Global Forex Trading (GFT) has been chosen by Strategy Runner as the company’s first partner in the online foreign exchange trading market.
Online forex traders will have access to algorithmic trading architecture based on Strategy Runner’s technology and GFT’s forex dealing operation.
“We are constantly establishing high-quality partners to expand the variety of services we deliver to our trading customers,” says Gary Tilkin, president and CEO, GFT. “The Strategy Runner technology, coupled with GFT’s order execution capabilities, will provide automatic forex trading and order execution for customers who create their own rule-based trading strategies for the currency markets.”
Strategy Runner’s server-based technology aims to give forex traders access to fully automated algorithmic trading by using data integration tools to communicate between two separate software programs. The goal is to enable forex traders, money managers, systems developers and signal vendors to automate strategies created through TradeStation, Excel, Fix, Java or Visual Basic. These strategies can then be fully integrated to work with Strategy Runner’s platform, which executes forex trades through GFT.
“A real benefit of working with Strategy Runner is that the trade signals are automatically routed and reliably executed on GFT’s servers, which are located at fully redundant data centers,” says Muhammad Rasoul, executive vice president and COO, GFT. “This formula, combined with our reliable trade execution and over 99 percent uptime, is perfect for the 24-hour nature of the forex market.”
Strategy Runner’s multi-asset trading platform offers algorithm execution to coincide with discretionary trading that includes order-entry from charts and advanced order management capabilities, integrated into GFT’s trading system. Strategy Runner’s automation tools provide secure and centralized distribution and monitoring of unlimited systems and signals across multiple accounts all in real-time.
“We are glad to offer our customers and strategy vendors the ability to trade forex through GFT,” says Dr. Anna Becker, president and CEO, Strategy Runner. “The company’s well-known reputation in the forex market for quality of service and technology made it an easy decision.”
