FX liquidity and connectivity technology solutions provider PrimeXM and MT5 developer MetaQuotes have announced the release of PrimeXM’s MT5 integration gateway to their XCore system.
This execution and aggregation technology supports low-latency connectivity to over 120 leading providers of Forex and CFD liquidity, and is a very popular solution among institutional clients. Now, brokers can use the MetaTrader 5 Gateway to PrimeXM to access any liquidity provider on the market.
This integration solution takes into account all new features of the MetaTrader 5 platform, including support of the Market Depth feature. The new gateway features superior performance while preserving all the advanced features provided in the MetaTrader 4 Gateway to PrimeXM, which is used by 200 brokers around the world.
MetaTrader 5 Gateway to PrimeXM is delivered with a dedicated XCore system, providing for the efficient management of an entire brokerage business in a centralized environment. For each broker, XCore is installed in PrimeXM’s own fully serviced infrastructure in Equinix data centers located in London (LD4), New York (NY4) and Tokyo (TY3). Using the latest technologies, PrimeXM infrastructure provides the highest reliability and performance, and is co-located in the same data centers with all leading FX and CFD liquidity providers.
According to Cristian Vlasceanu, CEO of PrimeXM,
We have been actively testing the performance and functionality of our MetaTrader 5 integration with a number of key customers in a real environment since November 2016 achieving a first-class solution. Today we are proud to announce a new version of our gateway to MetaTrader 5 — the most advanced solution on the market. This innovation will allow us to provide brokers with leading technologies for connecting to global liquidity.
The integration of the XCore system with MetaTrader 5 features a wide range of professional tools for efficient liquidity and risk management, and at the same time provides direct high-speed access to global liquidity in the most cost-effective way for brokers. In particular, the combined solution allows brokers to serve institutional, professional and retail traders simultaneously within the same system without any technological limitations”, says Richard Bartlett, Head of Global Sales at PrimeXM.
In addition, PrimeXM can provide hosting for MetaTrader 5 servers in the same infrastructure where XCore and broker’s liquidity providers are located, ensuring data transfer from the MetaTrader 5 server to liquidity providers in less than one millisecond. Thus, brokers can achieve the highest possible speed and stable execution quality when trading with liquidity providers without having to create their own infrastructure and bear the costs associated with its support and maintenance.
