Role of Financial Regulators in Forex

The role of the financial regulator is to ensure that businesses with a financial license adhere to the general framework of policies created mainly to protect the public. Brokers must provide transparency in reporting day-to-day activities, maintain enough liquidity to ensure that transactions are processed and must send frequent accounting reports to the regulator. Licensed online brokers possess a higher level of credibility over unlicensed operators.
