Tracking your fellow traders
More interestingly, there is now a Speculative Sentiment Indicator (SSI) widget attached to Trading Station Web 2.0. This widget tracks retail trading behavior and charts it for the users, enabling them to see new trading opportunities.
For many FXCM fans, this feature may seem like old news. The company launched sentiment indicator tools for clients a year ago, including regular twitter updates that track traders’ behavior. There is still a level of novelty to today’s announcement, however, as this is the first time the tool has been integrated into one of the firm’s trading platforms.
Commenting on today’s updates, FXCM Group CEO Brendan Callan said: “Centralizing these resources inside the platform will allow traders to access everything at their fingertips when placing trades. Everything about the new Trading Station Web platform was created with the customer in mind.”
