Copenhagen, Denmark (PRWEB) December 21, 2005
In the light of the recently announced deal where financial broking company IFX has bought into FX Player, Forex Trader Mentor (http://www.forextradermentor.com), a similar provider of virtual or 'fantasy' forex software is looking for a strategic partner. "People in the on-line forex trading community are waking up to the fact that there is a synergy between trading and entertainment" Says Steve Pickering, operator of TraderMetrics. "Trading forex, especially in the virtual market-maker concept provided by the TraderMetrics simulation software, has much in common with playing poker on-line, but is deeper, more intellectual and more challenging".
By de-coupling from the actual market and using the dynamics of a virtual order-driven market, 'virtual traders' have to get involved with the game of bluff that goes on between two traders on the one hand, and the rest of the market on the other. "The game is addictive." says Steve "There is always action and because we make the rules, we can create games that last 2 hours or 2 months, with an unlimited number of players. The price developments in the virtual market are uncannily similar to actual forex market movements".
There are many themes such as 'winner takes all' and basing games on skills other than just outright profit. The platform is incredibly flexible. The on-line gaming providers should take a look at the potential before the financial brokers corner the market in what is shaping up to be the next lucrative development in the burgeoning on-line gaming market.
TraderMetrics was developed originally as a training tool for bank-based forex traders. It is mature and is industrial strength software, the system being thoroughly tested and proven over several years and is considered to be extremely authentic. It also runs off a live market feed, if required. It also comes in a 'stand alone' version and an evaluation can be downloaded from http://www.forextradermentor.com/tmsignup.html .
Steve would like to hear from potential partners who have the marketing reach to create a critical mass. The system is ready to run, so time to market is short."
