Leading the names is Forextime which officially launched earlier this month and is led by Alpari shareholder Andrey Dashin.
Among the other names, with the granting of CySec regulation, HF Markets, AKA HotForex adds to its existing Financial Services Commission (FSC) of the Republic of Mauritius licensing. As of today though, the new CySec regulation has yet to be registered on HotForex’s, so it is unclear if HF Markets will be launching a separate CySec regulated broker or simply running dual offices for the HotForex brand.
UBK Markets is a soon to be launched broker (their Russian language only site is in beta mode). The firms was created by the founders of automated trading providers FxMarketWave.com and GelanTrawler.com that advertise to the Russian language market. Similarly, FxNet is a newly launched MT4 broker with its site up and operational.
According to Eran Chertok-Gorodezky, CEO of Ouroboros Derivatives Trading Ltd’s Linkedin page, “Ouroboros Derivatives Trading Limited is the first Cyprus Investment Firm (“CIF”) to receive a license from the Cyprus Securities & Exchange Commission (“CySEC”) on the bases of providing binary options trading (“license number 187/12). The company will be offering binary options trading to EU clients.” Therefore, we should be soon seeing another regulated Binary Options broker springing up shortly to join Banc De Binary among regulated options brokers.
