OANDA Japan to stop offering SGD/HKD trading

Maria Nikolova

The broker will stop accepting new SGD/HKD orders from March 13, 2020.

Online trading company OANDA Japan plans to stop offering trading in the SGD/HKD (Singapore Dollar / Hong Kong Dollar) pair.

In a notice posted on its website today, the brokerage says the trading in SGD/HKD currently offered on NY servers will be discontinued soon. Clients who have open positions in this pair are advised to settle them soon.

OANDA Japan will stop accepting new orders in SGD/HKD from the start of trading on March 13, 2020.

As FinanceFeeds reported in February, OANDA Japan will also cease offering of the USD/SAR (US Dollar/Saudi real) pair. Trading in USD/SAR, which is currently available through the NY servers, will be terminated from mid-March 2020. Traders who have open positions in this pair are urged to close these positions in the near future, that is, before mid-March.

Speaking of OANDA Japan’s offering to its clients, let’s note the recent launch of MetaTrader 5 (MT5) by the broker. OANDA says it has been receiving traders’ requests for the addition of MT5 for quite a long time and was happy to respond to these requests.

OANDA Japan also offers trading on its fxTrade platform, as well as on MT4. Let’s note that OANDA Japan is one of the handful of Japanese brokerages that offer trading on MT4. Another example is Forex.com Japan.
