FP Markets is a market-leading and well-established global CFD and Forex provider. As a specialist Forex & CFD broker with over 13 years’ experience, FP Markets caters for traders at all levels - from beginner, to professional traders. FP Markets understands that there are many options available for forex traders, which is why it has worked so hard to stand out from its competitors. Most brokers have a very similar offering with regards to execution speed and spreads etc. There is no centralised exchange in FX to regulate trading and there are various FX models that businesses can choose to employ - brokers can operate a B-book (no hedge), a B-Book and Straight-Through Processing (STP) (part hedge and part unhedged), or a complete hedge STP model. Therefore, trust, reputation and regulation are important factors in a client’s decision-making process when choosing a broker. FP Markets already enjoys an excellent reputation within the market for treating clients fairly and has its own ASLF under one of the most respected regulators in the world (ASIC), so clients can feel confident and secure trading with FP Markets.
