Brokers’ Update – Saxo Bank Adopting Arabic, eToro Offers Unleveraged FX

The Danish multi-asset broker would like the Middle East to switch to its proprietary SaxoTraderGO platform.

In our latest daily digest of news from across the global retail trading industry, we see that one broker is expanding its international reach while another is offering a less risky type of trading.

The social network eToro notified its clients today that from Sunday, (August 16), it will enable trading on all currency pairs available at eToro with 1:1 leverage (or in other words no leverage at all). This will enable eToro users to invest in currencies using only their funds, with no added risk factor due to leverage.

Saxo Bank has launched a dedicated Arabic website as part of its latest drive to encourage traders across the Middle East to switch to its proprietary SaxoTraderGO platform – a multi-asset trading platform the brokerage uses to rival MT4. The new Arabic website enables Saxo Bank’s clients in the region to review product and platform offerings, trading conditions, and training materials such as videos and PDF guides.

“Launching our new website will add value to our services in the Middle East by providing our multi-asset platform in Arabic and giving the opportunity to our investors to explore the possibilities and opportunities from a single account connecting more than 30,000 products in 40+ exchanges,” said Fadi Mehdi, Head of Saxo Bank’s office in Abu Dhabi.

“We are at the tipping point of a digital wealth management revolution that will find most retail and private banks unprepared. Platforms such as SaxoTraderGO are levelling the playing field between retail and institutional investors, and can provide the transparency and real time access to their finances across different devices that Arabic investors are looking for.”
