 OptionRally fires 50 staff

We remind that in the past few years majority of the regulators (AMF, CySEC, etc.) gave warnings against a number of brokerage firms in the OTC binary options industry. While possessing the power of pointing at the firms who lack proper authorization, the watchdogs have no legal jurisdiction to prevent potential investors from working with unreliable companies. Therefore the regulators strongly advice traders to keep an eye open to the warnings and be careful when choosing a company to invest their assets in.
