Recently, the US business of Forex.com also underwent changes, following the transfer of clients from FXCM. GAIN Capital entered into a definitive agreement to take over FXCM’s US retail FX clients on February 7, 2017, with no upfront payment having been made, but the value of the deal instead depending on the trading activity of the newly acquired customers. In late February this year, Forex.com published an announcement about NEW Advanced Charting. The service is brought by TradingView, the financial visualization platform. TradingView’s advanced charting offers a flexible user interface and includes various line drawing tools, more than 50 customizable indicators, and advanced candlesticks including Heikin Ashi.
Earlier this week, TradingView said that it had taken its partnership with GAIN Capital to another level by establishing a trading connection with Forex.com.
