Did you know that Forex Brokers must comply with the following laws?

If anything, regulation is primal, more so in trading.

Now, you have chosen a reliable and trusted Forex broker like Altum FX, but do you know just how thorough compliance means to them?

At any time, for example, a regulated broker must have enough funds to cover their clients' investments. Besides, there shouldn't be a case where the broker fails to honor their contractual obligations with the client. If they fail and the client reports to the regulator, their license will be revoked. 

Regulators also state that Forex brokers must not promise clients of being profitable when trading. This means disclosure of risks relating to trading.

In addition, brokers should heed the regulator's request for unannounced audits as part of compliance checks.
