MahiFX Gets Social: 'Just One Click' Technology and FX Traders Can Now Share Trades Through Facebook
LONDON, December 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
New platform release enables easy-option sharing of charts, insight and commentary with forex social trading communities
MahiFX, the proprietary-built trading platform providing retail FX traders access to institutional level technology and pricing, has launched a new 'just one click' functionality that gives traders the ability to instantly share their trading inspiration and strategies with their social trading community and friends. The new platform feature lets clients export charting screenshots of their trades along with user-generated commentary and analysis instantly via Facebook.
Part of MahiFX's accelerated platform development programme, the new feature has been introduced in response to the growing interest in social trading amongst retail FX traders keen to share insight, knowledge and trading tips. Traders can now login to Facebook directly from within the MahiFX API and share screenshots of chosen trades in both the Book view and Analysis tab. And to promote knowledge share and discussion, traders have the facility to add comments to each individualised screenshot.

"Retail FX trading is an increasingly open and collaborative endeavour," says David Cooney , MahiFX CEO. "As the market democratises it's unsurprising that traders will gravitate towards communities that share trading insight and practical trading advice. In addition to the educational tools that we provide on our site and blog, this new social trading feature will serve to foster knowledge share and provide our traders with an open, transparent and novel means to learn and discuss the markets, differing trading strategies and tactics in order to inform their own personal trading strategy."
MahiFX is headed by David Cooney , former global co-head of currency options and e-FX trading at Barclays Capital and responsible for the award-winning e-commerce platform BARX and Susan Cooney , former head of e-FX Institutional Sales in Europe for Barclays Capital.
