Cappmore FX Review: “Copy trading” securities fraud
Cappmore FX fails to provide ownership or executive information on its website.
Cappmore FX’s website domain (“cappmorefx.com”), was first registered in November 2021.
The private registration was last updated on January 18th, 2023, which appears appears to be the time Cappmore FX’s owner(s) took possession of the domain.
This is based on Cappmore FX’s official FaceBook page being created in March 2023.
Further research reveals Cappmore FX affiliates citing Ajay Arya as CEO of the company.
Other than noting Arya appears to be an Indian national, I wasn’t able to put together a verifiable history.
Cappmore FX marketing material cites Arya as founder of “The Teachable Tech”:
This corresponds with Saksham Trading Academy, an Indian company offering forex trading courses:
We, SAKSHAM TRADING ACADEMY (The Teachable Tech), situated at Karad, Maharashtra are one of the leading institutes for stock market trading and offer the best and uniquely designed courses.
This would suggest Cappmore FX is also being operated out of India.
As always, if an MLM company is not openly upfront about who is running or owns it, think long and hard about joining and/or handing over any money.
Cappmore FX’s Products
Cappmore FX has no retailable products or services.
Affiliates are only able to market Cappmore FX affiliate membership itself.
Cappmore FX’s Compensation Plan
Cappmore FX affiliates invest funds on the promise of passive returns:
- Classic – invest $10 or more
- Elite – invest $500 or more
- ECN – invest $2500 or more
The MLM side of Cappmore FX pays on recruitment of affiliate investors.
Cappmore FX pays a commission on personally recruited affiliates who invest.
Referral commission rates are determined by how much a newly recruited Cappmore FX affiliate invests:
- recruit a Classic tier affiliate and receive $6
- recruit an Elite tier affiliate and receive $9
- recruit an ECN tier affiliate and receive 12
Cappmore FX pays a ROI Match via a unilevel compensation structure.
A unilevel compensation structure places an affiliate at the top of a unilevel team, with every personally recruited affiliate placed directly under them (level 1):
If any level 1 affiliates recruit new affiliates, they are placed on level 2 of the original affiliate’s unilevel team.
If any level 2 affiliates recruit new affiliates, they are placed on level 3 and so on and so forth down a theoretical infinite number of levels.
Cappmore FX caps the ROI Match at five unilevel team levels.
The ROI Match is paid as a percentage of passive returns received across these five levels as follows:
- level 1 (personally recruited affiliates) – 8%
- level 2 – 2%
- level 3 – 1%
- levels 4 and 5 – 0.5%

Cappmore FX Conclusion
Cappmore FX represents it generates external revenue via copy trading, purportedly tied to forex and CFD trading.
Cappmore FX is an industry leader in the forex & CFD markets.
It is our promise to deliver a powerful, user-friendly, and fair trading platform.
SimilarWeb tracks negligible website traffic for Ajay Arya’s other company, Saksham Trading. This suggests Shaksam Trading is a failed business, and so now we have Cappmore FX.
The problem with Cappmore FX is Ajay Arya is pitching a “minimum 8% to 10% a per month”.
That alone is problematic but, despite only existing for a few months, Cappmore FX also claims to already be managing $75.6 million.
8% of $75.6 million comes to a minimum of $6 million dollars a month.
If Cappmore FX is already making that amount each month;
- why are they selling access for just $10; and
- why do they need your money at all?
On the regulatory front, Cappmore FX is not registered to offer securities in any jurisdiction. This means that at a minimum, Cappmore FX is committing securities fraud.
If Cappmore FX was legitimately trading at a minimum of 8% to 10% a month, why would they operate illegally by committing securities fraud?
If we combine Saksham Trading having failed, Cappmore FX committing securities fraud and its business model and marketing making no sense, we’re left with a fraudulent investment opportunity that is likely a Ponzi scheme.
As with all MLM Ponzi schemes, once affiliate recruitment dries up so too will new investment.
This will starve Cappmore FX of ROI revenue, eventually prompting a collapse.
The math behind Ponzi schemes guarantees that when they collapse, the majority of participants lose money.
