This lets investors watch the speed of price changes of assets relative to each other, and although on its own might just sound like something many platforms have, when used together with the PCI creation tool, the combined value could be enhanced, as a client may wish to add respective underlying instruments to a percentage chart either before or after creating a PCI, using the NetTradeX platform.

The grouping of displayed instruments was also reorganized in the lasts upgrade that brought the platform from version 2.5.1 (which is still the one listed on its main corporate website) to version 2.6.0 – the latest version in the new update, as told to Forex Magnates’ reporters by a company spokesperson.

The company is looking to enhance its CFD trading capabilities with the new tools provided, which it expects to add value to as a professionally described product. The developer of the platform is NetTradeX Corp, also part of the IFCM Group, with IFC Markets Corp a licensee of the technology.
