MahiFX Launches New Forex Technical Analysis Indicators and Charting Components

MahiFX introduces new graphical indicators, overlays and trend lines along with charting components to enable traders to zoom, draw and trade directly on interactive charts


LONDON, 15 May, 2012 –  MahiFX,  the proprietary-built retail foreign exchange (Forex/FX) trading platform, has today released a new suite of charting components and market-timing technical analysis features and indicators. The platform enhancements are intended to equip traders with the tools required to better interpret currency graphs and to execute more informed trading strategies. The new charting package also provides MahiFX traders with the ability to zoom, draw and trade directly from the interactive charts.


MahiFX is headed by David Cooney, former global co-head of currency options and e-FX trading at Barclays Capital and responsible for the award winning e-commerce platform BARX and Susan Cooney, former head of electronic FX institutional sales in Europe for Barclays Capital. Operating as a market maker, MahiFX challenges the traditional broker model by providing institutional level technology and pricing to retail FX traders.


Commenting on today’s release David Cooney, CEO said: “Our ambition is to provide traders with the best possible trading platform. We intend to continually engineer and evolve the platform based on our clients’ feedback. This first major release since our launch two months ago is a direct result of conversations we have had with our clients; conversations which have highlighted just how important charting and technical analysis tools are to them.”


The new fully customisable charting and technical analysis features provide traders with Indicator, Overlay and Trend Line tools to analyse and interpret currencies and movements in real-time. MahiFX traders can now examine trends by deploying trend-following Moving Averages indicators including Exponential Moving Average (EMA) or the Weighted Moving Average (WMA) or utilise other trend indicators such as the Parabolic Stop and Reverse system (PSAR) and Donchian Channels. Momentum indicators such as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) and Rate of Change (ROC) are among many that traders can utilise to assist in trading ranging and trending markets and to determine preferred entry and exit points.


MahiFX also features a popular ‘Quick Order’ functionality which gives traders the ability to post bids and offers very close to or even inside the spread with only a couple of clicks.


Accompanying today’s release, MahiFX has refreshed its home page, uploaded video interviews with David Cooney and provided Indicator tutorials for traders less familiar with technical analysis or for those seeking a refresher course.

After taking a short course about forex. Like many forex traders, I've earned a significant share of my knowledge the hard way. Macroeconomics, the impact of news on the ever-moving currency markets and trading psychology have always fascinated me. Before founding Forex Crunch, I've worked as a programmer in various hi-tech companies. I have a B. Sc. in Computer Science from Ben Gurion University. Given this background, forex software has a relatively bigger share in the posts.
