Best Forex brokers US

Despite having the most traded currency in the world, surprisingly the US doesn't have the most brokers registered under their legislation (rather 4 out of the top 10 Forex brokers are located there). However, with the New York city being one of the largest world financial centers (an average of $904 billion USD traded daily), a broker registered under the American laws gives definite confidence to investors, and that’s the main reason why many brokers would want to obtain a license to operate in the US.

In order to operate in the US, a broker must be registered with the SEC - Securities and Exchange Commission, and in addition, depending the products offered, with the National Futures Association (NFA) and with the Commodities and Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). Full compliance with highest standards imposed by those regulators is quite difficult to accomplish, yet again we're talking about highest financial security offered in return.

Some of the major brokers registered in the USA are listed on the NYSE, which also boosts confidence among clients. Choosing a US broker is a default options for a serious investor.
