Japanese CFD & forex brokers are considered highly reliable and safe to trade with, although they cater mostly to Japanese traders and not so much to traders from other countries. CFD brokers in Japan are regulated by the country’s financial regulator, known as the Japan Financial Services Agency (JFSA).
The Japanese regulator is known to restrict Japanese CFD traders from trading with brokers based in other countries. This is one major reason why some international CFD brokers have chosen to set up companies locally in Japan, and this is also the reason why many international CFD brokers don’t accept Japanese residents as clients. Still, Japan has a large number of CFD traders within its borders, and many brokers are interested in tapping into this market.
