• Please try to select the correct prefix when making a new thread in this folder.

    Discuss is for general discussions of a financial company or issues related to companies.

    Info is for things like "Has anyone heard of Company X?" or "Is Company X legit or not?"

    Compare is for things like "Which of these 2 (or more) companies is best?"

    Searching is for things like "Help me pick a broker" or "What's the best VPS out there for trading?"

    Problem is for reporting an issue with a company. Please don't just scream "CompanyX is a scam!" It is much more useful to say "I can't withdraw my money from Company X" or "Company Y is not honoring their refund guarantee" in the subject line.
    Keep Problem discussions civil and lay out the facts of your case. Your goal should be to get your problem resolved or reported to the regulators, not to see how many insults you can put into the thread.

    More info coming soon.

FPA Forums and Reviews Admin

The FPA has review pages for licensed Stock Brokers.

Many forex brokers offer stocks and stock indexes. These are convenient, but almost all are really just CFDs for stocks. With CFDs you don't own the shares. CFD spreads and prices often don't match prices for buying or selling shares directly from the stock exchange using a licensed stockbroker. Those price mismatches won't be in your favor.

Unlike many CFD brokers, real licensed stock brokers that trade on stock exchanges are licensed and regulated. Prices on exchanges are transparent, so the stockbroker can't easily cheat by padding their profits with fake slippage.

We've always had a few stock brokers in the reviews, since there are some real stockbrokers that also offer retail forex trading. The FPA has been adding other stock brokers to the reviews for several years now.
Since the FPA isn't widely known for stockbrokers, most don't have any reviews yet. This is where you can help your fellow traders...

If you've used any listed broker long enough to have a solid opinion of it, please leave a review. There are many licensed brokers from many countries that have not been added yet. If you use one that's not listed and want to leave a review, use the Add New Site button on the main Reviews listing.

It's usually simpler to signup with a stockbroker that's licensed in your country or region. I've broken them down by region and listing countries where one or more stockbrokers are already in the reviews. A few countries qualify for more than one region, such as Turkey, which has territory in both Europe and Asia. I've tried to do my best, but I'm sure I either have missed some or will mess up a few.

There are some very large ones that operate in multiple countries. In cases like that, they might not be attached to all the individual country links yet.

These links will help you find pages for stock brokers in your country or region. Click the location and you'll see which ones are already listed...

Jamaican Stock Brokers

I think I should take a boat to Jamaica, rent a nice little place on the beach, and then maybe think about checking out their offices.
