Clients of GDMFX Earn a Fixed 8% Income On Top Of Their Profits from Forex & Binary Options

In a near-zero interest rate environment, getting a return on inactive cash, on top of your trading profits, is a major advantage.

Auckland, New-Zealand: GDMFX - the award winning Forex broker - has announced the launch of its FIXED INCOME Program, where all participating new and existing GDMFX Traders can receive an 8% annual income on the free funds in their Trading Accounts.

GDMFX is particularly proud of its new program, as for the first time in the industry; such an offer is made available for both Forex and Binary Options Accounts, including both a standard interest bearing option and a Sharia-compliant Islamic finance arrangement.

Although it is not the only available offer on the market, the Fixed Income program of GDMFX bolsters a major advantage over its competitors. The new program not only includes Binary Options and Swap-Free traders for the first time, but it also introduces better and more flexible conditions, including significantly lower trading requirements and most importantly - the opportunity to opt out of being bound by any trading requirements at all.

The extreme flexibility of its terms is what makes the Fixed Income Program of GDMFX different from other competing offerings on the market. Like with most similar offers on the market, the 8% fixed income that GDMFX is offering on unused capital is intended to benefit active traders. However, unlike most similar offers, traders’ hands are not necessarily pushed into fighting to accomplish a heavy trading requirement within a punishing deadline. Traders have the comfort to receive the benefits of an industry-leading loyalty program, while not making any changes to their trading style.

The Management of GDMFX had this to say on the launch of the new Program:

“It is our belief that in an environment where bank products offer close to zero interest rates, providing a fixed return option on unused capital is just another step in the right direction. Giving sophisticated traders the comfort they need in order to choose GDMFX as their long-term trading partner is one of the most significant goals of the company. Another just as equally important goal is to make sure substantial trading communities around the world are not excluded from the new developments on the market because of differences in culture and tradition. We are confident that with the launch of the 8% Fixed Income Program of GDMFX, we have answered to both challenges and we hope other brokers will follow our lead as well.”

Each Trading Account participating in the Fixed Income Program can choose between two available set-up options depending on the trader’s preferences. A Classic Set-Up is available with an annual interest of 8% applied over the own Free Funds of the trader and compounded monthly. Traders who are uncomfortable with the notion of Interest can choose the alternative SWAP-FREE Islamic Deposit Set-Up, where an 8% Fixed Annual Profit-Share Based on the Shariah contract of Commodity Murabahah (cost-plus sale) can be earned based once again on the own free funds in the trader’s account.

The 8% Fixed Income Program of GMDFX is available for both existing and new clients for deposits made from 1st of August 2016 onwards.

For further information, please visit this page:

GDMFX is a global online Forex and Binary Options broker that offers one of the most flexible trading environments on the market with up to 10 Trading Sub-Accounts per client, no fees on deposits and the ability to choose between five Account Types and three Social Trading platforms at the same time.

Risk Warning: Trading Forex, contracts for differences on margin, or Binary Options carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. It is possible for your losses to exceed your deposited funds and therefore, you should not speculate with capital that you cannot afford to lose. Before deciding to trade the products offered by GDMFX you should carefully consider your objectives, financial situation, needs and level of experience. The content of this release must not be considered as a personal advice. GDMFX recommends that you seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you lack experience and knowledge/ understanding of the offered financial products.

The National Bank of Belarus Includes Alpari in its List of Registered Forex Companies.

Yesterday the National Bank of the Republic of Belarus included Alpari Eurasia Ltd. In its list of registered Forex companies. As such, clients of this company – a part of the international financial Alpari brand – will be able to receive services which provide access to international financial markets within Belorussian jurisdiction.

On 7th March, 2016, Belorussian presidential decree № 231 from 4th June, 2015 regarding activities in the over the counter Forex market came into force. This decree brought in rules to the work of the currency market of Belarus which was previously unregulated. As part of its preparations to conduct activities as a Forex broker within the new legal framework in Belarus, the international Alpari brand registered the company Alpari Eurasia on 19th April, 2016.

To enter into the list of registered Forex companies whose activities are permitted on Belorussian territory, Alpari Eurasia underwent a comprehensive check and fulfilled a range of the national bank’s organisational and normative requirements, including the forming of statutory capital of no less than 2 billion Belorussian roubles or 100,000 USD.  In order to guarantee the fulfilment of its obligations before its clients, the company will make a 55,000 USD deposit in the very near future to the guarantee fund that was created on the basis of the presidential decree.

“Alpari has always spoken out for market regulation in the countries where it conducts its operations and so we were one of the initiators and active participants in creating the corresponding Belorussian regulation. The coming into effect of the decree and for us to receive the licensing is, of course, very positive news and a real landmark moment for the development of the financial industry within the country. It’s important to note that the Belorussian jurisdiction is focussed on creating favourable conditions for the development of the Forex market, providing for an influx of clients and, at the same time, providing their rights with a high level protection,” noted Alpari Eurasia director, Alexander Sabodin.

Being able to operate as a Forex company within the Belorussian jurisdiction brings many advantages. First and foremost, it provides the right to work with both physical persons and legal entities, in addition to with residents and non-residents of the country. It’s also notable that clients of Belorussian Forex companies (physical persons) are absolved from income tax until 1st January, 2019, making work within the Belorussian jurisdiction even more attractive for traders and investors from other countries of the world. More rigorous control on part of the regulator and the guarantee fund will minimalize risks in regards to malevolent fulfilment of obligations and total loss of invested funds.

Alpari, founded in 1998, is one of the world’s leading brands which provides services for working on financial markets. Alpari currently has over 80 offices open around the world and the companies of the brand service clients from 150 countries. In July 2010 the offices for the official Alpari partner in Minsk opened. From the very beginning, one of the company’s key tasks was to bring the Belorussian segment of the over the counter Forex market closer to international high standards of openness and transparency.

The business reputation of Alpari has stood the test of time and is confirmed by the trust placed in it by its clients. Today the company has over 1.1 million client accounts opened with it. In 2015 the company’s average monthly trading turnover was $90 billion.

Over the 6 years Alpari has been working in the Republic of Belarus, Alpari has put a large amount of effort into raising financial knowledge and awareness amongst its clients, with the number of listeners to its lectures and online seminars exceeding 10,000 people. Alpari actively supports educational initiatives and works with a number of leading media outlets and higher education institutes of the country, including the Belarus State Economic University, the Polessky State University, the Minsk Financial-Economic College, the Institute of Entrepreneurial Activity, the Vitebsk State Technological University and the Grodno State University.

A special note worthy of mention is Alpari’s support for the development of initiatives and programs in Belarus. For example, Alpari took part in the purchase and repatriation of the unique 16th century Statute of Lithuania to its historical homeland. The Statute currently resides in the Mahiliou History Museum.

ADS Securities London offer FX clients unique trading tool.

Autochartist market scanner now available inside MT4 platform.

London, June 16th, 2016 - ADS Securities London Limited, has announced that its UK retail forex clients will now be able to access to the award-winning pattern recognition platform developed by Autochartist. Unlike other market scanner tools, Autochartist is the only provider to offer a market scanner that plugs directly into the popular MT4 trading platform, whilst this ease of access combined with ADS Securities’ institutional grade liquidity makes for an extremely powerful combination in the hands of a trader.

ADS Securities London is currently building a European retail client base, offering a range of instruments including CFDs, spread betting and Forex trading. Alongside the competitive pricing, ultra-low latency execution and vast range of markets, this latest addition to its growing offering will further cement ADS Securities London as an education, innovation and service focused broker. 

James Watson, Chief Executive Officer of ADS Securities London, commented:

“There’s no doubting that the market for retail forex brokers in Europe is a congested one, so we are looking to differentiate ourselves with a focus on the very best technology. We have already invested heavily in ultra low latency networks to ensure orders can be executed quickly, whilst out proprietary OREX Optim trading platform is further evidence of our commitment to deliver the very best functionality available.”

Jamieson Blake, Retail Sales Manager at ADS Securities London, added:

“Autochartist is a well known provider of pattern recognition tools, but because we have deployed their market scanner technology within the MT4 platform itself, ADS Securities clients can now take advantage of the signals which are being generated in the most streamlined way possible.”

Historically the Autochartist service has been accessed via a stand-alone website, obligating users to toggle between two windows when analysing trade setups. The ability to deploy the functionality within MT4 has only been available since February 2016.

Ilan Azbel, co-founder and CEO of Autochartist commented:

“We’re continually working to further develop the Autochartist product suite and we are delighted that ADS Securities has selected our technology. We believe that by being the first market scanner to be deployed within MT4, we are offering traders unparalleled convenience when it comes to highlighting potentially valuable trade setups – and allowing traders to take immediate action.”

The latest statistics illustrate the company’s award-winning speed of execution, with orders on the ECN and ECN Zero servers being executed, on average within 150 milliseconds, and Pro Account Orders being executed within an astonishing 0.065-millisecond timeframe.

FXTM’s average requotes amounted to a low 3.8%, based on figures from the past six months. The requote figures are a testament to FXTM’s deep liquidity pool made available via top-tier banks and financial institutions, which enable orders to be filled even during fast-moving markets.

The company also publishes its slippage figures, which show the majority of FXTM clients receiving outstanding improvement in asset pricing through positive slippage. The results indicate the company’s steady and ongoing growth towards creating an optimum trading environment for its traders.

Admiral Markets adds Day Session Indicator to MT4 Supreme

Admiral Markets would like to present to audience news regarding our new Day Session Indicator for Metatrader 4 Supreme Edition.

With the new Day Session Indicator a Forex trader can:

  • Hide candles generated during night trading times, so they work with the trader’s old MT4 Supreme settings and indicators as usual
  • Create their own time windows for sessions (for example, DAX30 Xetra from 9:00am to 5:30pm CET)
  • Change the timeline or period of their active charts at any time and see the changes automatically synced with their offline charts.

To apply the Day Session Indicator to the chart, the trader can simply:

  1. click on file; then
  2. choose open offline; then
  3. select the chart he/she wants to load; and
  4. click open.

Now when a Forex trader changes the timeline or period of their online chart, the offline chart will update automatically. Default settings for the new Day Session Indicator show the regular DAX30 session from 8:00am to 10:00pm CET. Traders can apply templates and indicators to offline charts and access the expert advisors from Admiral Markets as usual.
