SHANGHAI, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The FX market has more than a decade of globalization, and has become, especially in recent days, the world's biggest financial trade market. According to reports by the BIS, in 2016, RMB has become the world's liveliest emergent market currency. From 2013 to 2016, RMB trade volumes have grown significantly. Average daily volume across those three years went from 120 Billion US Dollars to 202 Billion US Dollars. The FX financial market includes both institutional trade as well as retail trade. Among them, there are participants such as the central banks and global banks. Domestically, China's major banks are also strategically participating in CNH (Offshore RMB) trade. The Fintech market is developing extremely fast in China. Using securities and funds as an example, China's securities and funds market have reached volumes of 6 and 8 trillion RMB, respectively. As an example, Hunson is a firm with valuation exceeding 28 Billion RMB and 2.2 Billion RMB in annual revenue. Thomson Reuters China, from just selling trading solutions alone, can generate 1 Billion USD per annum in revenue. Platinum Analytics is a firm which provides just such solutions in service of FX financial institutions, providing platforms, terminals, and solutions. Platinum Analytics has several flagship products under its brand, such as Platinum Pages, a data terminal, PATS (Platinum Analytics Trading System), a smart trading platform, and an ECN (Electronic Communications Network, which provides smart order routing among various banks, exchanges, brokers, and corporates) specializing in CNH volumes. Platinum Page is a next-generation, algorithm focused data terminal with a robust data exchange platform as a foundation. It provides such functionalities such as smart order routing, market prediction and market indicator calculation. Compared to century old brands like Reuters Terminals, the Platinum Page is able to pull up a smaller subset of FX financial data, and give traders more flexibility in what they want to see. The PATS trading platform provides traders with tools for analysis, algorithmic trading and order routing. Platinum Analytics, in building this platform, registered and utilized many key patents, such as the PAX trade protocol, the PDEE Data exchange engine, and smart order routing algorithms. Platinum Page and PATS are both tools for traders, but the ECN is a liquidity platform and a future market for CNH. It is here that Platinum Analytics really has space to grow. Kelvin Zheng, prior to founding Platinum Analytics, has had 16 years of experience in the financial market. He believes that the fast growing CNH market will create demand and opportunities for a platform which can facilitate the exchange of trade and data. Platinum Analytics hopes to compete with the likes of FXALL, 360T, and EBS through a Chinese angle of attack, hoping to create a strong influence in the CNH market. According to Kelvin Zheng, as of now, Platinum Page and PATS have finished development and have entered the market. It is currently being used by signed clients such as Tencent's Webank, GTJA Securities, Xinhua, and one of the top 5 State-owned Banks. Platinum's ECN is slated to go production in the second half of 2017. Currently, Platinum Analytics has offices in Singapore and Hong Kong, in preparation of their push into the international market. In December of 2016, Platinum Analytics received a seed round investment from PGA Venture Partners. PGA Venture Partners is a venture capital firm managed by LUN Partners Group. It primarily invests in seed to growth stage companies in the Financial Technology (FinTech), Educational Technology (EdTech) and Entertainment & Digital Media Technology (EnTech) sectors. Besides providing financial resources, PGA Venture Partners also actively supports Platinum Analytics in expanding its businesses in the global market and facilitates cooperation between Platinum Analytics and other portfolio companies.

Earlier today, Forex and CFD trading website Online Brokers Australia published a thorough and unbiased consumer review of Forex broker, Vantage FX . The conclusion being that while it excels with RAW ECN forex commission of only $3.00 with competitive raw ECN spreads. The foreign exchange broker however, unfortunately loses points as they do not provide contracts for difference (CFDs) on equities, however this is of no consequence to those not trading equities. While other “run of the mill” consumer review sites often focus solely on promoting just the good qualities of a product in order to make affiliate sales, Online Brokers Australia strives to tell the complete story. Stuart Young, Founder and Reviewer at Online Brokers Australia said “Our reputation is immensely important to us. If we don’t tell the truth, we serve no benefit to the online trading community. If people can’t trust us, then we have failed in our mission to provide the very best broker reviews, and make it easy for online traders to choose a quality broker. That’s why we don’t hide behind “faceless” reviews like many other comparison web sites do.” The following extract makes a good summary of the review: Vantage FX review has revealed a great all-round, award winning ECN / STP Forex broker. Their pricing is very competitive, excellent customer service and execution combined with a good range of ECN Forex pairs. Active Forex traders can also earn 8.88% interest on their account balance… just meet the monthly volume target to qualify. This is a unique offering among Forex brokers! Online Brokers Australia was created by Stuart Young in 2014. Stuart Young got the idea for the site when he saw the need to provide a review and comparison site that actually made the broker selection process easy. Since it first went online, Online Brokers Australia has published many reviews on products in the Forex trading market and always aims to make it easy to choose a reputable, Australian regulated, Forex broker who will meet traders needs, with its reviews. Stuart Young also adds “For any consumer wanting to check the legitimacy of a review, or know if they can trust the source, I advise them to ensure they know who is actually behind the review or web site. Don’t trust such an important decision on information from a web site that doesn’t clearly state the person/s behind it and their experience.” Online Brokers Australia’s complete and unbiased write up and review of Vantage FX can be found at https://www.onlinebrokersaustralia.com.au/reviews/vantage-fx/ For more information, please visit https://www.onlinebrokersaustralia.com.au

HONG KONG--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A study was conducted by Guangzhou Sport University on the patented technology Anti Gravity System™ (AGS) designed by AGS FX Creations. The AGS patented technology is similar to a suspension system integrated into a backpack. In response to the motions that are generated, this design is slightly springy, and it makes the backpack load feel a lot lighter. Based on the test conducted, the AGS technology results showed a slower rate of cervical back muscle fatigue, quicker muscle recovery, better stability and improved posture when compared to a traditional backpack without AGS technology. The test also concludes that under the appropriate walking pace, AGS technology can potentially reduce the risk of musculoskeletal injuries and muscle fatigue associated with carrying heavy backpack loads. The reason for this is because AGS backpack is able to compensate for the dynamic load. Biomechanical and physiological measurements were taken from 12 subjects (19 +/- 1.8 years old) who did no strenuous exercise two days prior to the test and are in healthy conditions (no acute or chronic illness). Two trials were conducted two days apart from each other. One was the control group where the participants wore a backpack with no AGS technology. The second group was the test group where the participants wore a backpack with AGS technology. For each trial, the participants carried the same amount of weight (8-10% of their body weight) and walked on a treadmill at 4.5km/h for 30 minutes. The Surface Electromyography measurement of the neck extensor, trapezius muscle, latissimus dorsi, and erector spinae muscle were taken along with gait and kinematics analysis. AGS FX Creations recognized the problem associated with heavy backpacks and hence has been working towards a solution since 2014. At first an AGS shoulder strap was invented. The shoulder strap is made from a highly elastic material so that when the user walks, a slight springy motion occurs. Based on user feedback, the shoulder strap made the carrying load feel lighter. Over time FX Creations incorporated that suspension idea into their backpacks, hoping to fight heavy backpacks. AGS FX Creations is a sister brand of FX Creations. It is committed to the development of innovative bags to relieve burdens carried by users. The brand aims to enable daily carriers to experience comfort while maintaining a stylish look without effort.
