Binary options provider AnyOption, which operates in the United States, will stop offering binary options trading on currencies and commodities for US customers. This move is done in order to comply with regulations.

Platforms of binary options aren’t common in the US. AnyOption is perhaps the only provider working stateside. They still operate there, offering binary options on indices and on individual stocks for US customers, but trading on commodities and forex will be unavailable from now on.

Here’s a word from them:

As leaders in the binary option field anyoption encourages to be compliant with trading regulations.
We are going through a global regulatory process that  will eventually enable us to provide customers with more assets to trade on.

Therefore we are immediately suspending Forex and Commodities options for  US customers only.
Index and stock markets will remain available as usual, on more than 60 index and stock markets worldwide, 20 hours a day.

There are no changes for traders located in other regions

As binary options become more mainstream, the best providers will distinguish themselves from the rest by complying with regulations.

The hands of regulators are felt recently in other fields: Swiss brokers will not accept US customers from July and Oanda is migrating Canadian clients to Oanda Canada.
