CFD Forex Brokers in the US are regulated by several different regulators, some of which are part of the US Government, and some of which are the industry’s own self-regulatory organizations. It is also important to point out that the United States is one of the strictest countries in the world when it comes to the regulation of CFD forex brokers. For this reason, many brokers don’t operate there, and many of the brokers operating in other countries don’t accept US residents as clients.
Among other things, US financial regulations strictly limits the amount of leverage CFD forex brokers can offer to non-professional clients. US-based CFD traders looking to take advantage of high leverage may therefore consider looking elsewhere for brokers that are more supportive of this.
