France is fast becoming a hot spot for FX and CFD trading as retail investors are increasing their participation in derivatives trading. Consequently organisers of the Salon du Trading are in their 7th edition as the demand for education and resources for financial traders is on the rise.
Andre Malpel, organiser of the event is a renowned figure in technical analysis, he believes the event is an excellent place where “traders get the best resources all under one roof”.
Since the French presidential elections the Euro had weakened dramatically hitting year lows in the region of 1.20. He adds “our event aims to give traders a formula on different techniques they can apply to find profitable opportunities but manage their risk, in falling and rising markets”.
France’s stock index, the CAC40 is trading at 3,531.82.
The two-day event is being held at the Espace Champerret in Paris. Since its inception the organizer has ensured the exhibition is free for all attendees. There are an estimated 16,000 visitors expected to visit over the 2 days.
