The philosophy behind these trading debates is consistent with Saxo Bank's commitment to democratise trading through open access to information and trading opportunities, values and attributes which are embodied in the new TradingFloor.com social trading platform. Saxo Bank successfully launched TradingFloor.com as a beta site on 23 January and now has 22,000 private and institutional members ready for the full launch on 29 April.

Torben Kaaber, CEO, Saxo Capital Markets UK said: "Technology is empowering a new generation of traders and in doing so it is evolving trading behaviours. This new trading environment is being driven as much by financial market dynamics as it is by the way we consume news, make trading decisions and interact with the markets. This event aims to provide a platform for debate on these important issues that are driving liquidity and decision-making."  

In recognition that trading technology is playing an important role in democratising access to trading, our first debate will explore the homogenisation of retail and institutional trading opportunities and the ability of technology to level the playing field between the two.

This will be followed by a number of debates exploring current themes driving financial markets and trading activity: geopolitical instability and the future of energy supply amid growing tensions between Russia and the West; the future of Europe in the wake of the European parliamentary elections and the rise of populist movements; and the outlook for global economic recovery as central banks reverse the policies that have guided their actions since the onset of the global financial crisis.

The event will conclude with a debate on crypto-currencies, a topic which continues to fascinate and polarise financial market participants.

"It is the topic which embodies this new convergence of worlds - traditional financial markets with innovations in trading and technology," added Torben Kaaber, CEO, Saxo Capital Markets UK.

#TradingDebates - The Future of Social Trading event will take place on 30 April 2014 at the British Museum between 2pm and 6pm. http://www.tradingdebates.com
