Online foreign exchange (FX) broker FXTM has secured Hussein Al Sayed, who joins the group as its newest Chief Market Strategist for the Gulf and Middle East region with immediate effect, according to an FXTM statement.
Mr. Al Sayed is one of the more visible figures in the world of finance in the Middle East, namely in regard to his experience as a financial analyst and host of CNBC Arabia’s Bursat Al Alam Show. In his new role as the Chief Market Strategist at FXTM, he will help expand the broker’s global focus and brand within both the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and GCC regions. In addition, he will use his skillset to help provide trading and educational insights for FXTM’s global clientele.
While he is slated to become one of the paramount voices and figures of FXTM’s brand in the aforementioned region, he will also be retaining his role as the anchor of Bursat Al Alam for CNBC Arabia.

“In a short period of time, FXTM has become one of the market leaders within the industry; with a drive for excellence, transparency and credibility at the core of the company’s ethos. Joining FXTM is a natural choice for me because of the sheer quality of the award-winning market research team and the company’s commitment to providing the most expert analysis to the global investment community. Timely insights into what economic events really mean to traders are what the forex markets need on a daily basis, and I look forward to my new role immensely,” reiterated Mr. Al Sayed in an accompanying statement.
Late last month, FXTM made headlines after it launched a new Shares Account program, its specified account for share contracts-for-difference (CFD) traders interested in fostering a direct connection to several US exchange venues and a diverse share suite. The new account was designed to help customize CFD traders’ portfolio capabilities whilst streamlining them with connectivity to the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and NASDAQ, along with a robust suite of indices and shares.
