@Treeny, I think forums are better places to look for broker advises. Not sure if the recommendations on Facebook are legit. Twitter users though offer good advise on brokers. But I really count on Babypips to get opinion or gauge overall sentiment about brokers. For eg. there is a good article on regulation awareness, scam brokers list, recommended offshore brokers, etc. I don’t find the list of regulated brokers.
I’m using offshore one (TurnkeyForex) as a main account to escape the regulations, everybody knows why.
But you need to research and aware of the risks as well. If you pick a suitable broker, research it, test it, drill it, and then you can think about going live.
