21 October 2014 - City Index has partnered with Gold-i to launch a new two way synchronisation between MT4 and City Index’s G2 Trading Platform. The new integration allows customers who wish to trade on MT4 to see all their trades on their City Index trading platform. It provides greater choice and flexibility to clients, enabling them to trade on MT4 from their mobile phones or tablets as well as on PCs and laptops.
With the tight integration from Gold-i, MT4 and G2 are synched in real-time. City Index’s MT4 offering is highly competitive, providing traders with access to a host of powerful features, such as one-click trading, professional charting packages, a margin-live widget for real-time information and customisable leverage for each forex pair.
City Index believes its MT4 offering will help to gain new clients, attracted by City Index’s tight prices and exclusive features. It will also appeal to existing clients who are used to the quality of execution available with the G2 Trading Platform but want to use MT4 to trade FX.
Mike Lear, CIO at City Index commented, “Unlike providers who limit MT4 access to one platform, an MT4 account with City Index enables clients to access our full range of desktop trading platforms as well as mobile and tablet apps. This innovation means that clients have unrestricted access to their MT4 account whenever they want, even when they’re on the move. Our early users have been doing a significant amount of trading on mobiles, opening a trade on an iPad, for example, and closing it on their mobile phone. We believe our new offering is very compelling, putting us at the forefront of MT4 mobile trading.
“We selected Gold-i because of their strong reputation in highly complex trading system integrations. The Gold-i management team has a wealth of institutional experience and really understood our business needs. They have delivered an extremely professional service, with exceptionally high integration capabilities.”
According to Tom Higgins, CEO of Gold-i, “This is probably the most tightly integrated system in the world. It’s been a fantastic experience to work with City Index and build something so specialised which will have such a significant impact in the market. I believe it’s a big step forward to be able to offer such two way synchronisations. Clients are able to use the MT4 structure which they are familiar with but with a wide range of enhancements available from City Index.”
