    I'm not surprised by a couple of names on that list. On the other hand, I am surprised to see FxOpen on it. I thought they were very proud of their FSC license.

    At least this proves that the FSC is willing to suspend licenses. That puts them above some "regulators" that are only in business to collect licensing fees.

    shocking


    At last we can start to believe that the world regulators have started to prove that no matter how high or how strong is a broker it can also be shown an exist door.!!!! Well done Mauritius for this information:D

    Surprises do occur.Fxopen that claim to be well reputed and even boasts of its ECN based platform,i hope there is a mistake somewhere.

    Since we don't have any details of why there are suspensions, this doesn't qualify as for this section of the forums. I still do want to keep this information available to forum members. I hope some of the brokers involved will make a statement in this thread.

    I'm moving this over to General Forex Talk. If the FSC gives details that are more than just technical or paperwork issues, someone please remind me to move it back.

    As far as FXOpen is concerned, this only concerns Mauritius's Jurisdiction and doesn't affect our operation elsewhere in the world at all.

    Would you please explain why your Mauritius branch was suspended and what is the faith of your customers in that area?

    If you know why, we would like to know. The Mauritius FSC has not yet given a reason apart from the extremely vague "to protect the reputation of Mauritius" statement they have already made. Your guess is as good as ours.
