“FXCM added NinjaTrader to its offerings in response to high demand and in recognition of its distinctive features and the uniquely customizable trading experience it offers,” said Drew Niv, CEO of FXCM.” “NinjaTrader offers hundreds of dynamic analytic tools both natively and through its vast 3rd party partner ecosystem, as well as the ability for individual traders to construct automated trading strategies with both point and click construction and through an advanced C# development environment, which are tools we know our clients are looking for.”
NinjaTrader, like FXCM, also has a commitment to offering the best possible educational resources to its users. NinjaTrader offers free, daily trading webinars, an interactive product training video library, and an active online forum, all of which FXCM clients will have access to.
