The global financial services industry has continued to evolve in recent years, with China now solidifying its place in the FX and technology space. As such, 2018 may very well be defined with the country taking the next leap – this potential will be on full display at the 2018 Asia Trading Summit in Shanghai on March 21-23.
Hosted by Finance Magnates, Conversion Pros, and premium Chinese FX news source, FX168, the summit looms as one of the marquee events of the calendar year. The summit will be held at the Shanghai Exhibition Center, aiming to build off last year’s strong debut, which saw over 5,000 attendees.

Blockchain technology – opportunities and challenges
Blockchain technology is not the newest development on the block but it has quickly become one of the most important, permeating virtually every sector over the past year. With the growing emphasis on cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology has helped open up a range of new opportunities for brokers and trading venues, which will be on full display during the panel. Is blockchain technology the key to a transparent future for the industry or simply a mirage?
AI is here: jobs on the chopping block?
Artificial intelligence (AI) has already made its mark on the trading industry, and yet it still has barely scratched the surface in its potential. While this means big things for brokers and trading venues, the prospect of free labor and advanced capabilities could herald the loss of thousands of jobs worldwide. Will robots or AI systems be replacing the traditional core elements of the trading industry? Find out what the future holds during the panel discussion.
Precious metals, FX in focus after new US laws
The Western world is in a period of flux with new regulations overtaking existing industries. In the US however, venues are grappling with the new tax laws passed by the Trump administration last December. The panel will delve into trading precious metals and FX markets in this new playing field. Will these new rules rekindle the FX industry or will the industry continue to see a consolidation?

Experts from around the industry will be lending their insight onto the matter – see what the pros have to say!
Stressing the importance of trading education
By virtually any metric, the more educated a trader is the more happy and successful they will be in the long-term. For this reason, trading education stands as one of the most important developments not just in China but globally. The final panel of the summit looks at how retail traders can stand to benefit from proper education and what venues can do to promote more awareness into the instruments they are offering.
