Our CEO, Anthony Brocco has been a part of the financial industry since 2001 when Foreign Exchange trading was made available to individual traders in the United States. Advanced Markets was formed when he realized a need for a foreign exchange firm that could deliver a transparent and conflict-free trading environment. Advanced Markets executes trades based on pricing straight from leading FX banks, not from a deal desk. We do not take any of the risk as we lay off all trade positions with the bank market makers at point of execution. Advanced Markets LLC is a firm focused on giving clients what they want and deserve; great pricing, great execution and great customer service.
The first step Advanced Markets took to accomplish this goal was to begin building relationships with top foreign exchange banks, interbank participants that make up the price liquidity of the FX market. We presented our Direct Market Access model (DMA) as well as our technologically advanced platforms to banks, who realized that we are distinctive. We currently have multiple bank feeds which continue to evolve based on our clients needs and the ever changing market environment . Relationships with our interbank price providers are made easier by the partnered involvement of Macquarie Bank as our price broker and source of a number of resources and levels of assistance in evolution of the company.
Our platform provides immediate execution on a wide range of trading options and order types. We offer highly competitive spreads,24-hour technical support, and no requotes. Advanced Markets also offers a front-end platform as well as API and FIX connections to enable clients to optimally access the FX market according to their trading preferences and needs.
Advanced Markets’ clientele, inclusive of individual traders, hedge fund managers, introducing brokers, white label partners, and financial institutions worldwide is growing significantly. Our DMA model, bank relationships, technology and support are the key reasons we are quickly becoming one of the leaders in forex trading.
Advanced Markets is committed to its core mission of empowering FX traders with direct market access to prices derived from the interbank FX market without manipulation or re-quotes. We will continue to enhance our FX DMA model, technology and liquidity providers when necessary in order to maintain the transparency, liquidity access and operational efficiencies FX traders expect from us.
