Although based in Belize, Gerchik&Co. is predominantly focused on Russian-speaking markets. It is a member of Belarusian self-regulatory body Association for financial market development (ARFIN).
The broker supports the MetaTrader 4 (MT4) platform and recently announced the addition of RoboX, an automated forex trading software.
