FC Stone is one of the largest forex liquidity providers in the market and already entered the forex market through a collaboration with Integral in creating the StoneX platform. FC Stone is also Currenex’s white label. Now FC Stone seems to be making its steps into the retail forex market by offering its liquidity natively through ActForex’s platform which is used by many retail brokers. This would make it much easier for them to tap into FC Stone’s liquidity – rather than going to them directly and working on the integration. This is the issue that concerns many mid size brokers now – the bigger you get the more deals and traders you need to hedge out and thus the quest for finding and integrating the right liquidity sources begins. For Metatrader brokers this demand created the need for bridges like Boston Technologies’ and the use for forex Prime Brokers like ODL. Having it all already plugged in into your platform makes setting a brokerage up more effective.
New York, NY, January 4, 2012 – ActForex, the leading provider of independent retail trading platforms, is pleased to announce today the addition of FCStone, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of INTL FCStone Inc., as one of its highly esteemed clients.
“We are very gratified to have entered into a business relationship with this esteemed company,” said ActForex CEO, Ilya Sorokin, “and feel confident that our technology will make a formidable contribution to their operations.”
ActForex has been an innovator in providing cutting-edge trading platform technology for Forex and many other financial instruments on a global basis.

“As a prime brokerage company having a liquidity relationship with twenty-two of the world’s largest financial institutions, adding the ActForex platform to our lineup of trading solutions was a logical choice,” Joseph Conlan, Global Head of FX Sales at FCStone, remarked. “We look forward to working with them.”
