Do not invest more money than you can afford to lose.
The Financial Commission (FinaCom), a Hong Kong-based external dispute resolution (EDR) organization, said on Monday it has certified the binary options platform offered by Broctagon IT Solutions Pvt Ltd.
The broker offers MT4 Binary Options, a solution that integrates binary options trading into MetaTrader 4 (MT4), the world’s most popular trading platform for forex instruments developed by Russian software company MetaQuotes.
The certification process included comprehensicve evaluation of the platform and its technical requirements, including its capacity, security, reporting and record keeping, pricing and execution policy, instruments and order types, as well as its disaster recovery plan.
“In order to provide clients with fair dispute resolution we must fully understand system’s execution mechanism and price determination process. Unfortunately, there is no singular standard that all binary options platforms shall adhere to and this is why trading technology certification is very important and needed,” FinanCom chairman Peter Tatarnikov said. “Today we gladly welcome Broctagon to our organization and believe it is a great step to leverage its credibility and grow its business globally,” he added.
The commission required binary options service providers to get certification for the platforms they use prior to applying for membership with the FinaCom. The obtained certificate may be an indication that Broctagon’s next step might be to obtain a member status with the FinaCom. The Commission has been including an increasing number of binary ioptions brokers as members in the past months.

It has also certified the trading technologies of ActTrader, BinaryStation, Tools for Brokers, Ibinex, and Olymp Trade.
