March 22, 2023 has been reviewing online forex brokers for over six years, and our reviews are the most cited in the industry. Each year, we collect thousands of data points and publish tens of thousands of words of research. Here's how we test.

In recent years, Poland has transformed from an emerging economy into a highly developed market, joining 25 other countries (such as the U.S., U.K., and Australia) that have attained “developed market” status with the FTSE Russell.

Regulation by the Polish Financial Supervisory Authority (PFSA) and the country’s robust capital markets have created an environment conducive to trading and speculating on forex, CFDs, and a range of other asset classes.

This guide will help you find the best, most trusted forex brokers for trading forex and CFDs in Poland in 2023.

CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. Between 65% and 82% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

About the Polish Financial Supervisory Authority (Komisja Nadzoru Finansowego)

The Polish Financial Supervisory Authority (PFSA), known locally as the Komisja Nadzoru Finansowego (KNF), is the national regulator of financial markets in Poland. The PFSA oversees banks, brokers, and the broader capital markets. In addition to regulating local markets and forex brokers, the PFSA also regulates certain activities of Poland’s main exchange, the Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE), following the provisions made to the 2005 Act on Trading in Financial Instruments.

Originally founded as the Warsaw Mercantile Exchange in 1817, the Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE) was formed in 1991 after significant regulatory changes helped transform Poland’s financial markets, and in 2010 the company behind the exchange – Giełda Papierów Wartościowych w Warszawie (GPW) – was listed on the WSE. Today, the Warsaw Stock Exchange is self-governed with the majority of voting rights retained by the State Treasury.

How to Verify PFSA Authorisation

To verify PFSA authorisation, you can search among 4,000 brokers to discover authorised entities in Poland on the PFSA’s official site.

We’ll use XTB (check out our full review of XTB) as an example to demonstrate how it works:

  1. On the PFSA’s “Entities Search” page, search for the keyword “XTB”.
  2. Click on the official entity name for XTB Group (XTB S.A.).
  3. This search will return the regulatory status of the broker, including its address and history of regulatory developments. Also included is a list of activities that the firm is permitted to carry out.
  4. The PFSA’s official website lists XTB S.A. as being authorised and regulated by the KNF (PFSA) in Poland.

It’s important to check the regulatory status of your broker before opening an account, and to make sure that the website of the broker is the correct URL (and not that of an imposter) before depositing funds for trading. Learn more about how to avoid forex scams.

Is forex trading legal in Poland?

Yes, forex trading is legal in Poland. That being said, it’s important to choose online forex brokers that are properly regulated to reduce your chances of falling victim to forex scams.

We research other trading costs, such as inactivity or custody fees, minimum deposit requirements, VIP rebates and/or discounts, and a range of other important fee-based data points.

Some of the other important research categories that are factored into our testing include mobile trading accessibility and capability, availability of market research and educational content, and each broker’s overall Trust Score.
