FX news: Currensee deal with Oanda
Oanda are the latest FX brokers to be supported on Currensee, a Facebook for traders.
Currensee is the first free social networking and trading site that connects retail FX traders so they can watch each other’s trades and then go on to share trading strategies in real-time to make more informed trade decisions. Currensee supports traders from over 70 countries, who link their live brokerage accounts with one of 100 plus brokers.
Oanda is now supported on Currensee after numerous requests by their customers. Asaf Yigal, co-founder of Currensee, says: “Oanda provides a transparent and very innovative service to their traders and we’re happy to have them as a partner.
“We’ve had hundreds of Oanda traders request to join Currensee and access their real-time trade information and we knew Oanda would be a great broker for our network. There are several companies out there using back-door approaches to get the data from the Oanda platform but it is not scalable and, most importantly, it’s not real-time. We worked closely with the Oanda team to bring the power of the Oanda data together with real-time trade collaboration.”
