IC Markets - The First Australian Broker Offering cTrader

Oct 29 2012

Now that the Spotware software provider has obtained its ISO 27001 certification, its services must be getting more and more attractive. The company latest partnership is with the IC Markets forex broker that signed up for Spotware’s cTrader platform. Other brokers that offer cTrader are FxPro, Trader’s Way, Divisa Capital, and MF Financial. 

 
IC Markets already offer one true ECN platform – MetaTrader 4 (MT4), and while many of the functions of MT4 and cTrader are similar, the latter offers the advantages of inverted (negative) spreads, Volume Weighted Average Price trading, and partial fills. cTrader also supports a built-in private VPS functionality. 
 
With the cTrader platform, IC Markets clients will have access to a true ECN trading environment with liquidity from more than 50 providers. The platform allows for micro-lot trading of precious metals and 60 currency pairs at leverage of up to 1:400.  Commissions are reasonable - $50 per million dollars traded. 
 
cTrader’s spreads are super-tight and the execution is carried out in a fraction of a second – and that males the platform excellent for scalpers and those trading the news. Hedging and automated trading are also possible. 
 
Ilya Holeu, Spotware Systems Managing Director said: “We are pleased to be partnering with fast growing ECN broker, IC Markets. IC Markets are the first ASIC regulated Australian based broker to be offering the cTrader platform setting a new benchmark in the region”.
 
“IC Markets is committed to constantly improving our forex offering, the addition of cTrader to our range of forex trading platforms is testament to this,” added Andrew Budzinski, Managing Director of IC Markets.
 
Recently IC Markets reported significant growth in its operations but it didn’t really give any actual numbers. Given that the broker operates out of Australia, I hope that it won’t be affected by the upcoming changes suggested by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC). According to ASIC’s proposal, authorized forex brokers will be required to maintain a net capital of $500,000 and later on - $1 million; hopefully, IC Markets will not be amongst the financial services providers forced to leave Australia.
