Why Every Futures Trader Should Take A Closer Look at CityTrader

Yes, as an employee of OptionsCity, I'm biased. But having worked in the futures industry for over a decade and having attended countless trading software demonstrations, I know when I see something new and innovative in the fin tech software space. For the most part, innovation is hard to come by with futures trading software. Many leading futures trading software providers have been around for a long time and are entrenched in their legacy systems and user interfaces. CityTrader, on the other hand, benefits from being built from the ground up, giving users the functionalities they want without being stuck with the look and feel of an existing system. In fact, the user interface at CityTrader is based on leading HTML5 software applications that you are likely to see in other industries with more consumer-friendly applications. This fresh approach to a futures trading application results in a platform that is as easy to use as Facebook, Microsoft Word, or a number of native Mac OS applications.
