The ongoing increase in accessibility to Chicago’s finest institutional executing venues has taken a step further today as recently established trading software company Rival Systems has introduced the provision of ICE Futures US and ICE Futures Europe products on its Rival Trader platform, providing exchange-traded futures and options on the two prominent venues which are part of multi-asset electronic exchange technology provider and venue Intercontinental Exchange Inc (NYSE:ICE).

Over the past year, FinanceFeeds has conducted in depth investigations into the developments within North America’s venues and the companies that are partnering with them in order to bring exchange traded assets to within the realms of retail traders.

One particular example was the exclusive conversation between FinanceFeeds CEO Andrew Saks-McLeod and DriveWealth’s Head of Partnerships Mark Smedley at the FXIC Forex Industry Conference in Shanghai, China in December, during which Mr. Smedley explained how his company provides exchange traded US equities to a retail audience and hosts it on a retail platform to serve clients globally across any level of income, and every level of investing via partnerships with DirectFX and CQG. The full interview can be viewed here:

Additionally, at approximately the same time, Tim Brankin, Tim Brankin, Managing Director of TradeToolsFX explained to FinanceFeeds the full functionality behind the integrated exchange-traded binary options that can be traded directly from a retail MetaTrader 4 platform, which is a world first, and Phillip Capital CEO Teyu Che Chern explained at a private function in downtown Manhattan, New York during a meeting with Andrew Saks-McLeod that the Singaporean futures giant had forged partnerships with US exchanges in order to offer retail products to North American customers on an exchange-traded basis.

Indeed, the US is leading the drive toward exchange traded retail FX, equities and futures, and today’s development by Rival Systems further indicates this direction.

Robert D’Arco, CEO of Rival Systems today made a corporate statement on the launch of the new product

“We are pleased to offer connectivity to ICE futures markets. We completed development quickly to meet user demand, and clients can enjoy immediate access while taking advantage of the many features of Rival Trader. The addition of ICE Futures allows our users to incorporate important products into their strategies, from Russell indexes, to crude oil and natural gas, to soft commodities” – Robert D’Arco, CEO, Rival Systems.

“As we continue to grow in the U.S. and begin our expansion into Europe later this year, our goal is to provide professional traders with access to all of the exchanges, advanced features and expert support they need to compete in today’s markets.”

Algorithmic traders can now leverage the speed of the Rival API and one-on-one support from a member of our development team to capitalize on their trading ideas. This is a great time for traders to upgrade their technology and take advantage of the volatility in equity and energy markets” concluded Mr. D’Arco.
