Forex industry predictions for 2014

1. Mobile trading takes over – like in other industries, mobile will become the key. Mobile trading volume will surpass the desktop. More advanced mobile platforms will be introduced.
2. More trading platforms – Metatrader use will begin a decline as niche alternatives pop up.
3. Forex broker consolidation – Europe and Japan. Look for FXCM to continue to buy up mid sized brokers. A merger between 2 top firms is in the cards. The failure of FXCM – Gain was just a test run.
4. Volumes rise – this has been pretty consistent each year. Brokers pray for this.
