London-headquartered brokerage company CMC Markets has announced a new integration to its CFD liquidity offering. The company has partnered up with FlexTrade Systems to enlarge the scope of its offering. The company’s multi-asset execution management system has been widely acclaimed by the industry as accommodating the needs of the buy and sell-side of the industry.
CMC Markets is adding to its CFDs liquidity offering, a step aimed at broadening the distribution of the company’s liquidity outside of traditional channels like FIX API. Wider access to the product should enable a more efficient market.
Commenting on the news, the Head of Institutional at CMC Markets, Richard Elston, said: “We already offer multi-asset API feeds to institutional counterparties. This allows them to plug into our tier-one liquidity using FIX protocol and other popular fintech solutions.
“We see providing access to this flow using a broker-neutral execution management trading system as a valuable extension of the service. The easier we can make it for other providers to access our liquidity, the more efficient our own market will become,” Elston explained.
FlexTrade’s EMS FlexTRADER is a broker-neutral solution that enables clients to control their proprietary algorithms from end to end.
“Combining CMC Markets’ liquidity service with our own innovative technology, provides clients with a comprehensive and market-leading brokerage solution for FX, Precious Metals and CFDs,” commented the Head of FX solutions at FlexTrade, Manish Kedia.
CMC Markets’ CFDs liquidity will not be available as a default to all FlexTrade clients. Liquidity takers that are interested in accessing the offering comprised of 85 CFDs on indices, commodities and treasuries must request access.
