“Matrix Net helps them to increase their liquidity distribution capabilities and enables our broker clients to access liquidity in an optimal way. We expect significant interest from major liquidity providers and larger brokers who are looking to provide their own liquidity,” Higgins explained.
Multi-asset class solution
Gold-i’s latest product supports FX, CFDs, and cryptocurrencies under one umbrella. The evolution of the needs of the retail brokerage industry requires technology that can accommodate several different asset classes in one product.
Gold-i’s bridge to MT4 and MT5 along with the company’s Crypto Switch product launched last year secured brokers with a diversified product offering from the cryptocurrency side. With volatility in the cryptocurrency space, unabating traders are looking towards alternative asset classes.
The cryptocurrency shift that started in the final quarter of the year, imploded in the first quarter of this year. As volatility in FX and stocks picked up materially traders were less keen to commit substantial funds to trading cryptocurrencies when compared to the final quarter of 2017.
