Clients can now trade over 35,000 instruments across different asset classes and Saxo offers bonds, stocks, ETF’s, CFD’s, futures, options and FX from one account on the platform. Clients on SaxoTraderGO will also get free access to a large universe of fundamental research and technical trade signals integrated directly in the platform for easy access.
Neil Browning, Global Head of FX Sales at Saxo Bank, said in a comment:
“The Best FX Broker award is a testament to our commitment to give access to tools and features aimed at facilitating greater transparency, control and potential price improvement on every trade. Our full suite of services for FX clients is being continuously enhanced around our core pillars: market access, liquidity, and technology wrapped in innovative and stable services delivering best execution for our clients”.
“Relentless focus on adding value to clients as well as innovation in a collaborative form with a cohesive team are simple keys to the continued success of any business. Our order execution model sets us apart from our peers. It is our niche – the effective fill and the quality of the fill, and the underlying monitoring and the value of our execution statistics, as well as our commitment to the code of conduct really set us apart”.
Recent additions include the implementation of Order Driven Execution for FX Spot, FX Forwards and CFDs, which provides a safer and more efficient way to fill client orders, and the signing of a partnership with Autochartist to make automated technical analysis tools and live trade signals available across asset classes.
