On this page, we have listed all forex brokers in Austria that offer stocks or stock CFDs for trading. This is indeed very common among forex brokers around the world, and most companies offer stocks from at least a few of the world’s largest publicly traded corporations. Most often, these companies include the American “FAANG” stocks, and sometimes a few major European corporations. In other cases, however, it could include thousands of stocks from around the world.
In Austria, as in all EU member states, forex & CFD brokers are jointly regulated by the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) and the national regulator, in Austria’s case known as the Financial Market Authority (FMA). Unfortunately for traders looking for high leverage, the European regulator restricts trading leverage to a maximum of just 1:5 for individual stock CFDs. For major FX pairs, however, the leverage limit is set to 1:30.
