Here is what happened on Turtle Soup the trading week from Sunday, February 27 through Friday, March 4, 2011.
Trade Interceptor: Multi-Broker Forex App - Trade Interceptor unveiled its new multi-platform app supported by FXCM, GFT, ACM, FX Solutions, and MB Trading.
State Street Forex Probe Expands - We continue to follow the State Street saga. I guess $11.7 million in penalties wasn't enough for CFTC.
Forex Scam Goes Small Potatoes - David & Loredana Ortiz thought they got away with $232,000 of investors' money. CFTC thought not.
Who's Who in Forex: Masaaki Shirakawa - Japan's Governor of the Bank of Japan was tabbed the world's 6th most powerful by Newsweek.
FxPM Opens Miami Office - World Currency Trading opens a new Forex trading facility in Miami.
NFA Hires Edward Dasso For Surveillance - His official title is VP of Market Regulation but his official job is to oversee the surveillance of swap execution facilities (SEF).
FOREX.com Goes Commercial - Now that they've gone public, GAIN Capital is stepping up its pursuit of retail Forex traders with prime time commercials. I have to admit -- it is a cute commercial.
FXall Opens Mumbai Office - FXall expands into one of the world's fastest growing Forex markets.
Who's Who in Forex: Ben Bernanke - We finally got around to Big Ben in our Who's Who in Forex series.
NFA Bars CD Capital Management - As active as NFA and CFTC have been lately, I just can't figure out why firms don't pay more attention to how they run their businesses.
Forex, You & Taxes - Bob Green dispenses great advice on what you need to know about accounting for your Forex gains/losses when the IRS comes knocking.
So, the end of another trading week. Hope to see you again next week.
