Es gibt scheinbar einen neuen FSB Anbieter, der durchaus interessante Konditionen bietet.

 

DAX, FTSE - Spread: 1Punkt, DOW- Spread: 3 Punkte bei MinStake: 1 => siehe auch Populäre Märkte

 

Zuerst dachte ich, es wäre ein weiteres White Label der LCG/ Capitalspreads. Laut About Us handelt es sich aber um einen Ableger des UK Spread Betters SpreadEx. Die Muttergesellschaft SPREADEX LIMITED unterliegt der Aufsicht der FSA, Reg. Nr# 190941.

shortsandlongs.com ist ein Trading Name der SpreadEx und besitzt seit dem 30/09/2008 eine gültige FSA Lizenz zum Anbieten von FSBs.

Die Software ist webbasierung und unterscheidet sich nur geringfügig von Konkurrenzprodukten. Ob es sich um eine Eigenentwicklung handelt, konnte ich bislang noch nicht herausfinden.

 

Die Seite ist gut gemacht, allerdings nur in englischer Sprache verfügbar.

Auch 6 Monate später ist noch keine Antwort eingetroffen ^^

 

Das ist allerdings nicht der Grund für das 'Schieben' des Themas.

Folgenden Artikel habe ich gerade von einem Kollegen erhalten, der aufzeigt, mit welchen harten Bandagen um Kunden geworben wird.

Spreadex Warned Again By ASA

 

NEWS
For the second time in less than six months, the UK’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has ruled against Spreadex Limited and an advert for its ShortsAndLongs.com online financial spreadbetting service.

 

The regional print advert was headed ‘Capital Punishment?’ with body copy that read ‘Looking to escape your spreadbetting firm? Want an account with tight spreads, fast executions and ', width: 600, height: 400 } )">

For the second time in less than six months, the UK’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has ruled against Spreadex Limited and an advert for its ShortsAndLongs.com online financial spreadbetting service.

 

The regional print advert was headed ‘Capital Punishment?’ with body copy that read ‘Looking to escape your spreadbetting firm? Want an account with tight spreads, fast executions and no re-quotes? How about free guaranteed stops, which means you will never lose more than is in your account’.

 

London Capital Group and CMC Markets complained to the ASA, in particular regarding the use of a logo alongside the text that they felt denigrated Capital Spreads, a competitor with a emblem very similar to that used in the heading of the ad.

 

In addition, CMC Markets challenged whether the ad was misleading because it implied that Capital Spreads did not offer ‘tight spreads, fast executions and no re-quotes’.

 

Despite Spreadex’ assertion that the ad was intended purely as a light-hearted look at the spreadbetting industry with no denigration towards Capital Spreads, the ASA agreed with both complaints and ruled that the advert must not be shown again in its current form.

 

“On the basis of information provided by Capital Spreads, the headline ‘Capital Punishment?’ was incorporated into a graphic that very closely resembled Capital Spreads' logo,” read the ASA’s ruling.

 

“We considered that readers were, therefore, likely to understand the graphic as a reference to Capital Spreads' service. We concluded that the ad denigrated Capital Spreads and, therefore, breached the code.

 

On the second point, the ASA stated that the similarity between the headline graphic and Capital Spreads' logo alongside the claim ‘looking to escape your spreadbetting firm’ meant that readers were ‘likely to infer that a comparison was being made between Capital Spreads' service and Spreadex's ShortsAndLongs.com and that the listed account features were not available to Capital Spreads account holders’.

 

“Because Spreadex had not shown that that was the case, we concluded that the ad was likely to mislead,” read the ASA’s ruling
