‘More Volatility’

 

“You’re going to get more volatility,” Joseph Trevisani, chief market strategist at WorldWideMarkets Ltd.

The Canadian dollar fell from almost
a two-week high against its U.S. counterpart as Bank of Canada

Trading spot currencies involves substantial risk and there is always the potential for loss. Your trading results may vary. Because the risk factor is high in the foreign exchange market trading, only genuine “risk” funds should be used in such trading. If you do not have the extra capital that you can afford to lose, you should not trade in the foreign exchange market. No “safe” trading system has ever been devised, and no one can guarantee profits or freedom from loss.

One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk. Variables such as the ability to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses as well as maintaining adequate liquidity are material points which can adversely affect actual real trading results.

What regulatory authority oversees WorldWideMarkets and how strong are the regulations?

 

WorldWideMarkets N.V. is a fully regulated Forex and CFD Investment Firm regulated by the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) and the Dutch National Bank (DNB) (License #14003403).  http://www.afm.nl/en/professionals/registers/alle-huidige-registers/beleggingsonderneming.aspx?index=0&id=7E2C96CC-A004-E111-A203-005056BE6692&all=1&q=worldwidemarkets 

 

 

WorldWideMarkets N.V. is an EEA authorized entity of the Financial Services Authority (FSA) in the UK (FSA# 584538). http://www.fsa.gov.uk/register/firmBasicDetails.do?sid=302800 

 

 

WorldWideMarkets, Ltd. is licensed with and regulated by the British Virgin Islands Financial Services Commission (“BVI FSC”); License No. SIBA/L/11/0960. http://www.bvifsc.vg/RegulatedEntities/tabid/245/ctl/SearchItem/mid/1025/ItemID/44966/dnnprintmodule/true/language/en-US/Default.aspx ;

 

More details:

 


WorldWideMarkets, Ltd. is licensed with and regulated by the British Virgin Islands Financial Services Commission (“BVI FSC”); License No. SIBA/L/11/0960. It is important to note that financial regulation in the British Virgin Islands was greatly strengthened in 2010 under the new regulatory regime called the Securities and Investment Business Act (SIBA).

 

Becoming regulated by the BVI Financial Services Commission now compares closely with Europe in terms of difficulty, length of time for approval and cost, as reported by respected industry press outlets in 2011. FSC firms are subject to strict regulatory scrutiny, including annual independent financial audits, annual risk assessments and compliance reporting and punitive sanctions for firms that fail to fully comply with FSC requirements.

 

Note that there is a significant difference between simply being registered in the BVI versus WWM's status of being fully regulated by the BVI FSC. Being registered means only that a company is duly incorporated in the BVI, so there is no regulatory authority and no supervision.

How are the regulations of the BVI FSC similar to the regulations of the FSA?
The SIBA requirements are substantially similar to the regulations of the leading regulatory authorities throughout the world, including the Financial Services Authority (FSA) in the United Kingdom.

 

REQUIREMENTS:

 

Customer assets are identified, or identifiable, and appropriately segregated and accounted for


Customer money is not mixed with other money


Broker makes arrangements for the safekeeping and proper protection of customer assets and any documents of title relating to customer assets


The location of a customer’s assets and documents of title relating to a customer’s assets are recorded in the customer’s records


Where any asset is required to be registered, it shall be properly registered either in the customer’s name or, where agreed with the customer, in the name of a nominee.


Broker must ensure that any customer account that it maintains is held with an approved bank


Broker must ensure that any customer account that it maintains is separate from any of the broker’s own bank accounts


Broker must ensure that any customer account that it maintains is clearly designated as a customer account


Broker must ensure that any customer account that it maintains is under at least dual signatory control, where the signatories are sufficiently senior to provide an appropriate span of control.


Broker must request the bank in writing to acknowledge that the account is a client account and that money standing to the credit of the account at any time is held by the licensee as a trustee


Broker must request the bank in writing to agree not to combine the customer bank account with any other account, whether held by the licensee or by any other person


Broker must request the bank in writing to agrees that it has no right of set off, counterclaim or any security interest against money in the customer account with respect to any debt or other obligation of said broker.


A broker shall maintain records of customer money that enable the broker, at any time, to identify the balance due to, or standing to the credit of, each customer


Unless any written agreement between the broker and a customer provides otherwise, the broker shall account to the customer for any interest received by the licensee with respect to customer money of that customer.

 

In addition, the BVI FSC requires, and WorldWideMarkets has obtained, professional indemnity insurance of up to USD1,000,000.

 

Segregation of Customer Funds:


WorldWideMarkets holds customer funds at a segregated account at Scotiabank British Virgin Islands, which is part of NYSE listed Scotiabank and one of seven banks authorized by the BVI FSC. The bank holds overUS $500 billion in assets and serves over 18 million customers in more than 50 countries around the world. WWM also has a segregated account at First Caribbean, the largest, regionally-listed bank in the English-speaking Caribbean, with assets of over US$10.9 billion.

 

What actual license does WorldWideMarkets maintain with the BVI FSC?


WorldWideMarkets is licensed with the FSC under Category 1 – Dealing in Investments, Sub-category A – Dealing as an Agent and Sub-Category B - Dealing as a Riskless Principal.

 

WorldWideMarkets is one of only four companies to have a license for dealing in investments.

 

This is the highest and most regulated license available in the FSC regulatory framework.

Documentation of WWM’s Regulatory Status can be found at these links:

 

FSC Website (Regulatory Code 2009)

 

WWM: Dealing in Investments as Principal

 

WWM: Dealing in Investments as Agent

 

What other financial services companies are operating out of the British Virgin Islands?


The enhanced BVI FSC regulatory regimen is attracting many global financial companies to the British Virgin Islands. Examples include HSBC’s private equity business for the Middle East and Gallant Capital Markets, as well as stockbroker Raymond James.

 

Europe (Netherlands, UK)


To support its global growth and ensure the highest level of security to its customers’ funds, WWM has launched a fully licensed Investment Firm in the Netherlands to access the market on both a retail and an institutional level (License #14003403) and has also been acknowledged as a EEA authorized entity by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) in the UK (FSA# 584538).

 

Official AFM Status: http://www.afm.nl/en/professionals/registers/alle-huidige-registers/beleggingsonderneming.aspx?index=0&id=7E2C96CC-A004-E111-A203-005056BE6692&all=1&q=worldwidemarkets 

 

Official FSA Status: http://www.fsa.gov.uk/register/firmBasicDetails.do?sid=302800

 

WWM N.V. is a fully regulated Forex and CFD Investment Firm regulated by the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM), which supervises the operation of the financial markets in the Netherlands, and Dutch National Bank (DNB). Further, the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive ('MiFID') is fully implemented in the Dutch Act on Financial Supervision.

European base in The Netherlands


The Netherlands, domicile of Euronext Amsterdam, was a strategic choice for WWM, due not only to its reputation for strict and innovative oversight, but also synergies with its corporate structure. Edward Liva III, Director of WWM N.V. explains, “The Netherlands is a natural expansion of our regulatory framework because it allows us to access the entire European market for forex and CFD trading with Europe’s most innovative and proactive regulator, the AFM. Further, if we choose to offer European equities execution, similar to what we currently offer through our U.S. based, FINRA regulated broker-dealer, our regulatory structure will already be built to accommodate that.”

 

The highly regarded “twin peaks” regulatory structure, where oversight is provided by the industry regulator as well as the Central Bank, was pioneered by the Netherlands and is being adopted by the UK and other domiciles. In terms of the overall stability of the Netherlands financial environment, AAA rated Netherlands provides the strong and stable economic and banking infrastructure critical to sound financial institutions. World class, well capitalized banks such as ABN AMRO, RaboBank and ING provide the foundation.

 

Stringent regulatory requirements


The Netherlands may well be among the strictest jurisdictions in Europe in terms of asset separation and also offers compensation schemes. The innovative Twin Peaks regulatory model was pioneered by the Netherlands’ regulators to stay at the forefront of customer asset protection and is being adopted by other regulatory regimes across Europe. Key elements of Netherlands regulatory oversight include: -
“Twin Peaks” protection. With this model, both the Regulator (AFM) and the Central Bank (Dutch National Bank) provide oversight. For more information on the “Twin Peaks” model, please visit the following sites:

http://www.debrauw.com/News/LegalAlerts/Pages/NewsletterRegulatoryCriminalEnforcementApril2012.aspx


Strict audit requirements – Annual Audit; Quarterly and Annual filings.
MiFID compliant.


Client Funds must be segregated from Company/Investment Firm funds per AFM guidelines.

 

Further Details about the Netherlands Regulatory Scheme


Supervision by the AFM and DNB (Dutch National Bank)
AFM strictly supervises its member institutions:


Licensing. Regulated Investment Firms such as WWM N.V. must be fully licensed by the AFM.

Member firms must meet stringent financial stress tests and compliance requirements and are subject to material sanctions or dismissal for shortfalls.


Audits:

 

Investment Firms undergo regulatory audits on a monthly/quarterly and annual basis to vet the firm’s financial status. The audit firms themselves must also be licensed by the AFM according to the Audit Firms Supervision Act, which sets the rules concerning the quality of audits . In addition, AFM employees make site visits to the Investment Firm’s premises to confirm that all applicable laws and regulations are strictly adhered to.


Controls:

 

AFM regulated firms are required to perform ‘Know Your Customer (KYC),’ Anti Money Laundering (AML) and customer suitability screening for each potential customer.

RISK DISCLAIMER: Customers should be aware of the risks associated with Over-the-Counter (OTC) market. In the OTC market, a retail customer trades directly with a counterparty and there is no exchange or central clearing house to support the transaction. The OTC market is highly speculative in nature, which can mean prices may become extremely volatile.Since low margin deposits are only typically required, an extremely high degree of leverage is obtainable in OTC trading. A relatively small market movement will have a proportionately larger impact on the funds you have deposited. Since the possibility of losing your entire cash balance does exist, speculation in the OTC market should only be conducted with risk capital that you can afford to lose, and which will not dramatically impact your lifestyle.

How much is too much? Forex spreads and what banks don't want you to know..

How much is too much? Forex spreads and what banks don't want you to know.. | Regulated Forex | Scoop.it

reference: http://finance.detik.com/kurs-mata-uang? 

 

This article can help you save money when traveling too!

 

What banks dont want you to know about Forex:

 

Many banks and currency exchange kiosks hide the real commission in the spread, and then charge a small ticket commisison making people think they are saving money paying only  a small commission. In reality, they are also charging clients a very high commission hidden in the spread and most clients are unaware of this real cost. Even if they are aware, they accept it as normal practice, but that is changing....

 

This article will attempt to give a simple example on how this has happened to many of us while traveling abroad and needing to exchange local currency.

 

Most banks and local currency exchange dealers still charge clients a very very large commission which is almost always hidden in the spread. On top of the spread (the real commission) they may add a small extra commission misleading the consumer into believing that the extra small commission is their only commission and cost.

 

For example, if a traveler heading from their local country to visit another country exchanges 10,000 Euros to see how many USD Dollars they will receive, most currency exchange services and kiosks at the aiport (or even large banks and companies like American Express) may display a spread of anywhere from 3-8%  as the difference between the BID and ASK price. That is, the difference between the price where you can Buy Euros in exchange for your USD Dollars or the price where you could Buy US Dollars in exchange for your Euros. 

 

For example, let's imagine that  the prices displayed for the Euro against the US Dollar (EUR/USD Pair) where:

 

1.3520  /   1.2844

 

This is a difference of .0676 points (1.3520 minus 1.2844 = .0676) 

 

Which is a hidden cost of $676 on 10,000 worth of currency. 

 

The bank advertises or explains the following:

 

They sell Euros at 1.3520 (ask) - this is the price you pay the bank to buy Euros in exchange for your dollars.

 

They  buy  Euros at 1.2844 (bid) this is the price the bank pays you in Dollars for each of your Euros. So they give you $12,844.00 for your 10,000 euros.

 

Then later you want to buy the Euros back back this time you have to give $13,520.00 back in order to get back the same 1000 euros! Even if you did this at the same prices its still a difference of $676.00 and that is the REAL COMMISSION the bank or broker is hiding from you and making and not the merely the extra $3 dollars or so listed as the commission normally on your reciept. 

 

Now most consumers are confused by the simple math involved in currency conversion and therefore will simply look at how much currency they are getting in exchange for the currency the already have. This highlights how the banks can "hide" their enourmos commission in the "spread" difference between the bid/ask ( which is a $676 commission for the bank) since clients do not focus on this and even if they do, the bank says "these are the rates, or we dont control the rates.etc. They may even point out that the commission is only .0001% and that the spread is not the commission (again an play on words). Some of the workers in the bank or kiosk might not even be aware of how the spread is where all the earnings are generate from!

 

In reality, the real spread in the real interbank market (where the banks get their prices from )in a hypothetical scenario like this could be as narrow as 1.3150/1.3153 which is a total difference of only .0003 as compared with .0676 as in the example above. 

 

Luckily there are companies now starting to offer such actual currency conversions at the true Inter-bank rate with much much lower spreads (just a few points instead of hundreds) such as:

 

www.Xe.com  

www.Forexus.com 

 

Also, for traders who are looking to speculate in the Forex markets and dont have a need or use for the actual currency and only want to speculate on the price move, again at very low commissions (3 pips on Euro/USD)  they can access world-class and highly regulated brokerages through: http://www.regulatedfx.com  and choose brokerages to trade Forex online in a margin account with large degrees of leverage and tools for risk management and advanced trading operations such as automated trading systems and signals.
