“tixee” is a trading name of Pipbull Ltd, which is authorized and regulated by the Financial Services Authority in Seychelles (FSA) under the license number SD061. In addition, tixee is a trading name of GVD KORIMCY LTD that is authorized and regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) under the license number 411/22. The website tixee.com is operated by Pipbull Ltd.
tixee notes that the client’s funds are kept in separate accounts and negative balance protection is provided, which is a requirement of the European body ESMA. Having a customer account ensures that even if “tixee” goes bankrupt, the customers’ funds (or part of them) will be recovered. On the other hand, negative balance protection ensures that your account balance will never go negative, and you will not owe funds to that company. CFD trading involves the use of leverage, which means traders can use more funds than they have available to increase their buying power. This increases the risk and likelihood of losing more money than their account balance.
