Most Forex brokers will convert your Naira to US Dollars, Euros, or British Pounds when you fund your trading account. However, if you wish to avoid currency conversion fees, NGN Forex companies provide trading accounts in Naira.
Your trading funds will be held in local bank accounts, making bank transfer deposits and withdrawals easier and faster. As such, only a few worldwide brands have NGN Forex trading accounts.
In this guide we take a closer look at the three best Forex brokers that offer naira trading accounts, along with excellent trading conditions and sound regulation.
Regulated by CySEC, the FCA and the FSCA, HotForex is available throughout Europe, the United Kingdom and in Nigeria. The broker’s STP execution on a No-Dealing Desk (NDD) results in lower spreads on all trades.
Nigerian traders can open a Naira trading account with HotForex. On the Micro Account, you can leverage up to 1000:1 with tight spreads. Both new and seasoned traders will benefit from the in-depth market analysis, and the company’s customer service is top-notch.
