FxSolutions confirmed its participation as the Official Partner of The 8th Jordan Forex Expo & Awards
FX Solutions was founded in 2001 by two foreign exchange veterans who realized the Internet could provide the retail trader with the same instantaneous price and deal information that had previously been available only to bank traders via private networks.
The company opened for business with five employees and has since grown to over 40 professionals. In 2003 FX Solutions began live trading on its Global Trading System (GTS) and began research and development on a proprietary “direct link” price feed. This revolutionary price discovery and delivery system would give retail traders their first true equality with the professional world of interbank traders. The speed and accuracy of the GTS platforms allow FX Solutions to serve retail clients, white label partners, and institutional trading partners.
