Saxo Capital Markets Australia has launched SaxoTraderPRO, a new platform for professional active traders and institutional investors.
SaxoTraderPRO was built leveraging Saxo’s unparalleled global markets access, offering private and institutional clients over 35,000 financial instruments across all asset classes, including ETFs, Stocks, Bonds, CFDs, Forex, Futures and Options, all from a single account.
The new platform is an advanced multi-screen desktop trading solution, offering a fully customisable workspace for both Windows and Mac with no monthly fees.
Specially developed for professional active traders, SaxoTraderPRO is set to replace the current SaxoTrader platform, while SaxoTraderGO, launched in 2015, continues to cater to a wider range of retail traders and investors.
Saxo Capital Markets Australia Chief Executive, Ben Smoker, says: “We’re always looking to push the boundaries in trading technology and innovation across the spectrum of the market. The development process behind SaxoTraderPRO is very much in line with our vision to democratise markets, providing traders and investors with institutional-grade professional tools, functionality and market access at a low cost.”
Saxo’s new platform combines the company’s unparalleled access to global capital markets with a high level of control through advanced trading tools, a fast and reliable execution capability and an extensive set of customisable options to fit clients’ individual trading needs.
SaxoTraderPRO uses the latest front-end technologies such as HTML5/JS/REACT, connecting to a single REST API that clients can also access directly to develop their own bespoke functionality for trading, risk monitoring or reporting purposes.
Saxo’s Head of Platforms, Christian Hammer (pictured), says: “We have placed our clients at the centre of the development process with constant feedback, early prototyping and A/B testing with in-lab usability studies. A lot of unique features have been developed based on specific feedback from our beta users, such as the margin break down module to help our clients manage their risk.”
“We are very proud of the result of our efforts and believe that SaxoTraderPRO is well suited for active professional traders and institutional clients.”
The rollout of SaxoTraderPRO to the Australian market today follows its launch earlier this month in the UK, Denmark, Hong Kong and Singapore.
