The 4-page Offshore Broker List above , compiled by members of this Forum over the past twelve years, has been placed at the beginning of this thread, where it will remain.
On the Broker Aid Station forum, a discussion got started about trading through foreign brokers who are outside the jurisdiction of the CFTC. Then, in subsequent posts, we can talk about specific foreign brokers, and whether there are advantages to trading with them. Gensler set up a straw-man — the leverage limit — and we all bravely attacked and destroyed the straw-man, thinking it was the enemy. The CFTC never intended to impose a leverage limit on retail forex in the U.
From the very beginning, their objective was ; and they achieved their objective completely. Many reasonable folks, including several on this forum, have pointed out the hazards of using too much leverage, and have endorsed the new CFTC limit. Which misses the point entirely. It is not the proper business of government to regulate the way we live our lives.
It is not the proper business of government to tell us how many calories we may consume, or how much we may drink, or how much of our paychecks we may spend on lottery tickets, or HOW MUCH FOREX LEVERAGE WE MAY USE.
residents where they may do their banking, or where they may do their trading. forex brokers where they may set up foreign branches, or whom they may accept as customers in those foreign branches.
It is appropriate for the government to require brokers to furnish full and honest disclosure of the risks involved in forex trading, and to furnish full and honest disclosure of the terms and conditions of the trading accounts which they offer.
And it is appropriate for the government to prosecute fraud wherever and whenever it occurs in any of the financial markets. The CFTC has U. forex brokers by the throat: By threatening their ability to do business in the U. But, the CFTC has no authority over foreign brokers who operate entirely outside the U. See the Note, below. And under current law, the CFTC has no authority over individual traders who trade through foreign brokers that are beyond the reach of U.
S regulation. The U. government claims the authority, through the IRS, to require U. residents to report foreign accounts which we hold — bank accounts, brokerage accounts, etc. But, they cannot yet prevent us from having those accounts. The CFTC, and their sock-puppet the NFA, are behaving like the rest of the Nanny State: They are acting like our rulers, rather than our public servants.
These people seem to believe they have the right and the power to do anything they want to do. Soon after we began this search for offshore forex brokers, we discovered that the CFTC and other U. regulatory agencies have their tentacles deep inside many foreign governments, through a series of nasty, little agreements known as Memoranda of Understanding.
These agreements have effectively extended U. regulation to cover U. residents doing business in countries which have signed the agreements. There still are countries where these agreements do not yet exist — and we are eager to find reliable brokers within those countries who will do business with us. And there are a few offshore brokers, in Memorandum countries, who have the courage to defy the over-reaching U. regulatory authorities, and welcome U.
residents as clients — and we are eager to identify these brokers, and to consider client relationships with them. Earlier this week, I called ACM in Switzerland, and dbFX in New York, and specifically asked whether they are subject to CFTC regulation in any way, and whether they accept U. residents as clients. ACM Advanced Currency Markets, Geneva, Switzerland is completely beyond the reach of the CFTC.
They have canceled their plans to open a U. subsidiary it was to be called ACM-US , and they now have no U. ACM is regulated by FINMA in Switzerland; they have an application pending with the Swiss banking authorities to become a Swiss bank; and they welcome U. Here is the ACM website — Online Forex Trading Currency Trading ACM. dbFX is the retail forex brokerage division of Deutsche Bank. As a bank, Deutsche Bank is domiciled and regulated in Germany.
But, their forex operation, dbFX, is domiciled in the U. Deutsche Bank the German-domiciled bank has a large presence in the U. dbFX the U. I have placed my name on a list of people to be notified when that determination is made, and I will pass that info on to you, when I get it.
Here is the dbFX website — Forex Trading Online Currency Trading Rates FX Research dbFX. Have you looked at Dukascopy at all? I currently use DukC and like em as a broker. I spoke with them yesterday to make sure that the CFTC NFA crap would not affect my account. Hope all is well with you. I have pretty much deforumed if thats the word due to the fact that I have a fulltime job, as well as try to trade as much as possible, so something has to go.
I do check in now and then but nothing like 6 or 8 months ago when I spent hours a week reading and commenting. Glad to see you still over here.
dukascopy is not going to accept US clients, from what I was told. If you have any information to the contrary please let me know. Thanks for the info. I approached them a few days ago, and they said the wouldnt accept us clients. Maybe I was speaking to someone uninformed over there. I am going to call them again. It seems as though most of the AUS firms will continue to accept us clients, vantage, gomarkets, forex fs. Plus the two from panama forex-metal, and eforex. Additionally, while I understand the issue with us based companies with international affiliates having to comply with the CFTC.
What is the primary issue for non CFTC regulated firms refusing to accept us clients? If the CFTC has no jurisdiction, what could they possibly do? Does anyone know anything about liteforex I could not find any US locations listed on the website. I am interested in liteforex because of the small trade size allowed.
Clint I totally agree with your sentiment and frustration with our government making regulations under the pretense of protecting ourselves from ourselves. Its BS!! In reality a leverage cap should not affect a trader that uses any sort of risk management and has a few bucks in the account. The new regs as they are now will probably not affect my trading much. Its that dam slippery slope that has lower margin limits, higher minimum balances, limits on trade frequency, fees on transactions trades , and the big one even higher taxes at the bottom of the slope that has me worried and considering finding a way to move offshore.
Epic post Clint! Im a US resident and im moving out by FOREX account, due to NFA being a puppet! Edit: I would also like to ask: As a US citizen, is my capital covered by EU, FSA, FINMA regulations if the broker I choose is regulated with one of these institutions?
I was using this particular site mainly because it has a longer list of brokers over than any other site that I am aware of. These lists have to be taken as raw data, at this point. The brokers listed here may or may not meet your particular criteria for a forex broker.
For example, these lists have not been filtered for any of the following criteria: 1 are U. clients accepted? CMS Forex — Forex - Forex Trading - FX - FX Trading - CMS Forex UK.

In most cases, the brokers have furnished enough information that you can decide whether you want to take a closer look at them.
It supposedly allows you to search for brokers based on almost any criteria you can think of: country, language, regulation, type of platform, pip spreads, etc.
However, the search feature seems to search only the minimal data which has been displayed by the brokers themselves in their respective listings, and this leads to search results that can be bizarre.
For example, I filtered the entire list of over brokers with just two criteria: 1 brokers in the United States, and 2 brokers who accept U. Obviously, every broker in the U. accepts U. brokers, the search feature returned 51 broker names. So, those are the search criteria I used to compile the lists shown above. Too cool. Clint I just had a look at those banks you are not mistaken in your observation. to funny. Thank you for the list Clint. I am going to talk to as many as I can today, and get answers regarding US clients for anyone that is interested.

Across demographic groups, about half or more approve among women, younger adults, African Americans, Asian Americans, and Latinos.
Views are similar across education and income groups, with just fewer than half approving. Approval in March was at 41 percent for adults and 36 percent for likely voters. Across regions, approval reaches a majority only in the San Francisco Bay Area. Across demographic groups, approval reaches a majority only among African Americans. This map highlights the five geographic regions for which we present results; these regions account for approximately 90 percent of the state population.
Residents of other geographic areas in gray are included in the results reported for all adults, registered voters, and likely voters, but sample sizes for these less-populous areas are not large enough to report separately. The PPIC Statewide Survey is directed by Mark Baldassare, president and CEO and survey director at the Public Policy Institute of California. Coauthors of this report include survey analyst Deja Thomas, who was the project manager for this survey; associate survey director and research fellow Dean Bonner; and survey analyst Rachel Lawler.
The Californians and Their Government survey is supported with funding from the Arjay and Frances F. Findings in this report are based on a survey of 1, California adult residents, including 1, interviewed on cell phones and interviewed on landline telephones. The sample included respondents reached by calling back respondents who had previously completed an interview in PPIC Statewide Surveys in the last six months.
Interviews took an average of 19 minutes to complete. Interviewing took place on weekend days and weekday nights from October 14—23, Cell phone interviews were conducted using a computer-generated random sample of cell phone numbers. Additionally, we utilized a registration-based sample RBS of cell phone numbers for adults who are registered to vote in California. All cell phone numbers with California area codes were eligible for selection.
After a cell phone user was reached, the interviewer verified that this person was age 18 or older, a resident of California, and in a safe place to continue the survey e. Cell phone respondents were offered a small reimbursement to help defray the cost of the call. Cell phone interviews were conducted with adults who have cell phone service only and with those who have both cell phone and landline service in the household.
Landline interviews were conducted using a computer-generated random sample of telephone numbers that ensured that both listed and unlisted numbers were called. Additionally, we utilized a registration-based sample RBS of landline phone numbers for adults who are registered to vote in California.
All landline telephone exchanges in California were eligible for selection. For both cell phones and landlines, telephone numbers were called as many as eight times. When no contact with an individual was made, calls to a number were limited to six. Also, to increase our ability to interview Asian American adults, we made up to three additional calls to phone numbers estimated by Survey Sampling International as likely to be associated with Asian American individuals.
Accent on Languages, Inc. The survey sample was closely comparable to the ACS figures. To estimate landline and cell phone service in California, Abt Associates used state-level estimates released by the National Center for Health Statistics—which used data from the National Health Interview Survey NHIS and the ACS. The estimates for California were then compared against landline and cell phone service reported in this survey. We also used voter registration data from the California Secretary of State to compare the party registration of registered voters in our sample to party registration statewide.
The sampling error, taking design effects from weighting into consideration, is ±3. This means that 95 times out of , the results will be within 3. The sampling error for unweighted subgroups is larger: for the 1, registered voters, the sampling error is ±4. For the sampling errors of additional subgroups, please see the table at the end of this section. Sampling error is only one type of error to which surveys are subject. Results may also be affected by factors such as question wording, question order, and survey timing.
We present results for five geographic regions, accounting for approximately 90 percent of the state population. Residents of other geographic areas are included in the results reported for all adults, registered voters, and likely voters, but sample sizes for these less-populous areas are not large enough to report separately.
We also present results for congressional districts currently held by Democrats or Republicans, based on residential zip code and party of the local US House member. We compare the opinions of those who report they are registered Democrats, registered Republicans, and no party preference or decline-to-state or independent voters; the results for those who say they are registered to vote in other parties are not large enough for separate analysis.
We also analyze the responses of likely voters—so designated per their responses to survey questions about voter registration, previous election participation, intentions to vote this year, attention to election news, and current interest in politics.
The percentages presented in the report tables and in the questionnaire may not add to due to rounding.

A footnote in Microsoft's submission opens in new tab to the UK's Competition and Markets Authority CMA has let slip the reason behind Call of Duty's absence from the Xbox Game Pass library: Sony and Activision Blizzard have a deal that restricts the games' presence on the service. The footnote appears in a section detailing the potential benefits to consumers from Microsoft's point of view of the Activision Blizzard catalogue coming to Game Pass.
What existing contractual obligations are those? Why, ones like the "agreement between Activision Blizzard and Sony," that places "restrictions on the ability of Activision Blizzard to place COD titles on Game Pass for a number of years". It was apparently these kinds of agreements that Xbox's Phil Spencer had in mind opens in new tab when he spoke to Sony bosses in January and confirmed Microsoft's "intent to honor all existing agreements upon acquisition of Activision Blizzard".
Unfortunately, the footnote ends there, so there's not much in the way of detail about what these restrictions are or how long they'd remain in effect in a potential post-acquisition world. Given COD's continued non-appearance on Game Pass, you've got to imagine the restrictions are fairly significant if they're not an outright block on COD coming to the service. Either way, the simple fact that Microsoft is apparently willing to maintain any restrictions on its own ability to put first-party games on Game Pass is rather remarkable, given that making Game Pass more appealing is one of the reasons for its acquisition spree.
The irony of Sony making deals like this one while fretting about COD's future on PlayStation probably isn't lost on Microsoft's lawyers, which is no doubt part of why they brought it up to the CMA. While it's absolutely reasonable to worry about a world in which more and more properties are concentrated in the hands of singular, giant megacorps, it does look a bit odd if you're complaining about losing access to games while stopping them from joining competing services.
We'll find out if the CMA agrees when it completes its in-depth, "Phase 2" investigation opens in new tab into the Activision Blizzard acquisition, which is some way off yet. For now, we'll have to content ourselves with poring over these kinds of corporate submissions for more interesting tidbits like this one.
So far, we've already learned that Microsoft privately has a gloomy forecast for the future of cloud gaming opens in new tab , and that the company thinks Sony shouldn't worry so much since, hey, future COD games might be as underwhelming as Vanguard opens in new tab.
