Social forex network are experiencing a burst in activity lately, only two days ago OANDA launched its own forex social network called fxUnity. Today ayondo comes out with an integration to Alpari having integrated with Ava FX back in October 2009. Alpari is one of the world’s largest global Forex brokers and ayondo is the leading social trading portal in Germany.
Company founder and CEO of ayondo Manuel Heyden: commented: “With the active involvement of Alpari we’ve succeed in an enormous broadening of ayondo’s reach. In view of our international expansion through our platform we’re delighted to welcome such a first-class partner broker.”
Heiko Müller, Manager of Alpari Deutschland, on the cooperation with ayondo: „With active investing we find ourselves in an increasingly dynamic environment. The field of social trading is one of the major themes for the future and will have a sustainable impact on foreign exchange trading for retail investors.“
Since the start of ayondo almost 3 years ago, the platform for certified top traders has won over 30,000 registered Users. They can watch from over 1000 traders at work, or select the best certified traders and follow them automatically with their own accounts.
As well as the Alpari partnership there are an additional three new fundamental changes:
- Accounts from €100: Starting now opening an account with our Broker partners is possible from only €100 onwards. With this amount it’s already possible to follow a certified trader automatically. ayondo can already be tested with real affordable prices.
- Loss Protection for everyone: All followers benefit immediately from the individually adjustable size of their maximum loss levels, so potential losses can be limited.
- 5 top traders for every account: Each User can put together a personal portfolio from up to five top traders and follow them automatically – regardless of the size of their own broker account. Diverse markets such as foreign exchanges, currencies, commodities, etc. can be combined in the portfolio. The combination of different trading approaches helps individuals to compensate for downturns.
Just last year ayondo introduced new important innovations such as the portfolio simulation. Since a while now, all traders are able to trade directly from their own real money accounts on ayondo. Also, a special interface for the popular MetaTrader software is part of the range of still completely free functions on the trading portal. With that, ambitious day traders have the ability to easily publicise their current track record and to gain followers on ayondo. Currently ayondo represents over 1000 ayondo who enter their trades into the platform, or synchronize their own accounts.
