FXCM Pro now onboarding clients with FlexTrade’s MaxxTrader

LONDON and SYDNEY, Australia and JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, March 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — FXCM Group, LLC (‘FXCM Group’ or ‘FXCM’), a leading international provider of online foreign exchange and CFD trading, announced today that FXCM Pro is beginning the process of onboarding clients with FlexTrade System’s “MaxxTrader” solution across the LD4 hosting centre.

This announcement follows from the recent news in late 2019 detailing the initial launch of the partnership between FlexTrade and FXCM Pro.

FlexTrade’s MaxxTrader is an end-to-end, dedicated and customisable solution covering all products including FX Spot, Swaps, NDFs, CFDs, and Commodities which will be rolled out across all major hosting centres with NY4, TY3 and SG1 following closely behind LD4.

MaxxTrader supplements FXCM’s existing liquidity and execution solutions, providing a significant edge in areas such as bank and non-bank liquidity customisation, connectivity between market makers and takers, reporting, and measuring best execution.

These technology partnerships contribute to FXCM Pro’s ability to offer one of the most competitive pricing models in the market. FXCM Pro is continuing to further develop its use of technology to remain a market standard, both in its offering and pricing.

Mario Sanchez, Managing Director & Global Head of FXCM Pro Sales: “When we began working with FlexTrade late last year, our aim was to leverage its innovative technology to provide an efficient trading experience for our FXCM Pro customers. By beginning the process of onboarding clients to LD4, we are taking the next steps in the journey of our partnership and realising our initial aim. Through this partnership, we will be able to provide our customers with enhanced trading execution alongside significant cost-savings through low-latency solutions.

“We look forward to further distributing these benefits to customers as we look to continue the roll-out among the other main data centres around the world.”
