July / August 2012 • 13 July 2012 • Gaies Chreis, COO, MetaQuotes Software Corp
aies Chreis, COO of MetaQuotes Software Corp., says that internet trading has recently reached an interesting stage in its development. Until recently it was possible to be successful by offering traders a good trading platform, but those days are gone.
A good trading platform is still high on the list of requirements although this alone is no longer the main criteria. In addition to having a convenient and functional platform, there is now a requirement for powerful Automated Trading, Mobile Applications and Additional Services.
The rise of automated trading is clear for all to see – the use of trading robots is already an important part of the professional activity of many traders. The number of such traders continues to grow and their programs have become more and more complex.

May 2012 • 8 May 2012 • John Younghusband, Dataart
John Younghusband of Dataart reflects on how technological developments have changed the face of FX trading.
As with the stock and commodity exchanges, where new technology has increasingly replaced the traditional open outcry market floors, in foreign exchange the old methodology of banks trading desk-to-desk via dedicated private voice circuits is gradually disappearing. Recent growth in program computer trading is the result of technological developments; a combination of greater computing power, lower telephony costs and “fibre to the kerb” provision for faster connectivity.
Significant volumes of FX trading are done entirely electronically. This change in trading methodology started with the launch of screen trading systems by the banks themselves, such as Deutsche Bank’s ‘Autobahn’ and Barclays ‘BARX’ in the late 1990s. This touched off an arms race in the industry which continues unabated with the emergence of a plethora of competing platforms, each boasting new features and technological advancements.
