IBFX Announces the Launch of South African Rand (ZAR) Currency Pair Trading

PLANTATION, Fla., May 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IBFX Australia Pty Ltd (IBFX) today announced the launch of South African Rand (ZAR) currency pair trading. The currency pair USD/ZAR is currently trading at levels not seen since 2009. It has a pip value of about $1.08 per pip, which is lower than most currency pairs but has attracted interest because of its high volatility.

The South African Rand is one of 42 currency pairs that IBFX offers for trading. In addition to currency pairs trading, IBFX also offers clients trading in gold and silver, along with CFDs in oil and related products.

"There is a growing interest in forex trading in South Africa, and global interest from forex traders in the volatility of the rand" said Gary Weiss, President and COO of IBFX. "Offering the rand is one way in which we are working to meet the demands of our growing customer base."
