OANDA Japan to terminate offering of USD/SAR pair

Maria Nikolova

The currency pair currently offered on NY servers will no longer be offered effective mid-March 2020.

Online trading company OANDA Japan today informed its clients of its plans to cease offering the USD/SAR (US Dollar/Saudi real) pair. In a notice published on its website, the retail Forex broker says that 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. The specific date of the termination is yet to be announced.

OANDA Japan stopped accepting new orders for USD/SAR as of today.

There is no change regarding the offering through the Tokyo servers as USD/SAR is not provided through the Tokyo server.

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.
