FX Online Japan prominently presents the English-speaker a potential hurdle right on the landing page of its website. It states:
Please note: This site contains abridged content aimed at giving you a brief overview of our products and helping you to open an account. For further information and to view the full range of content available please view our Japanese-language site.
Although this reviewer happens to have an English- and Japanese-speaking cousin who has lived and worked in Japan as a translator for a number of years, not everyone is so equipped. Regardless he was not available to assist in this review.
In any case FXOnline and IG Markets are part of IG Group, which has several operating companies offering a variety of speculative products to a retail and professional client base. Aside from the corporate affiliation, that describes many other companies offering Forex trading services online as well.
The company has been in operation since 2002. It has more than 800 employees, including a HQ in London and offices in Tokyo, Singapore, Chicago, Melbourne, Madrid, Paris, Dusseldorf, Milan, Stockholm and Luxembourg. An experienced executive team appears to have been drawn from around the world. FX Online’s financial results, including assets of 998 UK pounds (and no debt) are cited in its profile.
FX Online offers its clients the use of the Pure Deal trading platform, which is web browser based. The Platform is advertised as featuring “Price Improvement” technology that can offer better prices than the one’s requested by a trader. The platform also offers mobile trading and iPhone trading.
The range of markets accessed by FX Online extends to Forex, Stock Indices, CFDs, Energies and Metals, Binary Options, as well as Rates and Bonds.
Demo accounts, education in the nature of CFDs and a video tour of the platform are also available to visitors to this website. That is quite a lot of content considering the warning at the top of the landing page. Support options are not really addressed at this location. Account sign up is available.
