Trading Products Advanced Markets provides the following trading products: FX is the largest and most liquid asset class in the world, with a daily turnover of $6.6 trillion according to the Bank of International Settlement (BIS) Triennial Survey. Advanced Markets Group offers over 60 currency pairs, all spot contracts, ranging from major G7 currencies to emerging market currencies like South African rand, Mexican peso, Russian ruble and Israeli shekel.   Precious metals are considered safe-haven assets and have historically performed well during times of inflation and economic, or global, uncertainty. Investing in precious metals helps to diversify your portfolio. Precious metals have always been deemed by investors as a store of wealth, with gold being the metal most commonly used for this purpose. Today there are many ways to invest and trade in gold and other precious metals like investment in physical metal bars and coins or investing indirectly via financial derivative instruments such as an ETF (exchange traded fund), mutual funds, futures contracts or spot contracts.   Commodities are the raw materials that keep global economies running. Energy commodities keep the lights on – think oil and gas, agricultural commodities like soybeans, corn, beef and sugar keep our bellies full. Historically, commodities have had a low correlation with other asset classes, and can diversify your portfolio and help guard against collapse in stock and bond markets. You can buy and sell physical assets or can invest via financial derivative products like futures, options, ETFs, ETCs (Exchange Traded Commodities) and spot contracts. Commodities markets are volatile and prices are affected by everything from geopolitical events to extreme weather.   CFDs are contracts which deliver the return of a market index. The price of the Index CFD is directly related to the price of the exchange-quoted related futures contract. The price of the Index CFD tracks the movement of the underlying futures contract, though the price levels differ by an adjustment for interest and dividends (fair-value adjustment). Index CFD trading provides a way to speculate on the performance of each overall stock market, as opposed to selecting individual stocks and shares. Besides diversification, World Indices CFD can be used as a hedging tool.   Cryptocurrencies are an attempt to facilitate payments without involvement of a central body. Bitcoin was launched in 2008 but cryptocurrencies really only broke into mainstream consciousness in 2017 when cryptocurrencies’ prices surged. One can invest in crypto by buying and selling coins on one of the crypto exchanges, but you can also invest in cryptocurrency bundles or passive index funds as well as crypto CFD contracts which allow you to invest in crypto market without owning underlying crypto assets (which is a security challenge on its own). A cryptocurrency CFD allows you to predict the future change in value of specific underlying cryptocurrencies. Most CFDs allow you to open contracts on the performance of a crypto relative to a fiat currency, usually US dollars (USD).   Equity CFDs (also referred to as share CFDs) are contracts that mirror the performance of the underlying market security with the profit or loss calculated as the difference between the purchase price and the selling price. The only difference is that you don’t physically own the underlying shares. An equity CFD trader has an agreement with Advanced Markets Group to pay or receive the cash difference between opening and closing price of the contract for difference.

By integrating position/order/balance data from Advanced Markets into your own client portal, brokers can build trading functionality into their existing client portal/website.  C book has been popularized in FX in around 2015 as an augmented method of covering FX transactions. FX Brokerages are generally categorized as A Book (Agency, or Straight Through processing) model and B Book (Principal, or Market Maker model), with a combination of the two known as Hybrid. C Book is bringing the A book and B book together by capitalizing on efficiencies of each model and allowing brokerages to generate extra revenues by smartly routing trades based on their knowledge of the customer’s flow.   For the MTA4/MTA5 bridge, the main purpose of the liquidity bridge is to facilitate “Straight Through Processing” (often described as A book execution) by connecting the MT4 (or MT5) server with a particular Liquidity Provider or Price Aggregator.Advanced Markets Group works with over 40 different bridge providers around the world.   A VPS (Virtual Private Server) allows traders who use proprietary algo strategies or Expert Advisor (EA) automated trading systems to minimize latency between the trading terminal and the trade server. By running the system from a secure data center location, clients also benefit by running their EA’s with 100% up-time, resulting in significantly faster executions, higher trading volumes and fewer missed opportunities.
