Leading Forex Regulators list by country

The forex market is huge, it is global and it is not restricted within any national borders. All these points about the forex market make it necessary to have forex regulators who will ensure that everyone gets a fair opportunity for making profits from this market. But, this doesn’t mean that there are no critics to the forex brokering industry.
While some critics claim that brokers knowingly make it difficult for you to make profits while trading in forex, others say that they spoil the forex market for honest investors.
