RTFX (ex-Realtime Forex) describes itself as an online market maker and asset manager for foreign exchange. The company associated with this website has gone through some noteworthy changes in its identity in the recent past.
An entity called RTFX Ltd was born in March 2009 when Realtime Forex SA decided to split its activities in two separate entities. This move was occasioned by changes in Switzerland's banking regulations. RTFX Ltd holds a broker/dealer and asset manager license and is regulated by the MFSA since April 2009.
Realtime Forex SA commenced operations in January 2000 after being founded by the partners of Gay, Glauser & Cie, a Swiss based company established in 1995. Realtime Forex SA can still lay claim to the distinction of being Switzerland's first online market maker for foreign exchange.
Today RTFX Ltd operates as a financial company under European regulations. It is operated separately from the technology development entity, which remains in Geneva and currently operates under the name Realtime Financial Technologies SA.
Live market prices, tight spreads,commission-free trading, multiple account trading, streaming market news, online charting and back-office capabilities are the main features of the services offered by RTFX Ltd today.
Unlike somewhat similar online traders, RTFX offers its clients the choice of three different and proprietary trading platforms. RTFX Trader is offered to the beginner trader and also sports features that seasoned traders demand in a trading platform. The RTFX Web Trader™ platform is a simplified version of its Java application offering the advantage of not requiring any installation and operates directly from most (if not all) web browsers. RTFX Mobile™ is a simplified version of RTFX’s web application that works on any phone capable of browsing the Internet securely.
In addition, the RTFX website offers a free demo option for new traders and educational content that compares favorably to competitive offerings found elsewhere on the Web.
RTFX also offers solutions for money managers wishing to manage their own clients' account.
RTFX has also been offering its own algorithmic-based Asset Management Services. Since launch, RTFX Asset Management service has returned very respectable performances to the thousands of retail, professional and institutional investors, who have opted to invest in the foreign exchange market through this unique service.
