Are YOU a binary options blog owner?
If you are, you will want to read carefully. Following the United States federal law is very important for you and all of your visitors that are United States citizens. As a blog owner you have the choice on whether or not to let your visitors know their rights, and if you don’t you are setting them on the wrong path. It is against the law to solicit binary options brokers that are not CFTC-registered to any United States citizens. A CFTC-RESPECT.ORG badge will let your visitors know you have taken our pledge. We will give you a verified badge and add you to our list of websites that have taken the pledge.

“It is against the law to solicit U.S. persons to buy and sell commodity options, even if they are called ‘prediction’ contracts, unless they are listed for trading and traded on a CFTC-registered exchange or unless legally exempt. The requirement for on-exchange trading is important for a number of reasons, including that it enables the CFTC to police market activity and protect market integrity. Today’s action should make it clear that we will intervene in the ‘prediction’ markets, wherever they may be based, when their U.S. activities violate the Commodity Exchange Act or the CFTC’s regulations.”
