Calamatta Cuschieri has unveiled the mobile version of its live online trading platform, CCTrader™.
The company has also announced some major developments, including its intention to take the platform to overseas markets.
Other developments include lower costs on US Market Trades, which now start from $9.99, and the extension of trading desk support hours to US markets close at 10pm. US stock quotes are also live – rather than subject to a 15-minute delay. The platform now also features advanced HTML5 charting.
CCTrader™ was designed and is being developed entirely in-house, representing a considerable investment in IT.
Commenting on the Internationalisation, Calamatta Cuschieri’ s co- CEO, Alan Cuschieri said : “There are a number of reasons why CCTrader™ is generating international interest; it is a multi-asset platform which includes a number of customised functions which are very popular, but ultimately we believe its success is due to customer service. We have a growing number of overseas clients who are finding the platform to be user-friendly and competitive. We already have an Italian version of the platform as well as fluent trading desk and customer care staff. The company will be now establishing more dominant presence internationally, further details on this development will be announced in due course”.
CCTrader™ covers all the major investment classes, ranging from mutual funds, bonds, and savings plans to equities and ETFs on 35 exchanges. The platform provides access to over 30,000 instruments, including all local investments such as government bonds, IPOs and local retail funds.
No deposit is required to open an account. The platform can be accessed directly via live.cctrader.com.
Calamatta Cuschieri group had just 20 staff when it launched the platform in June 2011; it now has over 60.
