Integral, one of the largest forex technology providers, suffered from several outages which started Monday and lasted into Tuesday morning. The company wouldn’t immediately comment when contacted by Forex Magnates.
According to one industry participant: “Beginning around 8:35pm and lasting until approximately 7:30am (New York time) there were a number of extended disruptions to the Integral service. The disruptions seemingly affected both Integral’s API connections and direct GUI. No formal explanation has been released by Integral at this time, though some of the periods of disconnect lasted ~2 hours.”
