The affiliate marketing industry has been of material importance for the growth of the FX industry. With the development of the business model, brokers started opening their own news portals, aiming to secure enough resources to attract new clients.
Affiliate portals have been under increased regulatory scrutiny lately for providing financial advice without the proper authorization. Brokers regulated by CySEC, for example, are required to carefully supervise the content used by affiliates in order to ensure that clients are not targeted with misleading marketing messages.
