“FXCM was thrilled to partner with CNBC to sponsor the new forex TV show. Bringing retail forex trading more mainstream especially in the United States is a focus for FXCM and with the help of a show like this on CNBC, it can be accomplished” said Drew Niv, CEO of FXCM. “As retail traders become more active in currency trading it only makes sense that they will be looking to the top business network to bring them relevant news, education and research.”
