In addition to low spreads, ThinkMarkets has enhanced its trading infrastructure by increasing the number and quality of servers co-located at LD5 & HK1 data centers for low latency order execution and bolstered its back-end architecture and development of proprietary execution algorithms.

These are crucial requirements for our traders, and we have always given this aspect of our offering the most time and resource.

ThinkZero is the by-product of our institutional trading specialists teams working bottom-up to devising and create a product that challenges the status-quo and hence we believe that it’s one of best solutions in the market- the results speak for themselves.”
