OANDA started in 1995 as the first online provider of comprehensive currency exchange information and has since become the benchmark for corporations, tax authorities, auditing firms, and central banks.
The company launched fxTrade, the first fully automated online forex trading platform in 2001 which was the first platform to offer immediate execution, support trades and accounts of any size, enabling true 24/7 trading.
Just last week, OANDA rolled out a big update to its current portfolio and is now enabling hedging capabilities across its native fxTrade, MT4 and OANDA API offerings. The company also deployed a new trading engine called V20, which aims to enhance the client trading experience with benefits including up to 3.7 times faster execution encompassing CFDs, currencies and metals.
