Metaquotes is on fire lately: lately releasing the long awaited iPhone app for its MT4 platform, connecting MT5 to CitiFX Pro’s liquidity and integrating with Singapore exchange among many other things.
Yesterday Metaquotes released an Adroid tablet version of its MT5 trading platform and now it sent an email to clients announcing the release of HotSpot gateway. HotSpot is not the largest ECN out there yet but it is certainly growing at impressive pace although just like all other ECNs out there it experienced a slowdown in January volumes.
Our company is pleased to announce the release of the gateway, which allows to integrate MetaTrader 5 trading platform with one of the largest ECN systems – Hotspot FXi. ECN (Electronic Communication Network) is an electronic system allowing to trade commodities. All orders entered in ECN are transferred to the unified requests database. The system selects appropriate orders automatically executing opposite orders with matching parameters (symbol, price etc.).
