In an ambitious bid to update legacy systems, improve cybersecurity and enhance the customer experience, the capital markets industry remains profoundly intertwined with technology. As the millennial investor base continues to grow in the online trading space, providers are looking forward to cutting down on monthly fees and offering low-cost price-per-trade services for trading platforms. According to market research by IBISWorld in 2017, trading makes up for almost 59.5 percent of the industry revenue. The industry’s relationship with technology this year has been powered by AI, process automation, blockchain, and data security. With the trading platform providers currently focusing on the assimilation of advanced charting tools, traders can access real-time market analyses on the trading platforms along with time and trade based options. AI will facilitate intuitive presentations on graphs and charts leveraging AI, helping traders export information to in-built applications.
In addition, these charting tools enable customers to save customizable trading layouts for future use. Providers are aimed at implementing cloud-based technology into trading interfaces, allowing minimal intervention of other software applications into the platform, promoting high-end security while trading. That’s not all; the advanced trading interfaces facilitate multiple monitor detection and support, empowering traders to conduct faster transactions through blockchain and reducing the chances of fraudulent activities. Besides, trading platform providers look into mobile transactions, enabling users to engage in trading irrespective of their location or time.
