Protrader Multi-Connect (PTMC), a trading platform for forex and contracts for difference (CFDs), said on Monday it has released a web application for users of devices with Linux and Mac operating systems that provides access to market data. The application is in a beta version and is available via any web browser.
The new application is already supported by two brokers – US retail forex giant Forex Capital Markets, or FXCM, and Protrader. More brokers are expected to add the app to their offering in the near future.
Since it is web-based, the new application does not require the download or install of any additional software. PTMC is a product of trading software developer PFSOFT, which is also the developer of the Protrader trading platform. It was released in January 2016. The platform is free and can be used by both institutional and retail traders and is available for desktop and mobile devices, as well as in a web-based version. It features a wide selection of tools for multi-asset trading, alerts watchlists, smart chart trading with multiple chart types, drawings and studies, as well as fully customizable interface.
Recently, the platform released AlgoStudio, a development tool and a programming environment for algo traders, and introduced a Code Base service, which provides a wide range of programming codes for download free of charge. The latest enhancement introduced in late May was the introduction of a new option that enables the configuration of a color scheme for each Fibonacci level tool.
Brokers that offer the PTMC platform are LMax Exchange, FXCM, Oanda, Protrader, Quandl, and Sigma Trading, while others are yet to be added to the list, including Interactive Brokers, Dukascopy, FxPro Group, MB Trading, and Gain Capital, aka Forex.com.
