We only wrote about Ava FX announcing the launch of their new Australian office after receiving ASIC authorization yesterday and now we have more news coming from that continent: Admiral Markets, a large European broker with almost 20 billion in average monthly volume according to our survey, is too launching an ASIC authorized office.
Interesting to note is that Admiral Markets is going to launch of couple of new platforms called CFD Trader and EQ Trader (presumably equities trading platform) which shows how medium size brokers are trying to enhance their offering to clients.
One more major broker is about to announce the launch of ASIC licensed office very shortly. Australia is quite the hub for large forex brokers right now and the flurry of companies opening there will certainly create a healthy competition for local and regional traders.
