  • Navigating the disruption: Fast recovery of Prop Brokers with the Match-Trader server

    Last week, several prominent Prop Trading firms had to suspend their operations, facing a sudden threat to their business continuity. As many prop trading firms have developed in tandem with established Forex brokers, often sharing a trading server, this challenge stirred unease and concerns over the entire industry, highlighting the critical need for adaptable, robust trading platforms capable of responding swiftly to unexpected disruptions. Match-Trader has demonstrated its capacity to be such a platform, offering advanced technology, seamless integration, and an understanding of the unique demands of Prop Trading Brokers, now racing against time to future-proof their businesses. 

    What’s next for the Prop Trading community?

    Brokers with backup platforms, enabling a swift switch and user migration, have an edge. However, there is still the aspect of convincing traders to change their preferences and move to another system with a different interface. The situation is more complex for those reliant on a single platform provider. What options remained for businesses forced to halt operations suddenly? 

    Race against time for Prop Trading firms

    Such brokers face a critical challenge to swiftly restore trading services for their clients. Reopening a business from the ground up is challenging, to say the least. Even for those who know the market well and can choose a new platform easily, they still face some obstacles. These include dealing with procedures, moving accounts, and, crucial for prop trading firms, integrating dedicated CRM systems to manage funded accounts. 

    This is exactly the setback a well-known proprietary trading broker, Funding Pips, encountered when their trading platform was blocked. Seeking a fast track to restoring their trading operations for a substantial number of 100,000 accounts, they opted for the Match-Trader platform.
