Pragma Securities, a provider of quantitative trading technology for the financial services industry, has selected smartTrade Technologies to tap into its foreign exchange (FX) liquidity aggregation platform, according to a smartTrade Technologies statement.
Pragma Securities is an independent trading technology provider that utilizes a plethora of algorithmic trading solutions across a number of asset classes, including equities, futures, and Spot FX. More specifically, the group’s paramount trading platform, Pragma 360 FX, caters to banks and buy-side firms across the financial services industry.
Alternatively, the decision to rely on smartTrade Technologies and its LiquidityFX platform satisfies a need for the provider, satisfying Pragma Securities’ need for customization that can afford its customers liquidity aggregation via a broad spectrum of FX liquidity providers with quick time-to-market.
