CloseOption is owned and operated by the Organic Tech LLC Company – a company based in Tbilisi, Georgia, which says to be registered and regulated by the Central Bank of Georgia. And although that may sound good, the issue here is that the National Bank of Georgia does not regulate forex and CFD brokers specifically, as its sole responsibility is to oversees the monetary stability and the commercial banks in the country.
One of the main selling points of the CloseOption brokerage is that they use the exact same trading environment for demo, real and contest accounts. This allows traders to get comfortable with the platform while using virtual funds, which is a great way to ensure that the community is more profitable in the short and long-term. More brokerages should be going this route, because traders that win bring more clients, and stabilize the industry.
