OptionsCity to Sponsor NIBA New York Conference


OptionsCity has signed on to sponsor the NIBA New York Conference on April 26, 2017. The National Introducing Broker Association (NIBA) now includes not only Introducing Brokers but also Commodity Trading Advisors, Associated Persons, and Futures Commission Merchants (FCMs), as well as other participants in the futures, options, and swaps markets. 

As Introducing Brokers (IBs) look to differentiate themselves in the marketplace, they are taking advantage of resources like OptionsCity’s CityTrader and City API platforms. Specifically, the CityTrader platform, which offers web-based futures and options trading, can be white-labeled by IBs and offered as a low cost trading solution for their customers. By white-labeling CityTrader, IBs can customize the branding, naming, and colors of the application creating a front-end trading application which further builds on their name and helps differentiate them in the marketplace. In addition, the REST-based City API allows for even more customized and tailored solutions for specific audiences. The City platform offers easy access to major exchanges including CME Group and ICE. The accompanying City Admin tool lets IBs and FCMs manage risk limits and market access for their customers. The platform can be accessed via a mobile application, CityTrader Mobile, which is available on the iTunes App Store for iPhones and Google Android store for Android devices. 

This year the NIBA conference includes a post-event happy hour in conjunction with TradersFulcrum who are expanding their community of traders from Chicago to New York. Registration for the NIBA New York show can be found at
