We explained in an earlier discussion how forex is regulated by government bodies in major financial centers around the world including the UK, the US, Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan.
Key advantages of trading with a well-regulated broker are:
- minimum financial and trading standards they must meet,
- ongoing monitoring by the regulators to ensure compliance,
- a framework for handling complaints from customers, and the
- power to enforce actions against regulated brokers for violations.
Since you live in Belgium, you may want to focus your search on brokers which are regulated in the UK by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
