LONDON, 30 April, 2012 –  MahiFX,  the new proprietary-built retail Forex (FX) trading platform, is calling for guest blog entries for its new blog set to launch in May.   The MahiFX blog will provide the Forex community with industry insight through the sharing of news, opinion pieces, market analysis and discussion of trading strategies.

MahiFX, developed by ex-interbank traders, analysts and developers, is headed by David Cooney, former global co-head of currency options and e-FX trading at Barclays Capital and Susan Cooney, former head of electronic FX institutional sales in Europe for Barclays Capital. Operating as a market maker, MahiFX is able to provide institutional level pricing to retail FX traders.

The blog will encourage open discussion and debate on a wide range of forex industry topics. “Our aim is to start a forex community where people can stay on top of news and market trends, share content, consider differing opinions and exchange ideas on trading strategies. It’s a collaboration really.” said David Cooney, MahiFX CEO.

Launch content will include posts on two contentious industry topics: scalping and the role of the Market Maker in comparison to Broker and Electronic Communication Network (ECN) models.   Pipeline subjects will include High Frequency Trading (HFT), changes in the regulatory landscape and the impact of social trading.

MahiFX is calling for guest entries on all topical and thought-provoking Forex-related topics. With imminent plans to introduce numerous new charting components including enhanced indicators, drawing lines and the ability to trade directly on the charts, entries relating to indicators and their impact on trading strategies are particularly welcome.
