Currensee today released an impressive set of business metrics which evidence its latest growth: Currensee’s clients have invested an impressive $12 million in its Trade Leaders program which has now traded $6 billion. This is quite an amazing number as $12 million deposits by any single IB is something that is not seen too often in this market, let alone when that IB has a completely unique business model which itself requires educating the market and extensive marketing efforts.
In our relatively small retail forex market I’m happy to see a growing confidence in innovative models such as this one and I’m sure that it’s just the beginning for the social forex niche.
BOSTON – June 23, 2011 – Currensee, (www.currensee.com), the alternative investment service that gives investors unique access to the world currency markets, today announced that $12 million has been invested by participants in its Trade Leaders™ Investment Program since its October 2010 launch, resulting in an impressive $6 billion in volume traded through the service.
Prior to the Trade Leaders Investment Program, the $4 trillion-per-day foreign currency (Forex) market was accessible only to traders who spent their time studying charts, predicting a pair’s next move and maniacally following the latest world news and economic trends. Even after all of this rigor, less than 30 percent of Forex traders actually make money from trading. This is why the Trade Leaders Investment Program provides an alternative service for investors who want to diversify from the stock market and access the world currency markets, but who may lack the experience, time or know-how. The program lets retail investors of all types automatically replicate the trades of some of the world’s most successful Forex traders, called Trade Leaders, enabling diversification into the Forex market, a truly uncorrelated asset class.

“I have always wanted to give currency investing a go but it seemed too complicated for a non-expert like me,” said Jeffrey Morris, an investor in the Trade Leaders program. “With the Currensee Trade Leaders program, I have confidence in the Trade Leaders in my portfolio and their trading styles. And I appreciate the fact that I still have complete control over my investing decisions.”
