Global news leader International Business Times (IBTimes.com) and market research firm Forex Datasource announced the results of the 2010 FX Traders' Choice Awards during an award ceremony held in New York City on Aug 30, 2010.
This year, a total of 10 retail FX broker firms were honored from a pool of close to 90 brokers nominated by more than 1000 traders in 111 countries. The FX Traders' Choice Awards offer the highest recognition a broker firm could receive and the most reliable results to traders within the fast growing retail Forex trading market.
Because of significant disparities in broker preferences from people in various continents, the FX Traders' Choice awards fall into two major categories: brokers with the widest client acceptance worldwide and brokers with the highest client satisfaction by continent.
Among Global FX Brokers - those with highest client acceptance worldwide - the FX Traders' Choice Awards evaluated how clients ranked these brokers in five sub-categories: Overall, Trading Platform, Client Service Department, Account Department, and Funding Department.
This year's nominees designated as Global FX Brokers were: FXDD, FX Pro, FX Open, IBFX, FXCM, Oanda, Alpari UK, FX Solutions, Gain Capital (Forex.com), IG Markets, e-Toro, Easy-Forex, and Saxo Bank.
The top firm in each sub-category received an Eagle award, whereas the 2 runner-up firms were honored with a Falcon award. A total of 30 awards were announced.
For each continental leader, the FX Traders' Choice Awards granted its highest recognition, the Best FX Broker Eagle award. The top 2 runner ups in each continent received the Falcon award. To measure client satisfaction, Forex Datasource drew on its expertise of Net Promoter Score (NPS), a well recognized statistical method to determine what firm counts with the highest net percentage of highly satisfied clients (promoters).
