US citizen/resident trying to use cTrader to trade forex

Hello, I am trying to get into forex trading, I would love to use the cTrader platform, but can't find a broker that uses it and accepts US clients. I was also told by a CSR from one of the brokers that cTrader is no longer available to US residents as of 2016. Is this true? and if so could someone explain why? cause that seems like a shame, I have a practice account with it and it's such a smooth trading platform, makes thinkorswim look bad lol

What's the problem of cTrader with US regulations? as I can see it's not related to brokers, why at the bottom of the site we have this disclaimer:

"The services provided by Spotware Systems Ltd. are not available to citizens or residents of the USA. Neither is the information on our websites directed toward soliciting citizens or residents of the USA."

If it depends on brokers why you have added that disclaimer? why do you care? let the brokers deal with regulations or who they want to allow to use their service, you are not providing any financial service to anyone, Spotware is a tech company and there is no need for you to deal with CFTC or any other regulatory organization.

Spotware position regarding the US is very confusing, please remove these disclaimers or if there is something in cTrader that is not compatible with US laws then tell us.

Dear afhacker,

cTrader is compatible with US regulation and was available to US citizens at some point in the past. But at the moment there is no broker offering cTrader that is regulated to offer services in the US. As you know our motto is Traders First. Hence financial motivation is not our sole concern but also the interest of the traders that use our platform. In the same way we do not allow brokers to carry fraudulent activities using our platform, we do not allow them to operate in an illegal manner. Therefore we do not allow to brokers that are not regulated to operate in the US to onboard US citizens.
