Gray Market” Forex Trading: Understanding the Basics

5 min read


A gray market Forex broker is an unregulated broker providing investors access to the foreign exchange market (Forex). Typically, gray market Forex brokers are not held to the same standard of regulation as other Forex brokers, or they may choose to operate outside of the regulations. They may guarantee high returns or promise fast and easy profits, but this type of Forex trading inherently carries a great deal of risk. Because of the lack of regulation, it is important to exercise caution when using a gray market Forex broker, and to make sure that the broker complies with the same regulations as other brokerage services.
