Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Speed: with EagleFX and PrimeXTB, you can open an account in seconds and fund your account immediately after that. This will allow you to seize trading opportunities, when speed is a key consideration. In contrast, most brokers will require that you provide proof of identity and proof of address, which may also may need to be certified.
  • Anonymity: you'll be anonymous to your broker as they require neither proof of identity nor proof of address. If you trade with EagleFX.com you'll only need an email address and a telephone number to verify your account. If you trade with PrimeXBT, you'll only need an email address and may add Two-Factor Authentication for enhanced security. You should note that both brokers reserve the right to subsequently request further documents in order to meet anti-money laundering requirements.
  • Privacy: because neither EagleFX nor PrimeXBT.com require tax identification numbers, your trading activity and assets will remain private. It is your responsibility to ensure that all tax due is paid.

Cons

  • Lack of regulation: brokers with no "Know Your Customer" checks are typically incorporated in countries with less rigorous governance standards. This means that you may lack the peace of mind that comes with with dealing with a licensed business, overseen by a financial regulator.
  • Lack of protection: brokers with no KYC checks are typically incorporated in countries with no investor compensation funds. This means that you could lose the entirety of your balance, in the unlikely event of your broker's bankruptcy. In contrast, investors who trade through brokers regulated by the FCA or CySEC are automatically eligible for protection, up to a certain amount.
  • Risk of fraud: crucially, you will need to trust your broker to do the right thing. For this reason, we suggest trading through established brokers who have achieved recognition in their industry. You may also want to open an account with more than one broker in order to diversify your investments.
