Recently, Forex has become increasingly popular in many countries, especially in the countries of the Union of Independent States. The reasons for this popularity are quite simple - this is the desire to earn more, the prohibition of casinos, the lack of a developed stock market.

The most prestigious and authoritative is obtaining a British license (along with a US license). The UK has earned its status due to the strict regulation of the financial market.

The main supervisory authority for all financial service providers in the United Kingdom is the Financial Conduct Authority. The work of the FCA does not depend on the government of the country, as it is financed by charging fees from members of the financial services industry. The Financial Conduct Authority has significant authority, including protecting the rights of consumers/customers in Britain, providing guarantees to market participants, and setting minimum product requirements.
