FXOpen, the renowned FX and CFD broker is a longtime partner of Soft-FX, but the software firm has also developed projects for other big names within the industry, including GKFX Prime, FXPrimus, and Libertex. 

The trading industry is undoubtedly going multi asset and software development firms have been making the necessary updates to their trading platforms in order to address the demands from brokers.

As part of the ongoing changes in the trading industry landscape, Soft-FX has introduced a Stock Events Module to its flasgship product, the TickTrader trading platform.

Designed to manage data during corporate actions, the stock events module eliminat gaps arising from events such as splits, dividends, and mergers and acquisitions.

One more step towards multi asset brokerage

Soft-FX is a fintech development firm founded in 2005 which has since established a multitude of long-term partnerships with forex and cryptocurrency brokers, cryptocurrency exchanges, dealers, banks and funds.

The addition of the stock events module to TickTrader allows brokers to configure stock operations on the trading platform depending on corporate actions that occur at a particular point in time.

Corporate action refers to any activity that brings material change to a stock-issuing organization and impacts its stakeholders. Dividends, stock splits, mergers, acquisitions, and spinoffs are examples of corporate actions, all of which can require significant resources to process in the absence of automation.

Soft-FX explained how it works: “Consider such corporate events as stock splits. Stock splits may create large gaps on the chart, leading to a false impression of a sharp drop in the price. Based on the chart, technical indicators would give misleading sell signals. TickTrader Stock Events module helps to counteract such occurrences.”

“The module also allows you to adjust data by eliminating gaps arising from events such as dividends, and mergers and acquisitions, enabling your platform to accept adjustments as seamlessly as possible.”
