How Forex companies should market their Offer to target Chinese clients 

 Forex trading market in China is not really easy to break into. The Chinese government has settled really strict rules for western companies that want to lead the forex trading business in China. Here, we will give you some reasons:

  • First, the technical system in China is really different from other international models. Those differences can lead to some complications and difficulties which may affect China’s economic growth.
  • Second, forex trading is seen as a too risky operation and dangerous because of too much exposure for Chinese people. Due to this huge population, if there is any imbalance in the economy, it could have a consequent impact on social stability because of losses in savings.

The main interesting point in China about the forex trading market is the fact that most transactions are traded with the Yuan. Goods and services are priced in Yuan rather than dollars. To give you some figures, last year China’s trading goods exceed 4 trillion dollars. Chinese foreign market is dominated by the inter-bank and retail markets for example you have the CFETS which is a trading platform supervising the inter-bank market, PBOC is a regulatory authority…etc

The operations of foreign exchange trading in China are carried out by a number of banks and foreign exchange trading agencies. But how those companies can succeed to promote their forex trading in this fierce competition and in a country of strict rules?
