Saxo Bank has announced the addition of a Forex Trading
Education tab to its Saxo Forex fan page on Facebook, allowing traders
of all experience levels to enhance their Forex trading knowledge and
gain new insights into the psychology of trading.
Facebook has over 400 million users worldwide, and a growing number of companies are
moving to the platform to educate and communicate with customers. The Saxo Forex
Facebook page has seen a rapid growth in number of
'fans', Facebook’s term for users who show interest in the company and
automatically receive all updates of the page. Since its launch in February the page
has attracted over 5,500 fans, a large percentage of whom read new posts and follow
discussions on a daily basis. The page enables users to participate in Forex trading
discussions and stay informed of upcoming events, such as seminars.
Many Facebook users with little trading background discovered the page as well, and
asked for ways to improve their Forex Trading knowledge. Saxo Bank formulated an
education application that is useful for traders of all experience levels. The
programme consists of beginner, intermediate, advanced and expert sections. The
application will soon be recieving an update, giving visitors the opportunity to
test their knowledge beforehand in order to help them decide at which level to start
learning. The update will also give users the option to post their progress in the
education section on their wall, which will be visible to this person's contacts.
Educating clients has always been one of Saxo Bank's strengths. TradeMentor, its
existing education programme, offers online and offline course materials on both Forex Trading and CFD
Trading and the company aims to reach a broader audience with the Facebook application,
giving users the opportunity to discuss the topics with other traders.
The company will continue to add more features to its Facebook page in the near
future with live data due to be available shortly and a Forex TV section also under
development. The page can be found at facebook.com/forex.
