Forex trading in United States is now a popular trend among most Forex traders. For US Forex Brokers to accept a client from United States, they must become registered as Retail Foreign Exchange Dealer (RFED) by the financial regulatory body, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and also regulated by the National Futures Association (NFA) as a Futures Commission Merchant (FCM). The official website of NFA is nfa.futures.org. You can also follow CFTC on twitter @CFTC

Verify CFTC Registration
It is a very important for you to first verify if a forex broker is CFTC-registered and regulated by the NFA. The first step is to identify the NFA ID number. On most of the Forex Brokers this number is located in the footer section of their homepage. Below is a text quoted from FOREX.com hompage.
FOREX.com is a registered FCM and RFED with the CFTC and member of the National Futures Association (NFA # 0339826).
The next step is to check the forex broker on the NFA website. If it is available check if the NFA id from broker homepage and the id listed in NFA website matches. Here is the NFA page for FOREX.com
