Earlier, CEX.IO Broker received a market-making CIF license from the EU-based regulator, the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC).

With the multi-account trading terminal, advanced exposure management, various leverage levels, and other useful features, CEX.IO Broker provides the flexibility to deploy the margin trading strategies that best fit its customers’ trading style. To add a level of convenience, traders can use a single login to access both derivatives markets on CEX.IO Broker and spot markets on CEX.IO.


Authorised to operate as a Cyprus Investment Firm (CIF), CEX.IO Broker can provide investment and professional trading services – including, but not limited to, transferable securities, derivatives, and foreign exchange – within the European Union under the MiFID II framework.

CEX.IO Broker also opens the path for forex traders in Europe to a new industry and asset class. By offering a multitude of services, we provide the opportunity for our users to grow in our very own ecosystem,” – Oleksandr Lutskevych, founder and CEO of CEX.IO, stated.
