10 Reasons You Should Trade With a Regulated Broker In UK

Personal_Finance / Learn to Trade Nov 24, 2020 - 10:10 AM GMT

By: Submissions


When it comes to your hard earned money it pays to be cautious and calculated with how you utilize it. If you are planning on investing in forex markets, or any other markets for that matter, it is essential that you get the services of a regulated broker. You want your money to be earning you more for the future, and that means you have to take care of it.

You have an overwhelming number of options for people and services to help you access investing, but not all of them will be equal. There are regulated brokers everywhere for a reason, as they offer a lot of perks and security for the average investor.


The most common sense reason to acquire the services of any broker is to gain access to the markets you wish to trade on. Without the access to buy and sell, you would find yourself at a major disadvantage. Regulated brokers, especially the more prestigious ones, are going to offer you the most options for trading in general, as well as options that are more difficult to find.

Guidance and Education

This area is especially helpful for people who are relatively new or inexperienced with forex trading and could use some help. With a lot of regulated brokers you are going to be able to utilize a variety of different training and educational tools, as well as market research. This can be invaluable for newer and veteran traders alike, as it never hurts to know more when it comes to your money.

Trading Platform

If you choose to go with an unregulated broker you cannot be guaranteed that you will be able to use a decent trading platform. A lot of unregulated brokers don’t get the licensing to save costs, and this cost saving measure will certainly apply to the platform they use as well. You will benefit from a trading platform that is user-friendly, and has a host of options available, which you can get through a regulated broker.


You can’t be too safe when dealing with your money, so security should be at the top of the list of priorities. Regulated brokers have set rules and standards that they must follow, along with technologies to keep your information secure. There is minimal risk for fraud or overall shady practices when you choose from an ECN brokers list like this. It pays to make safety and security take precedence over a lot of other things.

Regulatory Body

As mentioned above, any regulated broker you go with is going to have licensing from a governing body. Depending on where they choose to do business, the regulatory body will differ, and some are much more powerful than others. Just know that if your best forex broker uk  has a license, you have the presence of a larger entity on your side.

Mandatory Risk Warning

One thing that a lot of traders may not think about in the heat of the moment is risk. People can very easily get wrapped up in the thought of making big profits, and then not realize that they could likely lose it all. Regulated brokers are required to ensure that you are aware of any risks you are taking before making trades, and this could be just enough to save people from themselves.


You cannot see into the future, and neither can brokers, and sometimes brokers go out of business or have other issues that affect your investments. Every major regulatory body has some form of mandatory insurance that brokers must carry. This means that you will be able to sleep a little easier and know that your investments are safe from anything that may happen away from the markets.


Leverage is not something that the majority of currency trades are going to worry too much about, but it is a great option to have. A regulated broker is going to give you access to some form of leverage that will allow you to basically borrow from them to gain a larger piece of action in trading.

Currency Pair Options

A lot of this is going to come down to personal choice, but not every broker is going to offer the same currency pairs for trading. You are going to want to ensure that you go with a regulated broker as they will have access to more options than anyone who is unregulated.

Customer Service

Most regulatory bodies around the world are going to have some set rules regarding clients access to customer service. This is most likely going to include access through phone, email, and in-person visits in most cases. It is always nice to have a real person to help tackle tough issues with trading.
