Forex Brokers Tiers (Full List)

Our rating of forex brokers is comprised of five tiers:

Tier 1 - A score between 80 and 100

Tier 2 - A score between 60 and 79

Tier 3 - A score between 40 and 59

Tier 4 - A score between 20 and 39

Tier 5 - A score between 1 and 19

Below you will find the major forex brokers ranked under five tiers, from best (Tier 1) to worst (Tier 5):

What does each tier represent? See below:

Tier 1 - The best of the best. Why settle for less?

Tier 2 - Good, reliable and honest. Good enough for most traders.

Tier 3 - Decent brokers, but nothing special about them.

Tier 4 - Poor quality brokers. Can give you headaches if you use them.

Tier 5 - Suspicious. Better to avoid, as there are plenty of safer options.

Since there are several high tier brokers, we think it is not worth the risk working with a lower tier one. While low tier brokers can also offer decent services, you will generally find much better conditions with those that are high rated.

We hope that our comparison will prove useful, and we wish you good luck in your trading activities.

Risk Warning: Forex and CFD trading is risky and can result in the loss of your entire investment. Trading with leverage involves risks that some people may not fully understand. It is not recommended to trade leveraged products unless fully understanding the risks. Never trade with money you cannot afford to lose.
