EL SEGUNDO, Calif., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- MB Trading (MBT), one of the
leading direct-access brokerages in the United States, is pleased to announce
a partnership with TradeFreedom Securities, Inc., a Canadian-based broker
dealer, to provide clients of each firm with greater, unfettered access to a
broad range of trading opportunities in North America.
"We've been looking for the right partner in Canada, one that values
technology and the role it can play in providing a trading platform that meets
the needs of today's active trader, and we found what we were looking for in
TradeFreedom," said MB Trading's CEO and co-founder Ross Ditlove. "In many
respects TradeFreedom mirrors our approach of catering to individuals who are
serious about their trading and investing needs."
Dominique Ferst, co-founder of TradeFreedom, was equally encouraged about
"We're excited about this relationship," said Ferst. "Both our retail and
institutional clients will benefit from MB Trading's technology as well as its
capabilities as a brokerage that understands the needs of active traders."
TradeFreedom clients will have access to MB Trading's smart-routing
technology, MBTX, as well as the CME montage, which will be available to
TradeFreedom clients next quarter. On the institutional side, clients can
also use MB Trading's technology, via its SDK or FIX connection.
Ditlove added that the decision to partner with TradeFreedom was in
response to a "constant stream of requests from traders in Canada. With this
relationship, they'll get the support and service of a broker within their own
country, coupled with the direct-access technology of MBT."
The newly formed partnership includes cooperative marketing efforts to
educate the customers of each firm about the trading opportunities that are
available in both the United States and Canada. The MBT navigator platform,
which will be licensed as the TradeFreedom Navigator, will continue to support
the ability to integrate into leading quote platforms. However, it will now
offer the added benefit of access to both the US and Canadian exchanges, as
well as the ability to trade Futures."
