Meanwhile, FPA released a warning over the misconduct of the company. The caution started on September 2013, then another irregularity was confirmed last April 2014 and another one was repeated in August of the same year. The warning was followed by a strong recommendation from the FPA to practice extreme caution on depositing money with Citrades.

“CitiTrader's Terms of Use specify a minimum $300 cancellation penalty for withdrawing any money deposited if the client has not traded.  No maximum is specified.  The FPA recommends against depositing any money with this company unless you are 100% certain that you intend to trade with them,” FPA wrote.

“The Terms and Conditions for Citrades allows the company to pay any withdrawal over 1000 USD, GBP, or Euros in monthly installments.  There are other withdrawal restrictions inside the terms restricting withdrawals for certain account types for as long as one year,”

Last year, the FPA claimed that all companies associated with Cirades to be scams.In line with this, AutoTradingBinary.com appeared to be under Citrades as well.

Further, the Australian Securities and Investment Commission included Citrades on its list of entities with no appropriate license. The security commission company indicated on its report that “ASIC is concerned that these entities are marketing their services to Australians and are misleading Australian investors into believing they are operating lawfully under Australian regulation.”
