US Friendly Forex Brokers

us flag

Due to the recently approved Dodd-Frank Act, many forex brokers have decided to pull back out of the US markets and not to accept US customers anymore. This includes foreign forex brokers, many of whom made the decision to pull back from the US retail forex market to avoid possible legal issues. 

Since October 18th, foreign affiliates of US based brokers can only serves as counterparties to US retail customers if they themselves are registered with the CFTC (Commodity Futures Trading Commission). That would also mean complying to the new CFTC leverage rules,  that have set maximum leverage for US retail clients at 50:1 (20:1 for minors).

From July 2011 on, foreign banks will also no longer be permitted to serves as counterparties for US retail forex clients. 

These rules may change again in the future, but for now they cause both U.S based forex brokers and foreign forex brokers to pull back out of the US retail markets. 

Below is a list of forex brokers that are still US friendly.

Note: If you know of other forex brokers that are US friendly, or found that a broker mentioned in the list below no longer accepts US clients, please let us know by leaving a comment below.

HotForex no longer accepts US customers. I had a live account that I closed, and I tried to open another one today. American congress is a mess and Dodd-Frank needs to be repealed.
