Conclusion about LMAX Global
This is the case when the official work and regulation of the broker's activities make its services practically inaccessible to residents of the post-Soviet space. And it is not just about a high minimum deposit of $ 10 thousand. The broker will simply dismiss a person who wants to invest much bigger amount of money because in his/her country brokerage services are still outside a legal field. This means that good British broker should not provide such customers with services.
