Dukascopy is one of the most highly respected Forex brokerages in the industry. Based in Geneva, Switzerland, it has been authorised by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA), to conduct banking activities. This means that as well as being a fully regulated Forex broker, it also has the status of a Swiss bank. The Swiss government guarantees the deposits of all Swiss bank account holders up to the amount of CHF100,000.00 (One hundred thousand Swiss francs) against bank failure. Switzerland also has one of the most strictly supervised regulatory regimes in the world.

Dukascopy Europe IBS AS is a European Union (EU) licensed investment brokerage company which is 100% owned by Swiss Forex bank, Dukascopy Bank SA. The EU license allows Dukascopy Europe to be an eligible counterparty for both private and institutional clients in any of the 28 EU member states.

The Swiss Foreign Exchange Marketplace (SWFX) is the proprietory technological solution for Forex trading of the Dukascopy group, and is its registered trademark. It utilises a centralised / decentralised marketplace model, based on close cooperation with selected banks, other institutions, Forex marketplaces and the providers of technological solutions. This means that, in trading, both buy-side and sell-side participants interact on an equal footing.

When you open a managed account
, I send you a copy of my book. Then, as you monitor the real-time performance of your managed account, which is traded using our algorithmic, high frequency routines, you can see the forces that move the Forex market, the importance of timing and discipline, the effects of such things as support and resistance, and the impact of fundamental market-moving events.

You can also just sit back and observe the performance of the equity in your account.
