Gain Capital has revamped its flagship trading platform Forex.com, adding web and mobile trading capabilities and education resources for retail traders.
New resources include a full library of video tutorials, training modules, articles and other content, as well as an expanded schedule of webinars and events.
The new site provides streamlined trading, research and account management features in a web-based environment. The Trade Dashboard feature provides a snapshot view of open positions, account balances, current rates, news headlines and latest research while Currency Pair Summary offers a consolidated view of the latest quotes, news and research for a particular currency pair.
Quickdock provides an expandable window that allows traders to enter a trade, view open positions or check account balances from any page on the site.
The new mobile version of Forex.com allows customers to access real-time market information, trade and manage their accounts via their mobile devices. The site has been optimised for smartphones and other web-enabled mobile devices such as the iPhone, iPod Touch, Android and Palm Pre.
“The newly enhanced Forex.com represents the most significant change to the service since we launched it in 2004,” says Glenn Stevens, CEO, Gain Capital. “The improvements we’ve made incorporate the evolving capabilities of the Web as well as the feedback we’ve received from our customers.”
The new website is now available in the US and will roll out in the UK, Australia and Singapore, as well as other international markets, in the coming months. Forex.com complements the company’s ForexTrader Pro platform for active traders.
