Throughout our 25-year history, we’ve worked hard to meet the ever-changing needs of our clients, arming them with the necessary insights to help them become successful self-directed traders, whether it’s through our award-winning education resources, up-to-the-minute market commentary or state-of-the-art trading tools. As such, we believe these awards recognise our ongoing commitment to better serving our traders.”
Commenting on the awards, Pierce Crosby, General Manager with TradingView said, “TradingViewers have spoken – based on user data, OANDA is our ‘Champion of Crowds’, the most popular broker on the platform as well as the best Forex and CFD broker. We’d like to say a big congrats to OANDA from all of us at Team TradingView and we’re looking forward to seeing how they will build on this impressive win for next year.”
