FOREX.com Introduces Enhanced MetaTrader 4 Offering

Integrated trader tools & research, 1-click trading make it easier for customers to identify trading opportunities and manage their account

NEW YORK, July 17, 2012 — FOREX.com, the retail division of GAIN Capital Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: GCAP), has released a suite of custom trading tools and features for MetaTrader 4 (MT4). The enhancements provide FOREX.com customers with an optimized MT4 trading experience, featuring fully integrated streaming market commentary & analysis, trade ideas from Autochartist, 1-click trading capabilities, and a host of advanced order management rules. A short video demonstrating the new features of FOREX.com’s MT4 is now available at http://www.youtube.com/forex.

“The enhancements we’ve made to the MetaTrader 4 platform seamlessly integrate some of our best trading resources into the MT4 front end,” said Muhammad Rasoul, Chief Product Officer, GAIN Capital. “With one simple download, customers can now access market commentary from FOREX.com’s global research team and advanced trade entry and order management features that would typically require multiple EAs.”

Highlights of the new features include:

§ 1-click trading features that enable customers to enter into a position on or off the charts, allows for all or partial closing of positions, as well as the ability to close all open positions, winners, losers and pending orders.

§ Automated order management rules that include over nine options to automatically trigger orders: order profit in pips, order net profit, order duration, total floating P/L and total pips P/L.

§ Streaming commentary and trade ideas as well as access to an economic calendar, @FOREXcom Twitter, and Dow Jones newsfeed.

§ Valuable account management features and direct access to MT4 trained support specialists via live chat.

In addition to these new features, FOREX.com MetaTrader 4 customers benefit from a fully optimized EA environment, micro lot trading (.01 trade size), real time updates, and complimentary EA hosting services for qualified accounts. FOREX.com’s implementation of MT4 does not use 3rd party bridge software, providing fast order submission and execution without the need for account syncs.

“Many firms claim to offer a better MT4 experience but end up coming short,” continued Mr. Rasoul. “FOREX.com offers customers a fully integrated experience with no bridges and no syncing issues to worry about.”
