Interactive Brokers is a regulated international broker with access not only to Forex but also to stocks (I would say, its their main course of business), options (including FX options), and futures. Their only disadvantage is that they do not support MetaTrader platform. Other than that, I can wholeheartedly recommend them to experienced traders who need to diversify their trading. Especially, if you are looking to trade/invest in US equities or trade (both buy and sell) vanilla currency options.

Personally, I stick with MT4/MT5 brokers but interactive brokers are still a good option if that isn't a problem for you.

I opened an account there a few months back, but find it a little difficult and annoying to use. I tried to buy some stock on the French market and I had to 'request their permission' first and you generally have to jump through a lot of hoops.
They have a good reputation, but so far not really my thing. I way prefer CMC for purchasing stocks etc.
