HELLERUP, Denmark, September 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Saxo Bank, the multi-asset online trading and investment specialist, today launches four new exotic currency and precious metals crosses to its extensive spot FX and spot Precious Metals offering. The crosses available to trade today are Euro versus Israeli Shekel (EURILS), Gold versus Turkish Lira (XAUTRY), Gold versus Thai Baht (XAUTHB) and Platinum versus African Rand (XPTZAR).
This expands Saxo Bank's FX spot offering to a total of 180 pairs of which 17 are spot metal crosses versus Gold, Silver, Platinum and Palladium. Whilst niche products, these exotic crosses complement Saxo Bank's industry-leading offering in the Spot FX, Spot Precious Metals and OTC FX Options space and offer clients a wider range of trading and hedging opportunities.
Didier Abbato, Vice President, Product Management at Saxo Bank, comments: "These are niche products however we do anticipate demand from our clients whose needs have become increasingly specialist. Our ability to create such crosses demonstrates our commitment to our clients' sophisticated trading requirements and highlights the flexibility and superiority of our offering. We believe that this gives us an advantage over others in the market, and helps us to attract sophisticated traders."
