GAIN Capital Links with FX Technologies from FlexTrade and Traiana
New integrations provide GAIN’s institutional clients with greater access to algorithmic
FX trading and automated post-trade services
BEDMINSTER, N.J. –September 16, 2008 - GAIN Capital Group, a global provider of retail and
institutional foreign exchange (forex) trading services, today announced two new technology
integrations designed to provide enhanced support for algorithmic trading and streamlined FX
prime brokerage services for institutional customers. GAIN is now a liquidity provider to
FlexTrade Systems’ FlexFX platform, which provides robust algorithmic trading capabilities, and
has also connected to Traiana’s Harmony prime brokerage network. These new integrations,
aimed at institutional clients such as hedge funds and investment managers, will build upon the
existing technology relationship established between FlexTrade and Traiana in 2006.
“The integration of GAIN’s trading platform with FlexTrade’s FlexFX and Traiana’s Harmony
Network demonstrates our commitment to serving the needs of the institutional FX market,” said
Tom Levine, vice president of institutional sales for GAIN Capital. “Linking GAIN’s trading
platform directly into these innovative, best-of-breed FX tools directly addresses the growing
appetite for FlexTrade’s algorithmic trading and leverages the wide market acceptance of
Traiana’s Harmony Network for automating post-trade services,” added Mr. Levine.
FlexTrade, the leader in broker-neutral algorithmic execution management systems, now offers
direct access to GAIN’s streaming price feed through FlexFX, providing users with a new
liquidity source for their FX transactions. Clients using FlexTrade’s algorithmic trading systems
enjoy a complete STP connection to the Traiana Harmony prime brokerage network.
Traiana’s Harmony Network is used by over 50 of the world's leading financial market
participants and has become the market standard for post-trade processing of foreign exchange
transactions. By connecting to the Traiana Harmony network, GAIN’S institutional clients and
prime brokerage trading partners benefit from automated FX trade processing, including
accurate, automated give-up notification and confirmation and seamless, straight through
clearing and settlement.
GAIN has completed the necessary integration work, and is now established as a liquidity
provider to FlexTrade Systems’ FlexFX platform, and has also connected to Traiana’s Harmony
prime brokerage network.
