well1stly its illegal in SL..... If you are residing outside it can be done, but remember the trading you do on internet is speculative nature and its called OTC (over the counter). so basically its like gambling. Also there is commodity trading ex gold,silver,natural gas,oil,sugar etc.....all these are speculative as you would be buying and selling OTC. since you will not get GOLD or any other commodity physically they are called OTC.

There are brokers who facilitate you to trade using their platforms......most favourite is metatrader4 now metatrader 5 is also available.Tradestation/webtrader to name few. there are different types of brokers...

Market Makers/- They trade against you......
ECN - Good reliable they will not take the opposite trade of yours.

Some brokers allow trading stocks as well...but as i said all in the form of OTC.

Usually you will have to deposit in dollars...... and the trading will be immediate ..also some brokers give 100% bonus on teh 1st deposit....

Also PIP rebates (diff between the spread known as PIP eg if EUR/USD BUY 1.3010 SELL 1.3012 = 2pips) are immediately credited back to your account upon trade closing.....

Forex trading brokers gives you 100%,200% 300%.....500% margin trading.....this will kill you .....and you will loose quickly if you are on the wrong side of the bet.


But my advise is dont trade Forex Trading.....invest that money in CSE.FT needs lots of skill...FT is mostly news driven which means you need to be aware of economic factors and their impact on the currencies.

Knowledge is important....there is more to forex trading such as automated trading using algorithmic patterns, but its too much to explain all this here.

As final thought please i would advise you dont trade you will loose eventually as it is known 95% are looses and only the 5% make the CUT.

Please note we are not encouraging this form of trading for srilankan citizens,as per CBSL its illegal...i mean ILLEGAL.
And I think this is the view of SLEF as well.So we do not want the forum to get into problems with the authorities....So Please refrain from this type of trading since its not for srilankans.

As per CBSL only few banks are authorized to carry forex trading for its clients...ithink HSBC is one i presume.

some one could confirm to it.but you will require a large amount of $ in your account.And the risk is huge.if you are willing take.

So stay away..... rabbit

I know many who do FT here but they say: always trade 2 or 3% max any one time of your total equity(eg $100 =2% = $ 2.00-Rs.260.00.Keep your profit target double =$ 4.00.)This way its like lose trade one step backward , make profit two steps forward. All web tutorials advice this 2:1 ratio for FT).The reason CB is not allowing is to protect the public.Thay say people lose due to ignorance and not practicing on a demo account till you are skilled & confidant.The web is full of free schooling & YouTube has great FT videos.
I hope i haven't offended this forum by Fx Trading info but interestingly a friend,in the CSE for 20 years advising & consulting)) says similarly the SL stock exchange is actually understood by only 3% of Sri Lankans.Thats why people are still scarred still sins they here lot of bad stock mkt losses.

Finally I think what the general public get for fxd deposits is a rip off since with inflation theres no real gain.-Ash

It's very easy to lose money on trading than earning unless u're smarter than the average participants.

You should control your risk with effective money management principles while protecting your capital.

yes0 has been promoting some illegal forex stuff on another post as promotional activity so had to ban him for couple of days.
Anyone using this site for cheap promotion will also be banned without warning. Pls do use the site for knowledge acquiring and sharing..

TAH u can continue to educate the members on forex since ur style doesn't harm the forum ethics. Dont cross the line though.

I do not want to talk about Forex Trading...because its not good for the forum. The last thing we need is some legal complication for the EF.

There is a misconception.............., that trading in  foreign currency  is illegal.

If you have earned foreign currency(FC) , through employment, export of goods /services you are permitted to maintain  a FC account  ( by way of NRFC, RFC ,FCBU  account with a commercial bank) and  there is no domestic law to prevent you  using  that money for  FC trading or any other FC transaction.  

What is illegal is the use of Sri Lankan Rupees for FC trading.  Not only for FC trading, use of SL rupees for any type of FC transactions, other than the transactions  allowed by Exchange Control Act , is illegal in Sri Lanka.

No one said its illegal but the fact is that there is no legal basis in Sri Lanka for forex trade. Its a high risk trade even for experienced people. Sure way to loose hard earned foreign exchange.
