In order to protect invested funds, when selecting a company for a long-term partnership a professional trader should consider not only a company's specific trading conditions but also, most importantly, the existence of documents confirming that the company's operations comply with the relevant countries' legal requirements and that the company complies with internationally recognized financial standards.

Our business model is based on pure exchange rule - at any moment and for any price there are traders willing to buy and there are traders willing to sell. In an ideal situation the positions of those who buy and of those who sell are equal.
The clearing is done inside our system and we get our commission out of the trading volume.
In cases where there are differences between the buyers and the sellers we pass this risk to the market maker which covers the risk.
