Looks like FXCM doesn’t stop even for a second. Less than a month since launching another East European client with Czech Patria Direct using its Trading Station platform FXCM now expands into the Mediterranean and opens a local office in Greece which until now wasn’t a very known Forex hub. With the exception of Zulutrade and small AK Forex, Forex market was relatively underdeveloped in the region. Looks like this is going to change.
Athens, 2, March 2010 – Forex Capital Markets Ltd. today announces the opening of FXCM Hellas, its newest branch office in Athens, Greece (http://www.fxcm.gr). Intent on becoming the premier Forex and CFD provider to the growing Greek trading community, FXCM Hellas will allow traders to access the benefits of FXCM’s No Re-quote execution.
Athens marks the 6th new FXCM office opened since January 2009, following new offices in Paris, Sydney, Dubai, Milan, and Santiago.
Due to FXCM’s access to highly competitive prices from some of the world’s largest banks, FXCM offers Forex trading with no dealer intervention and tight spreads as low as 1 pip. FXCM’s commitment to excellent client service, fair execution, and tight bid/ask spreads are the guiding values it brings to the Greek market.
“Many traders in Europe are not yet aware they can trade FX without order restrictions, without re-quotes, and without interference in their trading strategies,” said Drew Niv, CEO of Forex Capital Markets, “the opening of our Athens branch marks another step towards our goal of reaching every corner of the European trading community with this simple message.”
Clients of FXCM Hellas will be provided with the award winning FXCM Trading Station (named Best Retail FX Platform by FX Week’s 2009 e-FX Awards), a user-friendly and flexible software package which allows traders to access currencies, stock indices, gold, silver and oil, all from one platform. FXCM Hellas will further provide client service, education, seminars, and daily market news and analysis tailored for Greek traders.
“As online trading becomes more popular in Greece, there is a clear demand for an FX provider with FXCM’s strong principals and dedication to excellent service” said Harry Coundouris, Managing Director of FXCM Hellas. “We are fully confident Greek traders will quickly appreciate the advantages of FXCM’s No Re-quote execution”.
