Retail oriented Forex broker OctaFX notified clients today regarding their release of an MT4 web-platform that allows a client to trade from any browser on any operating system with the well-known interface of any desktop Metatrader 4 platform. All major tools are available including one-click trading and chart trading.
Through the Metatrader 4 web-platform a user doesn’t have to download and install the software to enjoy the same look and feel as the desktop version. This can be even more relevant to MacOS and Linux users do not need use unreliable third party apps or invent complicated and intricate ways to access Metatrader anymore.
OctaFX has enjoyed a year of growth, known as an offshore based micro broker, the retail focused broker stepped up its game within the last year to receive UK FCA regulated status, which was reported first here on LeapRate. Although, it seems the broker has yet to fully actualize their European plans, as there is still no mention on the OctaFX website taking advantage of this license yet.
Some 2015 Highlights from OctaFX include:
- Clients enjoyed benefit totals of over $7M from OctaFX in both financial promotions and trading contests. OctaFX doesn’t underestimate the importance of trading contests and financial promotions…their demo contests are well-known among traders as a chance to practice trading and get a real money prize as a result, and it helps the broker promote the services to a wide range of Forex beginners.
- The broker unveiled their Southampton FC partnership, the sporting partnership brings a lot of great brand exposure.
- 4 new language versions: German, Thai, Bengali and Hindi.
- Charitable actions took OctaFX staff as far as to Bali, Indonesia this year, where they supported several sports in collab with Bali Sports Foundation, Indonesia is a big market for the broker.
