Forex Broker News for April 2014

You can find and read the latest news and press releases from all of our partner brokers here.

If the recent lack of volatility or direction in the foreign exchange market has your trading participation down, FXPRIMUS invite you to start looking at trading Gold with FXPRIMUS. In just last week alone, Gold rallied almost $40 and had daily ranges in excess of $30. In case you weren't aware, FXPRIMUS is quickly emerging as THE place to trade Gold as it offers industry leading low margin of 0.5% on all Gold trading and razor thin spreads as low as 25 cents on their ECN Premier accounts. The low margin means you are able to trade 1.0 lots (100 ounces) for only USD500 and trade up to 100 lots (10,000 ounces) with a single mouse click.

As a special incentive to try trading Gold with FXPRIMUS, they have decided to offer commission free trading on Gold for the entire month of May 2014 for their ECN Premier customers. This means you get to enjoy the tightest spreads available in the market with no added commission.

If you have an ECN Premier account, you don't have to do anything, simply trade gold starting on May 1st and pay no commissions. If you would like to change to ECN Premier spreads you can login to your member area or open an ECN Premier account here.

In a constant pursuit towards diversifying its product offering, FXPRIMUS is pleased to announce the addition of Offshore RMB (USD/CNH) and Turkish Lira (USD/TRY) to its Variable and ECN Premier accounts.

CNH is an offshore version of the RMB introduced by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority and People's Republic Bank of China which allows investors outside of mainland China to gain exposure to the RMB. TRY, being the primary currency in Turkey has been in demand in recent months due to the volatility in Syria and concerns about policy of the US Federal Reserve, which leads to attracting money from emerging markets.

As noted, both new currency pairs will be available in Variable & ECN Premier accounts, but not in Fixed spread. If you do not see these pairs listed in your Market Watch, simply right click and select "Show All" and they should appear.

Adhering to clients' concerns and requests, HotForex are pleased to announce the addition of one new offering to their wide range of currency pairs. As a HotForex client, you will now have the opportunity to trade the USD/RUB pair. The pair will be available to all account types except FIX accounts.

With the addition of USDRUB pair, HotForex now offers traders access to 44 of the most liquid currency pairs in the foreign exchange markets.
