E-trading technology is an essential technology that drives change in the financial industry. It is the core driver for the continuous development of the financial industry.
The e-trading platform is the carrier of e-trading technology. Today we talk about the multi-asset e-trading platform.
What is an E-trading Platform?
E-trading refers to the use of computer technology to bring buyers and sellers together in a virtual marketplace to trade, instead of on a trading floor.
An electronic trading platform, also known as an online trading platform, is a computer software program that can be used to place orders for financial products over a network with a financial institution. Various financial products can be traded by the trading platform, over an electronic communications network (ECN) that automatically matches buy and sell orders at specified prices.
This includes products such as stocks, bonds, currencies, commodities, derivatives and others, with financial institutions, such as brokers, market makers, investment banks or stock exchanges. Such platforms allow e-trading to be carried out by users from any location. It eliminates the limitations of location and allows for a larger transaction volume and more assets.
