Dukascopy Japan has announced the launch of its operations from today – October 16, 2015.
The company is accepting account opening applications and encourages its clients to try demo trading on the JForex platform.
The announcement comes a couple of months after Dukascopy announced it was acquiring the Japanese Type-1 licensed broker Alpari Japan K.K, a former subsidiary of Alpari UK, which was forced into administration due to “Black Thursday” losses. When announcing the completion of the acquisition, Dukascopy said that Alpari Japan K.K. will be renamed Dukascopy Japan K.K. and will offer forex trading through SWFX Swiss FX Marketplace, Dukascopy’s proprietary trading technology.
Japanese clients will benefit from direct access through the JForex platform to the same price feed and liquidity as all other clients of Dukascopy Group.
The company is obviously not done with its international expansion. In early September this year, it voiced its intentions to buy Forex brokers in order to expand its presence in Australia, South Korea, South Africa and Canada.
