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 the partnership. "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." About TradeFreedom Securities, Inc.
