NFA keeps choking the forex industry – aggressively raises member fees
by Michael Greenberg at Forex Magnates
NFA is doing an amazingly effective job at spitting in the well it drinks from. In fact NFA behaves not as a regulator but as a controlling shareholder of its members – as it basically does whatever it wants when it comes to requirements and ‘membership’ fees. NFA just declared a new ‘dividend’ for itself by aggressively raising membership fees which for some strange reason will now be in the region of 2% of forex broker’s gross (!) revenue instead of being a flat yearly fee like up until now. To the best of my knowledge NFA is the only forex dictator regulator charging percentage of volume and/or revenue instead of just charging same membership fee from everyone.
