Malaysian Forex Brokers

An emerging market economy in Asia, Malaysia is a market with considerable potential for forex brokers. Forex trading in Malaysia is no longer illegal, however it is still a relatively new concept. 


Forex brokers in this country are formally not regulated, although the Securities Commission in Malaysia overlooks exchange-traded products, including securities and futures and how brokers operate in the country.


Meanwhile, the National Bank of Malaysia (Bank Negara), which is responsible for managing the local currency (the Ringgit), has also made a commitment to promote monetary and financial system stability and foster a sound and progressive financial sector.


As Islam is the official religion of Malaysia, forex brokers targeting local residents should offer special swap-free accounts. In fact, the Islamic Financial Services Act (2013) requires compliance of these services with the Sharia.


Many global brokers have already established offices in Malaysia (including FXCMXM and FXTM, among others), and even more have Malay versions of their websites, which would lead one to believe that they also have Malay- speaking customer support.
