Is Uptos a scam or legit broker?

No, it is not safe to trade with Uptos as it is an offshore broker. Uptos LTD is registered and operates as a financial investment company under the laws of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

However, the fact is that St. Vincent and the Grenadines is an offshore zone, which does register the financial investment firm, but provides very poor if none requirements to the company operation. That means, the broker is not regulated, not overseen and does not comply with strict international rules that provide protective measures to the traders. Therefore, it became an offshore zone for shady forex brokers such as CVC Markets, AAG Markets and more. Read more about St. Vincent and the Grenadines regulation by the link.

Moreover, Uptos has been blacklisted by the Italian regulator CONSOB:

“CONSOB  availed itself of the powers deriving from the “growth decree” regarding the blackout of the sites (including Uptos LTD (website www.uptos.net) of abusive financial intermediaries, as well as the new power introduced by Law no. 8 of 28 February 2020, regarding the blackout of the site through which the abusive bid is made.”

The pages and official sources of the international regulators’ list alert shared with the authority directly or by other countries’ supervisory bodies or transmitted centrally. Those tools and general purpose of the regulatory bodies operate in order to enable stability of the market offerings, protect clients from potential and numerous frauds, enable reliability rules to financial service entities and more. As Uptos got no license to operate within the EU and other regulated jurisdictions, the broker was blacklisted and alerted by the EU authority.

We advise all investors and traders to avoid Uptos and other offshore brokers. Traders should trade with well-regulated brokers such as UK brokers or brokers in Australia and reliable brokers such as FXTM and XM.com.
