The Financial Commission (FinCom), the independent external dispute
resolution (EDR) body for the forex industry, has approved the membership
application of Baxia Markets, a MetaTrader electronic communications networks
(ECN) broker founded in 2020. FinCom in a statement noted that Baxia Markets’
membership took effect on Wednesday (January 18).

The latest approval comes weeks after the self-regulatory organization
(SRO) approved Vida Markets, a
Dubai-headquartered forex and CFD broker, as its member but withdrew IdealFX’s
membership.

Baxia Markets, a Bahamas and Seychelles-based broker, provides its
traders with access to deep institutional liquidity from matching engines
located in Equinix’s NY4 data centre in the New York and the LD4 data centre in
London. The broker provides trading in forex, metal, energy, indices, shares
and cryptocurrencies .

“Baxia Markets joins a diverse range of brokerages and independent
service providers (ISPs) that utilize the services of the Financial Commission
as part of their commitment to their clients while upholding membership
requirements,” FinCom said in the statement.

As an EDR, FinComm provides “unbiased 3rd party mediation” to brokerages
when they are unable to resolve their traders’ complaints internally.
Baxia Markets, with its approved membership, can therefore enjoy protection for
up to €20,000 for each filed complaint, among other “wide range of services and
membership benefits,'” FinCom said. The regulator noted that the protection is guaranteed by its Compensation
Fund.

According to FinComm’s key metrics published on Monday, the total
number of compensation claims sought by traders from its broker members surged
by 66% during the fourth quarter of last year. This is despite the fact that
the total number of new complaints filed in the quarter declined by 38%.

Furthermore, the SRO said the total compensation it awarded decreased by
23% to $60,919 during Q4 2022. On the contrary, FinCom awarded $79,494 to forex traders
during Q3 2022, a 36% increase from the prior quarter.
