Trading forex (currencies) in Singapore is popular among residents. Before any fx broker in Singapore can accept forex and CFD traders as clients, they must become authorised by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), which is the financial regulatory body in Singapore. MAS's website is mas.gov.sg. We recommend Singaporean residents to follow the MAS on twitter, @MAS_sg.

How to Verify MAS Authorisation

To identify if a forex broker is regulated by MAS, the first step is to identify the register number from the disclosure text at the bottom of the broker's Singapore homepage. For example, here's the key disclosure text from CMC Markets's website,

CMC Markets Singapore Pte. Ltd. (Reg. No./UEN 200605050E.) is regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore and holds a capital markets services licence for dealing in securities and leveraged foreign exchange, and is an exempt financial adviser.

Next, look up the firm on the MAS website to validate the register number is, in fact, legitimate. Here is the official MAS page for CMC Markets Singapore Pte. Ltd..
