The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2015-01-21T02:02:38Z Vantage FX Stands Strong After SNB Fallout 2015-01-21T02:02:38Z vantage-fx-stands-strong-after-snb-fallout Sydney – January, 2015 In a move that shocked markets creating unprecedented volatility, the Swiss National Bank ended their 1.20 peg to the Euro. The announcement was unexpected and caught the market by surprise. Australian Forex services provider, Vantage FX, remains in comfortable trading ground with more than favourable capital requirements. As a reminder, traders can be assured that client funds will always remain in segregated trust accounts and are kept separate from Vantage company funds as required by ASIC regulations. Trading is unaffected and business is continuing as usual. “The last few days’ events will have changed the Forex industry. Nevertheless, for us business will continue as usual” affirmed Vantage FX Operations Manager, Daniel Bent. Our support team members and account managers are on hand responding to customer queries.

Binary Options Trade Volume Quadruples at Vantage FX 2013-07-29T06:19:44Z binary-options-trade-volume-quadruples-at-vantage-fx July, 2013 - Sydney, Australia Since becoming the world's first broker to offer the ability to trade Forex and Binary Options from the same MetaTrader 4 (MT4) trading account, Vantage FX has been experiencing rapid growth in both categories. The Australian-based financial services provider has been offering Binary Options trading since 2012 but recent months have seen a surge in local awareness and activity. Antony Goddard, Managing Director of Vantage FX, says "Binary Options are undoubtedly a growth area for financial trading in Australia -- the last quarter saw Vantage FX quadruple our volume of binary trades." Because Vantage FX clients can do their Forex and Binary Option trading via a single MT4 account, the rise of Binary Option trading has led to a simultaneous increase in Forex trading. Vantage FX's parent company Enfinium has recorded a turnover of more than 16 billion for the period May to June 2013, following a 41% increase in Vantage FX's retail forex trading volume. But Goddard believes that figure can also be linked somewhat to the development of trading platforms with wider, less traditional, user appeal. "Traders want their trading platforms to fit with their technology set," he says. "For example, we knew that Mac users didn't want to use the PC version of MT4, so Vantage FX became one of the few traders to develop MT4 specifically for Mac. We've also developed mobile platforms specifically for mobile devices and launched FX Copy for online social trading." As well as developing trading platforms, Vantage FX is providing free resources to help people learn the basics of trading. Says Goddard, "We realise that many people in the local market may be unfamiliar with Binary Options and, to a degree, Forex trading. That's why we've added an Education section to the Vantage FX website where anyone can access our free tutorials and infographics to learn about how trading works. We also offer free demo accounts where users get $20,000 of virtual funds to get hands-on practice in a risk-free environment." "We want to show that, once you understand the basics, trading can be for everyone." Vantage FX Releases Breakthrough Faster, Enhanced Mobile Trading 2013-03-25T23:07:02Z vantage-fx-releases-breakthrough-faster-enhanced-mobile-trading Sydney, March, 2013 Australian award-winning Vantage FX has released a new suite of mobile phone Forex trading applications for MetaTrader 4. The trading apps will be made available to Vantage FX clients for use on the Apple iPhone, iPad, and Android smartphones. The apps have been completely redesigned internally with significant upgrades and first-to-market features. Unlike other trading applications which depend upon customising prebuilt off-the-shelf products, Vantage FX’s trading apps are all powered by Enfinium Technology. Vantage FX worked alongside Enfinium developers creating the application, redesigning its functionalities, aiming to improve speed and the user- interface. The Vantage FX trading app will also feature new unique charting features. Traders will now be able to draw and apply analysis tools directly onto charts. Trendlines, Fibonacci retracement and other such items can be added to assist trading strategies. Different styled charts can be viewed and various timeframes can be applied to the charts. These features were designed with iPad users in mind, looking to enhance all users’ experience. The new trading apps will feature: ·         Real-time pricing and execution ·         Ability to open, close live positions & amend pending orders ·         Detailed account history – not just account balances ·         Customisable charts available in line, bar, candlestick or mountain style ·         Chart drawing features ·         Free technical charting indicators ·         Multi-lingual smartphone support The mobile trading apps are all connected to Vantage FX MetaTrader 4 accounts. The new platforms have been created to allow for quicker and smoother logging in and syncing of information. Trades made on the desktop version of MT4 will instantly show on mobile apps and vice versa. Existing live and demo MT4 accounts can be used to login to the mobile apps - new accounts do not need to be created. The Vantage FX Mobile Trading apps for the Apple iStore are now available. The Android version will be released in the coming month.

Based in London, these additional servers have allowed Vantage FX to have more than doubled their server capacity.The upgrade will expand on Vantage FX's existing Equinix server network which aims to improve trading execution times and server stability. "This will allow for an overall enhanced trading environment– both automated and discretionary. The improvement will not only benefit our European clients but will benefit our global network as a whole - balancing and easing traffic," says Vantage FX Managing Director, Antony Goddard. These extensions to Vantage FX come at a time with the notable growing interest in Binary Options. Even though, the growth for Binary Options since its introduction has rapidly gained momentum, Vantage FX has seen a dramatic surge in the trading of Binary Options amongst their own clients since their offering in October last year. As the first broker worldwide to provide a combined experience of both Binary Options and Forex trading on the one MetaTrader 4, Vantage FX traders have quickly seized the opportunity with Binary Option trade volumes quadrupling in the last three months of trade. There has also been an increasing interest and curiosity amongst traders who have yet to trade in Binary Options. Staff members have noted an increase in customer support queries on Binary Options and a high attendance rating for the company's free Binary Options webinars presented by trading expert and Futures columnist, Abe Cofnas. "The interest and curiosity is definitely there. People are excited but are being smart about it learning from the webinars and asking us questions," said Rom Revita, Vantage FX Account Manager.For those who would like to learn more about Binary Options feel free to contact the Vantage FX support team or download a free 30-day demo of the platform at http://bit.ly/BinaryOptionsVFX.About Vantage FX Vantage FX are a multi-award winning Australian financial services firm providing innovative online Forex trading capabilities to clients globally.
