FAQ
Business Operations:
 
What is ActTrader®?
ActTrader is the core software that runs the trading platform. Because the system design is modular, it is the foundation for adding functionality by adding the modules to your platform which are best suited to your business operations.
 
How long does it take to set up the ActTrader?
Your new software can be up and running in as few as five business days. However, depending on length of training and customization requirements, the setup process could take up to ten days.
 
What options for clearing arrangements do you offer?
Clearing is done either automatically by the platform or manually through the dealing-module. ActForex does not engage in trading or operate as clearinghouse so Clients are free to choose any clearinghouse they wish, which is an enormous advantage over clearing houses that also offer trading platforms. ActForex’s Business Development Specialists are happy to assist in setting up clearing arrangements.

What instruments does the platform accept?
ActTrader can trade any instrument, including any currency pair and commodities. All instruments can be traded over the same account.
 
What news feeds to your offer?
ActForex can connect your platform to any news feed of your choice, and you can select which of your traders receive the news feed.

Do I need to expand my IT department to support an ActForex trading platform?
No. As a Managed Service Provider (MSP), ActForex provides a turnkey solution along with complete technical support and software updates, all at a cost much lower than would otherwise be required by other alternatives.
 
Where is trading system actually hosted?
The trading system is hosted at ActForex’s SAS-70 certified data center and ActForex handles all connectivity issues. All third party price and order feeds are routed through ActForex’s data center so licensees do not need their own servers or IT department.
