You will be hard pressed to find a more highly respected forex and CFD broker in the market than OANDA . The firm, established in 1996, was one of the original pioneers that toiled to make retail  trading a reality for the general public and quickly leveraged its early successes to become an industry powerhouse.

Through its now global consortium of forex and CFD-related corporations, it provides a diverse range of currency solutions, ranging from trading to exchange rate data and information. It serves its ever-expanding global customer base with subsidiaries in the U.S., the UK, Japan, Singapore, and Australia, in addition to its headquarters in Toronto, Canada, and complies with regulatory oversight in each of its office jurisdictions.

Along the way, OANDA has garnered many industry awards, such as “Best Customer Service” and “Best FX Retail Platform” in 2018. The firm also accepts U.S. clients, but limits their trading to forex.
