I've moved to USA couple of months ago and hope will stay here for a long term.
I wish to trade on Forex and as I know there are som especial regulations regarding US residents trading on Forex, so which broker should I look at, or maybe there is some good topic regarding Forex Trading for US residents that I ought to read?
Thanks for your help in advance, have Happy New Year!
You have few choices. I would recommend you talk to Justin Hertzberg at Froest Park FX. He is an IB for almost all US brokers and can get you to the best broker for your needs and also get you discounted pricing. I've been using him as an IB for FXCM since June and been very happy.
If you don't need MT4, I would highly recommend Interactive brokers. Low comission, very often positive slippage on limit orders, inkluding TP. Fast execution, and full transperency (including what liquidity provider matched the order), gives you max leverage that US regulations allow. Used them for half a year myself.
Tallinex is great has been working great with me and send you email updates in everything you need at the end of the day on a daily even you p/l to the trades you put in I highly recommend it, took me forever to find a broker suitable for myself but at the end it was worth it now I can say I trade in peace

Hey, not sure it would be new Booster, due to specific requirements to US residents all brokers ask for the minimum of 2000$ deposit, I can not afford this amount to risk. :)
Regarding Tallinex - this broker is in offshore zone, meaning it is not regulated by any 'good' authority, so why should I open account with them when I can open one at regulated broker? For example FXCM, recommended couple of posts above is much better regulated broker with the same requirements and commissions.
I cannot reccommend LIVE account yet, but I have tried out some latency arbitrage trading on Vipro Markets (www.vipromarkets.com) and on LMAX feed it works very well. I am personally a Greek so you would have to check with them if they accept also Americans.
