The guys at Currensee keep on working hard and releasing new features. A new feature launched today allows users of the platform to instantly tweet the trades to the world, and get rewarded for it.
The latest feature from Currensee just requires the user to set the feature to ON. Now, each trade is that he does with his broker, in a live account, will be tweeted to the world. The followers will instantly see his position, and others can search and see the position.
Twitter is one of the most popular services in the world. One of the reasons for its popularity is its openness, which allowed the creation of many useful application around it.
There are various financial applications (web and desktop), with StockTwits being my favorite. Anyone can write there and associate his tweet with a stock or currency pair. This is fun talk. Now there’s more.
Currensee’s added value is big – Real trades on real accounts are tweeted in real time. This expands the transparency beyond the Currensee platfrom.
Apart from socializing with fellow traders, there’s another, internal, reward for using this feature. Members that will enable it will receive extra Currensee Bucks that can be used for purchasing forex premium services inside the platfrom.
