The OSC actually issued two separate warnings – possibly not realizing that CFD Capital Markets and Apex One Trading are actually the same company. Attempting to open an account with Apex One, a client is taken to a CFD Capital Markets data input page.

According to the OSC, CFD Capital Markets and Apex One Trading is not registered in Ontario, Canada to engage in the business of trading in securities.
