In the last 6 years I had filled several positions in financial institutions such as a stock broker, a foreign exchange desk manager, a financial consultant and in my recent role I serve as a senior Forex advisor for XForex which is an online forex company.

3. What type of clients you deal with?
We deal with clients on all levels from the beginning stages to the more advanced trading levels.

Because of our high presence on the web, most of our business comes from the online world.

5. Why should a trader pick XForex from all forex brokers?
Aside from all the benefits that XForex offer like commission-free trading, 24/7 online support, high leverage (200:1), XForex offers educational and learning trading experience that you won’t find anywhere else..
Our team of experts and financial trainers provide personal assistance and guide clients to financial success. We provide daily analysis and market reviews to our clients giving them a better understanding of the market and helping them trade profitably.

6. From your experience, what advice would you give a person who wants to enter the forex world?
My advice to the beginning trader entering the Forex world is as follows:
• Learn the market and understand what you’re getting into.
• Research and find the broker that suits your needs and wants. Look for a good offering but more importantly customer service, don’t go for the low rates offer without being certain they have a good customer service department. From my extensive experience in the Forex world your key to success will be your client-broker relationship. I can honestly say that at XForex they put an emphasis on servicing clients, which is so important.
