As two of the forex market’s most respected analysts, they will serve as GFT’s new directors of research, boosting the company’s forex analysis and commentary with new ideas and techniques for trading, while also delivering new educational tools to the marketplace.

 

GFT President and CEO Gary L. Tilkin said that the addition of Lien and Schlossberg is a huge step forward for GFT, which is already one of the largest and most esteemed forex dealers in the world.

 

“Their credentials, reputation and integrity complement our core values and commitment to providing our customers with the highest level of service,” he said. “We’re looking forward to working with them to advance our initiatives as the premiere company in online trading and trader education worldwide.”

 

“I’ve had my eye on GFT for quite some time,” said Lien. “Their phenomenal growth over the last 10 years is a testament to the strength of the company and the people who work there. I’m very excited to join the team.”

 

Schlossberg echoed Lien’s comments, adding that the pair has a lot of new ideas to help GFT and its customers.

 

“In addition to the analysis and strategies we’ve been using for years, we’re getting ready to unveil some new techniques that may help forex traders enhance their trading strategies and identify more trading opportunities,” he said.

 

Before joining GFT, Schlossberg was a senior currency strategist at Daily FX. His career began more than 20 years ago with Drexel Burnham Lambert and he has experience trading forex, equities, options and stock index futures. He is the author of several market analysis books and is a regular guest on CNBC and Bloomberg television. His daily currency research is regularly quoted by Reuters, Dow Jones and Agence France Presse newswires.

 

Lien was chief currency strategist at Daily FX prior to her new position with GFT. She is an internationally published author and forex professional with nearly a decade of experience using technical and fundamental analysis to trade spot forex and options. She has worked for JP Morgan Chase’s cross markets and foreign exchange trading groups, and she is frequently quoted on CNBC, Bloomberg, Fox Business and Reuters.

 

Together, they use a unique combination of technical and fundamental analysis to offer possible strategies and trade ideas. They’ll be responsible for providing analysis to GFT’s global network of individual and institutional customers, as well as financial media outlets.

 

Lien and Schlossberg will make their debut at the 2008 Forex Traders Expo in Las Vegas, September 12-13. Expo attendees are invited to stop by GFT’s booth to meet Lien and Schlossberg and find out more about how they can obtain their exclusive research through GFT.
