Technology-led electronic trading stalwart OANDA Corporation has today announced the connection of its proprietary fxTrade platform to CQG’s enterprise API division, Continuum.

Available for US-customers, the connection to OANDA Corporation’s fxTrade platform is provided by Continuum’s range-topping API, Continuum Connect, and will provide customers that use CQG Integrated Client, CQG QTrader, CQG M and CQG FX with the ability to connect to the fxTrade platform, as well as those who have written third party applications via CQG’s suite of API products.

Opensource platforms have become very much in favor among fintech-orientated companies, OANDA Corporation being one particularly urbane example, another being Saxo Bank with its SaxoTraderGo platform.

This particular development comes three years to this week after Spotware Systems launched its first solution aimed at providing third party application developers with the ability to write their own trading applications for the cTrader platform.

Mike Glista, Director of Order Routing at Continuum stated

“Our partnership with OANDA builds on our existing FX capabilities and allows us to extend coverage to a broader market.”
