FXCM Group, an online foreign exchange (forex) and contracts for difference (CFD) trading provider, announced this Tuesday that it has formed a technology partnership between its institutional business, FXCM Pro, and FlexTrade’s “MaxxTrader” solution.
MaxxTrader is FlexTrade’s white label trading system for sell-side institutions that operate in the forex markets. The system allows firms to privately aggregate and issue price information.
Furthermore, the MaxxTrader solution is a complete, turnkey front-end solution. This means that client orders can trade directly with the trading desk or back-to-back with all liquidity providers.
MaxxTrader to integrate into FXCM Pro
Under the agreement, MaxxTrader will be integrated into FXCM Pro’s existing suite of solutions. The institutional unit provides retail brokers, small hedge funds, and emerging market banks access to wholesale execution and liquidity. Through FXCM Prime, the unit also gives high and medium frequency funds access to prime brokerage services.
Commenting on the partnership, Siju Daniel, Chief Commercial Officer of FXCM Group, said: “We are thrilled to partner with FlexTrade, a truly innovative and leading technology provider in the space.”
