Trade Interceptor, a multi-broker forex trading platform, has released live trading capabilities on its desktop, iPad, iPhone and Android applications. This is a very interesting concept as the platform allows investors to trade with several forex brokers simultaneously, from a single interface. New features include Touch-Chart-TradingTM; real-time trading synchronization between the desktop and mobile apps; server-side price alerts; unlimited paper trading on the desktop; trading in the past, replaying historical data series for traders training; and multi-time frame, multi-currency trading simulation for strategy back testing. Traders interested in trading this way will need to open individual accounts with participating brokers and link their accounts to Trade Interceptor. I think it’s a great way of testing how your personal trading style works with various brokers. It’s a known fact that a strategy/execution style that works with one broker doesn’t necessarily work with another.
Trade Interceptor offers traders live trading with FXCM and Dukascopy. Other forex brokers including GFT, ACM, FXSolutions and MBTrading are currently under integration. The mobile applications can be downloaded for free from the Apple iTunes Store, the Android Market, the BlackBerry App World and the Windows Phone Marketplace. Access to the full desktop application is free after registration on TradeInterceptor.com website.
“Our objective is to give traders access to different liquidity providers – considering that many traders now have more than one broker account – combined with highly innovative features, at no cost”, explains Rodolfo Festa Bianchet, CEO of Riflexo, the software company which develops Trade Interceptor. “We believe that the volume of mobile trading will grow exponentially in the next 2 years and we are well positioned and prepared to satisfy this demand”, he adds.
Trade Interceptor was launched in July 2009 with the release of its informative mobile apps for iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Android and iPad. “The platform has registered over 35.000 users in the last 12 months and has 12.000 active traders. We are currently growing at 5.000 new free users every month, and, since the launch of the life trading capabilities, we are introducing approximately 20 new clients per week to our broker partners”, says Rodolfo Festa Bianchet. “The success of the platform and the ongoing appraisal and feedback we get from our clients shows that the market needs an alternative to existing technologies, and that the multi-broker technology is something that traders had been waiting for”, he concludes.

Trade Interceptor has also been designed as a professional training tool for beginners. The company offers free online education to help traders improve their trading skills, where Rodolfo Festa Bianchet shares the knowledge he has accumulated both as a trader and trainer for many years. The training features of Trade Interceptor are the direct result of his experience.
Trade Interceptor is powered by Riflexo, a Sofia-based software company, which has been developing real-time trading solutions for financial institutions and professional traders for the last 11 years.
