As one of the largest retail forex brokers based in the U.S., GAIN Capital's Forex.com offers forex traders a reliable, transparent and high-quality platform. The research and educational tools provided go beyond many other retail forex brokers, while the company's commitment to keeping its rates at or below industry standard spreads is commendable. Retail traders will find the broker more than adequate to suit their needs with a number of unique features that are hard to find elsewhere, but institutional traders may instead want to consider the company's GTX Forex ECN product for more direct market access. While this product caters directly to institutional clients, it's not yet as popular as some other options.

To get started, interested traders should open a free demo account with Forex.com in order to familiarize themselves with the platform. The company's array of educational resources also provides a valuable starting point for those new to forex trading.
