2012 In Review: XEMarkets (Trading Point)

This broker began 2012 as Trading Point and finished it as XEMarkets. However, the re-branding wasn't the only thing this broker did throughout the year. Let's find out more. 

 
Late in 2011, one Trading Point customer made a withdrawal of a million dollars – and the broker started 2012 by telling the success story of this forex millionaire
 
Then, for a while, it kept quiet and we figured that it was just laying low for no reason – what's more, all promotional activities kept going on (take the 100% forex bonus promo for new and existing customers from May, for example) – so Trading Point got us fooled there! 
 
Then in July the big surprised was unveiled: Trading Point had launched a new brand, XEMarkets, and was about to transfer all operations to it. 
 
The new brand jumped in with a number of cool features and benefits – the pimped MetaTrader 4 (MT4) trading platform, for example; binary options trading; leverage of up to 1:888; free webinars; multilingual economic calendar, outstanding customer support, etc. The two brands are still functioning up to date, however the plan is for Trading Point to be completely melted into XEMarkets in the foreseeable future. 
 
In September XEMarkets operations were already in full swing and the customers were just as happy as they had used to be at Trading Point, so the broker headed to a well-deserved vacation in Malaysia. Only, it wasn't really a vacation and XEMarkets did in fact host an interactive forex seminar
 
At the beginning of October, XEMarket's traders were greeted with a deposit bonus of 50% up to $3,000 – for both new and existing customers. At the end of the month it was only new sign-ups who could benefit from a bonus – the Double Up Welcome bonus offered by the broker. 
 
In November another of Trading Point's brands – MegaTradeFX – was consolidated under the XEMarkets hat. MegaTradeFX customers were transferred to XEMarkets and MegaTradeFX shut down. 
 
With that, all the brands of the Cypriot company were gathered together under a single brand and Trading Point was ready to continue offering excellent service to all its clients under the name XEMarkets. 
 
In my humble opinion, that was a strategically wise end of the year, and I'm guessing we'll see a lot more from that broker in 2013.
