BCSC Binary options investment warning: Binary Uno
As BCSC oversees the financial activity across the British Columbia region, the Binary Uno, operated by DOM Technology Services Ltd. is in the spotlight currently. The firm operates online via binaryuno.com and claims to be based in London, England, as it is reported by the regulator.

When AtoZForex team member Jacob Maas asked for regulation a representative called Abdul. A mentioned that they are in the process of obtaining one but he then refused to give any information.
The note from the regulator
The BCSC Binary Uno investment warning follows the British Columbia residents experience with Binary Uno. The official warning from the British watchdog states:
“A binary option is a type of option whose payout depends on whether the underlying asset (such as a stock, a commodity, a currency pairing, etc.) increases or decreases in value. Options are considered to be securities under the securities legislation in BC. The Parties are not registered to trade in, or advise on, securities or exchange contracts in BC.”
The regulator additionally warns the British Columbia residents to exercise extreme caution when dealing with firms that are not regulated or registered to trade or advise in British Columbia.
