Rather than offering its clients the somewhat ubiquitous but very familiar MetaTrader platform, ASIC regulated market maker MahiFX provides clients with its own proprietary desktop trading platform.
This week, the company has released its new desktop trading application, further reinforcing its corporate policy of in-house development rather than adopting third party technology.
Built using Adobe AIR 3 runtime technology, the new desktop application is fully compatible with both Windows® and Mac OSX operating systems.
Available as a free download, the small direct install programme is stored on the desktop or preferred folder on the hard-drive, leaving a convenient quick-launch MahiFX shortcut icon on the desktop.
According to MahiFX, the new application provides a feature rich trading experience that includes the ability to have multiple windows open simultaneously and drag them to different monitors and the ability to instantly access your trading account without first having to open a web browser.

Features of the new desktop application include:
• Convenient application shortcut to provide quick-launch instant access to MahiFX account direct from the MahiFX icon on the desktop
• The ability to have multiple windows open simultaneously and drag them to different monitors
• Enhanced performance unencumbered by browser resource limitations
• Ability to minimise application to task bar and still receive notification pop-ups
• Automatic, instantaneous and seamless platform updates executed upon each application start
MahiFX customers now have the option to choose between the web-based trading application that enables live currency trading from any browser or the downloadable installed desktop version according to their trading styles and preferences. Depending on where they are trading from, they can alternate between the two.
“Launching the desktop based version of the platform represents further evolution of the MahiFX product and service offering”, says David Cooney, MahiFX CEO. “The new desktop version will especially appeal to ‘power’ traders who primarily trade from one dedicated location, who want the convenience of launching the application from a shortcut on their desktop as opposed to accessing the platform through a browser, and who demand greater customisation in terms of the ability to more closely monitor their trading positions which the desktop multi-screen viewing feature provides.”
“Ultimately, we think our customers will appreciate having the choice of which version to trade on.”
The MahiFX desktop application for both practice and live accounts is available for easy download from the MahiFX platform login screen and is supported by recent versions of Microsoft® Windows® (including 64 bit editions) and Mac OSX.
