Forex Trading

Execute trades as fast as possible, regardless of location.

Latency of Forex Trading Erodes Transaction Revenue

Across the world, online traders demand 100 percent reliability and ultra-low latency from their forex trading sites. Whether trading stocks, currencies, or commodities, only superior reliability and responsiveness can ensure the execution of trades at the right time and the right price.

When an forex trading platform experiences downtime or delays ─ even just milliseconds ─ traders suffer huge losses and quickly abandon the platform, never to return. The result? Trading platforms with poor online performance are losing millions of dollars per day while their customer base dwindles.
