OctaFX has now decided to rebrand and adopt a fresh new look, with refined colors, space-inspired elements, and a new logo.

OctaFX is 11 years old and to mark the anniversary, the FX and CFD broker has lowered spreads by 20% on XAUUSD, EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY, GBPJPY, USDCHF, XTIUSD, and US30, as well as by 25% on BTCUSD and ETHUSD.

Throughout the last 11 years, OctaFX has reportedly executed over 1 billion trades for more than 12 million client accounts spread across over 150 countries.

OctaFX has a strong presence on YouTube, where it offers education material to more than 600,000 traders, having developed approximately 2,500 educational webinars.

The broker has removed swaps for all clients, added 30 cryptoassets, and supports 28 languages.

OctaFX shares core philosophy amid rebrand

In an announcement, OctaFX shared the core elements of its philosophy that explain its success next to customers.

“OctaFX is always online. The broker has already processed 8.8 million requests and dedicated approximately 96,800,000 minutes to resolving issues and answering the questions of its clients honestly and openly.

“OctaFX is always looking for ways to improve, and therefore analyses all feedback carefully. Identifying the problems traders face when using its services or functionality they wish the broker had is what guides OctaFX’s development. Apart from other significant changes, it managed to decrease the average verification process to around three minutes, with 85% of clients passing it on the first time”, said the statement.

“Constant change in the financial world is what keeps OctaFX agile and ready to transform and develop at all times. This approach resulted in releasing its own mobile trading and copytrading apps, adding a variety of popular financial instruments ranging from cryptocurrencies to stock indices, and developing a copytrading platform with unique features for finding and copying professional traders.

“Data is what OctaFX is driven by. The broker is constantly conducting research and analysis of itself, learning about the latest financial technologies—all to make sure it provides the clients not only with the best trading conditions, but also with the cutting edge technical solutions”, the broker continued.
