CFD broker TopFX attends Forex Expo Dubai: Focus on cTrader and technical analysis

Rick Steves

TopFX has exhibited at the Forex Expo in Dubai on October 19th and 20th as part of its expansion strategy across the region and meet market demands in the Middle East. 

The CFD broker, which has opened a Dubai office last year, was represented by a few executives, including CEO Alex Katsaros, Head of Retention Rachelle Matta, and Global Head of Sales Omar Al-Janabi, at the World Trade Center of Dubai.

The Forex Expo is the largest event in the Middle East for leaders and companies of the forex industry to network and explore new business prospects. Hundreds of participants were there to exchange industry insights for an audience of around 9,000 people.

TopFX executives focused on cTrader offering and technical analysis

At the Forex Expo, TopFX’s team met hundreds of visitors at their booth and focused its main message on their cTrader offering and on how the unique functionalities of the platform can help clients trade efficiently.

The industry momentum is in favor of cTrader, the trading platform that has rivalred with MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 for years, but is now the only platform among the two with its mobile app available on iOS devices.

TopFX’s Alex Katsaros is a former executive at Spotware Systems, home of cTrader, which puts TopFX in a top position for those looking to trade on cTrader as they are always one of the first brokers to apply platform updates.

On day two of the event, CEO Alex Katsaros held a workshop on the advantages of using Moving Averages as a simple but powerful trading strategy. His presentation focused on describing the strengths and weaknesses of the particular tool and how traders can utilise it on the cTrader Platform efficiently to analyse market trends.

TopFX executives will soon attend the Traders Fair in Vietnam, where they look forward to expanding their global footprint by conducting
international business and building global teams. Traders Fair will be held on December 10th.

FinanceFeeds interviewed Omal Al-Janabi and Alex Katsaros

In September, FinanceFeeds spoke with TopFX chief executive Alex Katsaros about the difference between catering to brokers and retail traders, how to launch an FX broker today, the iFX Expo Bangkok, and cTrader vs MetaTrader.

In a recent interview with FinanceFeeds, TopFX executive Omal Al-Janabi highlighted the company was expanding its offering into the retail trading arena. He also shared his thoughts on how attending trade shows might sound like a cost-effective way to build business. He added that TopFX plans to participate in many world-class expositions in many regions worldwide.

In addition to education, to be successful, Omar says any broker needs to build trust with clients by providing world class trade execution, pricing and customer service. Financial literacy, he continues, is also extremely important nowadays, so having the right tools, resources and knowledge about what’s going on in the market are more important than ever.
