Today we sat down with James Trescothick, easyMarkets Senior Global Strategist, to talk about easyMarkets latest innovation - the addition of Bitcoin to their MT4 platform. easyMarkets has proven its dedication to its clients and innovation time and time again, so it’s very exciting that we get a bit of insight into their process.
Hello James thanks for sitting down with us, could you please tell us a bit about this really exciting new offering by easyMarkets?
Of course, as you said this is a really exciting new addition to what we already offer our clients. easyMarkets MT4 offers very valuable features, including the ability to automate certain trading functions, you can use certain overlays if you use a specific trading strategy and of course all of that within MT4’s familiar trading environment.
That sounds amazing, are there any other interesting features easyMarkets offers to its traders?
Absolutely, we are always striving to offer our traders and clients the best trading experience and that includes support, education and what most traders care about – trading conditions. Specifically easyMarkets offers its clients: fixed spreads, negative balance protection, guaranteed free stop-loss and take profit. Beyond that traders will be able to customize their trading environment and experience with MT4’s EAs and indicators. It’s very exciting that all of these features and benefits are now available to our customers that want to trade Bitcoin.
That does sound exciting and easyMarkets has quite the stable of benefits and features. So relative but a bit divergent, what is all the fuss surrounding Bitcoin, coming from an experienced financial industry professional.
Well, it seems recently that Bitcoin has been growing into its promised role as a market disruptor. I mean in the past month we’ve seen the cryptocurrency surpass the $5800 mark, which was roughly four times the price of gold at the time. We also saw during the frictions between N. Korea and the U.S. investors treating Bitcoin as a safe-haven. This is because of Bitcoin being decentralized – the is a perception that it won’t be affect as strongly by geopolitical events, whereas Government issued currencies are.
Thank you for all the information James! We look forward to easyMarkets next innovation, which we are sure will come sooner than later!
