Australia has quickly become a major center for forex brokers trying to tap the Asian markets. As operating in China is forbidden (more or less) and Hong Kong license is both limiting and expensive, Australia stands out as the only stable location for forex brokers looking both for sane regulation and ability to support Asian clients in their time zones.
