cTrader to Access Gold-i’s Multi-Asset Liquidity From Matrix NETwork

cTraderSpotware Systems has partnered with Gold-i so that its FX and CFDs trading platform, cTrader, can access a wide range of multi-asset liquidity – including FX, equities, and cryptocurrencies – from the Matrix NETwork and utilize Gold-i’s liquidity management tools.


Alexander Geralis, Business Development Manager at Spotware, commented: “We believe in providing cTrader brokers with tested solutions that add value in how and what options they have to manage their price feeds and liquidity. Gold-i’s Matrix is a good tool in terms of aggregation, reporting and routing. Whilst these tools are traditionally used more by large brokers, start-up brokers are becoming increasingly sophisticated and demanding them as well.”

“We are pleased to have worked on this integration with Gold-i. Forward-looking integrations, such as this one with Gold-i, are part of our strategy and one of the reasons why cTrader continues to capture market share. In today’s competitive market the broker really needs to have all the options and flexibility available and we also believe that FX brokers need to offer a variety of asset classes as it is becoming increasingly difficult to specialize only in FX”, Geralis continued.

Tom Higgins, CEO at Gold-i, added: “We began this partnership at the request of a client who was keen to use the cTrader platform. The integration not only enables cTrader brokers to access the Gold-i Matrix NETwork but also provides increased flexibility and added value for our clients who may wish to use cTrader as an additional platform. cTrader has an excellent reputation amongst brokers of all sizes and we look forward to this new, mutually beneficial partnership.”

The Matrix NETwork extends Gold-i’s multi-asset liquidity management platform, Matrix, which offers multiple routing and aggregation methods, leveraging connections with over 70 Liquidity Providers. Supporting FX, CFDs and cryptocurrencies, Matrix NET is fully compatible with the Gold-i Crypto ss Switch.

In late 2019, Gold-i partnered with TraderEvolution Global, a FinTech provider of multi-market trading software, to leverage their multi-asset trading platform which provides connectivity to a wide range of LPs, ECNs, and exchanges, with Gold-i’s liquidity management system to target banks, prime brokers, and brokerages worldwide.

In September 2019, Gold-i partnered with Global Prime, an ASIC-regulated MetaTrader-only broker based in Australia and owned by Gleneagle Securities, to distribute its institutional liquidity of FX, CFDs (metals, indices, and cryptocurrencies) and NDFs.

In August 2019, Gold-i partnered with MiFID II compliance specialist SteelEye to provide seamless data flows to reduce human error and ensure the highest degree of data integrity for accurate regulatory reporting. This allowed brokers and other financial institutions to integrate their systems with SteelEye in real-time, significantly reducing the time and effort required to transfer data.

Earlier in 2019, Gold-i appointed Laurence Luo, former Technical Account Manager at PrimeXM, as Technical Support Engineer in the Shanghai team. He is responsible for providing technical support to Gold-i’s Asian-based clients and also manages client relationships. The appointment of Laurence Luo to Gold-i was the second executive move from PrimeXM that year. In January 2019, the firm announced ex-PrimeXM, Mike Dugdale, as a new senior sales manager. At PrimeXM, Dugdale carried out sales responsibilities, namely new business development, growing existing clients, and exploring new markets.
