dodgiest of jurisdictions you seem some legal documentation.

Then I thought I'd take a look at their offices at 76 Guild Street, London, UK. I was sure they were vast and luxurious. After all they were in London, one of the world's largest financial capitals and they were an "investment management company". So, I went to Google Street View and took a look.

Eh? There doesn't even appear to be a 76 Guild Road. I could find a 68 and an 82, but no 76.

Where do they house their 63 "in-house traders"? I'm a little confused now. :confused:

Ah ha G, you didn't read the fine print. The address on their website is Guild STREET, not Guild Road. Never mind there not appearing to be a number 76, actually the whole of Guild STREET London doesn't exist.

I think we have too much time on our hands.

Ahhhh! So that's why I couldn't find it. Maybe they should move to Guild Road? Any real location is better than an imaginary one. They might be able to get a good deal on this place... and it comes with a bonus shower screen in the backyard.

One of the hardest things for me to do when I'm in a winning trade is to let it go. These little distractions (like looking for Guild St, London) help my patience. The latest Trump news spike seems to have run out of steam so it might be a correct time to close one half.

Hey greggles. I think you're mistaken my friend. I was talking about coinexx.com. Have no association with coinexx.org. Perhaps you'd like to have a look at it again. Coinexx.com. I even highlighted it. Coinexx ASF Screenshot.png

Really? Then why is the company name the same on both websites?

In any case, what I said applies equally to both websites. Not licensed, no disclaimer, no Product Disclosure Statement. On the website you directed me to, there is only a Terms of Use that contains this very brief mention of risk.
Risk: Many of the products described on this website involve significant risks, and you should not enter into any transactions unless you have fully understood all such risks and have independently determined that such transactions are appropriate for you. Any discussion of the risks contained herein with respect to any product should not be considered to be a disclosure of all risks or complete discussion of the risks which are mentioned.

The Risk Warning on this website should be considered prior to conducting transactions.
Yet there is no description of what those risks are. The above Risk Warning even states that the company is deliberately not disclosing all the risks. Why would anyone in their right mind give a company like this any money, real or crypto? There is absolutely no protection or accountability whatsoever.
