ForexBrokers.com has been reviewing online forex brokers for over six years, and our reviews are the most cited in the industry. Each year, we collect thousands of data points and publish tens of thousands of words of research. Here's how we test.

Trading forex (currencies) in Mexico is popular among residents. The primary regulator for Mexico’s capital markets is the Comisión Nacional Bancaria y de Valores (CNBV). The CNBV aims to promote the stability of the financial system and protect investors while overseeing and regulating financial institutions such as banks, finance firms, stockbrokers, and mutual fund companies.

Though the CNMV has not yet established a regulatory framework for forex brokers, it periodically distributes warnings to the public advising against dealing with unregistered and/or unregulated brokers.

This is yet another reminder to choose a trusted forex broker that holds numerous regulatory licenses.

CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. Between 74% and 89% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

How does forex work in Mexico?

Mexico’s financial markets regulator - the Comisión Nacional Bancaria y de Valores (CNBV) - does not yet have a regulatory framework in place for forex, and has warned local residents against investing with brokers that aren’t licensed with the CNBV. It has also made it clear that it will not process complaints of customers that trade with such brokers. That means that if you trade with a broker that is not licensed in Mexico by the CNBV, you won’t be eligible for the same protections you’d receive with a local broker.

However, as local brokers don’t offer forex in Mexico, residents that decide to trade forex with a foreign broker should be sure to choose one that is highly trusted and holds multiple licenses in other countries.

Mexico’s financial markets

The Mexican national currency is the Mexican peso (MXN), which is subdivided into 100 units called centavos.

Forex markets and Mexican forex brokers are impacted by the monetary policy as regulated by the Central Bank of Mexico (BdeM), or Banxico, which is responsible for maintaining and preserving the value of Mexico’s national currency (the peso).

The primary stock market in Mexico is the Mexican Stock Exchange, or Bolsa Mexicana de Valores (BMV). Mexico is also home to the more recently established Bolsa Institucional de Valores (BIVA) exchange, founded in 2018.

Headquartered in Mexico City, the BMV operates cash, listed derivatives, and over-the-counter (OTC) markets for multiple asset classes that include equities, fixed-income, and exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

In addition to providing a listing service for stocks and stock derivatives, the BMV also offers various Mexican fixed-income products, as well as a unique product called a Title Referenced to Shares (TRAC). TRACs – somewhat similar to ETFs – are a kind of participation certificate traded on the exchange, which allows investors to buy or sell an index or portfolio of shares through a single stock. These exchange-traded products (or, certificates) aim to replicate the behavior of the underlying stocks or portfolios.

What brokers are regulated in Mexico?

There are nearly 5,000 financial institutions regulated in Mexico by the CNBV, including banks and brokers that offer access to the local stock exchange and derivatives markets.

Methodology

At ForexBrokers.com, our reviews of online forex brokers and their products and services are based on our collected data as well as the observations and qualified opinions of our expert researchers. Each year we publish tens of thousands of words of research on the top forex brokers and monitor dozens of international regulator agencies (read more about how we calculate Trust Score here).

Our research team, led by Steven Hatazkis, conducts thorough testing on a wide range of features, products, and services. We test all available trading platforms for each broker – whether they are proprietary or come from third-party providers – and evaluate them based on a host of data-driven variables. Our research team collects and validates thousands of data points each year.

We also take an in-depth look at each broker’s commissions and fees, such as bid/ask spreads – including the average spread data for some of the most popular forex currency pairs. We research other trading costs, such as inactivity or custody fees, minimum deposit requirements, VIP rebates and/or discounts, and a range of other important fee-based data points.

Some of the other important research categories that are factored into our testing include mobile trading accessibility and capability, availability of market research and educational content, and each broker’s regulatory status and number of held regulatory licenses.

All websites and web-based platforms are tested using the latest version of the Google Chrome browser. Our Desktop PCs run Windows 11, and we use MacBook Pro laptops running the latest version of macOS to test trading on the go.

We also test on mobile devices; for Apple, we test using the iPhone XS running iOS 16, and for Android we use the Samsung Galaxy S9+ and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra devices running Android OS 13.
