Signal Stream launches advanced technical analysis tool for MT4 and MT5

Rick Steves

The firm brings market insights to retail traders via dynamic emails, instant messaging, fast APIs to dedicated MT4/5 plugins and widgets for web. 

Acuity’s Signal Centre has launched a new intuitive platform to better support traders through the ‘noise paralysis’ of inaccurate and confusing signal reporting.

Going by the name of Signal Stream, the tool unlocks trading tips at all levels from novice to advanced traders through a tiled visual experience giving traders an interactive and intuitive approach.

The platform now features AI back-end updates that incorporate the very latest advancements in fintech innovation. All clients are now able to access industry leading sentiment analysis tools, alpha generating alternative data integrations, and economic calendars to give greater clarity on the signals and strategy that shape trading ideas.

The service offers expert technical analysis, trading strategy, alternative data sets, and investment decision tools as well as new radial gauges to explore sentiment scores and financial events forecasting.

Signal Stream is integrated with the MT4 and MT5 platforms as MetaTrader continues to serve as a leading trading platform for the FX industry. Signal Stream’s MT4/5 presence features advanced trading and charting features and integrated stock prices, especially around futures and options.

Steve O’Hare MSTA, Director of Signal Centre, commented: “We’ve worked intensively alongside some of the best AI and fintech data academics to develop a trading tools platform that cuts through the noise of often misleading trading information straight to the heart of signal reporting.

“The pandemic and the explosion of cryptocurrencies has had an unprecedented impact on the uptick of new and often inexperienced clients playing the market. As an FCA authorised and regulated company it’s our responsibility to ensure we are continuously evolving our service to provide market clarity while applying surgical precision to our technical analysis.”15% of current retail investors

According to Charles Schwab, 15% of current retail investors began playing the market in 2020 while JMP Securities reported 10 million new clients in 2020 and 7.8 million new retail clients in January and February 2021.

‘Get rich quick’ schemes and more unregulated trading ‘experts’ and ‘advisors’ have flooded social platforms. Signal Centre, a UK FCA-regulated entity, aims to counter that.

The firm applies technical analysis to a range of indices, currencies and commodities to empower brokers to access high quality, rich data signal insights, overhauled their platform to maximise the trader’s user experience and also their engagement.

Signal Centre has received feedback from clients showing that over 80% of traders preferred to engage and utilize Signal Centre’s new dashboard as opposed to another non-FCA regulated competitor.

The firm brings market insights to retail traders via dynamic emails, instant messaging, fast APIs to dedicated MT4/5 plugins and widgets for web.
