Podcast on location: Britain is on the up!

Andrew Saks-McLeod and TwoBlokesTrading discuss Britain’s opportunities as the financial markets look toward a bright future – from Britain itself.

Britain, home to the largest institutional FX center in the world, and some of the most prominent FX industry cornerstones, is on the up.

Last week, FinanceFeeds provided an insight into how London’s financial powerhouse will provide the high tech, sophisticated framework which encompasses everything from the Tier 1 banks that handle 49% of the entire world’s FX interbank order flow, several large, well capitalized prime of prime brokerages, entrepreneurial FinTech firms and spread betting and retail FX companies which in some cases have a market capitalization of £6 billion.

Confidently, we can clearly see a very bright future for electronic trading in Britain, a country whose economy is about to soar as its independence from the indebted European mainland which has been unable to modernize and lags behind Britain’s plate-glass, world-leading financial markets prowess.

Here in Britain, FinanceFeeds joined traders Tom and Owen of TwoBlokesTrading at their studio to speak about the stable future that the UK’s FX business has along with the positive outlook on the country’s currency markets, and why now is the time to buy buy buy!

If property, spot FX and electronic trading via London’s sophisticated platforms is on tomorrow’s agenda rather than today’s, and you happen to find yourself in Symonds Yat, then the oven-baked whole camembert with caramelized apples, Wye Valley honey, and fresh bread followed by slow braised Welsh lamb at the Saracen’s Head is £25 well spent. There will be no return on that particular investment, though!
