Regulated European ECN/STP-broker

Every trader has faced the challenge of choosing a reliable forex broker. Some believe the guarantee of reliability is the company’s presence in Google’s top ratings. Others trust numerous specialized rating engines. However, the sites producing these ratings are for the most part financially dependent on forex brokers, and a higher position does not necessarily mean the company is reliable – rather it is more willing to shell out cash to the owners of the rating site. The same is true regarding search engines, where a brand’s position is directly related to the advertising budget spent to advance it.

Who protects you as a client and controls your broker?

FXFINPRO Capital is a European regulated broker When choosing a broker, you have to keep in mind that some companies are registered in countries with weak – or missing – mechanisms for regulating and controlling financial services. This can result in unexpected risks and problems for these companies’ clients.

A broker’s reliability is directly related to the efficiency of regulatory organizations overseeing its activities. If the broker is not regulated, there is no guarantee the reports it sends to the client will be accurate, or that the deposit money will be kept intact, or that the broker has adequate capitalization to maintain a stable financial position. When working with this kind of broker, you cannot be certain that they will ensure good trading conditions and pay your revenue.

What are the advantages of a regulated European broker?

1

Best Execution requirement

European regulators require that brokers follow the best execution policy when executing clients’ transactions. A regulated European broker must execute a client’s transaction at the best price available, taking into account the speed and likelihood of its execution.

2

Capital adequacy control

A regulated European broker must maintain a capital adequacy ratio set by the regulators, so it can meet its obligations to the clients, factoring in the risk level.

3

Independent audit and regulator control

A regulated European brokers must pass an annual internal and independent third-party audit. The regulator also requests reports from the brokers and inspects the broker’s business for compliance with the regulatory norms.

4

Appropriateness assessment

European brokers must assess the knowledge and qualifications of their clients, to avoid providing services at excessively high-risk level. (This is why, when opening an account with a regulated European broker, the client has to complete a very detailed online questionnaire).

5

Segregated client accounts

In the EU, a broker must keep clients’ funds and its own capital in separate accounts.

European regulation means that brokers are bound by strict rules, and their activities are regularly monitored and independently audited. Of course, nobody is fully protected from force majeure. But efficient control and regulation give a great boost to a broker’s reliability, resulting in better chance of successful trading for the client.

By comparing the regulation principles across different jurisdictions, it is easy to see that the best choice is a broker working in accordance with the European norms in the European Union legal environment, where oversight of financial services providers is very efficient.

Is your broker interested in you profiting, or are they interested in you losing your money?

FXFINPRO Capital is an ECN/STP broker. Many forex companies work as dealers – also called “market makers”. They offer their own quotes (“making the market” at their own discretion), operating as a contractor vis-a-vis the client. This results in potential conflict of interests.

Такие дилеры заманивают узкими фиксированными спредами, отсутствием проскальзываний или нулевой комиссией, а также различными бонусами. Но, открывая у них счета, вы подвергаете себя большому риску. Ваши заявки не попадают на рынок, а позиции существуют только на сервере дилера, который работает против вас. Такая система, называющаяся B-Book trading. Проще говоря, дилер «выигрывает» средства, потерянные клиентом. И наоборот – теряет деньги, когда клиент оказывается в прибыли. Разумеется, это неизбежно приводит к конфликту интересов.

STP broker

FXFINPRO Capital is a broker, not a dealer or a market maker. We forward all our clients’ orders automatically – without any manual intervention on our part – to our respective liquidity providers. This is A-Book trading. When our clients look at their trading terminals, they see quotes received directly from liquidity providers – without any modifications or spread mark-up.

We confirm execution of your order only when we receive confirmation from the liquidity provider. So, whenever a client opens a position in their trading platform, the same position is opened by a liquidity provider. This is why FXFINPRO Capital is not interested in you losing money.Our revenue comes from commissions paid by the clients on every trade. Therefore, we are interested in your long-term financial success. We are on your side. We do not trade against our clients.

Where are your orders executed – and how?

FXFINPRO Capital provides a choice of several liquidity providers.

Traders today prefer to trade through ECN/STP brokers. Knowing this, many companies claim they provide access to ECN/STP trading. Unfortunately, an ordinary trader cannot check whether their orders actually reach the liquidity provider or “stay in the kitchen”. Lack of transparency in choosing a liquidity provider also gives unscrupulous brokers room for manipulation.

FXFINPRO Capital offers its clients a completely transparent selection of liquidity providers. We believe that a given liquidity provider can be the perfect choice for one customer, but not for another – depending on the client’s trading style, deposit amount and other preferences.
