Japanese retail Forex broker Gaitame Online Co., Ltd, today announced the schedule for the launch of a new offering – on-exchange trading in FX margin contracts. The broker is soon set to offer trading on Click 365, the Forex margin contracts trading platform of Tokyo Financial Exchange.
The company will start accepting applications for the new service on September 24, 2015, with the actual trading operations to begin on October 5, 2015.
Gaitame Online, which has so far offered only OTC Forex trading, first unveiled its plans to expand its offering to on-exchange Forex margin trading in July this year. It received the necessary permissions to offer the Click365 service in the beginning of August 2015.
The addition comes as on-exchange Forex trading is enjoying a growing demand, at least this is indicated by the latest data. The trading volume of Exchange FX Margin contracts on Click 365 totaled 3,945,138 contracts in August 2015, up 12.3% from the 3,512,328 contracts contracts registered in July this year.
