Which Government Agency Licenses and Regulates Binary Option Brokers?

 

Each country government has a specific agency for the regulation of exchanges, brokers and dealers in the various trading fields: Forex, Stocks and now also Binary Options Brokers.

 

There are some reciprocal treaties between countries based on which one country recognises the regulation of the other country.

 

A typical example is the acceptance of the CySEC licenses by European Union Members.
