Risk management should be high on the agenda for every broker. It became a particular priority following the SNB event in January 2015 when the importance of having strong risk management tools became apparent. Gold-i products can help MT4/MT5 brokers to manage their risk effectively and have a clear overview of their exposure in real-time.
The Gold-i MT4 Bridge and MT5 Gateway give brokers the ability to control their risk by deciding which trades should be A-Booked and which should be B-Booked. They offer flexibility for brokers to decide whether STP, partial order STP or warehousing is the most appropriate route for client trades in order to minimise their exposure.
We have added a broad range of complementary tools to help brokers to understand their exposure and set up alerts to mitigate risk. Tools such as the Gold-i RiskDB, Margin Caller and Quote Checker have proved invaluable in helping brokers to manage their risk more effectively.
In addition, we developed Gold-i Visual Edge – our powerful risk management and business analysis software - to enable brokers to have a clear, visual overview of their exposure to risk in real-time. Using customised dashboards and business analysis features, brokers can access key data relating to their trading operations and can drill down by any attribute including currency, symbol, asset class, country, LP or client. Brokers can set up and receive alerts when exposure exceeds pre-defined limits.
