XM Launches MT5 with CFDs on Single Stocks

LONDON, March 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — XM Group (Trading Point Group), a leading FX and CFD Broker, today has officially announced the launch of the MT5 platform with offerings of over 300 CFDs on Single Stocks.

Today, 6th of March, XM Group (Trading Point Group) has officially announced that it has successfully launched the MT5 platform, after a series of testing phases which have made sure the additional platform is seamlessly connected to all existing systems.

The addition will enable the company to extend its offerings to 6 Asset Classes including CFDs on Single Stocks (Shares) in addition to the existing offerings which include FX, CFDs on Indices, Metals and Energies.

Chris Zacharia, Marketing Director of the Group commented:

“This day is one of those milestone events, which don’t happen to companies every day.

“It is something we have been patiently expecting for a long time, and I truly believe it will be a game changer for XM, which is taking its first steps in extending its range of instruments to the Stocks sphere.

“XM is currently the biggest MT4 broker* with over 20 MT4 servers available and with over 1,000,000 clients, but with the addition of the MT5 to our platform offerings we are automatically entering into offering a new asset class which up to now was not possible for us, that of CFDs on Single Stocks.

“Our plan is to extend our instrument offerings to up to 5000 CFDs on single stocks from companies all across the world listed on various stock exchanges including but not limited to NYSE, Nasdaq, LSE, Frankfurt Stock Exchange to name a few.

“The current launch phase, which is officially being announced today, includes a total of 300 instruments and we will populate with more and more offerings as time goes by.

“As noted by myself in a previous interview, I feel the predecessor of MT5, the globally acknowledged MT4, is a great platform and has proved itself, but it could only satisfy the needs of a certain audience and that would be FX traders, while MT5 is open to a whole new audience in addition to FX traders.

“Only judging from the audience it will serve as a multi asset class platform, I would say it’s the platform of choice as we speak.

“It’s simply a new era.”

XM lança MT5 com CFDs de ações individuais

Londres, Reino Unido, March 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — O Grupo XM (Trading Point Group) – um dos principais corretores de FX e CFDs – anunciou oficialmente o lançamento da plataforma MT5, com ofertas de mais de 300 CFDs de ações individuais.

Hoje, 06 de março, o Grupo XM (Trading Point Group) anunciou oficialmente o lançamento bem-sucedido da plataforma MT5, depois de uma série de fases de teste, os quais garantem que a plataforma adicional está perfeitamente vinculada a todos os sistemas existentes.

A adição irá permitir que a empresa estenda as suas ofertas a 6 classes de ativos, incluindo CFDs de ações individuais, além das ofertas existentes, que incluem FX, CFDs de índices, metais e energias.

Chris Zacharia, Diretor de Marketing do Grupo, comentou:

Este é outro marco na história da nossa empresa, o que não acontece todos os dias.

É algo que temos esperado pacientemente há muito tempo, e realmente acredito que será decisivo para a XM, que está a dar os seus primeiros passos para estender a sua gama de instrumentos ao leque de ações.

A XM é atualmente a maior corretora* através do MT4, com mais de 20 servidores de MT4 disponíveis e mais de 1.000.000 de clientes. Mas com a adição do MT5 às nossas ofertas de plataformas, estamos a oferecer automaticamente uma nova classe de ativos que até agora não nos era possível: CFDs de ações individuais.

O nosso plano é aumentar as nossas ofertas de instrumentos em até 5.000 CFDs de ações individuais de empresas do mundo inteiro, listadas em várias bolsas de valores, incluindo, sem qualquer limitação, NYSE, NASDAQ, LSE, Bolsa de Valores de Frankfurt, entre outras.

A fase de lançamento atual – que está a ser oficialmente anunciada hoje – inclui um total de 300 instrumentos, mas iremos adicionar mais ofertas com o passar do tempo.

Tal como disse numa entrevista anterior, acredito que o antecessor do MT5 – o mundialmente reconhecido MT4 – é uma excelente plataforma e já se provou como tal, mas só pode satisfazer as necessidades de um determinado público-alvo, mais precisamente os operadores cambiais (forex trader), enquanto o MT5 está aberto a um público-alvo inteiramente novo para além dos operadores cambiais.

Julgada só com base no público-alvo, esta servirá como uma plataforma de múltiplas classes de ativos; até diria que será a plataforma de escolha.

É simplesmente uma nova era.

Mobileye sets GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS(TM) title for the Most People Using Virtual Reality Displays at 2017 YPO EDGE event

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, 6 March 2017 — During the YPO EDGE, 1,867 members of YPO, the premier leadership organization for chief executives in the world, became a part of history in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, as Mobileye, the leading supplier of software that enables Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS), set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the most people using virtual reality displays. Mobileye Co-founder and CEO Ziv Aviram, a YPO member, surprised the gathering of YPO global business leaders with a virtual reality experience of riding in a driverless car.

Mobileye launched in 1999 with the belief that vision-safety technology will make our roads safer, reduce traffic congestion and save lives. With 27 automaker partners, including some of the world’s largest, Mobileye’s technology has rapidly evolved to support the three pillars of autonomous driving – sensing, mapping and driving policy.

Each year, YPO global chief executives and business leaders gather on a different continent for the YPO EDGE to shape the future of global industries. The 2017 EDGE in Vancouver was designed to spark idea exchange, introduce disruption, and infuse innovation into companies and communities around the world.

“We are dedicated to continuing our 17-year tradition of leveraging the newest technology, including artificial intelligence, deep learning and crowdsourcing, to create the hardware and software needed to help our 27 OEM partners enable ADAS systems and eventually fully autonomous vehicles,” said Avarim. “These partners chose Mobileye not only because of our track-record of innovation, but also because our systems have been validated to the highest level of safety and accuracy over millions of miles.”

“The entire YPO EDGE conference is about how innovators and disruptors are changing the world. With the 2,700 global business leaders gathered at the EDGE, we have now begun a discussion about the fourth industrial revolution and what that means to business and to society by incorporating the best practices, inspiration, disruption or innovation that our speakers have shared,” said Larry Bond, 2017 YPO EDGE Chair.

“YPO’s goal is to create a global platform for chief executives to engage, learn and grow, and the YPO EDGE unite members from around the world each year to explore how they can be better and more inspired leaders,” said Scott Mordell, CEO of YPO.  “Vancouver has been an ideal host city for the YPO EDGE, with its diversity and rising importance as a hub city of entrepreneurship, innovation and disruption.”

An adjudicator from GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS was on hand at the 2017 YPO EDGE to present Mobileye with a certificate of the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title and share it with the YPO members who were a part of this historic achievement.
