The Best Brokers that Take Indian Clients

The Indian financial sector is regulated by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) which monitors the legal framework for foreign exchange transactions. The RBI regulates and oversees currency trades and the Securities and Exchange Board (SEBI) is the principal regulator of the Indian stock market. The SEBI-regulated forex brokers are only allowed to offer INR-based currency pairs for USD, EUR, GBP, and JPY.

What to Look for in a Forex Broker in India

You are looking for a regulated broker that has a reputable financial regulator and has a robust reputation among forex traders. You want to make sure that your broker provides trading access to all major and minor forex currency pairs as well as other assets. You want a broker that offers tight spreads and provides solid leverage. You want to make sure that your broker can provide clients with insurance against negative balances.
