There is so much competition in the forex market; many traders from all around the world and many brokers to match to increasing need of these traders. With a lot of them out there offering many wonderful bonuses, it can be difficult to choose the right broker. From so many years of trading the forex market, experts have come up with some things they believe are common among the best forex trading brokers.
WHO IS A FOREX BROKER?
A forex broker is one that grants forex traders access to the forex market through a trading platform. That is the basic responsibility of a forex broker, going deeper into the forex market will reveal more about brokers, but for a start, here are the things to consider when choosing a forex trading broker
- REGULATORY COMPLIANT:
The first thing to consider about any forex broker is their qualifications. The best forex trading brokers are schooled and certified as professional forex brokers, and are also registered with regulatory bodies that take care of any issues that may be “above the pay grade” of one’s broker. The regulatory bodies are at least national. Some are international, covering more than one country at a time. That a broker is regulatory compliant does not mean that the broker is the perfect one, it only means that he or she is not a scammer who may run away with you trade deposits and not ever be traced. Security is always important.
- TRADING PLATFORM:
In most cases if not all, the best a trader can see about his or her broker is their trading platform. So it is really important that brokers package their platform is a way that can market their services. The graphical user interfaces have to be legible and generally visually comfortable. The best forex trading brokers usually have well organized links to different things on their sites, and in places where they are easy to find too.
- TRADE EXECUTION:
There are two things in this case; how long it took to execute a client’s order, and at what price those orders were executed. Given to the nature of things in the financial industry, it is possible that the cost at which securities are sold differs from time to time. But under normal market condition, there is no reason for a broker to trade at a price far different from what is on display.
