GNI is to launch an upgraded version of its touch platform for trading equities, contracts for difference (CFSs) and futures from a single screen, using technology from Future Dynamics.
The new futures trading capability will be powered by the Internet version of Future Dynamics' crossfire electronic trading application. It will provide charts and news as well as the ability to trade equities and derivatives from the same screen.
GNI plans to launch the new version of the touch CFD system towards the end of third quarter this year, with FX being added in Q4.
Stephen Harragan, director of GNI, says: "We chose to combine the technical excellence of FD’s crossfire software with our touch CFD platform to give us the best single application for trading both equities and derivatives."
