Best Forex brokers Europe

In Europe you'll find top Forex brokers (market makers/liquidity providers) in the world, including famous Swiss and German banks.

European currencies are traded in 49% of daily Forex operations. By taking only France, Germany and Switzerland we have around 600 billion USD traded daily.

Once operating in an European country, brokers have access to the whole European pool of clients which rounds 400 million potential clients on a fairly small territory, add up the confidence Switzerland, Germany, Sweden and other countries have built around their products and that’s why most brokers look for an office in Europe.

A EU license obtained in any of the European countries on the EU list, automatically opens the business door to all clients from other EU countries. And although there is no need to have one standardized license to operate in Europe, most brokers are properly registered and regulated with the Financial Supervision Commissions/Authorities in their respective countries.

Expect a good service from German, Swiss and Nordic Forex brokers. Consider banks for large investments for outstanding security and protection of funds, however, possibly with less flexible trading conditions.

*European Forex operations cover the entire continent including Switzerland, but exclude the UK, Cyprus, Malta, Gibraltar territories and other small offshore legislation.
