FXCM TopTradr François Nembrini Video Interview

IntelligentHQ.com in partnership with Groupe INSEEC London presents:  Video Interview with FXCM / TopTradr’s François Nembrini.

FXCM the major Foreign Exchange retail broker and player has been revolutionising the Forex Trading industry due to its agressive innovative approach and the way it has democratised FOREX trading to a bigger audience. IntelligentHQ decided to interview François Nembrini Institutional the Managing Director of FXCM TopTradr about his career and the way he sees trading, Forex, and the related challenges and opportunities.

FXCM believes that the substantial potential operating and capital synergies between the two companies would result in an accretive deal with a strong growth profile and improved economies of scale. These ‘improved economies of scale’ would perhaps see the forex world shaken up as the newly combined Titan may be able to improve on a formula that that has seen many imitatators.

Thanks to newly created social trading networks, users are able to see and  copy the trades of top-ranked rivals, swap ideas and gauge the market mood in online chat with a community of contacts.  Not only that but retail FX has grown to such an extent over the last decade as brokers allow individual traders to take highly leveraged positions previously accessible only to institutional investors.

TopTradr is a Social Trading Network, initially launched as a web app with iOS and Android support. It is a community-based, real-time, peer-endorsed platform. François Nembrini spearheads the platform from FXCM’s london office. In this exclusive interview we learn more about the man, FXCM and the algo based platform. We also find out about the social trading phenomena that is sweeping the industry and the state of the forex market in a shifting landscape.
