What?

The multi-award winning Gold-i Gate Bridge is already recognised as one of the leading super low latency smart routing products available anywhere within the market place today.  Up until now, banks and brokers have used it as the most effective and cost efficient means of connecting MetaTrader, the most popular FX trading platform, to external or internal liquidity providers. 

With Gold-i’s latest innovation, the Gold-i Gate Bridge has been developed to enable multi-asset classes (futures, equities, CFDs and indices) to be added to MetaTrader4 or MetaTrader5.  Gold-i has developed its latest offering in partnership with PAT Systems, GL Trade (a Sungard product) Fastfill and LMAX.

Why?

Transforming MetaTrader into a multi-asset trading platform opens up a wealth of opportunities for brokers to grow their business amongst existing traders and also to attract new clients.  

To date, MetaTrader users have only had access to FX and OTC products.  Thanks to the revolutionary technology from Gold-i, brokers can now offer MetaTrader4 and MetaTrader5 users the opportunity to trade on-exchange futures, equities and indices as well as FX and other OTC products. Brokers can also benefit by broadening their MetaTrader platform, opening up new opportunities for MetaTrader4’s huge network of Expert Advisors (EAs) to create trading strategies for futures.

The high performance, feature-rich Gold-i Gate Bridge has won numerous awards for enabling retail brokers to access the same tools as institutional brokers and automatically covering all retail broker risks with banks in real time. It has filled a gap in the market by creating a level playing field for retail FX traders. Gold-i’s latest innovation builds on the success of the Bridge, extending its capabilities and helping brokers to manage their risk effectively in all asset classes. It is a major development in the industry.

When?

The Gold-i Gate Bridge for multi-asset class trading has been rigorously tested. It is now available from Gold-i and can be used on a global basis.
