XTB fined with $2.7 million

  1. The Polish Financial Supervision Authority (KNF) punished X-Trade Brokers (XTB) with a PLN 9.9 million ($2.7 million) fine for asymmetric price slippage.
    Publicly listed forex and CFDs brokerage XTB has prevented customers from taking advantage of price movements while allowing them to suffer from the negative effects of slippage.

    According to KFN, the broker committed those irregularities in the execution of client orders in a time period stretching from January 2014 to the end of May 2015.

    I’ve long been told that XTB is Milanese/Sicilian mob-owned.
     
  4. I believe all EU member states have financial regulators which are under the control of the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA).
