FXCM Group today announced the release of a new web trading platform, Trading Station Web 2.0, which essentially introduces a suite of new improvements exclusively launched for its HTML5 web terminal. The new utility represents the group’s effort to help users tap the same features they get through FXCM’s flagship proprietary platform, Trading Station Desktop.
Trading Station Web 2.0 helps address a growing need for integrating many of FXCM’s trading tools and resources, allowing speedy assembly of new and existing components into a bespoke HTML5 application.
The framework is also built on top of HTML5 common operating layer for financial applications, allowing for ease of use and adoption for users. This includes core desktop functions such as FXCM Cloud, where traders can store their user profile and chart settings.
Developed in HTML5, it supports Mac and PC users and all major browsers, using efficient messaging distributed via Content Distribution Networks.
FXCM said the next generation HTML5 platform will feature a library of over 50 customizable technical indicators. It also secures full trading capabilities including a wide range of chart types, an integrated news feed, and robust chart management features.
FXCM’s customers in select regions can access the new web trading platform immediately, and the platform will be rolled out to the rest of its customer globally in the Q1 2018.
Brendan Callan, CEO of FXCM Group, said: “FXCM maintains its laser focus on what really matters as a broker: offering superior execution, competitive pricing, and a diverse suite of innovative trading tools, as well as enhancements to our current technology and launching new product offerings. I’m excited to have our customers trading on the new platform, I’m so proud of all the work our team has put into the product and I’m looking forward to announcing the many other projects we have been working on throughout 2018.”
