CySEC withdraws authorization of Centralspot Trading
Centralspot Trading Ltd operates as CFD trading firm Opteck and trading software provider FXVC.
The Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) today published its decision to withdraw the authorization as Cyprus Investment Firm of Centralspot Trading Ltd. The decision has been made due to the company’s suspected non-compliance with securities laws.
In particular, the law violations committed by the firm are seen to seriously endanger the interests of the company’s customers and the proper functioning and integrity of the market.
The company is obliged, within fifteen (15) days, to take actions to comply with Articles 92 (1) and 93 (1) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013.
Throughout the suspension of its license, the company is not allowed to provide/perform investment services/activities, nor to establish a business relationship with any person and accept any new clients. The company is also not allowed to advertise itself as an investment service provider.

- Complete all transactions with its customers.
- Return all the funds that it owes to its customers.
