Maybe just wait a while on Evolve.Markets status.
I understand the reasoning here, but my vote would be to wait a few
more weeks. We know that using “defensive disclaimers” based on
U.S. geo-location are largely window dressing, and CFTC is largely basing
attacks on “public solicitation” of U.S. clients by the brokerages…
By taking the stance that “US customers” are excluded through
public web pages, thus mitigating the easy charge of public
solicitation of U.S. persons, a broker removes itself as an object
of attack by our Nanny State. That broker
can decide to accept excluded categories based on "non public"
i.e. private negotiations with the brokerage, based more on
the business case, etc…
[EDIT] if we excluded any broker making a public statement
to defend its business, making it clear that it is not “actively
soliciting” U.S. persons, as a prima facie defense against
enforcement action by CFTC et. al., then we
might end up with no brokers at all…? just sayin’…
It all comes down to “solicitation of U.S. persons” and
not whether a broker accepts a U.S. account opening request
through a private application, I think.
