One of the most important components to look for when choosing a broker is whether or not it is covered by a regulator. The rise in forex brokers has grown that many of them are operating without any regulation or a legitimate supervision. Regulatory bodies are given the task of acting as watchdogs for their own respective markets and providing financial licenses to organizations which are considered in good standing and have an ample amount of funds to run a brokerage business. Since the number of forex trades continue to grow, the need of higher scrutiny and regulation has also heightened. The regulation process is difficult and can take a long time to complete, which is why several brokers have chosen not to bother themselves with undertaking it. What makes the process demanding is that the regulatory environment is not the same in all locations. Different territories have their own set of individual rules and legislation corresponding to the regulation of financial services in that particular country. Non-regulated Brokers The largest risk of non-regulation involves illegal activity and schemes. Fraudulent activities include steep commissions by customer accounts, high-pressure “boiler room” tactics, Ponzi schemes and misrepresentation. CySec, FCA and MIFID The most widely-recognized forex regulatory bodies in Europe are the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC). These organizations cooperate with the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive, or MiFID, which allows forex operators from one EU country to operate business with all other European Economic Area (EEA) countries. A broker that claims it is regulated in the European Union means that it follows MFID rules. The extent of forex regulation varies among countries, therefore regulation in one territory could be more strict compared with others. MiFID regulation grants traders with security to some extent but at the same time it does not cover all measures. It provides the need for an amount of mandatory investor compensation through a refund of deposited funds just in case the brokerage claims bankruptcy. It also summaries minimum capital requirements needed by the broker as well as the need for segregated client and operator funds. Several brokers prefer to set up their business in Cyprus under the CySec regulation due to many reasons. The rate of corporation tax is at its lowest in the EU. Since the financial sector is big and advanced, forex providers see the business environment as quite advantageous. Furthermore, since Cyprus is a member of the EEA and the EU, Cyprus-based forex operators are directly under MIFID regulation. United States The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) under the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA) has jurisdiction on leveraged forex transaction offered to retail clients and allows regulated entities to act as counterparts for transactions with retail customers. All online forex dealers must be registered and should meet financial standards by the National Futures Association (NFA). The U.S. has one of the tightest regulatory structures in the world. Due to its heavy regulation, only a few foreign brokerages are allowed to do business in the country or offer trading opportunities with those who reside in the U.S. United Kingdom Forex brokers can choose to be regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) or be registered with the Financial Services Authority (FSA) UK. The EEA Authorized status is offered to companies that are authorized in another European Economic Area (EEA) state and was given a “passport” by FSA UK to provide cross border services to the nation’s citizens, according to MiFID. Russia As of the moment, Russia and other CIS countries do not have a regulatory framework for the provision of particular over-the-counter financial services, like Spot FX and CFD trading. RAFFM, the Russian Association of Financial Markets, is one of the self-regulatory organizations that was set up to protect clients to deal with unregulated brokerages. RAFFM has four member firms which makes it one of the smaller self-regulatory organizations. The Russian government is currently working on regulating the provisions of retail forex and CFD trading in the country. Australia The regulation of retail forex is in the hands of the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC). Brokerages must acquire an Australian Financial Services license. Turkey The country’s regulatory agency, Capital Markets Board (CMB), or Sermaye Piyasasi Kurulu (SPK) in Turkisk is also strict and only a few forex brokers have met its criteria and received permission to operate in Turkey. Belize Belize grants tax benefits and provides regulation under the International Financial Services Commission (IFSC), which offers traders basic protection clauses and has stringent accountability demands of FX brokers. Israel The Israeli Securities Authority (ISA) introduced new regulatory stipulations to tighten reporting, provide transparency, limit leverage and other conditions. New regulations were recently introduced which helped bring Israeli regulation in line with regulatory definitions elsewhere in the world. Companies that are regulated in other jurisdictions are also required to obtain an ISA license if they wish to seek customers based in Israel.
Selecting a top-quality forex trading broker is a critical factor in becoming a successful forex trader. A forex broker must be reputable and capable since this is the person or business that facilitates interaction with the forex market. Ensure that the broker is recommended by many clients who have shared positive experiences with, otherwise you’re taking a chance with using a forex broker that might not be worthy of business. If you don’t have a quality forex broker then you can’t take advantage of the profitable trading opportunities. The majority of forex traders these days use an all-online forex broker. It is generally considered as a good thing, however there are several online forex brokers who are not on an equal level of service and technical capability compared to other online brokers. Therefore, you need to ensure that you have thoroughly done your research by listing pros and cons. It is highly important that your forex broker has the capability to provide service whenever the market is open. Not having technological means can be extremely risky especially when periodic forex trading platform “crashes”, which usually takes place during highly volatile market conditions. Some of the best trading setups form in quick moving, volatile market conditions, so you should be prepared at all times. The best forex broker will ensure you that they have the technological capability to be online during all market conditions. These brokers also ensure you that they offer excellent customer service. Brokers should attentive, friendly and helpful at all times. Do not settle for anything less. Remember to do your research and speak to other brokers ahead of making a decision. Types of Forex Brokers Forex brokers range from illegal trading floors to international-acclaimed brokers that have direct access to the market. Below is a list which will simplify and direct you towards several types of forex brokers: Dealing desk forex brokers (DD) Often known as the “market maker”, this means they can quote their own prices and would usually trade against your positions. In turn, your losses are gains for the broker or one of the broker’s clients. Most of the trades are done using the broker’s own liquidity. These brokers make profit on the spread, which is the difference between buy and sell prices for a currency, and will not receive commissions. As a market maker, these brokers set their own fixed price quotes and at times the said prices can differ from actual market prices. Traders are often not passed onto the interbank market to be paid. No dealing desk forex brokers (NDD) No dealing desk brokers allow traders to buy directly through the interbank market, which means the broker connects two parties on the interbank market that want to make opposing trades. Trades are processed through the broker’s electronic platform. There are two major types of NDD traders which are the STP and STP + ECN brokers. STP means Straight Through Processing which means that the broker offers digital trading by the interbank market without interfering with trades. Electronic Communication Network or ECN, means that the broker provides real-time order book data, which raises the transparency of trading. Retail forex brokers (market makers) These are the most commonly used, especially by rookie traders. Accounts can be created online and deposits as small as $100 can be made. Be advised to look around and determine what each broker offers. Find out factors like live support or instant buy/sell into the market since some might have a delay depending on their market access. Institutional forex brokers (market makers and non-market makers) Institutional forex brokers (market makers) use a sales angle that has more direct access to the market. However, this requires a big amount of capital in order to begin trading. This broker can be perfect for rookies but due to the large capital requirement, they are usually put off until the person obtains a large amount of cash. Institutional forex brokers (non-market makers) can only be accessed if you are working in a bank or the likes of it. A huge number of international banks trade in this form where access is direct to the interbank market. Spreadbetters Spreadbetters are currently only legal in selected countries, which does not include the United States. Profit is made on their winnings and they make money on the spread between two currencies. They also offer the ability to trade other products such as stocks, indices or commodities.
In forex trading, moves tend to work with particular trends such as consistent movement in one direction, then a pullback and consistent movement in the other direction. Using trend lines can give you the advantage as it shows you information which can be used together or separately. Using the information you were given can help you form a trading strategy that is based around it. Trendlines Trendlines can tell you the direction, speed and strength of the current price action as well as potential support or resistance of the movement in the future. Prior to using the trend lines, fully understand them and only then should you base the trading strategy around it. Trendlines can only be used to your advantage when they are accurately done. Trendlines are an efficient tool for analyzing the market. They can signal when the period of pullback, which is the movement against the trend, is over. It can also show you to the acceleration or reversing of a trend. Using a trendline To draw a trendline, the major highs and lows must be connected. To confirm a trendline, there must be three tops or bottoms. When drawing one, the trader needs at least two. Just like any other indicator, the more it is tested, the more reliable it can be. The steeper the trendline, the less reliable it is. Trendlines must not be used on their own, it's important to follow the pricing along with the trend lines. It is imperative to fully understand the way price action and trends work in order to completely utilize trendlines. Since prices are constantly changing, trendlines can be used to simplify charts or even noise out some of the continuous activity. This allows you to focus on what is important.
