PLANTATION, Fla., Aug. 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TradeStation, a Monex Group company (TSE: 8698), today announced that IBFX, Inc. and IBFX Australia Pty Ltd, its two major forex subsidiaries, are expanding their product offerings with the addition of several minor currency pairs to the pairs currently offered for trading.
The expanded product offering will be available in the coming months to TradeStation Forex division customers. For U.S. clients, the minor currency pairs will be available to trade at 20:1 leverage; for Australian clients, most of the pairs will be available to trade at the individual account holder's leverage setting.
"Forex minor pairs can be attractive for traders who want to explore new trading ideas, spread their risk and diversify their portfolios," said Gary Weiss, President and COO of IBFX, Inc. "For example, they may trade an 'exotic pair' that matches one major currency with the currency of an emerging economy, such as Mexico, Hong Kong or South Africa. Trading minor currencies may also enable traders to take advantage of broader economic variables affecting emerging economies, such as prevailing interest rate differentials or trends in capital flowing into or out of the country."
