Being an early adopter of Tradency’s Mirror Trader had helped Japan’s Invast Securities take a leading role in copy trading in the country. In a similar move, charting analysis firm Autochartist has announced that FXTrade Financial has become the first Japanese broker to launch its product on MT4. For FXTrade, MT4 is one several third party platforms as it also offers trading on the ACT Forex system as well as binary options through a white label with MarketsPulse.
While in much of the world MT4 is the staple of retail forex trading platforms, its use remains limited in Japan. This business model is partially due to many of the larger firms offering proprietary platforms as it provides them greater control of liquidity and handling of embedded programs. However, executives at brokers there have expressed interest in launching the platform. Similar to Invast, as an early adopter of MT4, FXTrade could benefit if a larger trend to favor the platform occurs within Japan.
