With a trade volume of equivalent to nearly four times the global GDP of $79.3 trillion (for 2017), the foreign exchange or forex clearly stands first in the list of markets with the highest liquidity. The numbers are expected to reach a new high with an increasing number of nations opening up their stock markets for overseas investors. The dynamism of forex trade has been further spurred by the onset of digital wallets that are fast becoming the norm for both individuals and enterprises across the globe; a new dynamic in the form of cryptocurrencies has hit the market. As forex traders look toward accepting bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies, the need for sophisticated platforms to support clients with the best strategies for greater ROI, becomes more evident.
