Yesterday, at the FX Week awards event in London, the forex market analysis product I work on within the IFR Markets group at Thomson Reuters was presented with the coveted Best Vendor for FX Research and Strategy award for 2010. Basically, that means we do a better job than any other 3rd party provider (non-bank, non-broker, non-dealer, etc.) of providing insightful and useful market commentary, analysis, and trading strategy according to the voting of users.
We’re #1! We’re #1! We’re #1! 🙂
While most of our customers come from the institutional trading world (banks, hedge funds, etc.), our content is also available for free to retail forex traders through Oanda, FXDD, dbFX, and FXCM (to a limited degree). If you broker isn’t on this list, tell them you want IFR Markets. IFR Markets forex coverage is also available to members of the Currensee community through that platform.
Here’s the release:
IFR Markets wins prestigious industry award for FX commentary
IFR Markets, the real-time markets commentary service of Thomson Reuters, has won a prestigious FX Week Award for its agenda-setting coverage of the foreign exchange market through a year of great turmoil.
IFR Markets Forex Watch won the Best Vendor for FX Research and Strategy, 2010 award, which is decided by votes from the foreign exchange industry and recognizes the expertise, commitment and flair of the editorial team.
The team consistently provided incisive commentary and winning trade ideas through a stormy year for currency markets that included a yuan revaluation and Japanese intervention, a euro crisis, multiple dollar slides and a surge in emerging currencies. They faced stiff competition from players such as Informa Global Markets and 4Cast who value this accolade above all others.
IFR Markets Forex Watch is a commentary service run by analysts in London, New York, Boston, Sydney, Tokyo and Singapore who cover majors and emerging FX around the world, around the clock. Packed with flow and order information, technical trading strategies, options flow and volatility data and regional/country focus reports, Forex Watch complements Reuters News and Reuters Dealing, giving Thomson Reuters customers a complete offering in the foreign exchange space.
