Forex.com - The First Broker To Offer Currency Contracts on ICDX

Nov 26 2012
By
Forexbrokerz.com

At the end of Q3, Forex.com published some interesting metrics: while the retail forex business had not increased dramatically, the company reported a growth of 93% in its institutional business. Apparently, Gain Capital – the company behind the Forex.com brand – has shifted its focus from retail to institutional customers – and the its agreement with the Indonesia Commodity and Derivatives Exchange (ICDX) only comes to prove that. 

 
The ICDX is Indonesia's largest futures exchange and recently it became the first one to receive regulatory approval from COFTRA (Indonesia's Commodity Futures Trading Regulatory Agency) to offer currency products. The exchange is planning to launch 27 currency contracts in the first quarter of 2013.
 
With the newly signed agreement between ICDX and Gain Capital, the latter will provide liquidity services for ICDX's currency contracts through the GTX platform. GTX will connect its current global institutional liquidity network to ICDX  and this way ICDX's clients will be getting an easy access to price discovery, trade execution and algorithmic trading
 
“This partnership is unique in that allows ICDX to offer deep liquidity in these new currency products from day one, while also providing them with a secure and scalable platform that supports high trading volumes with ultra-low latency matching and post trade capabilities,” said Glenn Stevens, CEO of GAIN Capital. “In addition, existing users of our GTX platform will benefit significantly from their ability to access the unique liquidity that partnering with an established international exchange provides.”
 
“ICDX is committed to creating a robust venue for exchange-traded currency products in Indonesia, and our partnership with GTX accelerates our time to market tremendously,” added Megain Widjaja, ICDX's CEO. “GTX offers a turn-key, highly flexible technical solution that provides us an efficient means to access liquidity and allows us to support the trading activity of Indonesian institutions and investors who wish to access this important asset class.”
