NFA takes emergency enforcement action against Illinois forex firm, One World Capital Group LLC
December 3, Chicago - National Futures Association (NFA) announced today that it has taken an emergency enforcement action against One World Capital Group LLC (One World), a Futures Commission Merchant and Forex Dealer Member located in Winnetka, Illinois.
Effective immediately, the Member Responsibility Action (MRA) prohibits One World from soliciting or accepting any additional customer accounts or funds. In addition, the MRA prohibits One World from accepting or placing trades for any customer accounts except for the rollover and/or liquidation of existing customer positions. The MRA also prohibits One World from distributing, disbursing or transferring any funds without prior NFA approval. One World must produce a financial statement, including a net capital computation, which reflects all assets and liabilities to NFA.
The NFA investigation was prompted by complaints NFA received from One World's forex customers. Several customers notified NFA of their difficulty in withdrawing funds from their One World trading accounts and have yet to receive their requested withdrawals. During the course of the investigation, One World failed to produce complete support for certain material asset and liability balances.
The MRA will remain in effect until One World has demonstrated that it is in complete compliance with all NFA Requirements. One World may request a hearing before an NFA Hearing Panel.
