CFTC News Release New window

OSC Warning List New window 
Background:

On June 5, 2013, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) filed a civil complaint in federal court in Nevada charging Banc de Binary Ltd. (Banc de Binary) with violating the CFTC’s ban on off-exchange options by offering commodity option contracts to U.S. residents and soliciting, accepting and confirming the execution of orders from U.S. residents.  In its complaint, the CFTC also alleged that Banc de Binary was operating as an unregistered Futures Commission Merchant.

 According to the CFTC’s complaint, Banc de Binary, a Cypriot and Israeli company, operates an on-line trading website through which clients can buy or sell binary options, predicting whether the price of a certain commodity will increase or decrease in a given time period.

On October 15, 2012, the Ontario Securities Commission added Banc de Binary to its public Warning List.
