International Capital Markets Pty Ltd (IC Markets) Australia’s leading true ECN forex broker today announced that it has relocated its cTrader servers to Equinix NY4 to further decrease trading latency of its ECN network. cTrader is a leading ECN platform with unrivalled speed and functionality, utilising low latency, high specification cloud infrastructure. Now for the first time traders from certain locations can benefit from superior execution speed by taking advantage of IC Markets cross connected low latency infrastructure within Equinix NY4.
IC Markets is the first broker globally to host cTrader in the Equinix NY4 data centre. This infrastructure change eliminates the need for data to travel across the Atlantic to Equinix LD5 in London, making this ultra low latency platform even faster for their clients.
“As the global leading ECN forex broker we constantly strive to improve our clients trading experience”, said Andrew Budzinski, Chief Executive Officer of IC Markets. “We are confident that relocation of the cTrader infrastructure to NY4 will allow our clients globally to better take advantage of our low latency forex and CFD trading ecosystem”.
“The cTrader platform infrastructure is designed for high-frequency low latency trading, the move to NY4 will allow IC Markets client base to take full advantage of the platform's capabilities” said James Glyde, Head of Business Development for Spotware.
The cTrader platforms have been carefully crafted to exceed the needs of all types of traders. cTrader is available in desktop, web and mobile formats giving traders ‘anywhere-anytime’ access to an intuitive and responsive platform with level 2 pricing, advanced charting and dozens of essential and added value features which are unavailable from other trading platforms. Also available is cAlgo for algorithmic traders looking to take advantage of the same plentiful benefits boasted by cTrader.
