Best Execution & Lower Cost

The Markets Invest ECN offers cutting-edge and high-performance technology while leveraging our ten years of trading relationships to give you direct and anonymous access to a truly unique and diversified mix of liquidity.

For the first time ever you’ll have access to the same level of transparency as institutional traders, including; which bank filled your trade, the slippage, speed, order book, and tick charts showing market impact. Oh yeah, and we provide detailed trade receipts for all of your trades.

What does ECN mean?

Electronic Communications Networks or ‘ECNs’ are off-exchange execution venues that allow market participants to trade with a range of counter-parties anonymously. They are the main trading venues for OTC markets such as Foreign Exchange and Metals.

This basically means ECNs provide the technology and venue for price makers aka ‘liquidity providers’ to distribute their liquidity. Price takers (traders) can see these prices and execute trades against them. The ECN is therefore responsible for prices/quotes and the execution of orders.

Institutional ECNs can be accessed through a prime broker while retail ECNs can be accessed through a retail forex broker. There are different characteristics to each, however, they both provide access to the interbank foreign exchange market. If you’re not getting direct (STP) access to interbank liquidity then you’re not trading via an ECN.

Characteristics of institutional and retail ECNs

For Institutional Traders
For Retail Brokers and Traders

Institutional + Retail

Markets Invest entered a strategic joint venture with Institutional ECN provider ‘TraderTools’ in 2020 and now offers this as a standalone product to its institutional clients.

Is Markets Invest really an ECN broker?

Trade receipts showing ‘True’ ECN execution

Markets Invest provides automated trade receipts for all of your trades so you can see which bank executed your trade, fill speed, slippage, the full order book, and even a tick chart for market impact.

Trade receipts are a tool to empower our traders to make better trading decisions using the same information institutional traders rely on. This is just another way we’re leveling the playing field for the betterment of all retail traders.
