By June 24, 2019 No Comments

Melbourne, VIC – OpenMarkets Australia, a digital ASX trading platform with more than 30,000 retail and intermediary trading accounts, has launched a new trading platform, OpenMarkets Equix.

Available in web and mobile format, Equix is designed to meet the needs of the self-directed investor and financial advisers wanting fast, responsive, low-cost online tools for trading and investing in Australian securities.

Clients can trade ASX-listed equities, warrants and the full suite of exchange-traded products, including ETFs, as well as analyse their portfolio performance, access charts, market depth, create alerts, set up watchlists and download reports and contract notes.

Its click-refresh-live-data version is free, or customers can upgrade to streaming data at a cost. The mobile app is available on Apple and Android devices.

OpenMarkets CEO Mr Andrea Marani says: “This is a significant development for OpenMarkets and we’ve already received a very positive response from clients.

“The decision to develop a new trading platform came after identifying the need to give clients trading tools that could be customised and integrated into OpenMarkets broader platform ecosystem, such as access to global markets and complementary third-party tools.

“The mobile app really enhances the trading experience by giving our clients on-the-go access to what is happening in the markets. It is also a significant step in delivery and execution of our digital strategy that has mobility as a key focus”, Mr Marani said.

The initial Equix release will be the first of many future product enhancements that will deliver further market-leading trading and data tools to retail and intermediary clients.

The Equix Web version has been built using HTML 5 technology for speed and performance and is designed in a linkable widget-based format with the ability to expand to multiple monitors, allowing users to customise their trade screening.

OpenMarkets Equix has been developed in partnership with and is provided under licence from Quant Edge Pty Ltd, an algorithmic trading technology company headquartered in Hanoi, Vietnam.

“Partnering with Quant Edge will deliver enormous benefits to OpenMarkets. They are extremely responsive to requests and extremely fast at adding new features – exactly the service our clients want and expect,” Mr Marani says.
