GKFX recently made headlines after it brought in former Alpari UK Chief Market Analyst, James Hughes, as its new Chief Market Analyst. Before joining GKFX in December 2015, Mr. Hughes had served in the same role of Chief Market Analyst at eToro for a period of ten months, which he had joined after the collapse of Alpari UK last January.
