My Top 10 Forex Brokers

Since launching my Forex blog (www.trueforexreviews.com), I have opened accounts with and traded through a number of retail Forex brokers. To be honest, most of these brokers have been disappointing but it has been a great learning experience and a lot of fun!

I thought it was about time to create a list of my top 10 retail Forex brokers. I have other top 10's available on My Top 10's page. The list is below...


#1 - Darwinex

Darwinex are a STP broker. They are highly transparent and offer the best retail trading experience by far. Execution is quick and slippage is at a minimal. They offer a great social trading feature and the opportunity to trade with client funds. Their customer service team is amazing. Darwinex offer Forex, indices and some commodities.

#4 - Oanda

Oanda thrive on transparency. They offer both CFD trading and spread betting. Their fxTrade bespoke platform is one of my all-time favourite trading platforms. They offer over 70 Forex currency pairs and a wide-range of commodities and indices - perhaps a wider range than any other CFD broker. Spreads are poor - they are more suited to swing trading. Oanda are highly regulated and have offices across the globe.
