Most firms running MT4 are hiring third-party expert providers.
Interesting analysis posted by MT4 solutions provider CMAP, on the decision Forex firms face in whether to set up and run MT4 on their own, or to hire a third-party firm such as CMAP and pay a volume-based fee for service. (Full disclosure – as you can see at right, CMAP is an advertiser on LeapRate).
In the past few months we have seen an increasing number of announcements from MT4 solution providers – everything from new mobile solutions to extra-low-latency capabilities – as the area heats up, and as Forex firms which had shunned MT4 for a long time (e.g. Oanda, Saxo Bank) have given up and added MT4 capabilities, given the large universe of traders who swear by it.
