Following a series of financial challenges, the forex and CFD trading platform Monecor (London) Limited, which operated under the brand OvalX, opted for voluntary liquidation in September last year. Stephen Cork and Mark Smith, the licensed insolvency practitioners from Cork Gully LLP, were entrusted with the responsibility of overseeing Monecor's liquidation process, according to a report by Finance Magnates.

The Collapse of OvalX

The collapse of OvalX underscored the complexities of navigating the evolving market landscape. Staff layoffs signaled the firm's underlying challenges, ultimately culminating in the decision to cease operations.

Following OvalX's announcement to close its business, clients were offered a lifeline by Capital.com. The notifications sent out to OvalX's clientele presented them with the option to transfer their accounts, positions, and funds to Capital.com. This move aimed to facilitate a smooth transition for OvalX's clients, ensuring minimal disruption to their trading activities.

OvalX's journey dates back two decades when it initially operated as TradIndex before being rebranded as ETX Capital. The firm was acquired by Switzerland-based private equity firm Guru Capital in 2020.

However, despite the funding from the venture capital firm Jump Capital, OvalX faced challenges. The transition to OvalX and subsequent ownership changes failed to address the company's underlying issues, eventually leading to its closure.
