It seems that Alpari isn’t wasting time trying to monetize its fresh partnership with Dukascopy. Alpari has a good reason too – it is not the only US broker to partner Dukascopy – FXDD was the first one. It is a two horse race against the time – who will get the most US Dukascopy’s clients and Alpari therefore just announced a no commission offer for month and a half for Dukascopy’s clients moving their accounts over to it.
This announcement arrives on the same day MIG Bank announces similar partnership with Penson Futures.
July 11th, 2011, (New York, NY) – On the heels of the recent partnership between Alpari (US), LLC (“Alpari”) and Dukascopty Bank SA (“Dukascopy”), Alpari today announces an introductory, no commission trading offer* for all U.S. Dukascopy clients. Those who choose to transfer their accounts to Alpari will be able to take advantage of commission free trading on the JForex platform until the end of August 2011. The commission structure thereafter will be in line with that originally offered by Dukascopy.
Daniel Skowronski, CEO of Alpari (US) comments, “We are confident that US traders who choose to move their account to Alpari will be pleased with the trading conditions and dedicated customer service which they receive. This no commission offer is our way of introducing Dukascopy’s valued customers to a positive trading experience with Alpari and saying thank you to those who choose to trade with us.”
