GraspFX was founded on simple parameters – Craig Barton and Simon Hamilton; friends and business associates for many years - agreed that with the exponential expansion of the retail FX trading environment, it appeared there was the potential for a vast amount of people to lose money, and quickly. Current statistics show that between 85% to 95% of retail trading accounts fall short of expectations.

Our extensive market research revealed many interesting facts, however the main reason was very simple; most people that attempt to make money trading currencies have very little understanding of the factors that make currency pairs move and therefore have no strategic or logical reason to place a trade.
