    How about some solid arguments...

    Forex in Siwss is not regulated .Author discussed that with different Swiss authority . Shares trading in Swiss regulated through EBK

    Statement as by Ducascopy web side -regulated through moeny laundering authority are deceptive. ..

    Author discussed this matter with Swiss money laundering
    authority .They are responsible only for money laundering
    matter .

    Not for complaint clients against broker

    Your respectfully
  6. ssss,

    First, have you ever traded with dukascopy? If not, how can you judge them? All Swiss brokers are bad by default? Come on...

    I find nothing deceptive in their money laundering clause. All brokers have this.

    Refco was a U.S broker and look what happened...

  8. Guys,
    READ it if you are trading with Swiss brokers.

    Dear XXXXXX

    Thank you for your interest in the Swiss financial market regulation.

    For the time being, foreign exchange dealers did not require an authorisation of the SFBC, provided that they exclusively dealt in foreign exchange on the spot market and that the funds were handled on a short-term basis only for the execution of the exchange transaction and that no interests were paid. Foreign Exchange dealer had to dispose of their own trading platform. This exception has been amended by the Swiss parliament recently. Starting April 1, 2008 foreign exchange trading including the acceptance of deposits from the public on a professional basis becomes a privilege of authorised banks only.

    For a overview on the coming change in the regulation of forex dealers we would like to refer to the publication on the website of the Federal Department of Finance in German French and Italian (

    We hope that we were able to help yaou further.

    Yours sincerely

  10. Clearly states that :

    "Starting April 1, 2008 foreign exchange trading including the acceptance of deposits from the public on a professional basis becomes a privilege of authorized BANKS ONLY."

    what more they can say to assure me that Swiss brokers are in danger? I have nothing against the Swiss brokers, but please don't post misleading information, and let people now the truth.
