New countdown begins

Co-founder and CEO / Saxo Bank A/S

There's been quite a lot happening on the new over the past couple of weeks, some of which you may have already noticed.

As the date grows nearer to the full launch of the new site on April 10, I thought it would be a good idea to update you with what's been going on since my last post.

The full launch of the new will take place on April 10. Photo: 

Firstly, though, I'd like to thank you all for your great feedback on the new Your insights and ideas have been invaluable as we move towards transforming trading into a new social experience.

Some of the updates recently released on include a new feature that allows members to filter the Traders' list by country, while a Big Price Moves tool is now available as a graphic display.

Our developers have also been working on improving the Forex Correlations Table, which displays relationships in the data from the Forex Open Positions module, while articles are now featuring relevant stories for deeper insight within the topic. For more on our financial tools, our head of research and innovation today wrote an interesting update on the changes.   

All of this is keeping our goals on track since Saxo Bank became the world’s first serious financial player to move into multi-asset online social trading in January, when the beta site was launched.

But there is a lot more to come, such as sharing on social-media platforms and having the ability to sign into the site via your favourite social networks, which should make it much easier for members of the old TradingFloor to sign in.

We will soon be introducing a new top navigation bar that will make it easier to search the site, including for relevant instruments, articles and analyst profiles.

And we will be launching in Russian, Spanish, French and German in the very near future, while we are exploring a user-friendly feedback button that will allow members to leave their comments about the new site in an open forum.

As we continue to develop the site in beta mode, we are very keen to hear from you. What will enrich your experience on the site? What else would you like to see or is there something you think we can do better?

Leave your comments below and I will pass them on to our development team. The more specific you are, the better it is for us. 

Thanks again for all your ideas so far — and keep them coming!
