Comparing Forex Brokers' Regulation and Security


Reviewing a forex broker may seem biased if you don't compare it to other brokers. In terms of regulation and security, there are at least two important things that you need to pay attention to: the regulatory status and how many years a broker has been serving its clients.

The following table gives an informative display of how a broker's regulation and security can be measured when compared directly to other brokers. Hopefully, this will give you a good insight in selecting a top forex broker to trade with.
