Market

Foreign exchange trading witnessed explosive growth starting in the mid to late 90s with the spreading of internet usage and electronic trading platform. Today the market is the largest it has ever been, with an average daily volume of more than $6.6 trillion. GIC, at the moment, are still heavily focused on Indonesia market targeting mainly forex traders ranging from 21 years to 56 years old. Having the CEO of Jakarta Futures Exchange on board as our advisor, we are able to gather information on the total trading volume in Indonesia which is approximately 560.000 Lot per month amounting to $560 Million monthly. We have managed to get more than 25.000 users signing up and trading in our platform. Also by offering a new features such as an access to Marketmaker function, we are also able to tap into a more general investors and retailers who could join as passive traders or act as liquidity provider.

Problem or Opportunity

Forex Trading is the largest financial market in the world amounting to more than $6.6 trillion dollars daily turnover in 2019, but despite of this, Forex trading image is not good and there are wide assumptions that Brokers are dishonest and Forex Trading is considered as “scam”. After going through the Forex Trading ecosystem, we identified several big hinderences in Forex Trading

CONFLICT OF INTEREST. The Biggest Problem in the Forex Trading Industry!

Forex trading operates like casino with a lot of conflict of interest

1. The more you trade, the more the brokers are making money

2. Traders and Market Makers are trading against each other meaning when Traders profit, Market Makers lose money and vice versa!

FEES. High trading fees are the second biggest problem that traders face. The higher the trading fees, the more difficult traders will be able to break even and profit

LACK OF TRANSPARENCY. With all the trading activities being recorded on centralized server, there is lack of transparency, hence trust.

No ACCESS TO MARKETMAKER FUNCTION.
Market Maker function are only accessible and reserved to institution with Large Fund. There has never been an option for retailers to participate as marketmaker.
