PFGBEST MT4 Retail Forex Trading Platform
Adds 8 New Currency Pairs
and Now Offers Mini–sized Contracts on 28 Currency Pairs

CHICAGO, February 26, 2009 — PFGBEST today announced that its BESTDirect MT4 forex trading platform has extended its advantage in the electronic forex trading industry by adding a number of additional currency pairs and mini–sized currency pairs to its system.

"Here again we have responded to pent–up demand from brokers and traders for a forex platform with convenient and fast, direct access to the huge liquidity in foreign exchange markets, by supplying forex contracts that they want to trade," said PFGBEST President and Chief Operating Officer Russ Wasendorf, Jr.

Adding these currency pairs to the array of contracts that can be traded on MT4 satisfies the need for world monies to trade beyond the seven "majors", or most actively traded and liquid of the currencies. The majors are EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/JPY, USD/CHF, AUD/USD and USD/CAD. Now, the PFGBEST MT4 electronic forex trading platform offers 21 additional currency pairs, and mini–sized contracts on all 28 pairs.
