Top Forex Brokers in Australia

Though ASIC regulates dozens of Forex brokers in Australia, traders in the southern hemisphere needn’t look only within their borders for the best brokerage.

Specifically, regional Forex brokers may provide market updates during the Asian trading session, stronger customer support availability during local trading hours and a connection with local banks. We’ve tested the top Australia Forex brokers and compiled our findings for your convenience.
