CitiFX Pro Launches New MetaTrader 4

09:00 EDT Tuesday, August 06, 2013

NEW YORK (Business Wire) -- CitiFX Pro, the award-winning margin FX platform from Citi has launched a new MetaTrader 4, offering free virtual private servers (VPS) to both trial and live account holders. Clients can access the MetaTrader 4 interface via desktop download, mobile app or free VPS.

“The importance of a reliable, low-latency MetaTrader 4 offering cannot be overstated,” said Alex Knight, Global Head of Margin FX Trading at Citi. “With a strong MetaTrader 4 product from a leading bank in FX, Citi can further expand its foothold with experienced active individuals and smaller institutional customers.”

The MetaTrader 4 platform was built by MetaQuotes Software Corp, a global leader in Forex B2B platform development. Beyond improving the core MetaTrader 4 offering, Citi's re-launch increases accessibility via mobile and enables features popular among MetaTrader 4 traders. App-based access for iOS and Android OS are provided by MetaQuotes Software Corp along with a mobile browser based VPS.

“We conceived MetaTrader 4 as a revolutionary and innovative online trading platform with a complete and easy-to-use set of analytical tools,” said Gaies Chreis, Chief Operating Officer of MetaQuotes Software Corp. “Citi's enhanced focus on MetaTrader 4 further demonstrates the strong relationship between our two companies.”

“In our live testing of the upgraded system, clients have enjoyed accessing the analysis tools within the VPS interface,” said Kevin Wilson, North American Head of Margin FX Trading at Citi. “Both demo and live users can host indicators and strategies free of charge, which is a unique way to test our pricing and evolutionary algorithm compatibility.”

CitiFX Pro is Citi's online forex trading platform for active individual and small institutional clients including commodity trading advisors, broker-dealers, money managers and hedge funds. Additional information may be found at
