Our company will act as a technology partner at FX WORLD ISTANBUL conference that will be held from 25 to 28 September in Istanbul. The event will be arranged with the assistance of multiple Turkish non-governmental organizations and will be dedicated to the development of Forex industry in the country.
The representative of FX WORLD ISTANBUL organizers Ceylan Pirinçcioğlu underlined some important points: “In the world of FOREX, the global daily trading volume has reached 5.3 trillion dollars whereas the Turkish volume is 30 billion dollars, representing 0.6% of the global volume. Particularly to attract regional foreign investors to our country, a number of important changes must be considered in our regulation and taxation system. If we can attract foreign investors for FX, I am sure that they would also invest in Turkey.”
Pirinçcioğlu has also highlighted the importance of detailed explanation of the "Leverage System" for the benefit of investors. The maximum leverage allowed in the country currently is set at 1:100 and this ratio indeed creates enormous opportunities as well as risks for investors.
Besides, about 50 representatives of different financial organizations are to speak at the event. MetaQuotes Software Corp. will present its latest technologies and software solutions able to solve a number of Turkish Forex issues and facilitate the market development.
We will present our latest developments at the iFX EXPO 2014 to be held on the 27-29 of May at The Grand Resort Hotel in Limassol, Cyprus. We will demonstrate improved mobile terminals, social trading technology and MetaTrader Market, which now offers financial magazines and books in addition to software applications.
The iFX EXPO is a very important event in the Forex industry with over 70 participating companies from all over the world. Over 1,500 top managers of various financial companies are expected to attend the exhibition.
At the Arabian Banking Technology Exhibition & Conference (ABTEC), our company will showcase the MetaTrader 5 trading platform and present the latest developments for brokers and traders. The event will be held on April 8-9, 2014 in the Bahrain International Exhibition & Convention Centre (BIECC).
ABTEC is a very important exhibition for technical experts of different financial institutions, with representatives of leading banks, exchanges and financial groups of the Middle East and North Africa region being among the participants. We hope that they will be very interested to understand how MetaTrader 5 can facilitate the start up and the management of a brokerage business and intend to provide a complete demonstration of the platform using real trading scenarios.
Any interested parties are welcome to attend and meet with our representatives. This is probably the best opportunity to see how to start a brokerage business with MetaTrader 5.
