Forex Trader to Open in China

GAIN Capital Holdings, Inc., a global provider of online trading services, announced today that it has received formal regulatory approval from the China Banking Regulatory Commission (CBRC) to open a representative office in Beijing.

“Receiving the CBRC’s approval is an important step towards expanding our business in one of the fastest growing economies in the world,” commented Glenn Stevens, CEO of GAIN Capital.  “We believe the Beijing representative office will assist us in building strong relationships in China’s growing financial community and help provide a strong foundation for our future strategic plans in that country.”

GAIN Capital’s representative office will focus on building GAIN Capital’s brand in China, conducting market research on China’s financial regulations and market environments and facilitating the company’s relationships with Chinese financial institutions.

The CBRC is the primary banking regulator in China, supervising banks and non-bank institutions and their business operations within the country.

GAIN Capital’s Beijing office will be located at the Central International Trade Center. The office will extend GAIN Capital’s presence in the Asia-Pacific region, which currently includes offices in Hong Kong, Sydney, Singapore, Tokyo and Seoul.

Capital Market Services LLC, a leading Forex brokerage firm, has partnered with Red Paladin Inc., a technology firm that specializes in Cloud Services, to offer the CMS Virtual Desktop Interface (VDI) for Forex trading.

CMS VDI supports MetaTrader 4, ForexTraderPro and VT Trader 2.0. Using a browser window, traders can access their demo or live accounts on their virtual environment from anywhere and place trades, upload and configure EA’s, set preferences, and even request custom applications or tools such as Autochartist or Microsoft Excel.

VDI services take the traditional Forex VPS model to the next level by offering traders a dedicated virtualized machine as opposed to space on a large shared server like most standard VPS products.  This service eliminates the need for physical hardware and its associated performance limitations, and protects users from the risks associated with conducting financial transactions on a shared network.

CMS VDI users’ machines live on a managed dedicated network where traders can leverage Red Paladin’s resources for blazing fast and consistent execution speeds from anywhere in the world. “The ability to run your EAs or any automated trading system in a professional server environment, without the worries of having to leave your home or office computer running and supported 24 hours a day is a major plus for serious traders,” stated Joshua Bernstein, Director of Sales and Marketing at CMS Forex.

VDI services are fully accessible from most mobile devices and experiencing MT4 or VT Trader on your iPad is a “revolutionary way to trade on the go” according to Mr. Bernstein. CMS VDI is free for active CMS clients and is available to anyone for $40 a month.  Visit www.cmsfx.com/forex-trading-services/vps to learn more.
