Finance Magnates to Host First-Ever Virtual Summit 2020

Genesis Vision - Q4 2018 to 2019

I posted a similar post to this around about a month ago, but I thought I'd make an updated post and give my thoughts on the latest news! So this is what we have to look forward too:
2018:
2019 (no official ETA's):
  • Fiat Gateway
  • Bank & Stocks Integration
  • Compliance for US investors
  • Further platform development for GV & Genesis Markets
Current Partnerships:
  • Tools4Brokers
  • LMAX Digital
  • Just2Trade
  • Larson&Holz
  • Monarch
  • RoboForex
Lots too look forward too here! As always i'm sure team have some good surprises up there sleeve to come!
Now my 2 cents on the recent US news ~ Firstly anyone who's done their own research, surely should have expected this news? Disappointing to some, maybe, but the team have confirmed they are working toward US compliance and will be developing some unannounced project for US investors so everybody can be involved!
With regard to the US regulation, would you have rather the team went full steam ahead, allowed US investors to invest, and then risk being closed down like 1broker? Absolutely not, transparency and security is of the upmost importance for Genesis Vision!
Just think, when looking to partner with banks/stock exchanges/brokers/managers/investors, do you think these guys will partner with/use a platform that has exposed themselves to this risk? No. The big money will want 100% security in their operations and GV have put themselves in a position to do just that.
This is how GVT will attract the best in the game. With the best in the game comes a sweet slice of that multi-trillion $ AUM industry!

The team posted their results for Q1 2019 profits in this article:
Some more info on revenue:
Firstly, I am not part of the team, so any replies are just from research I have done into the project and available information:
1.) The team confirmed that there are 40 people working for Genesis Vision 25 are working in the office and 15 remotely. Jump in the TG if you would like to know more info or even talk to some of the other team members direct. Dmitry Nazarov = CEO, Ruslan Kamensky = Head of Development. (You can do your background research on these guys, they've got skills).
2.) Can't comment accurately on funds, because well, that's the teams business. Ofc a responsible investor should try and find out as much info as they can however.
  • The ICO raised -> $2,836,724 when ETH was around $250-$300 pre-bull run (you do the math).
  • The team/development tokens also amounted to 709,862 GVT/16% of the supply, these funds would/will have been used for development, these were locked for 1 year and released approx October 2018
3.) Sustainability is a big one. This is why I continue to follow GVT daily because I believe the Genesis Vision model is sustainable. See my previous post:
https://www.reddit.com/genesisvision/comments/9p80igenesis_vision_will_soon_become_a_self_sufficient/
TLDR - Here's how they will create revenue from the GV platform (taken from the whitepaper):
  • The project will receive profit from commissions on investment operations. Each investment will be charged 0.5%³ of the operation amount.
  • The project will also generate profit from managing its own fund and by investing it in successful managers of our platform.
  • Genesis Markets will create revenue from trading fees
Another thing to think about - The team have been extremely responsible with their funds. Zero funds have gone to waste and have been used in the most efficient way possible. One example (although a touchy subject) is marketing. The bottom line is marketing will ramp up when the project/platform has had more development (finishing integrating the brokers + additional features). The team have known that the correct time to market the platform is coming, just not yet... Obviously if they had 100's of millions from the ICO marketing would have been ongoing from Day 1. This is one example of being responsible with your investors/ICO funds.
If you would like some more information about the funds, the ICO etc. See these two links:

How to open his eyes?

I have a cousin that is deep into this MLM stuff. He has gone from 4life, to avon, to essential oils rackets, to now a new more nefarious form of MLM that uses forex stock exchange as a way to entice people.
He keeps bring this guy name “Bob Proctor” as a pupil of a pupil of Andrew Carnegie( the American Magnate from back couple hundred years) and. Guy named Rick Terry as the CEO of the enterprise. Somehow he believes that if signs enough people up to their forex trainings, he will be come rich.
How the hell do you recommend I hope his eyes to the scams?
Check the guy out and see for yourself.

News digest from B2Broker

Every week we send a letter with information about the activities of the company B2Broker and the news of the B2BX project. Certainly, something doesn’t fit into the format of the letter, and it is premature to talk about something. But we can’t ignore some things, that's why we are happy to share news with you!
Finance Magnates together with Evgenia Mikulyak, the COO of B2Broker, discussed a number of important issues related to the crypto currency! Evgenia shared her vision on how the crypto currency market has been developing and talked about solutions for business, thanks to which B2Broker is going to meet the growing demand in the industry.
Traders Room This week Trader's Room got a useful option - two-factor authentication via SMS. This option isn’t available in the previous version of Trader's Room, but now it is by default in Trader's Room 2.0! For those who don’t know what Trader's Room is – it is one of the key solutions of the company B2Broker. It solves the problem of a quick start of the business. In fact, it is a platform for creating a broker company (Forex, Crypto, Stock), as well as an exchange, crypto-exchanger, payment system, hedge fund, for the ICO and any financial institution.
Cryptocurrency Payment Gateway This week we have updated the site - http://www.b2binpay.com/ The gateway for accepting payments in crypto currency is one of the most popular solutions of our company. Any company that wants to accept payment in crypto currency can use B2BinPay.
Active members club Next week we will introduce the rules of the Active Members Club. We know that some of you have been waiting for details from the time of the ICO, and somebody hasn’t paid attention yet. The status of the active participant allows you to receive rewards for participating in the development and expansion of the B2BX project. Any owner of a certain number of B2BX coins (you need to pass KYC) will be able to perform tasks related to the project and receive additional B2BX bounties as a reward. Membership in the Active Members Club gives you not only the opportunity to get additional coins, but also the influence and assistance in the development of the project and the community.
While the full site of the aggregator exchange is being prepared, we have opened a registration for connecting to B2BX! https://www.b2bx.exchange
🔜We are looking forward to the next week to share the news from the dealing and IT departments!

Regulation is Keeping Blockchain in a ‘Straitjacket’, Blackmoon CPO Says

Regulation is Keeping Blockchain in a ‘Straitjacket’, Blackmoon CPO Says

This is an excerpt. To hear the full interview, click the Soundcloud or YouTube links.
Asset tokenization is becoming an increasingly popular phenomenon in the fintech sphere. The practice is bringing an increasing amount of institutional investors into the blockchain space.
Time to buy the dip?
Finance Magnates spoke to Moshe Joshua, Chief Product Officer at Blackmoon, about his company’s unique philosophy around asset tokenization, creativity in the blockchain space, and whether or not blockchain is the ultimate answer.

’Not Everything Will be Tokenized’

Moshe said that there is “absolutely no doubt” in his mind that the majority of assets will one day run on a tokenized system. “I’m 100 percent committed to not only buying into that prophecy, but also making it happen.”
However, “I don’t want to say that everything will be tokenized,” he added. “There’s a fallacy in the environment that we’re seeing today, which is that people don’t [ask themselves] a very important question–the question is, ‘why blockchain? Companies come out, and they just don’t ask themselves: ‘why are we using blockchain?’”
Moshe explained that this is important to ask because as blockchain technology stands at this present moment, “[blockchain] is harder to work with [than existing systems]. It’s onerous. It’s very hard to find developers who can work in Solidity and actually build complicated systems.”
“There are latency objectives that are not being met,” he said. “There are throughput objectives that are not being met. There are a lot of reasons–there are more reasons not to use blockchain, and just to build your own system…it’ll work better, cheaper, faster that way than to build a blockchain-based system.
“I think people today are not asking themselves enough: ‘what am I doing that actually requires blockchain, that if I don’t use blockchain then I can’t build my business model the way I want to do it? I think that’s really lost on everybody.

Blackmoon is Focused on Tokenization of Assets with ‘Intrinsic Value’

“When we look at what Blackmoon is doing,” Moshe said, “we have to “split up the ‘money-pie’ of the world into two different facets: financial products that expire and those things that don’t. If you look at the things that don’t expire, you’re really only looking at two slices: you’re looking at equities and currency. Everything else has an expiration on it.”
“That differential is really where things get their value from. When you look at equity and currency–I call them inflatable objects, because they get their value through inflation–if the price goes higher, everybody makes money. Whereas those things that expire, they gain their value intrinsically through decay.”
“So, Blackmoon is tokenizing fund investments–those things that have intrinsic value,” he explained. “Now, hedge funds are in this weird gray area in that border between those things that expire and those that don’t. Because ultimately, you’re buying equity in a hedge fund as a fractional owner of that fund. But the truth is that because I can create and redeem my investment, and I can bring money into the fund and out of the fund, grants [the fund] intrinsic value.
“So it’s not only expiration that grants things intrinsic value–it’s also redemption,” he said. “Those are the products that Blackmoon is focused on.
He said that this is what sets Blackmoon apart from other blockchain-based platforms for asset tokenization. “When you think of a lot of the other tokenization platforms that are working in a similar regulatory environment…they are all focused on equity-based issuances, whereas Blackmoon is more focused on intrinsically-valued issuances.”

Asset Tokenization is the ‘Second Wave’ of Blockchain’s Journey to the Mainstream

“When it comes to the tokenization of financial instruments,” he continued, “I just see it as the second wave of blockchain mainstreaming itself. The first wave really comes from idea that the whitepaper of Bitcoin showed the world that you can create a digital object that is not copyable, and by maintaining that standard of non-duplication from a digital object standard–one that’s internet-based–I think that shows everybody that you can create a denominator of value…and that denominator is fixed, or at least, it’s controlled.
“The next wave (that we’re seeing right now) is the idea of tokenization.” However, “there’s something lost on everybody as it relates to blockchain and finance, in that when you think of creativity as a programmer technologist–most companies (like social networks and what not) can be creative as they want. ‘What should we do? What would be a useful experience for our users?’”
“Everybody comes up with all these wacky ideas, and then they roll it back, and they self-regulate about what [they] should not do. A good example would be Facebook not allowing porn–they could do it if they wanted to, but they don’t for self-regulatory purposes because of the brand’s protection or whatnot.
“I think that within the financial arena, it’s the exact opposite,” he said. “You have this toolbox with all this functionality on the technical side, but we’re having to squeeze it into a box–it’s a square peg in a round hole that doesn’t really fit. More importantly, we have more functionality than the box of regulation allows.”
He argued that this is what’s holding the industry back. “So, it’s very limiting, meaning that we’re starting to use blockchain with a straitjacket.
However, “I see that as an opportunity, because I realize that we’ve brought it to the edge of what the financial arena of regulatory compliance allows us to, and then as that box expands–which it will–we’ll just be ready. It’ll be immediately applicable.”

Welcome to the Binary.com ICO subreddit

Welcome!

Hi everyone! Welcome to the dedicated subreddit for the Binary.com Initial Coin Offering (ICO).  
The aim of this subreddit is to provide a safe and thriving discussion space for traders, investors, developers, partners, and just about anyone who’s interested in investing in the Binary.com ICO or in learning how an ICO works.  
We’ll be posting news and updates, especially about our upcoming ICO, and we’d love to see you share your thoughts, ideas, and relevant links that you think might interest the community.  
We genuinely believe our ICO and the concept of “smart tokens” can usher in the next wave of ICOs that are best described as “IPOs on the blockchain”.  
Learn more about our ICO at https://ico.binary.com.  

Our commitment to cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology

We are one of the first online trading platforms to offer cryptocurrency denominated accounts (e.g. BTC and LTC) whereby clients can deposit, trade, and withdraw their winnings –– all in the cryptocurrency of their choice. We have further plans to incorporate blockchain technology and reshape our award-winning trading platform for a blockchain-based future.  

Why crypto?

We absolutely believe in the transformational power of cryptocurrencies for several reasons, including the fact that banking as an industry is outdated and ripe for disruption –– especially when it comes to payments and international transfers.  

Who are we?

Binary.com (formerly BetOnMarkets.com) is the pioneer in online binary options trading. We started out in 2000 to make binary options –– also known as fixed-odds financial trading –– easily available to ordinary investors worldwide. Before we came onto the scene, binary options were typically traded only in large quantities.  
In 2016, we ventured into Forex and CFD trading with the MetaTrader 5 platform. In May 2017, we added cryptocurrencies to the list of tradable assets on our MT5 platform, starting with BTC/USD. This was followed by ETH/USD and LTC/USD a month later.  

Links and stuff

Here are some other useful links forthose wanting to find out more about who we are what we do:

News Update - 08.02.18

1) Do you remember the B2BX Roadmap? Of course you do! Our company reputation, White Paper and Roadmap are the aspects most ICO participants pay attention to.
The roadmap for the B2BX ICO included options for action depending on the amount of funds collected.
🔥 Now it's time to present the actual B2BX development plan!
The B2BX Roadmap: https://medium.com/@b2brokeb2broker-past-present-future-f2876c406a7c
We marked on the map the most important events for the company, not just plans for 2018-2019, but a short review of the past. The most important events of the future, of course, are obtaining licenses, developing our own technologies and opening offices in strategically important locations on the financial map of the world. All this brings us closer to the moment when B2BX becomes Prime Broker in the market of cryptocurrency liquidity! Full version on Medium.
2) Integration with ONEZERO
We ordered the placement on servers of Equinix - LD4. This data center hosts the largest European banks and brokers. Given that B2BX will have a cross-connect with liquidity providers, the speed of obtaining prices from providers and the speed of execution of orders will be as high as possible! New working conditions with OneZero will reduce the cost of services for our customers and increase our attractiveness for new customers. Recall that in B2BX will be able to nominate margin accounts in any currency, including cryptocurrencies.
3) CRYPTOCURRENCY PAYMENT GATEWAY
There is also the possibility of accepting a B2B coin with zero commission. We have started integration with 10 merchants and have begun to develop a site for B2B coin, which will accumulate information about all crypto-brokers, exchanges and other customers that will start to accept the B2B coin for payment. As we launch each merchant, we will send out a newsletter. We have also implemented the support of tokens based on Ethereum standard ERC20. Now every merchant can start receiving any token/coin issued on the Ethereum platform. Please note that if you have a website, an online store, a broker company, crypto-exchange or a marketplace, and you want to expand payment methods you should connect B2Broker crypto gateway. To do this, you just need to select the cryptocurrencies from the list that you want to accept (BTC, BCC, ETH, LTC, DASH, XMR, B2B, BTG (bitcoin gold) and hundreds of tokens released on the Ethereum platform), provide purse addresses and make an easy integration with your site. In just an hour your customers will be able to pay for goods or services using cryptocurrency with low commission rates every day, free installation, no monthly fee, no freeze period, no banks and no any third intermediaries.
4) INVESTMENT PLATFORM
To date, this product is used by 11 brokers, two of which have become our customers this year. The investment platform allows brokers to popularize cryptocurrency trading products while customers have the opportunity to subscribe to the signals of professional traders and earn. Also for professional traders it is possible to create PAMM accounts or portfolios of cryptocurrencies. The IT department has redesigned the back-end platform to make the MT5 work more stable.
5) Work with clients
The B2Broker account department adjusts business processes to improve operational efficiency. For example, improving the interaction with the development department will positively affect the speed of working with customers. Of course, the number of our employees is growing, but we understand that without optimizing business processes, we can not build an effective company! We are expanding the product line and preparing knowledge bases to quickly train employees.
Our clients comprise 72 companies, 25 of which use B2Broker’s cryptocurrency solutions!
The team is also developing new standards of service which will correspond to the status of Prime Broker.
6) PLATFORM FOR ICO
To date, our platform for ICO has benefited 4 companies. Of course, all payments go through our crypto gateway leaving these companies to concentrate on their marketing. Such a collaboration has proved its effectiveness. Large ICOs prefer this model, choosing a solution that is ready, tested and constantly updated. A demo version is available by clicking on the link.
Oh, and by the way!
This week in Finance Magnates there was a press release about the opening of office in Malaysia. https://www.financemagnates.com/forex/technology/b2broker-extends-asian-expansion-malaysian-office/
🔜 In mid-May, a summit on blockchain technology will take place in New York. https://www.coindesk.com/events/consensus-2018/sponsors/

AgenaTrader to Launch New Kind of Social(ized) Trading, TradersYard

The new service combines a web-based social trader network with a conferencing environment
Multi-asset class and multi-connectivity trading platform AgenaTrader is launching a brand new social trading solution. The firm is focusing its attention on a unique aspect of the trading decision making process. A web-based social trader network is combined with a conferencing environment, to enable the creation of virtual trading rooms across the world.
Join the industry’s gathering! The platform, which can be connected to different brokers at the same time, supports trading in stocks, futures, forex and CFDs. The firm is already working on integrating options trading into the product.
TradersYard will be demoed by AgenaTrader CEO Gilbert Kreuzthaler The major advantage of AgenaTrader is the deeply integrated semi-automated trading approach, which involves tools for drag and drop signals and strategy programming, risk definition, and an extremely powerful scanner which allows the possibility to scan for signals in over 1000 symbols.
Starting strategies on scanner signal – ‘one click strategy trading’ – completes the toolset and enables extremely fast decisions whilst AgenaTrader automatically calculates entry, stop and target levels in combination with pre-calculated order sizes.
Innovative Trader Network The company has considered several aspects of online trading for retail investors. Being mostly a lonely endeavor, and one of the reasons behind trading failure, AgenaTrader is focusing on the social trading aspect. The company is launching www.TradersYard.com, which is ostensibly an innovative open social trader network. It will be accessible to everyone.
Within TradersYard, traders can find other traders with similar trading styles, with the ability to group each other, share information and analysis. TradersYard goes much further than the standard functions of forums.
Traders can create public, protected and private groups where the owners can decide who will be able to participate – just like a social network function.
TradersYard+ Conferencing System The real added value of TradersYard is TradersYard+ with the integration of a conferencing environment, which is encrypted and controlled by Include IT/AgenaTrader. In addition to the posting and chat possibilities of the TradersYard web platform, the conferencing environment offers audio/video/desktop streaming.
This enables the possibility for traders to build virtual trader offices across the world, irrespective of using the AgenaTrader platform. TradersYard and TradersYard+ can be used by anyone, whether interested or active in the financial markets or not.
In such virtual offices, traders can meet each other face to face and share their ideas, analysis, and even trades. Traders who own AgenaTrader have options available for trade sharing, copy trading, and other social trading concepts.
The TradersYard Group concept provides the capabilities to open prop trading rooms or to visually organize face to face communication for trading departments of institutional organizations.
“The combination of a social network with a conferencing platform is absolutely unique in the market and opens up incredible possibilities,” says Gilbert Kreuzthaler, CEO of Include IT/AgenaTrader.
“The current experiences are proof, that most Traders are not ‘lone wolves’. It shows, that traders are heavily looking to socialize with other market fighters.”
AgenaTrader´s partners comprising of educators, mentors, and brokers, can utilize the TradersYard ecosystem for educational services to a highly targeted audience. TradersYard will support these partners to reach the user and create a win/win situation for partners and traders.
Traders need a broker and as AgenaTrader is an advanced trading platform the company can refer traders to their broker partners. The whole concept can also be white labeled by brokers or investment houses. If such a company wants to set up their own social platform, conferencing system and also provide AgenaTrader to their customers, either the whole package or single components can be offered to their customer base.
Gilbert Kreuzthaler further mentioned: “In our beta launch we have experienced that users find this concept extremely helpful and love the idea and functionality capabilities. It’s exciting to hear that they can find each other via the social Web-platform, share trading ideas, analysis, start visually meeting each other within their virtual trading offices and even send trades into their groups.
This can be commented or picked up by their colleagues. Personal relationships are being built within this platform, taking users out of their loneliness, which becomes an added value for them.
I’m very sure that TradersYard will have a deep impact in the trading industry and be massively used by retail traders, Prop and Institutional trading firms.”
Kreuzthaler will reveal AgenaTrader’s new platform at the Finance Magnates London Summit next week.

FXCM CEO Drew Niv Discusses Firm's Future after the CHF Crisis

Hi Everyone,
Our CEO Drew Niv held a Q&A with Forex Magnates which will answer many questions we have received over the past couple of weeks http://forexmagnates.com/exclusive-fxcm-inc-ceo-drew-niv-discusses-firms-future-after-the-chf-crisis/. Please understand that some questions I can't answer since we are a publicly traded company and it may be material information, but we will get to all questions in due time.
What happened on January 15th after the SNB announcement? What was the immediate impact of the SNB announcement on the company’s systems?
At the time of the SNB announcement over 3,000 FXCM clients held slightly over $1 billion in open positions on EUCHF. Those same clients held approximately $80 million of collateral in their accounts. As you know this was the largest move of a major currency since currencies started floating 1971.
The EUCHF move was 44 standard deviation moves, while most risk management systems only contemplate 3-6 standard deviations. The moved wiped out those clients’ account equity as well as generated negative equity balances owed to FXCM of over $225 million. We believe that the FXCM system operated properly during this event.
The caveat of our no dealing-desk execution system is that traders are offset one for one with a liquidity provider. When a client entered a EUCHF trade with FXCM, FXCM Inc. had an identical trade with our liquidity providers. During the historic move, liquidity became extremely scarce and shallow, which affected execution prices. This liquidity issue resulted in some clients having a negative balance.
While clients could not cover their margin call with us we still had to cover the same margin call with our banks. When a client profits in the trade FXCM gives the profits to the customer, however, when the client is not profitable on that trade FXCM Inc. ends up having to pay the liquidity provider.
FXCM ended with a regulatory capital shortfall. Accordingly, FXCM needed to get a loan to cover this balance, which it did. For anyone that still thinks FXCM is running an FX dealing desk, we have now demonstrated that such is not the case.
Why do you think many people traded EUCHF with FXCM?
Because we are a no dealing-desk broker and offset each trade one-for-one with our liquidity providers, and only make money on trades not customer losses. We published a study a few years ago called “traits of successful traders” that looked at FXCM traders over a long period of time and their general behavior to find what was destructive behavior to stay away from and what worked for clients.
The study focuses on what the majority of profitable traders did to increase their odds of success. What the study found was that traders who traded during quiet range-bound market hours like Asian hours OR that traded rang- bound low volatility currency pairs tended to be more profitable.
Obviously many of our competitors who are on the opposite side of their clients’ trades did not find this trade to be helpful to their bottom line, as they lose money when traders profit. We saw many of the dealing desk firms begin to increase overnight rollover cost as well as raise margin requirements to get these trades off their system and that’s why FXCM and other STP brokers had much bigger exposure.
Why did FXCM require an emergency loan with such tough terms?
As a regulated broker we are required to notify our regulators in a timely manner when any event occurs that may be deemed sensitive to clients. When we notified the regulators, they required FXCM Inc.’s regulated entities to supplement their respective net capital on an expedited basis.
We explored multiple debt and equity financing alternatives in an effort to meet the regulator’s deadline. The deal we ended up doing with Leucadia was the only deal that could and would happen in the very short timeframe we were given by the regulators. The CEO and the president of Leucadia were here in the office working on the deal.
It was a tall order for someone outside of the FX industry to come in and write a $300 million dollar check. This was the type of thing only top management could do. But they see the sustainability of FXCM, and that was everyone’s end goal. We really are very thankful to Leucadia. The deal enables us to live and fight another day and gives us time to build shareholder value in the future.
You said you plan to pay back the loan with proceeds from sales of non-core assets so what are non-core assets and will that be enough?
We announced last week that we anticipate that with the proceeds from the sale of some non-core assets and continued earnings we can meet both near and long-term obligations of our financing, while preserving the strength of our franchise. It’s widely known and understood that FXCM’s core business has always been retail FX; It is the majority of FXCM’s revenue.
However, over the past few years, the company has spent over $250 million dollars making strategic acquisitions building up our non-core businesses, mainly the institutional side as we tried to diversify the firm. We are now looking to sell some of those non-core assets; But, we are not in a rush and are looking to get the highest valuations for these assets.
We are considering closing or selling smaller regulated entities that require large sums of capital requirements, but that offer increasingly low return on capital. The latter move allows us to free up significant amounts of cash that is currently trapped. We believe that in the near term we can pay down a majority of the loan. That’s our goal.
What happens after 90 days according to your agreement with Leucadia?
The agreement says we need to pay back $50 million of the loan along with $10 million in fees in 90 days. If we don’t pay that $60 million, we will be assessed an additional $30 million in fees when the loan is due in 2017. So we are going to pay our $60 million and hopefully more in 90 days and then go from there. To be clear, the financing does not force us to do anything at 90 days.
Will you be selling FXCM?
I absolutely do not plan on selling FXCM. Like I said we will be selling non-core assets but no I don’t plan on selling FXCM. That is also why we implemented the shareholder rights plan to prevent a hostile takeover. FXCM has been independent for over 15 years and we intend to stay that way.
Are client funds safe with FXCM?
Yes. As we have said, we believe FXCM’s systems operated properly during this event. I’ll stress it here again, FXCM is not insolvent, has not filed for any form of bankruptcy, and is in compliance with all regulatory capital requirements in the jurisdictions in which it operates. The financing we received from Leucadia has strengthened our balance sheet and gives us the opportunity to grow our core business. With Leucadia, our pockets are even deeper and we aren’t going anywhere. Additionally, all of our regulated entities except the U.S. provide clients with segregated funds. All of our global client base in our regulated entities minus US clients would be protected under a bankruptcy. Our UK regulated entity through the FSCS even offers clients £50,000 per person in protection. Canada has similar insurance for retail traders of up to $1 million CAD.
What are the relationships like with your liquidity providers after this event?
Many of these relationships are long-standing relationships. The entire industry took a hit here. They understand what happened. Most everyone halted trading in EUCHF, but half of our liquidity providers kept providing prices in all other pairs the entire time. Half of the LPs did stop pricing FXCM on Friday January 16th, but most have returned. We presently only have two providers that have not yet returned, but we are optimistic that they will soon return. There is still plenty of liquidity on the platform. Most banks and other liquidity providers have been working very closely with the FXCM team.
Where do you see FXCM in six months from now?
We will be well on our way to paying down the loan and continue to grow our core franchise. FXCM still has the best platform for retail traders, we still provide the fairest and more transparent execution in the business and we have a slew of new trading indicators and applications that no one in the space is even considering offering their clients. We’ll still be here; We may just look a little different. Here are a few things we are working to get out in the next six months:
Single Share CFDs – We are going to be offering the top 200 or so most traded US, UK, French and German stocks. We are going to offer these shares on the equivalent of NDD in FX.
Improving CFD execution – Sharpening execution capabilities to match some of the benefits of our FX capabilities for Index and Energy CFDs to remove restrictions on stops and limits, allowing APIs, along with tighter spreads.
Market Depth in FX – clients will be able to see the depth of liquidity which will provide them more transparency with execution quality and allow them to make more informed trading decisions.
Real Volume indicators – clients will have a real volume ticker of all trades done on the FXCM system, which will show clients’ actual order flow; they can see directional volume, so long, short, net or total volume as well as balance on volume per instrument; and finally we have an indicator to show the ratio of real volume divided into transactions per period. These indicators will let clients compare our trading activity against other independent providers who also publish volumes like the CME, and clients will be able to compare execution.
Sentiment Index – We will be providing FXCM’s client sentiment data in real-time as a default on the platform so clients can see where the rest of the clients are.
These software updates and platform features are bringing much more transparency to the retail FX market aimed at improving the client experience in the market.
With your stock price so low, is that an indication of the health of your company?
While it is true that FXCM’s stock price dropped after the events of January 15th, we do not believe that the present stock price is indicative of the health of the company. The stock price does not impact our day to day operations as a company. With the injection of cash from the Leucadia financing, the core retail business is functioning completely as normal. We have excess regulatory capital in all our regulated entities and never had to pause trading or interrupt client’s trading experience. As we announced in our business update, daily volume on the retail side was on pace to set an all-time company record.
Why didn’t the dealing desk brokers have these types of losses?
A dealing desk broker does not have offsetting trades. If the customer is long a trade the broker is short that trade, so when the customer makes a profit on a trade the broker loses. When the customer loses on the trade then the broker is profitable.
Obviously on January 15th most clients lost money so the dealer was very profitable. Even for clients that blew through their stops and had negative balances with these firms, the dealer doesn’t have a liquidity provider that it owes money to. They can essentially act like the negative balances never happened and enjoy their profits.
What is FXCM changing with regards to their risk management systems?
The primary change we will be making is removing currency pairs from the platform that carry significant risk due to over-active manipulation by their respective government either by a floor, ceiling, peg or band. Given what happened with EUCHF the industry is now looking very hard at any potentially similar issues, especially given the increased geopolitical risks in Southern and Eastern Europe.
We will also be raising margin requirements for other pairs as well. Some of these changes will be permanent while others may change as geopolitical risks change. The pairs we are removing from the platform were not material to our volume or our revenue. Some of the currencies we are removing include DKK, SGD, HKD, PLN and CZK.
FXCM made some material changes in margin requirements for clients. Are those changes permanent or temporary in nature?
When you look at some of the changes we made to margin requirements, look at them in three different categories: 1. Some of the changes we made were required by regulators, and therefore we had to comply with these changes. 2. When you look at emerging market currencies, the banks and our liquidity providers were raising margin requirements to eliminate any potential risk of large gaps. 3. Previously liquid Western country currencies, like the DKK or CHF, which now carry risk because they are manipulated currencies, have become less liquid.
Despite what the media thinks about leverage, we know the clients like it and want more, it’s the number 1 or number 2 request our sales staff has been getting the past week. We understand the importance of this to our clients but we just need to be smart about it moving forward.
What is Black Thursday’s long-term impact on the retail foreign exchange industry? In what ways has it changed the direction the industry is going?
Banks are raising their margin requirements, too. A lot of these currencies that carry any type of geopolitical risk with them are going to lose support and liquidity. Investors always had little faith in emerging market currencies but always believed in Western countries’ currencies even if they were manipulated in some way, but that’s gone.
Switzerland is a Western country and if they can pull the shenanigans they did with their currency, what’s to say other western countries won’t do the same?
