As we exclusively reported back in February of this year, the Israeli police is now taking an active role in the Israeli authorities’ efforts to stop local providers who are marketing binary brokers internationally without approval.
The binary options firm owner was arrested yesterday following an undercover investigation lasting months, according to the Israeli police. The investigation was opened after an international client (not an Israeli) complained to the police that the company lost over half a million USD that she had invested.

The ability to offer exciting new products always excites investors and market participants. This is why cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ripple are taking the markets by storm. A whole new industry has developed around them. Many traders who were simply getting tired of the same old stuff are starting to see their trading interest energized by these new products. Such products increase trader participation and can increase revenues for online brokerages, as well as provide traders with extra ways to trade the market for money.
Technology has broken down borders and unless otherwise prohibited by your nation’s government, you can take your money to any brokerage in the world where the regulatory conditions are more favourable. Some countries require a minimum starting capital of $25,000 to be able to open a margin trading account. If you do not have this money, why get stuck in this mire when you can take your money to another regulated jurisdiction where the requirements for capital are less demanding? These are the regulatory issues that need to be taken care of. Ensure your online brokerage is regulated, but not in a suffocating manner.
Regulatory agencies are found all over the world, and together, they provide licensing and oversight of brokers operating in the forex, options and stock markets. Some countries provide stricter regulatory conditions than others. So the issue is not always whether a broker is regulated or not, but whether the regulators “over-regulate”. Some countries have taken regulation so far that they are actually stifling the very markets they are trying to protect. As a trader, where does this leave you?
Technology has changed all this in the 21st century and brought some semblance of order where there was chaos. Today, trading assets on the stock, forex and futures markets is much more efficient and more seamless than it was. Majority of these advances were spearheaded by the brokerages themselves or by companies providing technology support to the brokerages and exchanges.
Forex is a leveraged market, and can only be traded on margin. Brokers provide access to different types of accounts, as well as two fundamental brokerage models (market maker/dealing desk and ECN/non-dealing desk brokerage models).
Stock brokerages are of two types: full-service brokerages and discount brokerages. Full-discount brokerages offer a wide range of services, including but not limited to investment advisory services, research, tax advisory and retirement planning services. These added services make the cost of using a full-service brokerage quite high. Most retail traders opt for discount brokerages because of the low amounts charged on trade commissions. However, discount brokerages do not provide all the extras that come with a full-service brokerage.
There is always a need to talk to the brokers about something. It could be platform issues, issues with a payment channel, or just a basic, simple inquiry. Many brokers are located in countries that are far away from their traders. This distance can be bridged by an interactive customer support service. The Live Chat is indispensable to the broker’s business. Many traders love to be able to talk to the other party on the other side. It provides instant access and resolution of issues. For brokers, merely having an email or a phone number which rings and puts traders on hold forever is an outdated model of customer support. Twitter and Facebook handlers are now a must for every online brokerage.

In my next article, I plan to share with you what gold, silver, and miners are setting up for and it’s likely bigger and in the opposite direction than you think, stay tuned!
Finally, I want to mention that I will be getting back to my roots and passion in terms of article content. The past two years I changed gears to write more about the global economy and news. Recently I realized that I just don’t enjoy writing about these types of thing. Its all doom, gloom, corruption, and ridiculous actions but leaders around the world and not fun to write or read. So, I am thrilled to say that things will be back to how they were: Simple, technical analysis based forecasts and weekly trade setups.
Learn more about my daily price forecasts and turning points video:
Obviously, these moves are small and quick only lasting a day or two. But keep in mind if you have high probability trade setups and apply leverage like ES mini futures one can profit handsomely from small but frequent moves like this ranging between $250 – $1500 profit.
Fear among investors is almost identical when there is a sharp drop in price. Other than the fact that investors don’t typically scream, put up their fists and/or run away, instead they hit the SELL button to close out losing position in order to remove the fear/pain of further losses.
Look at the chart below courtesy of TMTF website. This chart was originally posted back in April with two potential price paths for the SP500 to reach the next price target of 2500. The overall forecast points to higher prices this summer with the potential of a major top forming late July or August.
The two previous charts above were based on daily charts of the markets. This portion shows you the potential turning points and trade setups each week based on the 30-minute intraday chart. Some weeks can provide multiple trade setups if property identified.
In short, the longer-term trend for US equities remains up (bullish). Based on the short-term 30-minute chart above stocks are a little overbought so a small pullback or pause is likely. While this week is a full trading week, it is going into a holiday weekend which typically favors higher stock prices by the closing bell on Friday.

The security features built into TWS seem to be better than most. Account login requires a physical token (a credit card sized card with lots of numbers), which they mail to your house and which must be activated and used every time you login. Connections are encrypted with standard SSL encryption if you so desire.
If you have an appropriate level of expertise to use the Interactive Brokers software, and their pricing model is attractive for the type of trading you do, then they are frequently the best available brokerage choice. There’s a good reason Interactive Brokers is the most popular prosumer brokerage — in an industry full of cranks and the professionally unsatisfied, Interactive Brokers has mostly happy customers.
Interactive Brokers is perhaps one of the most comprehensive stock brokers for active and advanced traders. It offers professional customer service and execution of trades is easy. However, for novice and less active investors, we recommend you look elsewhere.
Issues around trade execution (how quickly your trades execute, on what exchange, and at what price) are very complicated. In general my experience has been that IB offers good execution for most things — better in general than discount brokerages. But they are generally not quite as good as other firms specifically designed for the best execution on one or a small number of exchanges. So if, for example, you trade only stocks, you might get slightly better execution via a stock-only prop desk with dark pool access, exchange co-location, cost+ pricing, etc. But in general IB is pretty good and is very good considering the huge number of exchanges they operate on.
Before enabling futures and options trading, IB asks the account holder some questions about trading experience. If you answer you have no experience, I’m not sure they will enable these features.
Interactive Brokers customer service has been consistently professional and helpful the five times I’ve had to deal with them. Deposits and withdrawals have gone smoothly. I have heard this same positive sentiment echoed by other customers.

A note about redemption fees on commission-free ETFs and NTF funds: Most brokers charge early redemption fees if you sell the asset in the first 60 to 90 days, and all of the ones mentioned above are no exception.
A stock broker is a person or an institution licensed to buy and sell stocks and other securities via the market exchanges. Back in the day, the only way for individuals to invest directly in stocks was to hire a stock broker to place trades on their behalf. But what was once a clunky, costly transaction conducted via landline telephones now takes place online, in seconds, for a fraction of what full-service brokers used to charge for the service. (A little lost? Here’s some background on the stock market.)
TD Ameritrade and Charles Schwab receive NerdWallet’s top 5-star overall rating for good reason. Each offer round-the-clock customer service, abundant online educational content, in-person support at local branches (300 offices at Schwab and 100 at TD Ameritrade). At both, investors also have access to a healthy lineup of commission-free investments for mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs).
When we talk about customer support, we also look at a broker’s educational resources. Here Merrill Edge’s investor education center is the standout for its videos, courses, calculators, webinars and articles, all searchable by investing experience (beginner, intermediate or advanced) or topic. Plus, in addition to providing research from its own analysts, customers can also access third-party research from S&P Capital IQ, Recognia and Morningstar (which also provides an investing classroom on the site).

The Quantum USDX indicator is another solution to the same problem. Again it answers the question - is the US dollar strong or weak? In this case, the index is based on a very simple basket of four currencies, all equally weighted. And you might ask why?
One of the hardest things to do in trading, is to stay in, and take the maximum profit from any position. You know how it goes. You get in and all is going well. Then the market reverses. You get frightened, and close out. What happens next?
