“The Turkish market is relatively advanced compared to its peers, however we have lacked a gathering like today’s that gives all participants an opportunity and engage with each other. I also believe that this event helps the overall market Friday was local traders can learn about advanced systems and the latest trends impacting the market,” added Mehmet Ozgur of IS Invest in an exclusive statement to Forex Magnates.
Indeed, many individuals are eying future growth in Turkey though not without its challenges – according to Andrew Ralich, Co-Founder and Principal at oneZero in a statement to Forex Magnates, “the infrastructure lacks certain components when comparing it to other emerging markets, however with the type of developments and implementation of systems we can see Istanbul developing a stable Eco-system to play a string role in the region.”
