Global Forex Trading is pleased to announce that it has been chosen by Strategy Runner as the company’s first partner in the online currency trading market (forex). Online forex trading customers will have access to high-performance algorithmic trading architecture, based on Strategy Runner’s unique server-based technology and supported on the backend by GFT’s reliable and experienced forex dealing operation.

“We are constantly establishing high-quality partners to expand the variety of services we deliver to our trading customers,” said Gary Tilkin, president and CEO, GFT. “The Strategy Runner technology, coupled with GFT’s order execution capabilities, will provide automatic forex trading and order execution for customers who create their own rule-based trading strategies for the currency markets.”

Strategy Runner’s server-based technology gives forex customers access to the next generation of fully automated algorithmic trading by using seamless data integration tools to communicate between two separate software programs. This will allow forex traders, money managers, systems developers and signal vendors to easily automate strategies that have been created through TradeStation, Excel, Fix, Java or Visual Basic. These strategies can then be fully integrated to work with Strategy Runner’s platform, which executes forex trades through GFT.

“A real benefit of working with Strategy Runner is that the trade signals are automatically routed and reliably executed on GFT’s servers, which are located at fully redundant data centers,” said Muhammad Rasoul, executive vice president and COO, GFT. “This formula, combined with our reliable trade execution and over 99 percent uptime, is perfect for the 24-hour nature of the forex market.”

Strategy Runner’s multi-asset trading platform offers hands-free algorithm execution to coincide with discretionary trading that includes order-entry from charts and advanced order management capabilities, all integrated into GFT’s trading system. Strategy Runner’s automation tools provide secure and centralized distribution and monitoring of unlimited systems and signals across multiple accounts all in real-time.

“We are glad to offer our customers and strategy vendors the ability to trade forex through GFT,” said Dr. Anna Becker, president and CEO, Strategy Runner. “The company’s well-known reputation in the forex market for quality of service and technology made it an easy decision.”
