OptionsCity Brings Cloud-Based Futures Trading Platform to Phillip Capital Clients


OptionsCity Software, a global provider of futures and options trading and analytics solutions, have announced that Phillip Capital Inc.’s clients now have access to its CityTrader platform. CityTrader, recently profiled in Barron’s, is an intuitive cloud-based trading system designed for futures and options traders.


“The futures and options markets have been among the fastest-growing over the past couple years – a trend that we expect will continue as trading increasingly moves electronic,” said OptionsCity CEO and cofounder Hazem Dawani. “However, before CityTrader, the tools to trade futures and options either required high levels of sophistication, expensive hardware or lacked functionality. CityTrader is both robust and easy-to-use.”


CityTrader is one of five outside platforms that Phillip Capital’s base of retail customers, professional traders, Commodity Trading Advisors and FCM’s can choose from.


“As markets become more competitive, our clients have looked to expand into new strategies and asset classes,” said David Klotz, vice president and head of electronic markets at Phillip Capital. “At Phillip Capital, we are committed to offering traders access to the best front-end trading platforms, all of which support high-volume strategies across global exchanges. CityTrader is not only beautifully designed, it also has a powerful engine behind it.”
