Liquidity Bridge from Tools for Brokers serves large brokers

Karthik Subramanian

Tools for Brokers, one of the largest companies in the FX industry that focuses on building tools for FX brokers, has built a trade processor liquidity bridge that can scale according to the size of the broker and their trade volumes.

The company has been well known in the FX broker circles for pushing through a variety of tools like PAMM/MAMM, CRMs, report generation tools, and other such tools that make the job of a broker easier.

Scalable Liquidity Bridge

Though it had a liquidity bridge offering for a long, it has managed to recently upgrade the bridge to make it even more reliable, scalable, and more convenient for the FX brokers to use it and integrate it into their MT4 and MT5 servers. The liquidity bridge is a key part of any brokerage as it forms the ‘bridge’ between the trading platform (MT4 or MT5 in this case) and the liquidity providers on the other end. This helps to push the trades from the trading platform to the liquidity providers for their clearing and it needs to ensure that all the trades, big and small, are correctly pushed, cleared, and then reported back to the trading platform. Even if a single trade fails or is not properly reported back to the platform, then it could mean large losses for the broker and that is why reliability is a key factor of the bridge.

Flexible Aggregation Methods

The bridge built by T4B is reported to have the flexibility for the brokes to adjust their settings and integrate it with any liquidity provider who has a FIX connection which is the standard in the industry. There are 6 aggregation methods and the large orders are also processed very quickly as they are broken down into smaller orders by the bridge through Continuous Execution technology. The bridge also aggregates the orders at the end of the day which removes a lot of manual work that the broker has to perform daily.

The platform also has a monitoring page that gives a glimpse of the existing state of the system at a glance and the broker would then be able to ensure whether the bridge is operating as per expectations or whether any action is needed from the broker in case of any emergency.
