Fortex goes HTML5: MT4 bridge settings now upgradable from smartphones

Fortex transitions from MetaTrader 4 bridge OMX interface to HTML5 allowing the MT4 bridge settings to be upgradable from smartphones.

North American FX platform technology and bridge provider Fortex has made a considerable upgrade to its product range, this time in the form of having transitioned its MetaTrader 4 bridge OMX interface to HTML5, which is a versatile markup language that is used for structuring and presenting content on the internet.

HTML5 includes detailed processing models to encourage more interoperable implementations as it extends, improves and rationalizes the markup available for documents, and introduces markup and application programming interfaces (APIs) for complex web applications, which is why it has become very popular with FX platform providers as well as brokerages that develop their own proprietary platforms.

For the same reasons, HTML5 is also a candidate for cross-platform mobile applications, because it includes features designed with low-powered devices such as smartphones and tablets.

One of the important facets that pertains to the latest upgrade from Fortex is that the liquidity bridge, now being based on HTML5, allows users to make changes to the quote maker, along with other execution parameters on a real-time basis without needing to reboot any devices.

FX brokerages can now change price configurations by accessing the bridge URL and applying settings.

As far as functionality and compatibility is concerned, the Fortex Bridge OMX Web Console works on all mobile devices and tablets, and access to the configuration service is provided via a secure connection in English and Chinese.

It is indeed most clear that today’s broker technology solutions providers are moving toward a very simplified modus operandi as far as brokerage interaction with platforms and infrastructure is concerned, certainly a far cry from the server farms and on-site support teams that proliferated retail brokerages just a few years ago.
