BNY Mellon may not be among the very top FX prime brokerages in terms of global market share, however its recent foray into South Korea by opening a trading room in Seoul is symbolic of its APAC aspirations.

Now is an opportune time for the island of Cyprus. Whilst CySec’s interest is to keep as many small FX firms in business and has encouraged binary options which has led to the spread of ICOs, the central government is looking toward moving the bucket shops out and moving the hedge funds and family offices in. Here is a great opportunity for the institutional FX sector
Plus500 states that cryptocurrency CFD trading only accounted for 15% of all revenues, yet user acquisition cost was massively reduced by being able to target cryptocurrency web traffic en masse. Either it’s popular, or it’s not. The proof is in analyzing the figures – so that’s what we have done

“To prevent financial risks, China will step up measures to remove any onshore or offshore platforms related to virtual currency trading or ICOs,” says China’s government via the state-owned People’s Bank of China.

After 7 years at Saxo Bank before co-founding Juno Markets alongside former colleague Arthur Le, culminating in his Partnership at MediaGroup Worldwide, Morten Fillipsen, a regular FX industry commentator and well known figure, has left the FX industry altogether for a leadership position at community powered wine marketplace startup Vivino
B book firms with no contact with customers and an automated model have more than stirred the attention of regulators with regard to how customers are onboarded automatically, as the correct asset class and trading environment for their risk attitude, as well as the ability to know the client and establish identity – a very important compliance requirement – is very ambiguous. We look at market connectivity and how it all works

“It is almost impossible at present for many brokerages to know whether they will have to completely start from scratch with new MetaTrader 5 platforms and a single server and if so, will this fit within the ideology of the brokerage in terms of product range and marketing.

Anyone hear tumbleweed?
