Capital Index a Broker for the Future

With news spreading across the globe faster than ever the impact of latency on your trading becomes greater and greater so your trading platform and its location are of vital importance.

We have invested heavily in our infrastructure to ensure that our growth will always be sustainable and we will always ensure that we have built in redundancy to ensure a seamless trading experience for our clients.

Trade within an Institutional Framework

A vast number of the world’s foreign exchange transactions (forex trades) occur within the high-tech trading environment of UK’s exclusive data centre in LD4, hosting a full range of redundancy, interconnectivity, support, and monitoring services. NY4 is the US equivalent of LD4, and Capital Index hosts MT4 servers in both LD4 and NY4 which enables ultra-fast cross-connectivity between our servers and all of its liquidity providers. Dedicated lines provide the lowest latency possible, ensuring the fastest execution speeds for clients. If you are using our Virtual Private Server (VPS) this is located in the same datacentre to maximise speed of trading.

Our trade servers are fully cross-connected to our liquidity sources. This minimises the time to market from our server resulting in better execution, meaning lower slippage and less rejections.

Our servers are professionally managed by teams of technicians that solely deal with trading the financial markets, this gives us unparalleled service ensuring that we give our traders the maximum uptime on the servers. In addition to this our provisions for redundancy are second to none, with 24 hour network monitoring the slightest hint of an issue will be dealt with immediately. Being housed in adjacent cages to multinational banks and other liquidity sources allows us the same level of security as these institutions and that allows us to protect our clients in the most secure fashion possible.

* Our liquidity providers may act as a market maker.
