Gain Capital Group, a global provider of retail and institutional foreign exchange (forex) trading services, today announced two new technology integrations designed to provide enhanced support for algorithmic trading and streamlined FX prime brokerage services for institutional customers.
GAIN is now a liquidity provider to FlexTrade Systems' FlexFX platform, which provides robust algorithmic trading capabilities, and has also connected to Traiana's Harmony prime brokerage network. These new integrations, aimed at institutional clients such as hedge funds and investment managers, will build upon the existing technology relationship established between FlexTrade and Traiana in 2006.
"The integration of GAIN's trading platform with FlexTrade's FlexFX and Traiana's Harmony Network demonstrates our commitment to serving the needs of the institutional FX market," said Tom Levine, vice president of institutional sales for GAIN Capital. "Linking GAIN's trading platform directly into these innovative, best-of-breed FX tools directly addresses the growing appetite for FlexTrade's algorithmic trading and leverages the wide market acceptance of Traiana's Harmony Network for automating post-trade services," added Mr. Levine.
FlexTrade, the leader in broker-neutral algorithmic execution management systems, now offers direct access to GAIN's streaming price feed through FlexFX, providing users with a new liquidity source for their FX transactions. Clients using FlexTrade's algorithmic trading systems enjoy a complete STP connection to the Traiana Harmony prime brokerage network.
Traiana's Harmony Network is used by over 50 of the world's leading financial market participants and has become the market standard for post-trade processing of foreign exchange transactions. By connecting to the Traiana Harmony network, GAIN'S institutional clients and prime brokerage trading partners benefit from automated FX trade processing, including accurate, automated give-up notification and confirmation and seamless, straight through clearing and settlement.
