Florida-based financial services firm iBolsa is to provide electronic futures trading in Spanish and Portuguese via FuturosOnline.
The trade platform offers online trading, research and analysis on the major US and European futures contracts as well as educational resources in English and Spanish. Portuguese will be added in the last quarter of 2001.
FuturosOnline specialises in index and e-Mini stock futures and features two trading platforms - Mtrade, which offers online access to place trades, view account activity and review statements and Mtrade Pro for the active trader.
Alvaro Catao, founder and CEO of iBolsa, says: "Adding the ability to trade futures through FuturosOnline is a great complement to our existing equity products, particularly considering the growing interest in e-Mini contracts and the launch of single-stock futures at year-end."
