Gain Capital has finally completed the integration of VT Trader and will soon launch it. Gain Capital has acquired CMS Forex’s retail business and migrated all its clients to its proprietary platform and MT4. At the time CMS Forex’s clients trading on VT Trader platform have not been able to continue trading with Gain Capital as it wasn’t offering this platform. A fair amount of traders have commented on this blog and written to me to complain about the situation. Luckily this situation has been resolved fairly quickly and those accustomed to the VT Trader platform (which I personally like very much) can now resume their trading. These plans were also confirmed by Gain Capital’s CEO Glenn Stevens when I interviewed him right after the IPO.
I also managed to do a short Q&A with the folks at VT Trader. Below is also the official PR.
Q. Who is VT and who owns it?
A. VT Trader is a proprietary FX trading client built exclusively for CMS. VT Trader is owned by VT Systems. VT Systems is an affiliate of CMS Forex.
Q. Who will own VT’s product after the launch with Gain – is Gain just leasing it or buying it altogether? Any details about the structure/costs/etc?
A. VT Trader is fully owned by VT Systems. CMS will be the sole company with the ability to use VT, and has the ability to provide the platform to its IBs and White Label partners. Gain has no ownership rights or lease of VT Trader.
Q. Will anyone else be offering VT’s product?
A.Only CMS and its partners, through an IB relationship with Gain, will be able to offer VT.
Q. Will VT partner/lease/sell its product to another software firm such as Metaquotes/ACT?
A. We will not rule out anything but there are no such plans at this time.
Q. Future development plans for the product and VT itself?
A. The primary focus of this upcoming VT Trader release is to function within Gain’s backend systems (liquidity, reporting databases, risk management systems, etc). Most functionality for the users will be the same. There have been some enhancements, such as the addition of over 100 built in trading systems. Now that CMS is acting as a Super-IB of Forex.com, VT Systems can devote a greater percentage of resources to the continued development and innovation of VT Trader with a strong focus on improving the user experience.
