How to Avoid SCAM Trading Brokers

Navigating the world of trading can be daunting, particularly when it comes to choosing the right broker. Select the wrong one, and you may risk losing all your money and not be able to recover it.


In this article, I’d like to share a unique approach to find the perfect broker for you using AI. Specifically, using OpenAI’s ChatGPT.

We will start by breaking down what we will include in the prompt & why it is important.

Identifying Reputable Brokers

When starting, many traders are attracted to the fancy advertisements of brokers promising wealth at the press of a few buttons. Be cautious, as some of these are scam brokers.

As a safeguard, begin your search prompt on ChatGPT by specifying that you want a broker based in your country. In my case, I would indicate “my country is Kenya” and then request for a list of up to five reputable brokers based on this criterion.


1. Length of Operation

Next, specify the duration of the broker’s operations. A reputable broker should have been in the market for at least ten years. This period allows sufficient time to accumulate data and customer reviews about the broker. Have they been reliable with payouts, or do they have complaints lodged against them?


2. Broker Regulation

Good regulation is an essential factor. Many new traders are lured by trading bonuses, a tactic often employed by scam brokers to tie up your deposited money. Top-notch regulators, such as the FCA (UK), CySEC (Europe), and ASIC (Australia), have banned the giving of trading bonuses. These bodies oversee strict standards and some offer compensation to clients if a broker goes under.

Be aware of fraudulent claims and negative reviews. Sometimes brokers with a bad reputation simply rebrand themselves and continue their deceitful practices. Ensure the broker you’re considering hasn’t had previous complaints about withdrawal issues or other fraudulent activities.


3. Broad Asset Class Offerings

For a robust trading experience, you need a broker that offers access to various asset classes beyond just Forex. Your broker should provide access to currencies, stocks, commodities, indices, ETFs, and cryptos. Market opportunities vary between asset classes, and diversification helps manage risk and potentially increase returns.


Final Search prompt

To facilitate this search, leverage the power of AI with the below carefully crafted ChatGPT search prompt.  Just add your country name at the beginning as shown below. You can then use it in ChatGPT here:


“My country is {Enter country name}. Please give me a list of up to 5 reputable trading brokers that: – have been in the market for at least 10 years, accept clients from my country , – are regulated by the FCA, CySEC or ASIC, and have no fraudulent complaints or negative reviews. – They need to also offer all of the following asset classes : Currencies, Stocks, Commodities, Stock indices, ETFs & cryptos.  I want to ensure that I choose a trustworthy and well-established broker for my trading activities. They need to be easy to use for beginners. Also indicate how many no. of years they have been in operation.  I need a list that I can start my research on.  The country parameter and broker reputation is very important. Don’t ignore any parameter above Rate and rank them out of 100 as well”
