MANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Feb. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney joins fellow Red Devils stars Sergio Romero, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in an innovative new video series launched today by the club's global partner Swissquote, demonstrating the synergies between FX trading and football.

See the videos here:

The "Take the Lead" series showcases the similarities between players and traders in a unique split screen format. Created from a point of view angle, the video details two visions in 180 degrees from the perspective of a player and a trader, giving viewers a unique 360˚ insight into the mental and physical preparation required away from the football pitch as well as with forex trading.  

During each video, we see each player mirroring the actions of a trader -- Rooney limbers up and prepares to leave for a game, while goalkeeper Romero and his trading counterpart take us through their morning routines. We see young striker Rashford video calling and taking advice off his hero and Manchester United legend Andrew Cole, before Martial gets suited and booted for a black tie event.

Each video in the series is also set in a different living space, representing how FX trading is not restricted to the office or trading floor, but is in fact something that anyone can manage on the go in real-time in any environment.

Marc Burki, CEO and Co-Founder of Swissquote, Manchester United's first Official Global Forex & Online Financial Trading Partner added:

"There are actually a lot of similarities between the worlds of football and trading, with regards to many of the skills and knowledge required to be successful. Through the 'Take the Lead' series, we wanted to highlight these emotional connections while allowing the viewer to see how they are incorporated in the Manchester United's player's everyday lives, through four different scenarios. The use of 360˚ technology is also perfectly aligned to our position as an innovative broker. Moreover, we recently introduced as the first bank in Europe a virtual reality trading application, especially designed for use with virtual reality helmets.

"At Swissquote we take pride in our tactical approach, providing quality expertise and advice which enables our clients to make the best possible decisions to stay one step ahead in the fast-paced and ever-changing world of Forex trading."
