Trading vix options strategies
But the industry has made significant advances and most brokers are looking to get a license from one of the main regulators across the globe. And speaking of that, the main player is now the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC); their increased activity is due to the fact that most binary options brokers choose to operate out of Cyprus, so they have to get regulated by a Cypriot authority.
You can read this in-depth and recently updated article about CySEC Regulation but keep in mind that other regulatory agencies are stepping in and start paying more attention to the binary options industry.
The British Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) recently took some steps towards regulating binary options in the United Kingdom (Article coming soon), but also other regulatory agencies around the world are doing the same.
However, I believe the best thing is that brokers now want to become regulated and this is mostly because traders demand to invest with licensed firms.
