smartTrade Technologies announced today that it has been selected by London Capital Group (LCG) to provide them with liquidity enhancement solutions. Under terms of the deal, LCG has deployed smartTrade’s LiquidityFX private cloud solution, which is used to aggregate, distribute and monitor FX liquidity from external sources to customers.
The addition of LiquidityFX technology comes as LCG had licensed and deployed Algoweb as its main liquidity management software last year, as well as focused on supporting the MetaTrader 4 platform to customers. Explaining how the LiquidityFX deployment fits with LCG’s previous technology setup, David Vincent, CEO of smartTrade Technologies, stated to Finance Magnates that their products are integrated to work together, with Algoweb responsible for writing algorithms to handle and price liquidity, and operating within the LiquidityFX infrastructure.
The combination is then used to connect, price and manage liquidity to end-user customers trading with the MetaTrader 4 platform. With the deployment, LCG’s trading systems will be housed in smartTrade’s private cloud with co-locations in New York, London and Tokyo. For end-user customers, the multiple connectivity points provide lower latency as they connect to the closest co-location connection point.
