OANDA, a global provider of innovative foreign exchange trading services, is pleased to announce the launch of its copy-trading investment service, the OANDA Trade Leaders Program. Following the acquisition of Boston-based Currensee Global Inc., the OANDA Trade Leaders Program integrates the strength of the two engineering powerhouses.
Copy trading, the method by which traders mirror the trading behavior of experienced forex investors from around the world, is an alternative forex investment product. It provides those investors with little or no forex experience access to the most liquid market in the world; and also enables individual retail forex traders to diversify from their own self-trading.
“With the launch of the OANDA Trade Leaders Program, the future of investing through copy trading is here. Leveraging our proprietary Application Program Interface (API), this direct platform integration allows us to provide copy traders with lower latency and greater stability and security” said Vatsa Narasimha, Chief Strategy Officer and Executive Vice President, OANDA Corporation. “We will continue to innovate on this offering, including adding additional trading instruments such as precious metals; our offer will be unparalleled in the forex industry.”
The process through which professional Trade Leaders become a part of the platform is rigorous and includes regulatory and background checks, as well as ensuring Trade Leaders have a minimum of six months of consistent, positive, risk-adjusted performance.
“Disciplined risk management and following Technicals and Fundamentals are important in building a successful forex trading strategy. With the OANDA Trade Leaders program, we are now offering investors the opportunity to take advantage of professional traders who are experts in these areas and have demonstrated consistent performance in the market,” said Ed Eger, President and CEO, OANDA Corporation. “The OANDA Trade Leaders Program provides investors with the most transparent access to the forex market and a modern way to diversify their portfolios.”
The OANDA Trade Leaders Program is currently available in the United States, Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). OANDA continues to work with regulatory authorities in all of its jurisdictions to introduce this compelling program to its clients around the world.
