Whether you are in Cape Town atop Table Mountain or roaming through wine country or the Kruger National Park, South Africa is a “jewel” that most travelers fail to visit due to the long distance flight times required. Make no mistake about it, however, this country is connected to global commerce in a big way, and retail forex trading is just as popular here as anywhere else. The nation benefits from the infrastructure long established during years gone by and offers greater protection against forex fraud than what is available in most other parts of this region.

That is not to say that retail forex trading is a part of the mainstream in the country, at least not yet. While still at a very early stage, the finance sector of South Africa is one of the most liberalized and advanced ones on the continent and has the greatest potential for retail forex brokers. There are many well-established forex brokers, including many of the major banks in the country, with longstanding ties to Europe and the London trading establishment.
