Forex Brokers

Most of these forex brokers listed here are great for beginners & some only require a small minimum deposit to start trading. Some offer free training and regular webinars to help with your education and to understand what the market is doing at the moment.

More advanced traders can find ECN, STP or NND brokers.

Here are some of my favourite brokers:

  1. AVATrade - New Offices in Sandton, a global broker with a local presence.
  2. - Offering a no deposit bonus worth R250 for new traders.

  5. Khwezi Trade - Cape Town based
  6. CM Trading - Claim to be Africa's biggest brokers
  7. FxPrimus - The safest broker to trade with (so they say)
  8. AxiTrader - The first broker I started with.
  9. Dukascopy - Swiss Based broker that offers STP trading
