 Some of our customers 
 DMA 
No need for 'price feeds' because executable liquidity from banks, ECNs and from other LPs is aggregated and delivered to traders.
 NDD 
No need for dealers because there are no re-quotes, no 'accept' and 'reject' buttons to press, and no price improvements to 'manage'.
 STP 
No need for bridges, plugins or 3rd party software because orders are routed directly from traders to the market over FIX.
 Liberating Developers 
Developers can breathe out. Use an IDE like Visual Studio to write robots and indicators for a platform that's based on market standards.
 Liberating Traders 
Traders are safe. They're part of the global FX market with cTrader. And unlike other platforms, there's no risk of interference with your trading.
 Liberating Brokers 
cTrader gives brokers a valid choice, it opens horizons, boosts profitability, adds credibility. And it restores the industry's positive name.
 Aligned Interests 
cTrader allows brokers and traders to succeed together by eliminating the conflict of interest inherent in other platforms.
 Longer LTV 
Lifetime value of your customers grows with cTrader, bringing marketing expenditure down and customer retention up.
 Larger Volumes 
cTrader clients deposit larger amounts, open larger ticket sizes, trade more frequently, and stay with their brokers for longer.
 Better Business Model 
Eliminate your risk book, enjoy larger predictable revenues and minimize volatility-dependence with cTrader.
 Larger Market 
Retail spot FX is only around 1/5 of the global spot FX daily volume. With cTrader brokers can tap into the larger global market.
 Better TCO 
Cost of ownership is up to 80% less because there is no new capex, no new hardware or software, and no new staff to employ.
 PaaS 
cTrader is a Platform-as-a-Service solution. No capex is required on the broker's part - no hardware or software investment is needed.
 IBM Cloud 
Our hardware is a cluster-based, fully-redundant, ultra-scalable state of the art cloud solution supplied by IBM, Cisco and VMWare.
