Trading forex (currencies) in Saudi Arabia is popular among residents. While recommended, forex brokers are not required to become authorised by the Capital Market Authority (CMA) to accept residents of Saudi Arabia as customers.
The Capital Market Authority is the financial regulatory body in Saudi Arabia. Website: https://cma.org.sa. We recommend Saudi Arabia residents also follow the CMA on Twitter, https://twitter.com/SAUDICMA.
The CMA, which was formed in 2003, regulates and develops the Saudi Arabian Capital Market. For a historical breakdown, here's a link to the Capital Market Authority webpage on Wikipedia.
