How to choose a Forex broker | 5 Practical Steps

XEMarkets contest

There are two most common ways of choosing a Forex broker:

1) Simplified or "lazy way" — which is to read broker reviews, and based on stars and feedback make a choice.
There will be no guarantee, however, that a 5 star rated broker will be the best choice for your trading needs, or that the reviews you've read were actually genuine (unfortunately, that's the reality of online reviews submission).

2) Professional way — which is to do your own research while making reading reviews a part of that research.
We're going to describe the steps of making a professional choice:

Bitcoin train - why Forex Brokers might hesitate to Jump on?

Regulation concerns

Bitcoin Forex brokers

Forex brokers looking to work with Bitcoins face a few challenges, most of them are regulatory. In mid-2015 Bitcoin still remains unregulated and unsupervised. There is no central bank to regulate its flow and exchange. In addition, the Anti-Money Laundering questions remains unsolved, as Bitcoin users identity is veiled (they don't need to have bank accounts for holding Bitcoins, for example).

Combined together, those issues hold back some Forex brokers who would ultimately already adopt Bitcoin trading themselves.

Regulation attempts

In the meantime, there have been some intriguing developments, as Bank of America among the first showed interest in adopting digital currency transfers. As of September 17, 2015 Bank of America has successfully registered a patent to use Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ripple, Peercoin, and Dogecoin for fund transfer between accounts.
Another industry giants - Amazon and MasterCard - are also exploring the ways of working with digital currencies, and related patents have been also filed.

Meanwhile, Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) in the US confirms that Bitcoin is a Commodity, and hence CFTC has authority to control digital currency futures and options.

And so, the train gains speed, and time will tell, as for now, Bitcoin popularity grows, and so is our list of Bitcoin Forex brokers.

NFA (CFTC) ban on credit cards in the U.S. effective January 31, 2015

NFA credit card ban

US Forex brokers no longer accept credit card deposits

The time has come, and the earlier approved proposal on banning credit card funding for Forex accounts with US brokers is now in effect starting from January 31, 2015.

The official NFA documents can be found here:
CFTC approves NFA's prohibition of credit cards to fund retail forex accounts

US Forex Brokers

US Forex brokers... Most reliable?

Us based Forex brokers

You can put the question this way; becoming a US Forex broker isn't as simple as registering an off-shore brokerage.
The answer lies in the regulatory requirements. All US brokers must be registered with NFA (National Futures Association).
While registration itself isn't the issue, being a member of NFA regulated brokers group requires adherence to the strict NFA rules.

No expiration Demo accounts from Forex brokers

No expiration demo accounts are traders' most preferred accounts, since they save time and efforts when it comes to strategy testing over a long period of time.

Some Forex brokers will offer a demo account that will expire within 30 days no matter what. Some will keep your account alive as long as there is trading activity in place (although a simple pause of a few weeks might result in expiration).

The best option is to have a Forex demo account that never expires!
But Forex brokers like to keep their client databases clean & filled only with active users. We can't blame them either.

DMA Forex brokers | DMA (Direct Market Access)

DMA Brokers. What is DMA?

DMA - Direct Market Access - is a type of FX execution where traders are offered direct access to the physical market, enabling them to place trading orders with liquidity providers (leading foreign exchange banks, other brokers, market makers etc).

Sounds similar to STP and ECN dealing? It's close, but there is a difference.

DMA (Direct Market Access) is offered by ECN brokers and by some STP brokers.
In fact, ECN brokers always offer DMA, but not all STP brokers offer DMA. Let's take a look at the differences.

MT5 - Facts, Questions and Answers

January 18, 2011

An exclusive interview with Renat Fatkhullin, Founder and CEO of MetaQuotes Software Corp. for 100Forexbrokers.com

The goal of this interview is to address the most frequently asked questions that concern MetaTrader users nowadays.

Question 1: There are 3 distinguished groups among MetaTrader platform users: Forex brokers, traders with programming skills and ordinary traders. With the announcement and later the release of MT5 platform, the reaction from the ordinary traders group was the most vivid [mixed expectations, criticism etc]. What in your opinion has provoked such reaction among traders?

Introducing Broker (IB) vs White Label

What is an IB?

An Introducing broker (IB) is a simplest form of partnership between an individual (or a business company) and a Primary broker. The role of the Introducing broker is to solicit clients for the Primary Broker. By doing so an IB earns commission.

- NFA Glossary:
"Introducing Broker (IB) A firm or individual that solicits and accepts futures orders from customers but does not accept money, securities or property from the customer. An IB must be registered with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and must carry all of its accounts through a futures commission merchant on a fully disclosed basis."

The process of referring clients to the Primary Broker can be done in a variety of ways, but the key component of a successful IB
business is to have the means, contacts and influence on the trading audience. Who can become a successful IB:

Forex Regulation | Forex Regulatory Bodies

Like any financial market, Forex currency trading requires proper regulation. Every country has own governmental financial institutions & independent regulators that supervise and control the Forex industry and work to protect its investors.

Not all Forex brokers nowadays are regulated by appropriate financial regulators in their countries. It's important to pay attention to your broker's regulatory status, as it'll determine the level of security and protection of your investment.
